Team Fortress 2 crashes upon joining game
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 2, 2010
I just recently got Team Fortress 2 to install and whenever I try to join a game, the load bar goes up to 99% (sending client info), stops, and the game quits. Steam is still running and operational afterward however. Also, the game's menu and start-up sequences work just fine. The only problem is that I can't join a game.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Linux with an 80 gig hard drive, have Wine 1.2 installed, am running an ATI Radeon 9600 graphics card (which ran Team Fortress 2 just fine when I used to run Windows XP), I have my wine configured to Windows XP, am not running any DLL overrides, I have my windows settings (in wine config) to "allow the windows manager to decorate windows" and "allow windows manager to control windows".
Also, I have no theme for desktop integration, have the sound driver set to ALSA Driver, hardware acceleration is at full with the default sample rate at 44100 and the default bits per sample at 16.
My Internet connection is DSL. I
Team Fortress 2 blank screen
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 17, 2011
The first time I ran TF2, it worked fine. When I created a listen server, I left my computer and came back to see the game crashed
I don't know much about that crash and that's not what this is about. When I loaded up TF2 again, the screen was blank, all but my cursor. The buttons still worked (It was a pain in the neck to find them, though), and I managed to navigate my way through the video options and get the game into windowed mode. After that I still couldn't see anything so that didn't help
What's really weird is it was fine the first time. Could it be that I increased the resolution? But after I did that it was still normal until the next time. I haven't tried starting a game yet, as it is very difficult to find the button.
Team Fortress 2 from NTFS Partition. Working?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 3, 2008
So I know, in the past, running steam games from my windows partition in wine has never worked. But just for kicks, I tried it after the Ibex (and WINE) update. To my great surprise, Steam started! The only issues were the old text issues with chat which have always been there! Surely tf2 won't start, I thought. Imagine my surprise upon getting past the loading screen, to a menu, albeit without any graphics. The menu worked, but the background image loaded. I couldn't figure out the issue. Then I (without the benefit of any text in the server menus) randomly clicked the blank space till I got a server with room on it, and I was playing! However, I was getting about 10 frames a minute, and all the overlays were invisible. Any ideas? I'd love to not have 2 copies of this massive game on my hard drive.
Team Fortress 2 Set to directX 8 and can't set it back
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 7, 2010
Contrary to what the appDB says, it runs on directX 9 completely perfectly for me as far as I can tell. Max settings and everything looks great and runs smooth.
I noticed a little while back that I would seem to get some network lag in game where players would be stuttery as they walked occasionally even if it said I had very good ping. Now I know this wasn't video lag since the whole game was smooth, just not the players. I thought maybe directX had something to do with the networking so I figured I'd give directX 8 a spin like the appDB says. I added -dxlevel 85 to my launch parameters and it pretty much wrecked everything. My FPS sags pretty much all the time even with not much going on in game. I exited the game and removed -dxlevel 85 from my launch parameter area but it didn't unset it. When I go to advanced video options it shows "hardware directX level" in a greyed out box as DX8. Software directX is showing 9, though. I tried setting -dxlevel 9 too, again to no av
Team Fortress 2 startup freeze
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 6, 2010
So I downloaded Wine 1.2 and all the necessary programs to run steam and games for steam. For a couple weeks Steam and Team Fortress 2 ran smooth (60 fps average), but all of a sudden when I load up Team Fortress 2 the game lags heavily in the start animation, and freezes when the "source" animation starts to fade away. I've also noticed that in the middle of the first animation the sound disappears. Before I was running Team Fortress 2 with -dxlevel 81. There is no way to exit the program when it freezes except to ctrl-alt-delete, and kill it with terminal. I'm open to all suggestions because I've tried everything I can think of. Thanks!

Team Fortress 2 Problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 23, 2007
Hey everyone, first post finally after... almost a year of using Ubuntu?
Anyways, I'm having a slight problem with TF2 that I couldn't find anywhere else on the forums. I can start Steam, and Orange Box installed with absolutely no problems. However, when I check for servers in TF2 (where they just apply the 'Team Fortress 2' filter) I get nothing.
I've left it up for ten minutes or so at a time, and not one server pops up. Traffic goes out according to bmon, and I can get all sorts of servers in CS:S, so my initial noob diagnosis has me thinking its not Steam or a net problem.
Are there just so few TF2 servers around this early in the release? Is anyone else having this same problem?
Thanks in advance for any help

Team Fortress 2 (?)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2013
Hello everyone, So a couple of day's ago (Yesterday actually) I was having some trouble with my computer (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2141864) but I managed to fix that. Now I'm trying to run Team Fortress 2 but I can't because the graphics are messed up and the game crashes when it hits the Source engine screen (before the first loading screen).
How do I know that there's a loading screen after the Source engine screen? Well, before Steam asked me to "update my drivers" I could reach that loading screen. Only it never got past it... And the graphics weren't that messed up (Only the first two screens (Valve screen and Source screen) were green).
I looked at the system requirements for that game and apparently my laptop should be able to handle it (I think):
Specs (Acer Aspire 5315) :
Intel Celeron processor 540 (1.86 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache) Up to 252MB Mobile Intel Graphic Media Accelerator X3100 1GB DDR2 15.4" WXGA Acer CrystalBrite
Team Fortress 2 poor performance
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 29, 2008
AMDx2 4200 (2.2 GHZ)
3 GB Ram
Geforce 8600 GT
Running on Hardy with Wine 1.0.
I run it on Windows maxed with perfect performance. I understand since Wine is an emulator it is a bit harsher on your specs like all emulators are. However even if I turn down the resolution and all the settings to the point that the game looks like it's 10 years old, it still runs poorly.
