      On October 1, 2014, and update had been added to Team Fortress 2. I believe there are compatibility issues for Linux users using AMD drivers because that is what most are claiming they have. There may have been an update for Linux( not listed in the update news) that improved the memory of the game. I do know some maps and exploits were fixed. The most recent update does not display any graphics in the game, not even the video of the valve logo when launching the game. It is not an issue with all source games because I tested Left 4 Dead 2 and it works just fine. Other users have claimed to back track to a previous update and the graphics are fine, it is just not possible to play online due to the servers being up to date; some claim to have switch to a  different graphics card company and the game is operational.

      This is my info for my computer.
