I have been wanting to make a TF2 short ever since the game was announced. However, the TF2 face poser repeatedly crashes on startup. I have tried every possible solution known to man and it still refuses to work. From what I can tell, it may be related to having an old steam account that uses an email address for a login. I think the “@” might be breaking things.
Another huge problem with the SDK tools are the fact that they have forced updates. Sometimes these updates add bugs or make the tools not work at all.
