Bloodpatch for Team Fortress 2 German
Team Fortress 2 is a great game. I play the beta regularly with some of my friends. The German version of Team Fortress 2 puts players at a serious disadvantage though. There is no blood in the game which means that German players do not know if they hit an enemy or not because the blood has simply been removed without adding some other means proof that the enemy was hit.
To fix this disadvantage German players can install a so called bloodpatch which works fine with the German version of Team Fortress 2. All you need to do is place a few files into one of the Team Fortress 2 directories to enable the patch. Unfortunately though the language of the game has to be changed to German as well if not already done so.
Download and unpack the file tf_german.rar from the first link given below and place all of its contents in your steamapps\account name\team fortress 2\ folder. This enables the blood in the game.
If you leave it that way you got German text, German menus and the blood. If you prefer to read and hear English text and voices you need to download the second file and place it into steamapps\account name\team fortress 2\tf\resource
This changes the voices and most menus back to English.
Update: Please note that the blood patch for the German version of Team Fortress 2 is not working anymore. We have removed the download links from the article as a consequence.Advertisement

oh, fixed ;)
Works great, the only thing I noticed is you can’t break the demoman’s bottle. Works in the english hamburger version, though.
Okay, disregard that last comment. It breaks perfectly. The bottle just takes a freakin long time to break sometimes. Seems the demoman’s favorite brewery has a quite variable quality of bottles.
Can anyone post a working pure_server_whitelist.txt so that a sv_pure 1 server allows this to work correctly?
// Allow german bloodpatch.
Where do I have to put this pure_server_whitelist.txt to get it working properly ?
How to edit pure_server_whitelist.txt from gcf file ?
don’t work to me :|
when i put this tf_german to my team fortress 2 folder this dont working :|
and i even not a german damn…
it doesnt work!
can someone give me a bloodpatch that works?
pls help me
i hate ducks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
even when steam and game is set to English!
Just put the folders like described above in your game folder.
Leave steam and game in English.
Then u just have to do a lil registry edit.
HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareValveSteamApps440 change value “language” from 0 to 1
game works in english text and sound and BLOOD/GORE.
How do you registry edit? Sry if this is irritatin but im no computer whiz. U mind tellin me how 2 do that? (im playin Team fortress in English and have no blood even though i got da game in New Zealand)
Steve you press Windows R, type in Regedit and navigate to the key above
Thx will try it out
I uploaded the working NEW bloodpatch to rapidshare.
ItÂ´s including the new files ( old files are not working anymore, best of all,now bodies have blood decals and no stupid bulletholes ) and the registry value.
Just put the new files in the discribed folder and klick on the .reg file.
If u unsure open the .regfile with ur notepad and check it first.
Approved no virus or malicious code, please people dl and scan to make an approval.
No, the bottle breaks with this patch IÂ´ve uploaded.
Patch is not made by me. So the credits to it goes to some guy that i don`t know.
The blood works now but voices r in German. All txt is in eng thou. Any way to change the voices back to eng?
p.s i have used the registry thing that came with the download
I 4got 2 put this in but the folder is called tf_german rite? So i i changed it to just tf would it work in english?
u have to have on folder called “tf” and one folder “tf_german”. Steam should be set to English and under options of the game, right click the Team Fortress 2 shortcut in your steam client and click properties. There set the language of the game to English.
Close steam redo the registry thingy and start steam again.
Here a screen shot.
Leave a post for further assistance!
Have a nice day
Ah one note:
I apologize for my crappy english.
did what u told me to but all voices are in German even thou the txt and menu’s are in english. I notices that i only had 1 of the 2 MDMP flies in my team fortress folder. i’d leave an image if i knew how to. At least there’s blood now even though i have no idea what the characters are saying. Is there a file 2 download just 4 english voices?
P.S does the registry thing have to be in any specific folder? and every time i use the registry thing the language gets automaticly changed 2 german
Hi I figured out the problem.
Steam/Valve made an update, materials where updated my version is now cut too and the game is in german.
I have to check out how I can re enable it.
besides: leave the MDP file… thast A minidump file for crash issues on my game.. so nothing to worry about it
Look what i found!
but I really have no clue how to write this batch script.
Please any one tell us how to do it
Alright I did this:
I put this -applaunch 440 +exec koh.cfg -heapsize 1048576 in my steam shortcut, now all sv_pure servers are uncut again. Blood patch is working fine
Yep confirmed, Patch is working again. on sv_pure 0 servers.
Hey hal thx 4 your help but the voices r still in german. The blood works fine but the voices r still in german. so i guess i’ll play in german if i want blood n in eng when i dun (frankly the heavy sounds kinda weird in german). (i have been playin on sv_pure 0 servers btw)
Ok sry mate!
Maybe reinstalling it will help.and then doing my steps again?
Sorry im kinda noob putting folders….hal can ya tell me step by step what i have to do plz?
put the folder “tf_german” into your Team fortress 2 folder.
in here–> for example: C:Prgramms-Steam-Steamapps-yourusername-team fortress 2.
Should look then like this: http://img516.imageshack.us/my.php?image=steameg0.jpg
Execute the .reg file and everything should work.
put game and steam to english.
Download this Patch.
Other link was deleted.
Remind: Steam has to be shut down completely before.
check your task manager ( ctrl+alt+del ) for steam.exe and close it.
I think the game is cut in many countries, maybe this uncut patch does not work all over the globe, thing depends on where u live.
Check for the lowviolence.gcf in your steamappsfolder.
