I have an AMD HD 7700. When I play TF2 everything works fine, but when I play GMOD TF2 maps (or any GMOD maps) I get this crazy flickering between different layers in view and NOT in view... sure seems like a video driver issue, but wouldn't TF2 be running the same? Is it possible GMOD is running 32-bit mode while TF2 is 64 bit?
