    For some reason, Team Fortress 2 will no longer launch on my iMac (i5, OS X.8.4, latest version of Steam). Message = quit unexpectedly.
    It was working fine a couple of days ago, and I didn't install any specific software or apps...

    All other Valve and non-Valve games launch without problems. Have removed TF2 and reinstalled, no better.
    Have removed steam and reinstalled, no better. Anyone else have this problem ?

    This doesn't sound like the same problem exactly that I had but it's worth a shot. My thread can be found HERE detailing what I found when TF2 was crashing for me. Worth a shot as a start.

    Sorry, that wasn't the problem, apparently. Thx anyway.

    I had this problem recently, turned out it was a USB-Playstation controller adapter. TF2 must be iterating the HID USB devices poorly. Solution for me was to unplug the darn thing.

    Run with just stock keyboard + 2-button mouse, you may have a USB device that is causing what happened to me.

    Good luck out there!

    I unplugged my Logitech Precision Pro joypad (a basic PS-like controller I use to play SNES games with SNES9X) and lo and behold : TF2 launched perfectly !

    Strange, I always have the joypad plugged in, TF2 launched without problems before, with the joypad plugged in. I guess some update messed it up...