I guess the game always changes to german because of the tf_german bloodpach folder.
I tested your new BloodTF2.7z, like Steve, my tf2 has all english menus and texts but german ingame voice.
Would REALLY like to know how to change ingame voice language… Help is much appreciated.
THX for the patch anyway :)
Maybe u guys should just try the blood patch file without doing the .reg thing.
And delete the teamfortress2_german.gcf file!!!
Which countries are u in, maybe some info on that could help me out to give you guys a fix.
If u have the German version, it should work.
Just post in which area you live. IÂ´ll try getting a solution for it.
ItÂ´a pain in the azz to play a game thatÂ´s crippled like that.
Good night, itÂ´s late in Europe, IÂ´ll check for post in a couple of hours again ;)
hal, schreib mal auf Deutsch wie das geht bei mir clappst nich.Danke
Well, all my menus, voices ect. r in english, but my blood is like lime green and not dat gory. Jus a few splats and doesn’t rly leave a mark on walls? Not exactly da most troublin problem but does get irritatin after a while since i want mor gore. A solution would b vry appreciated.
Is it relavant to say dat my TF2 came from da orangebox in da UK, where i live.
i found out dat i hav som sort of da german version cos my blood is lime green and when people explode gibs, like rubber ducks and hamburgers come out. But apart from dat everythin is in english( voice text menus). Is there a way to fix this?
wait scratch dat, it wrks now! Thx a bunch!
just go there http://www.kifferstuebchen.de : I explained it there in german.
I dont want to confuse the ppl here.
Hello TF gamer.
Her i like to share my new bloodpatch with language.reg key.
Now you can get Kritzkried oder do Kritzkrieg without crashing the game!!!!
Hi, i’m using your patch and the voices are still german, and if I force them into english, well… the gore disappears again! I read the whole thread and tried almost everything that people suggested, but it seemed to do nothing. This post is not just random complaint, i was thinking… what about putting the english voices files with the english gore files? Is it possible?
And i almost forgot, i’m Italian (this is because you wanted to know our nationality for a “regional” patch”). I use steam and play TF2 in english though, so i’m not sure if this matters
then try not using the .reg key, just put the files into your italian folder.
( tf_italien or something )
I am trying to make an international bloodpatch.
Please gimme some time.
Put the files into your TF folder. That should might work.
Please respond if not.
First of all let me tell that I deleted the tf_german folder, the german content.gcf and set the language back to normal (italian text and english audio, for italians).
Then i extracted your tf_german in the usual folder but renamed it tf_italian. Now I have blood & gibs, italian text and english audio, just like normal!
I guess it goes this way the, everyone who’s not german must rename the tf_german in his usual tf_yourlanguage folder. Guess putting them in tf folder is not enough since i did it some time ago and it didn’t work.
Well many many thanks for giving me back the battlefield cruelty of this game!
Read somewhere that it ONLY depends on the key wich version you get!?
I ordered the english one of the Episode-pack and the package says: english version, blabla voices (incl. german) and subs in 17 languages.
Am I on the save side to get the uncut with my english version(english key?
Yeah michael, thats correct. ItÂ´s the same with Left4Dead, I ordered it in UK and ItÂ´s uncut now here in germany.
Good to hear, I ordered Left4Dead also in England!
Is it equal in wich language Steam runs?
Normally it doesenÂ´t matter, what language it is.
But I am ot ssure about that. On the other hand, tr it in english, itÂ´s lot more fun, the the crappy tramslation and dubbing.
hal, i’m german, too can i add you on steam or sth. i have bunch of questions, because nothing of these uncut things are working.
would be very much appreciated.
yeah, write me an email, to this mail addy. then I can add u to my list^^.

1. Start the Launcher(TF2 Uncut Launcher.bat) and have fun…
==> If you want to reconfigure Steam and TF2:
1. Start the ‘RECONFIG.bat’ in the Steam -> tf2uncutfiles folder…
==> If it don’t work anymore:
1. Close Steam
2. Delete the ClientRegistry.blob
3. Start Steam again and let it update
4. Now follow the normal instructions above
NO black squares on servers anymore, works on all servers and all languages.
doesn’t work. “the system cannot find file steam.exe”
You have to put the launcher to your steam folder.
hey ty so much! it works.
enjoy! And keep sharing, my link ;)
not working again. “^CTerminate batch job (Y/N)?”
Always start the game with the loader shortcut.
not working… i start it from shortcut and then in “Closing Steam. . .” there comes no message. nothing. “Closing Steam. . .” doesn’t go away automatically which means that it doesn’t launch tf2 uncut.
Maybe the new Steam Update has something to do with it, I’ll look into it an keep you guys posted!!!!
New Uncut Launcher! 4.0 Works with the new Steam UI Update.
Instructions in English and German.
TF Uncut AGAIN!
Download and have fun people!
Telling me it cannot find the clientregistry.blob file upon launch
you have to install the launcher into the steam directory, steam must be closed before you install the launcher.
Then it will patch the clientregistry.blob.
The launcher is working good.
I still get the error that the clientregistry.blob file cannot be found even after closing steam, running the software as admin and selecting the steam folder as the installation folder.
Running Windows 7 64-bit. Any other ideas?
Edit: Fixed it.
I Putt the tf_Germany in /steamapps/yourname/teamfortress 2/
When i start the game and play its still the ducks hamburgers… :(
Can someone please help me? i really hate theese ducks
what is the link!
thanks in advandce
what is the download link, cant find it
thanks in advance
