First you say this version is ******, and then you say the bug exists in 2.0.9. Which one is it?

Dude5464673 Jun 2 2013 replied:

Calm down, that version is ****** because at least in 2.0.9 I could get into a game, it would just crash after a bit, so I guess its a bug in both that wasn't fixed. No need to get so irritated over nothing.

We think, we found the problem. For some Geforce cards the source engine forces the dx level back to a lower level, which end up using shader model 2.0 (which was removed in this release). We are trying to fix it for the next version.

Actually, it seems to be the case for all dx9 cards

in the launch options, put "-dx_level 9" or "dxlevel 9" without quotes(and I can't remember which).
