Yay, TF2 crashes!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Do you know what today is? It's another week! So another update for TF2 and well all it does it causes crashes.(along with some menu tweaks)


When recording with Fraps, I can not enter servers, as when I do, after I select my class, it locks up and freezes. Task Manger end process is the only thing to do.

When not recording, it just crashes in some random part of the game. Just walking along and boom. Audio starts rapidly repeating the last thing and it crashes.


Also, none of my load outs are available as I am "not connected to Steam", even though I clearly am. I can only use my last made loadouts. So my Demoman is stuck with a Samurai Sword .


Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yep. It's happening to a lot of people. The update content is good, but it's causing crashes and breaking everything.

Also, don't use fraps to record TF2 videos. Record a demo, and use the startmovie command. I would recommend the PLDX tool, but the update broke it too, and PLDX is dead.

Edit: Should be fixed now.

Yes, it is annoying and it is usually preety pointless.

Also, I don't like using demos. Too lazy to go back and record the entire thing. Just hit F7 & record. No frame rate issues so why not?
