Had to allow an exception for - C:\program files\valve\steam\steamapps\<name>\team fortress 2\hl2.exe
No warnings to allow this through originally came up, but after I installed the latest Nvidia drivers I did get asked to allow 'Gameoverlayui.exe' through as well, which I think is related to HL2?
Gameoverlayui.exe is the Steam Community chat thingo - mixes in really well with TF2 IMO. Love it how it incorporates your SteamID profile into the game by showing your avatar and recording stats etc. - would like to see more games doing this kinda thing!
Mine runs flawlessly - not one single problem with it
Vista users, it's always worth trying to run it in Compatibility mode for XP, and make sure you are an admin / run the game with Admin privileges.
Haha what an eventful day though...sitting in the #Tf2 IRC channel, waiting for a proper update...constantly restarting Steam with the hope it might be ready..finally seeing the client download an update, get all excited then realise it was nothing...be told it was only a few hours off..seeing servers gradually pop up (with noone in them) as Valve sorts out their DS software...finally it says its ready after downloading an update, decrypting files, launching....DOESN'T LAUNCH. Everyone getting pissed off, waiting waiting, people telling you all this crazy stuff to do that has no effect at all...then finally, a new update, and it works! lol, was it worth the wait? Hard to say....
