Please help, SFM crashes when I fire any weapons. (RESOLVED)
So recently, when I hit F11, and I shoot my gun (as any character in any map), SFM freezes for a few seconds, then crashes to desktop. I have no idea what would cause this problem, other then I have too many models added to it (I have over 17000 models).
Also, after playing around on it for a minute or so, the FPS drops to about 5, but I was able to play at about 30 or 40 FPS a couple weeks ago with the same amount of models. I'm not sure if these problems are connected, but if anyone has any ideas, or needs any more information to give, please let me know, and I'll try to see what I can do. Thank you.

I think they did something to the game mode. I know whenever i fire a gun I get a big bloom of red Xes. and the game lags a bit when it happens. I can imagine on weaker system it actually crashing. I don't know what they did or how to fix it. and yeah, I used to be about to fire normally.

Same issue here, I've even verified SFM like ten times.

Here is an answer of mine. If you got a map or a model that has particles included, Be careful. I downloaded a map and when I fired a weapon it crashes. After I deleted its particles it works fine afterwards and the weapons work perfectly. I suggest taking off some particles that are custom because they can be glitched was weapon particles. So thats my answer of how i fixed it. Be careful though, It might ruin your models so look out for what you delete.

I've seen this happen on default maps though.

Bloxxie's right.

I made a backup of my Usermod Particles, then deleted the Usermod Particles.

Works fine now.

Ah, that did the trick. I just backed up all my particle files, and now I'm able to shoot my gun at will! Thanks Bloxxie :D
