TF2 Stutter crash

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

Crash Fortress 2 is unplayable

I cannot fix this issue. The game crashes everytime I try to play. I'll play for a while, and some guy will kill me, but before he does, the game stutters, freezes, then just crashes to desktop with no warning whatsoever. This never happend before. Just started happening since the Love and War update. I've googled it, and found that making it borderless would help. It didn't. I tried non-borderless. It crashed even more, and this time, crashed right as I got an achievement. I've even re-installed Steam and TF2 and it STILL doesn't work. I am baffled and this bug makes it unplayable. Please help. Even worse, sometimes when I crash and go to my inventory, a hat has unequipped itself, making me have to re-equip it.

    Reinstalling doesn't do shit, if you're having any problems with verifying, the best thing you could do is delete all the VPK files and start the game. Crashes like these seem like material issues, so you'll probably only need to delete the misc VPK files.

I re-installed Steam and TF2 completely and it took a day to install. Are you saying I have to do something MORE? I even went into Regedit and deleted Valve from the Software folders, c'mon.

    Removed my custom folder and trashed it because if it caused crashing, I wouldn't want it. Worked perfectly. I was able to play 55 minutes without crashing! Although there WAS some stuttering that really bugged me, I think it's gone away now.
