    My game was freaking out during yesterday's US imp, so I thought I'd share some of my screenshots.

    Here's what my viewmodels looked like. Believe it or not, but I decided to just turn them off.

    Wonky shading.

    This one actually looks pretty cool.

    Occasionally my crosshair decided that it wanted to be a Degreaser.

    My favorite taunt.

    Carnage on the battlefield.

    You can only imagine how hard it was to play Sniper when enemies look like like this:

    Or this:

    Or sometimes this:

    Thankfully the issue was fixed as soon as I went to a Valve server. I think it might have something to do with the recent update adding newer versions of VTFs, and the TF2Maps server was running an older version of the game that didn't have this update, but my game did.

    You should not be able to join a game server running an older version than your client.
    But yes, somehow it seems logical since they updated the materials in the last update.

    Edit:
    According to the diff on the TF2 wiki none of the player model related materials were changed.

    That looks more like the random gibberish you get from having hammer open while updating.
