TF2 C++ Runtime Error keeps causing game to crash

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been playing tf2 just fine lately,albeit something changed recently and the walls are all really bright (white washed) and the models are really dark (like too much contrast on the walls, and weird models).

Anyway, this afternoon when I tried to join up on our server, I kept crashing. I've tried downgrading my video drivers to 8.2, reinstalled the TF2 (deleted cache from steam), and running it with "-fullscreen -width 1920 -height 1200 -refresh 60."

Nothing seems to work . Maybe it will work tomorrow? It was happening a bit yesterday, but this morning it was fine, then it starts again.

I've also closed all non-essential programs including folding at home.

Are you running vista or XP? I don't think it'll really matter, but try doing this and see if everything starts working again.


The issue might be due to corruption of files in the local computer’s user account.

Make a new user account on my machine.
If you are unsure how to create a new user account, simply click the “Start” button then find and click the option “Control Panel.”
You will see an option called “User Accounts;” this is where you can create a new account.
Make sure to give it administrator privileges since you will probably want to start using this new account in place of the older, corrupt account.

If you are having this same issue, I highly recommend giving this a shot before you go so far as to reformat your drive and re-install XP.
Now I just want to know what caused the corruption in the first place.
I think this solution may have also “fixed” a problem with my Photoshop CS2 tools palette, but I haven’t confirmed it for sure yet.



As for the washed out colors and weird models i'm not sure about that. Could be something to do with your texture folder.

yeah I've tried clearing out the game so it's not that.....

I did find that fix regarding creating a new account (I'm on x64 vista) due to some corrupted files.

Unless you live under a rock you have heard about Valve’s Orange Box, the blockbuster title that features all three Half-Life 2 games, Team Fortress 2 and Portal, which is fast becoming a gaming legend in its own right.

Totally sweet, right? Well, not if you you are unable to get Steam, Valve’s online community/activation service, working on your Windows-based computer. Even if you buy buy the game at a physical store, you must install and run Steam to play any of the games included in the Orange Box.

However, I was not able to run Steam on my XP box for quite some time; I always got the damnable MS Visual C++ Runtime error. So what to do?

I tried everything. I made sure not to run any conflicting applications, in fact I made sure not to run anything else at all. But that didn’t work.

I cleaned my registry, I applied a Microsoft XP hotfix, I ran memtest after memtest … nothing seemed to work. Until that is I finally ran across a random post suggesting the issue might be due to corruption of files in the local computer’s user account.

I made a new user account on my machine and wouldn’t you know it? Steam started right up like a charm. If you are unsure how to create a new user account, simply click the “Start” button then find and click the option “Control Panel.” You will see an option called “User Accounts;” this is where you can create a new account. Make sure to give it administrator privileges since you will probably want to start using this new account in place of the older, corrupt account.

and tried the registry fix on the bottom instead, but I guess it was a no go.

looks like the latest hotfix (cats 8.4) fixed it

still have contrast issues, but oh well, I can't even tell anymore, I've gotten so used to it.
