Firing weapons crashes the program
Every time I enter game mode and try to fire ANY weapon, SFM completely locks up, then crashes. I've tried the obvious solutions (verifying my cache, launching SFM through SDK, etc.), but they didn't work. I want to know (a) what is causing this, and (b) how to fix it.

I just checked. With melee weapons, it still crashes, but ONLY when I attempt to hit something that's part of the map (in my test, a wall). Swinging my weapon at the air doesn't cause any major problems.

I've noticed since today's update that going in game in SFM and shooting around causes, for me, a missing particle effect which is a big explosion of red x's. Something appears to have been screwed in the update.

Actually, the red X thing happened to me before the update.

Have you tried restarting Steam since the update? I hear that sometimes works.

That might work. I'll try it.

I just restarted Steam, loaded the tf-movies "box" map, and attempted to fire Scout's scattergun. The program locked up for several minutes, THEN crashed--this time with an error message.

So, in other words, restarting Steam didn't help much, if at all.

MLTDG, Try this, this fixed my problem.

Go to your usermod folder, backup your particles folder and delete it.

If you dont have a particles folder, you might be dealing with something else.

I'll give that a try.

Update: I deleted my usermod\particles folder, like you suggested, and it worked!
