    As the title says, I've only been experiencing this since a week ago. Is there any way to fix this?

    Some specs:
    GeForce GTX 760
    Intel Core i5-4670k CPU @ 3.40GHz
    8 GB of RAM
    Running on Windows 10

    I've had the same issue. I cheaked amny forums, update drivers and such, and sadly the only thing that fixed it for me is turning off color correction and turning details/video quality down. I think it's related to how much ram tf2's source can use, which isn't much. Source is 20 years old after all :p

    Hah, good to see people on Windows getting these out-of-memory related crashes as well.

    That's not to sound mean or anything, but this has been the case on OS X for well over 1.5 years now, with the only way to make it playable being to lower texture detail to medium (and it then still uses well over 1.7GB where it used to use 850MB). Maybe this is the time where Valve finally gets going at fixing it once and for all for all platforms.

    Your best bet is to email Valve about it. Give them as many details as you can. Crash reports, driver versions, everything. I'm working with this guy called sigsegv (who's a master at Source coding and has pointed out/fixed multiple bugs for Valve with the last couple of updates (including MyM) but he's busy at this time, so that has to wait for a little while.
