TF2 Minimizing FAIL.

Postby Gh0st.IRE on Sun Dec 21, 2008 11:34 am

WHen I load up TF2, When it comes to the Valve "advert" (The head with the valve on it)
If I click to skip the ad, my TF2 minimizes and maximizes non-stop until I Cntrl/Alt/Del and then cancel the Task manager.

If I dotn skip this ad it dosnt happen.

Im just wondering why it does this?
Btw, Im on Vista

add -novid to the launch options and that will go away

you steam games list then right click on the game then select "properties", on the little pop-up push the button for "set launch options" then add -novid and dont forget the - symbol with no spaces on it

Cheers, I've done that. I reckon that removes the video completly?
