Team Fortress 2 Crashes while Loading

Q: Team Fortress 2 Crashes while Loading

I just built a new computer and am now having trouble running TF2. I've installed and updated all my drivers. When i select a server and try to load into the server, everything loads smoothly and quickly until i get to the "Sending Client Info" phase of the loading. I get to having only 1 bar left to load then the game sticks there for a while then errors out of hl2.exe.. Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Team Fortress 2 Crashes while Loading

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Just installed the orange box and whenever I try to join a game it crashes and I am not sure why, usually it is right after the game finishes the bar loading onto the server, one time I got as far as the chalkboard intel stuff but thats it.
I meet all the minimum requirements for the game 512 mb of ram, 1.72 ghz, graphics chip
I am not sure what the problem is, I am fairly certain my drivers are updated. =[

Sorry if the tf2 question has been covered before but I did a search here :"team fortress 2" (no quotes) in 'games' and got this:

Great start lol, because I've been tearing my hair out on Steam and with tf2 for a week or so and I'm past the anger stage now and slipping into giggling insanity.

TF2 is a great game and I like it but in a firefight online it runs slowly on my machine -- runs in software mode, I suspect. Our neighbours have an olde machine that runs tf2 very well, albeit on low settings.

I've trawled the net and seen other threads on other forums about the same tf2 problem -- all unresolved. 1st question is usually is your video card running too hot? Yeh the card makes great chips Then there's the uninstall / reinstall list, (it's quite a list, how long have you got? ) -- thankfully all tried before I got there And yep, there's, 'what your broadband connection?' Well that isn't the problem here.

Bottom line, no solutions.

Seems to point to Valve not being able to understand how to write drivers for some Nvidia cards, because I think they surely must have tried?? Anyway Valve ain't tellin,' just buy, buy, buy and take your chances, Their trouble... Read more

Hi,

I have a Q6600 CPU clocked @ 2.4 ghz
GTX 260 graphics card, ( i overclocked it, but other games work fine
2gb ram

Until 3 months ago TF2 worked just fine almost maxing the 60 fps limit.
Suddenly in SLIGHTLY intense moments im lucky if i get 5 - 10 fps!!
please help

As a '' benchmark '' i Play resident evil 5 and my FPS are 55 - 60.
 

A:Low FPS in Team Fortress 2

That running the game at my monitors maximum resolution yields the highest framerate. I know people will probably jump all over me for this, on the other hand I will tried tf2 at various 16x10 resolutions and unless I am running it at 1920x1200 my framerate drops to 40-50fps as opposed to a solid 60 or above.At idle cores run at 49c and 47c, under gameplay they dont go above 55c.

Okay, so my PC goes way above the recommended requirements. So I should be able to run the game on high with a good 60 fps, right? But I only get maybe 50 on average, with medium/low settings. So I really don't understand why I am not getting better performance. My PC specs are:
-Processor: AMD Athlon II X4 650, 3.20 GHz
-Graphics: AMD Radeon R7 250 2GB DDR3
-RAM: 8 GB DDR3 (7.75 GB usable)
So the question I'm trying to I'm trying to ask is, shouldn't my FPS be a lot better? Like, I am on low settings for cryin out loud and I am getting those god awful frames (yes I know 50 is good, but I should be getting better, especially on low settings).

Hello there.

For some reason, I seem to be having some FPS issues with Team Fortress 2. When I'm not fighting I'm around the 100fps mark, and when I am it plummets to around 30fps. Here are my specs.

intel core i7-4702MQ 2.2GHZ with Turbo Boost up to 3.2GHZ

I'm playing the game on high settings and I am having this issue even on low settings. But something I'm curious about is that it plays perfectly In my student house with "good internet" but plays bad in another house with "bad internet". I'm pretty sure internet speed cannot affect your FPS but if It can could you please explain how? I'm looking for any possible help at all.Thank you.

These were caused by a memory corruption. Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.
1-Memtest.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

RAM - Test with Memtest86+

2-Driver verifier

Hey all,

I currently have problems running Team Fortress 2 on Steam. Basically, what happens is that as soon as it runs, the home screen of the game appears and quickly closes, within about 1.5 seconds.
I briefly see the background image. It wasn't minimized and doing this several times, it still won't work. All my other games on Steam are working perfectly fine.

Although I haven't played it for over a month, it could be the recent update that triggered this issue..?
I have already tried reinstalling it, but the problem persists.

Please help,

So, I've been trying to figure out why TFC won't run properly for me. When I play, my FPS is sitting around 7-15 on average. I've been lucky enough to get the occasional 60-100, but that only lasted for a minute after adjusting cl rates and such. Then, it went right back to crap.

Here are my system specs, I'm coming right off a reformat, drivers are installed.

Model: Dell Inspirion B130
BIOS: A10 (Up to date)
Processor: Pentium M 1.7GHz FSB: 399MHz
RAM: Single Channel DDR2 512 MB
Chipset: i915GM/GMS i910GML Express Family Chipset
Video Card: Onboard, 96 MB
Sigmatel Audio (Not sure on specs)

Any other information I need to gather would be fine, just let me know what else to sniff out.

Also, don't tell me that my computer is the problem.. I've played TFC perfectly fine before with high 90s FPS and no sluggish problems.

And another thing... No background apps are running, if you want I'll post a picture of my task manager. My internet latency isn't the issue, it's the FPS. If anyone could help I'd be VERY happy... This whole thing has driven me right up the wall. TIA!

