    Not sure if this is the right place to ask, however, here we go. My friend believe that most of the performance problems after Touch Break update comes from tf/tf2_misc_dir.vpk/scripts/items/paintkits_master.txt
    Removing this file returns the same old performance like it was it before Touch Break patch... But TF2 crashing as soon as I try to load it. This might be related to the digital signature file (the .sig extension) Adding any changes to the paintkits_master.txt is simple impossible, because .sig file would disappear and I'll be unable to start the game without putting original files back.
    So my question is: is there any workaround to complete nullify paintkits_master.txt effect or prevents from loading?

    Go to Steam, go to library, right click on Team Fortress 2, click properties, click "Local files" and click "Check the consistency of the game files" (Long bottom button) and wait, when everything is fixed. (I think I said it correctly, I use steam in Polish language)

    If that will not work, wait for next TF2 update. Delfy found some exploits, so Valve will fix them and update will come soon.

    Well, the most logical answer would be no. If it's in a vpk that ships with the game it's important game stuff, so removing or editing it would be a no-no.

    What's the point? -default won't prevent from loading shitty unoptimized textures. There is no other fix than direct file modification.

    Supposedly -default fixes a lot of the fps issues w the latest updates.
