    Recently I have decided to try and use HDR in my map, but when compiling, I noticed that nothing changed in terms of lighting. When I dug in further, I tried putting mat_hdr_enabled into my console, it simply says "HDR is disabled" underneath. I also tried mat_hdr_level 2, but it says I can't change this value in multiplayer games. Is HDR just not supported in tf2 or something?

    It's supported, but it also depends on if your computer is able to use it. On the main menu you should be able to do the following (while not in a multiplayer game)
    sv_cheats 1
    mat_specular 1
    mat_hdr_level 2
    Then try loading a level.

    If that doesn't work, there's an option to turn HDR on to 'Full' in the Video > Advanced part of the Options menu.