EDIT: I remember doing a steam performance scan yesterday before I reformatted and I passed fine.. But this is what I got when I scanned just a minute after posting this thread:

This is the first time I've encountered this issue, and I haven't recently changed/added/removed any hardware except for adding RAM a little more than a month ago. It started while I was in Team Fortress 2, and gave me the "DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_ OR_EQUAL" error on the BSOD. When restarting, I got a screen that listed a bunch of my system info and at the bottom said checksum bad error (something like that).

so i've been playing TF2 for a while now on max resolution with max graphics and have little trouble running it, sure it gets a little laggy when there are 10 chars on screen all firing explosives but other then that its great.
but recently its just gone to hell, getting real bad lag when i'm jsut standing around.

i have no clue how to fix this, is the problem in the graphic card? the processor? maybe my internet conection? there are no adition programs running (other then MSN but thats always on). my buddy said i should restart the computer, something about the cache backing up and not getting cleaned out because i hadn't turned it off in a few days, i did that and it helped a little for a bit.

i have an alienware aurora M9700 laptop
speccs are
single core, 64 bit AMD turion 2.2 GHZ
2 gigs of ram
dual SLI enabled GeForce 7900 graphics cards
running windows XP
(for anyone that may not know this is more then enough to run TF2)

even WoW has been getting reaally laggy from time to time, and that runs flawlessly

any suggestions would be a big help,
my roomate sure isn't, just keeps telling me to run a benchmark

I've been having problems with TF2's frame rate since I bought it about a month ago. When there's more than about 16 people playing, the frame rate drops to about 9FPS. Even playing with only a few people or even alone it can drop randomly to 13~20FPS. In very small rooms it's at a decent 30~50FPS. I meet all of the required system requirements and all but one of the recommended requirements. I have a Presario with an AMD Athlon XP 3000 processor at 3GHz, a gig of RAM, an NVidia 6200 video card, running Windows XP, using a 1024x768 resolution, and a 500GB brand new hard drive. I tried lowering the resolution, that didn't help. I set all the details to as low as they could go, still doesn't fix anything. Any suggestions?
 

A:Team Fortress 2 frame rate drop

TF2 doesn't run smoothly on anything but 1000$+ computers at any graphical settings. I may just get 80 FPS without VSync when doing nothing with lowest settings, 65 on highest. In action it's 20-40 at any settings.
There's really nothing to do with a low-end computer and a horribly programmed game.

Hello,

My problem: Im getting BSOD's while I'm playing Team Fortress 2 (Fullscreen Window Mode). The mode is unimportant, since I tested Fullscreen only and the result is the same.

The BSOD usually appers after ~ 1hour. I have tested without TF2, and there's no BSOD, even after 2 hours. In this time, I'm browsing in Firefox, use applications like steam and Trillian, watching Flash-Videos on Youtube. But I don't play TF2 (Team Fortress 2).

My latest installed Hardware was a mouse (Steelseries, USB - Motherboard), and the Steelseries Engine as the driver. I already deactivated the driver in the auto start (with CCleaner). It doesent matter, if the driver is running in taskbar or not - If I'm playing TF2, after some time, I get the BSOD.

I don't know what to do now, since I had no problems before.

I also installed some Games like Half-Life and a Mouse Recorder Software. All works properly. But only TF2 causes the BSOD.

I also checked the integrity of the TF2 files - Successfully.
I hope that it's not a Hardware caused problem.

Thanks for any help!

I NOW just had a BSOD, but the difference is: I was NOT playing TF2 while the BSOD appears. And TF2 was not opened, only Steam was.

I've had some level of instability now for a while while playing TF2... My System locks up periodically while playing...

The PSU I was using (OCZ ModX 700W) died a few days ago - smelled the smoke and the system wouldn't post after that. I replaced the PSU with an Antec 650W Trio from another computer in the house and everything "appeared" happy.

My system locked up again today, however, this time it actually popped a BSOD - bugcheck was: 0x0000001e (0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000).

I'm unsure what to look at for this (I haven't tried firing up the game a second time for fear that something more serious may be wrong.

Based on another thread I read, I ran "SFC /scannow" which didn't find any integrity violations.

I'll upload the mini-dump, however, this may not be a complete file as I believe I interrupted the saving of this dump.

This system's primarily used by my wife for non gaming... it's not over clocked, her use doesn't hardly tax it, and the one game I generally play doesn't hardly push it either (I see ~ 200 fps on that game with this rig)

Welcome to SevenForums.

Your single dump file blames the Razer Diamondback USB Optical Mouse driver (habu.sys) which dates back to 2009. You should update it.
Razer Support

ASACPI.sys, Asus ATK0110 ACPI Utility - The 2005 version is a huge cause of BSODs.

Please visit this link: http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...eluxe&p=1&s=32
Scroll down to the Utilities category, then locate the "ATK0110 driver for WindowsXP/Vista/Windows 7 32&64-bit "
Download and install it, you may have to use device manager to install it.
Go to C:\Windows\System32\drivers to check and make sure that the ASACPI.sys file is date stamped from 2009 or 2010 (NOT 2005).

Hey guys,
I love Team Fortress 2 and have done for a while now (been playing since the Pyro was updated), though this past couple of weeks I've been seeing some problems. I'm just playing a match, when suddenly everything freezes and the game begins stuttering. It's like I'm stuck in lag or something, but then, this happens...



The whole screen becomes garbled and certain game files seem to replace other game files... After two minutes or so, this usually stops and the game goes back to normal. It's really annoying and just seems to happen randomly!

I un-installed my game and installed it back again yesterday but it didn't help. Defragmented my cache files, but that didn't help either.

An error of 0x124 is a general hardware error .





Quote:
A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint.

Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress


Some generic advice.

If you are overclocking STOP.
Return to the default settings at least for now.
