Clean Up

NOTE: This will reset ALL settings. Make sure you back up your binds and other custom settings before you do this.

Standard Method

If you have already have a config, or want to remove mastercomfig, delete any configs you may have in tf/custom and delete the tf/cfg folder. Then verify your game files using Steam.

Next, if you have Steam Cloud Synchronization enabled, make all the files in STEAM_FOLDER/userdata/USER_ID/440/remote/cfg blank. Do not delete them, or else Steam Cloud will redownload them. Alternatively, you can disable Steam Cloud.

Finally, launch TF2 with only the -novid -autoconfig +host_writeconfig +mat_savechanges +quit launch options. The game will launch and exit. Afterwards, remove these launch options.

Alternate Method

NOTE: This method is currently experimental.

Download TF2 Cleanup Wizard, extract the .zip file to somewhere, then run TF2CleanupWizard.exe. The wizard will clean up your TF2 installation for you!
