Cleanup.cfg

Ok so I know that not everyone knows what this is or why it's useful so I will post one:

A cleanup.cfg is essentially a config that is there to unbind keys that you use to do something different for two or more classes. This is important because sometime you can actually confuse the game by not unbinding your keys. This in turn can result in you not being able to execute the desired action in game and can be detrimental to your success as a player.

An example of a set of scripts that would fall into this category is:

Code:
//in scout.cfg
bind mouse4 "+duck"
Code:
//in demoman.cfg
bind mouse4 "+attack2"
* In the example we are using the same key (mouse4) to duck for a scout and to use the secondary attack for a demo.

So what exactly does a cleanup.cfg do?

A cleanup.cfg is simply a NEW .cfg file created by you to "cleanup" your configs and binds.

Mine looks like this:

Code:
echo Clean Up Config Loaded

unbind mwheelup
unbind mwheeldown
unbind alt
unbind mouse2
unbind mouse3
unbind mouse4
unbind mouse5
unbind f
unbind g
unbind shift
unbind ctrl
You will notice that I have a lot of keys in there. This is because each of those keys is being used to preform separate commands depending on the class I am playing. Yours may not be as large or it may be larger, that depends on the scripts you are using.

Creating a cleanup.cfg.

To create a cleanup.cfg you will need to have notepad (notepad NOT wordpad).
  1. Open a blank notepad document.
  2. Place this line at the top:

    Code:
    echo Clean Up Config Loaded
    (this will let you know in console that your .cfg has been successful in loading)
  3. Next you will need to place any and all keys that you wish to unbind here.

    For instance if you use c, d, 3, and mouse2 as different things for two or more scripts then you will want to place these here. YOU WILL NEED A SEPARATE LINE FOR EACH KEY!

    Using the example above your hypothetical cleanup.cfg would look like this:
    Code:
    echo Clean Up Config Loaded
    unbind c
    unbind d
    unbind 3
    unbind mouse2
  4. Once you have put all the keys into your cleanup.cfg you need to save this AS A CONFIG FILE.
  5. To do this, go to file, saveas and navigate to your cfg folder (steam/steamapps/fortressforever/cfg). When saving the document it is important that you save it as cleanup.cfg (include the .cfg in the filename or it will not save properly!)
  6. The last step is to execute your cleanup.cfg. To do this place the following line into each <classname>.cfg (demoman.cfg, engineer.cfg, hwguy.cfg, medic.cfg, pyro.cfg, scout.cfg, sniper.cfg, soldier.cfg, spy.cfg)

    Code:
    exec cleanup.cfg
    * This line needs to be at the TOP of each <classname>.cfg before any scripts you have, but below the line: echo <classname> CFG LOADED

    Your done! To test your cleanup.cfg join a game (or create a server) and choose a class. Then check your console (~) and look for a line that says:

    Clean Up Config Loaded

    You should see this at or near the bottom of your console. If you cannot find this line then you will need to go back through the steps above.

Then you would have to bind every key again on every class.cfg, or have a basic setup.cfg file with the usual binds (W forward, etc.). This way you only unbind the keys that change between classes.

Can't you just copy and paste the .cfg from one class to another and adjust accordingly instead of having a .cfg specifically for this?

It seems like an un-needed step. Having to exec a .cfg before switching to another class, or, having that exec at the start of your .cfg seems unneeded. Simply copying and pasting the same base .cfg and adjusting accordingly inside the .cfg is much simpler.

I have cleanups built into my configs. I use the same standard keys for special stuff (Alt, F4-F12, O, P... it goes on) and just unbind the lot of 'em.

I've never used a config, evar.

I guess it's not as efficient, but I don't want things to be easy either.. though I'm not really sure that's the reason why I don't use one.

Only things that I ever bind/unbind are the right click menu, det dispenser, and feign.

sooo BEANCURDS BITCHES.

It depends on how in depth your .cfgs are...if your just using some teamspeak and flag toss scritps and a few engy one's then generally yes.

Me I use a shit ton of scripts:

My spy script, for example, is huge:

bind ctrl "sabmenu"
And that's JUST for red / blue maps, on maps with more players I use Groovy's teamspy.cfg which is bound to be executed when I hit a specific key.

Now do you really want to copy that somewhere else just so that you don't have to create a new cleanup.cfg? IMO it's much simpler to just unbind the few keys in that cfg that I know are being used in other cfg's by using my cleanup.cfg and leave it at that.

Then it's just one additional line of:

Code:
exec cleanup.cfg
Placed in my .cfg's

Nope...the closest thing you can get is to place this line in your userconfig.cfg:
Code:
exec config_default
but even that is just oging to revert you to the factory default settings and isn't really going to help you. This is focused mainly on leaving the binds you use across the board in place while still unbinding the keys that are commonly used by different classes for different things.

Ahar.

That's some purty scripting you got there. So, the lady lets you know which weapon you've got out?

yep...it rebinds your weapon keys to still switch to the proper weapon, but it speaks the "Disguised as weapon" to you. Then once you attack...it rebinds your keys back to the normal keys and removes the vox because attacking will remove your disguise.
