Rules and info.

Official group on Steam Better to join the Steam group instead of giving out Steam addresses when you join the group. The join system is set to auto for the group, so we can't see them.

Help us upgrade to a super group. Cake and beer promised but not guaranteed….

Tired of Chris trolling this section with Brony crap? Then make suggestions here anyways…

Eh why not since the Saxxy awards have just been announced so I looked around the internet mainly Youtube and found two video's using SFM and one Gmod video just well why not. Anyway the first video is actually a recreation from another live video called "(please) Save teh whales by NOT SMOKING cigarettes anymore or i'll call 9-1-1 on you" but the SFM video done by wnses286 using the same name and changed the ending of the original. But why am I putting this up because the voice sounds familiar so I looked and the voice is done by Nathan Vetterlein so why does that name sound familiar? because he is the voice actor for Scout in Team Fortress 2 and it sounds kind of weird without the Boston accent.

The Second SFM video I found this week was actually in two parts right now in the first episode by LoneWolfHBS the creator of "Cult of Personality" using SFM. Anyway this new video is based in L4D/L4D2 characters with custom skins and trying to survive the outbreak but their is a twist our lovely character L4D Zoey was changed to be a mute character not deaf just a mute trying to survive the outbreak. LoneWolfHBS has a very long decription on the parts so I would go there for the full story since I'm trying to sum it up.

Lastly out lovely crazy Gmod animator DasBoSchitt the creator of "The Gmod idiot box" has just released a new short called "GIBlets: The Vicious Cycle of Playing Medic" and the title speaks for itself so I would just check it out it's funny.

:bulletred:How to upload:bulletred:

When can I upload a submission to compete in the Third Annual Saxxy Awards?
You can upload submissions between 4:00 PM on Wednesday, September 17 and 4:00 PM on Wednesday, September 24, Pacific Standard Time. (between 00:01 Sep. 18 and 23:59 Sep. 24, GMT)

How do I upload a submission?
Submissions are all uploaded from the Source Filmmaker. From the File menu in the SFM, select "Community", then "Submit Video to Saxxy Awards". You'll be prompted first for your YouTube login and password (don't worry, this info isn't stored) and then for some details about your submission (title, description, etc.).

Why won't my YouTube account respond?
Remember to set up your YouTube account so that you've answered their gender and age questions. You will also need to make sure that you've created a YouTube channel. You may use Google's 2-step authentication to create an app-specific password for login, or you may disable it temporarily.

When can I view submissions?
All submissions will be viewable when voting starts on Wednesday, September 24th.

Other people helped me with my submission. How do I add them as co-authors?
Once you've uploaded a submission through SFM, it should appear in the videos section of your Steam Community page. From here, simply click on the video; once it pops up, click on "View Comments and Details" to view Owner Controls and add contributors.

(There is an image on the rules page which I'll link up in the links)

Clicking "Add/remove Contributors" will pop up a dialog showing you your friends list. Click on friends to select them as co-authors of your submission.

Your friends should then receive an email letting them accept or decline whether they are a contributor to the submission. Remember to get your co-authors to accept before the deadline!

Wow feels like we done this already but time flies fast and the fourth annual Saxxy awards just got announced today so that means more SFM videos will be around the corner. Plus Valve just update that in the Saxxy this time we can use Portal SFM community can join the fight anyway here are the rules and stuff which is similar to 2013...oh speaking of SFM update file packs were added to SFM and it was Portal and Blade Symphony which if you haven't played the game yet why haven't you done it already?

Back in February 2014 Steam released the Steam Music Beta for Big Picture mode only and it's invite only as well but as of recently Steam released an update to Steam Music that all you need to do is is go to your Steam client and switch it to the Steam client beta mode. Plus since with this update desktop beta feature for Steam music is now enabled for all platforms should be opened but update your OS if you need to just in case.


A new redesign not conformed by Valve yet for the Steam Controller just came out and everything from design 2.0 is their but there were going to be eight front buttons (Not including pause, select, home buttons) but now on the left side four buttons were removed and replaced with a analog stick...Really Valve you made the super touchy trackpads so we don't need analog sticks and now your putting one in anyway? Ugh I don't know the design looks better but what do you think?

Thanks for adding me to the group. I hope i submitted to the right folder(the Portal Gauntlet in Cosplay and Crafts), because it is a physical item. Though it does look like something rendered.
DevinShadowV Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
No problem actually I like seeing actual items and not CG or drawings sometimes.
KayleetheDragacron Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey guys! Get ready for a buttload of artwork from me! Are you ready?
DevinShadowV Featured By Owner May 1, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist

KayleetheDragacron Featured By Owner May 2, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Radical! If I remember, it might be all uploaded sometime today.
OolonColluphid Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2014
Only going to stick around until I'm not needed. Mod reviews will be back as soon as I can. Although you don't need to really wait for me or Devin to post reviews. People can post their own to the journal unless dA changed things a while back.
Also the way he and I do it are just guidelines to simplify the process.
Xroswarsolider Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014
Huge thank you for adding 'Good Luck Orange Team' to your gallery. I must say it's absolutely fantastic to see a group deeply interested in the valve games. It may shock Gabe Newell to find that I'm more into their single player games. :P How I will miss them...
DevinShadowV Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
