Show player list not working in steam overlay with TF2?
Just curious if anyone else has this problem.

While playing TF2 (can't remember if this happens with other games either), but when I shift + tab to activate the Steam Overlay and hit "View players" to see players currently playing with me on the server, it never works. It shows maybe 1 or 2 people, USUALLY people who aren't even on at the time. If I hit the Recently Played With tab, it is the same list of players every time, no matter what day/time/server.

Kinda frustrating, cause I can't view people's profiles or add new friends >(

Anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Same here, its always blank. I have to exit TF2 for it to update my recently played with list. Some multiplayer games (Sanctum) don't even populate this list even after you exit. Good detective work is the only way to find them again.

It only shows me the reported players for some reason :( when its empty it always says no players are reported on this server or something like that

This has been a problem ever since i joined Steam and it has annoyed me since. Valve apparently doesn't listen or don't see any reason to fix these issues.

This is the same with the gmod workshop issue where no one can get the workshop to work on several games like left 4 dead and gmod and has been a problem for me ever since i got the game. Still no fix for whatever reason and i think the main problem is is that i have not seen any response or acknowledgement for any issue I've seen from Valve which worries me that bugs like these will never be fixed.

I guess we'll have to wait as usual... oh but be sure that you buy their games from the holiday sale because thats their main priority!

Recently got this glitch so I guess I'm welcome to the club too, Tried validating steam cache, that didn't work, reinstalling steam, nope. As a trader fro Tf2, this can be quite the annoyance when trying to find people to trade with on trade servers.
