Open Fortress is a source mod, meaning it cannot be installed in traditional ways. The OPF team uses SVN as a tool to deliver the files you need to a folder you need. They have a guide on their website here (https://openfortress.fun/install-guide/), but look before for some Q&A not featured on that website.

What do I need to install?

Make sure you have Team Fortress 2 and Source SDK Base 2013 Multiplayer installed. Both of free, the second of which can be found in your Tools list on Steam.

What do I do if the SVN is lagging or not working

This may be an indicator that their SVN server is down, as it has been hit with DDosing or otherwise general lag

Where exactly does this install to?

This goes in your steamapps/sourcemods folder. However, this must be on the same drive located where your steam.exe is installed to.

If you're like me and have your Steam on your C:/ drive but your games installed on your D:/ or whatever, you can run this command in an admin privileged CMD window to link the two folders together.

  1. Delete the sourcemods folder you WON'T be using (The one where your steam is installed)
  2. Run this command
    mklink /d "C:\where_is_your_steam_installed\\steamapps\sourcemods" "D:\where_are_your_games_installed\steamapps\sourcemods"
  3. Restart steam and it should be here.

I have installed the game, but it isn't showing up, why?

Make sure you read the above, the game must be on the same drive as your steam.exe. If not, use that command to symlink your installations together. In rare cases, the game may still not appear even when having it installed right.

Note: If your steam installation is considerably old, you can try doing a full resinstall. You simply need to delete every folder except your steamapps folder, and your steam.exe. Run that exe, and your steam will be completely reinstalled.

ln -s /install_location/steamapps/sourcemods/ /other_location/Steam/steamapps/sourcemods

I am getting an insecured error when playing

Add this to your launch options
Launch options: -steam -steam (yes twice)
