Want to connect to your favorite Ponyville server directly from the TF2 title screen?

Download This File


If you do not play TF2 in widescreen or use a low resolution, Download This Version.


Once the contents are placed into your Team Fortress 2 folder, your title screen should look similar to this:

If you have a reserved slot on the server, this will also allow you to connect automatically without having to enter the console.

NOTE: This may break whenever there is a major TF2 update. If that happens, check back to this thread to see if Raini has posted an updated version.

Installation Instructions
  • Extract the contents of this .rar to your desktop. It should appear as a folder called "tf".
  • Now browse to the path of your TF2 installation. It should look similar to this:
  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\YOUR STEAM LOGIN\team fortress 2
  • Drag the "tf" folder from your desktop to this folder.
  • Windows will ask if you wish to merge these folders. Click "yes".
  • Windows will ask if you wish to overwrite or replace the GameMenu.res and MainMenuOverride.res files. Click yes or "move and replace".

Now you're done! Restart Team Fortress 2 and you should see three buttons for all of the Ponyville.net TF2 servers.

Thanks go to FlutterDash for providing us with this new and improved menu. =)

Not sure about anyone else but the latest update has broken game menu. I fixed it as best as I could.

Replace the old file and it will show the Dallas and San Jose server properly again. As well as the Steam Workshop button.

Added a screenshot of what it looks like now. 1650x1080. Not sure how to space them out further without blocking other buttons.

I updated the GameMenu.res following the latest TF2 update. There are also two different menu files now: one with buttons for San Jose + Jersey, and one for San Jose + Dallas.

Keep in mind that you can only use one GameMenu.res file.

Hey everyone!

FlutterDash recently made an improved version of the game menu that includes horizontal buttons for all three Ponyville servers.

I've uploaded it along with a ReadMe file explaining how to install everything. Download it here.

This new version includes a modified GameMenu.res and MainMenuOverride.res.

Yeah, it works on Macs too (I know because I'm on one right now)

Anyway, this new feature is neat! It really gets rid of my "Promotional Codes" button.
Congratulations, you won

did this break for anyone else on the most recent update? The buttons got moved and san jose are dallas are clickable, but new jersey is hidden behind the replay button...i think.

Whenever there is a major TF2 update it could overwrite these files. Just download and install them again.

Say, any plans on adding a button for the EU server? It's always empty after all and perhaps a lack of a button is the reason for that.

The menu has been updated to include the Euro server and also work with the Christmas update.

Thanks to FlutterDash for dramatically improving the layout of the menu for us and keeping it updated! :heart:
