Glad to know I'm not the only one with this problem.

I've figured out the fix! Open GCFScape, open tf2_materials.dir, and extract the particles file from there into your tf folder in SFM.

Are you serious? I'd been looking for a fix for this for quite a while, and it would turn out it's caused by missing materials? Can you confirm this Scoutaloo? My new computer does not have this problem.

That was my bad. The actual file name is tf2_materials_dir, for one. Anyway, are you familiar with installing custom models and skins into TF2/SFM?

Alright, i'm having this problem too. Whenever i import particles or a hwm model this error[puu.sh] pops up. Drives me insane.. The emotions tab for the hwm models are often missing and the dropdown for the particles is gone.

Yes i am familiar with installing models c:
Same here, no facial presets, no particles. And no tf2_materials_dir. I do have tf2_misc_dir, and tf2_textures_dir, but neither fixed the problem.
Yes, yes. Forgive me. I was talking about the tf2_misc_dir. I was having a confusing day. Anyway, open tf2_misc_dir, find the "particles" folder in there, and extract it to the "tf" folder in SFM. If extracting the particles folder for you, SamSpielberg didn't work, then I wonder if your problem may be a little bigger than mine.

Ive been asking where or what is tf_whatever_dir... I really dont get this ;-;
Programs(X86)/Steam/Steamapps/common/tf2/tf/tf2_misc_dir.vpk. I did read about a solution to this problem, though. Instead of opening SFM direct, open it through the sdk. In the library, click 'launch SFM'. Two options will appear: 'launch SFM' or 'launch SDK'. Click SDK. Then open SFM. All the particles and facial presets will be there.
