    Hello !

    I have this problem where if I open Team Fortress 2 and I get to the loading screen of 2Fort or some map the whole Steam freezes and I can't close it in any way so I have to restart my computer.

    I tried to get a answer on Steam Forum, but got no answer.

    I have heard that people had this problem before, every year few cases of this happens.

    I am not 100% sure what caused it. it started (maybe) when I was making a TF2 map for SFM, I had to move the map from my TF2 maps file to my SFM maps file since it automatically was created there. After that I noticed that my TF2 maps had the SFM map icon so I tried to run them with HL.exe.

    From what I have heard, for somepeople typing "-autoconfig" in launch options has helped them, but did not work for me. Also I heard that re-installing TF2 doesn't help.

    Any ideas what to do ?

    I had this issue a couple days ago. Reinstalling the game actually worked for me.

    also right click on TF2 in steam, click properties, and look for the "verify game cache" button. It's there somewhere, but I can't quite remember. It's much faster than re-installing.

    If neither of any of the previously aforementioned things work, then you may have to delete the TF folder entirely and backup any custom content... not necessarily in that order. But that's only if.
