Mann VS Machine is live, people like me is waiting to get into a server. Every time I wait, I will get even more impatient. So I decided to create a server of my own and play solo using the "+" in TF2 beside the browse servers option. Every time I join or create a private server, I will NOT be able to choose a class. That means I will be stuck at a grey screen with only the words "Welcome" and people playing at the background. I will not be able to move, change classes or view in spectate. Please tell me why. Thanks.
What I did was put the following into console and I was able to host a server with friends:
map mvm_mannworks (decoy or coaltown works too!)
map mvm_mannworks (or to decoy or coaltown. have to change maps for this to kick in. Didn't check if you could do it before launching map.)
