...You're probably thinking, "another downloading tool? this is what, the 4th one?!"

Well it's not without reason. This tool is a stopgap, if you will, between the remnants of our previous two solutions and our next one.

We wanted something that'd help all our current users to update, so with some assistance from our friends over at TF2c, we've been able to put together a temporary solution that should help you update smoothly, regardless of what revision you're currently on. This will also smooth the transition to our new solution which hasn't been completed yet.

Now the reason why that next solution isn't done is due to our commitment to making sure it works perfectly, and due to the scope of the project.

This won't just be for Open Fortress. This'll be for several sourcemods, fixing the downloading solution once and for all. It might be a moonshot but we're aiming for the stars here. Stay tuned for that, but in the mean time, enjoy the new update!

Q: What happened to OFToast II?

A: Unfortunately, OFToast II has been cancelled due to several reasons, mainly stability, efficiency, and the existence of better solutions. Its true replacement however is better, and will be coming soon, hopefully.

Q: What's this new one then?

A: If you're familiar with TF2C's installer then this may look familiar - it's based off of that.

Q: Where's the source code?

A: Here!

Q: Why is it called beans?

A: I'll leave that for you to figure out.

Happy fragging,
