The Halloween Zeds have returned home as they have had their fun for this year.

This is a required update for clients and servers. Your favorite servers will need to update before you will be able to connect to them.

NoReconnect Error:

Please look in your KillingFloor/system folder for a Steam_AppID.txt file and delete it. This should fix your issue. At that point DO NOT launch the Toy Master mod via the Steam Library. As of now we have disabled this ability and it will give you an error. You can still play the mod by launching Killing Floor and going to Game Modes when it is downloaded.

We are looking into why this file is being generated and why it is causing this problem. We do not have the ability to remove the file from players systems so please help spread the word if you know players who have this issue.


Slow Server Browser:
It is overloaded from the amount of players/servers from the free weekend. As a work around for that we suggest using the Steam server browser for now.

Right click on Steam in your System tray and select the "Servers" option.


For server admins who have had trouble updating their servers to Killing Floor 1062:

Once we reproduced this locally, we managed to fix this issue by navigating to the folder where the SteamCMD executable is and deleting the "Appcache" folder that is part of the SteamCMD folder structure and running the update again.

So any admins who are experiencing this issue should attempt this fix.

Nope.

I do enjoy how Killing Floor’s monsters look like people in Halloween costumes, the sort of thing one could make with a few hours and some household supplies. Given me a black bodysuit, some tights, cotton wool, pipe cleaners, socks, and wire coat hangers, and I’ll make you a Crawler that’ll win you pity in your office costume contest. Unsurprisingly, Killing Floor gets into Halloween in a big way.

The co-op survival FPS’s annual spooky event launched yesterday, and KF is also part of Steam’s ten-game Free Weekend Weekend, so all and sundry can come fight the horrible, horrible dolls that are murderous and horrible.

This is a hotfix to address the following issues with the Halloween update. It addresses the following issues:

  • Fleshpounds will now spawn in wave games
  • Toy Master will now launch Killing Floor properly from the Steam Library if you launch the Toy Master application instead of Killing Floor
  • Link to new DLC bundles now points to them properly (many 75% off!)

This is a required update for clients and servers. Servers will need to be updated before you will see them back in the server browser.


The Toy Master server files can now also properly be downloaded via the SteamCMD tool.
