    I get this weird lag when I make my own server. These are just listen servers made from the game menu.
    This is kind of annoying especially when I want to play maps like tr_walkway.

    What happens is if I'm walking up stairs I will just go straight through them, and a few seconds later I will pop up at the top of them, where I'm supposed to be.
    Say I'm on 2fort, if I go to cross the bridge off the battlements I will just walk across the air to the other side. While this happens it makes all the sounds of me hitting the floor and swimming in the water, even though on the screen I'm still in the air. A few seconds later if I stop for a bit or just jump, I will teleport to where I'm meant to be, like in the water.

    I have searched for this and haven't found anything, and it only happens when I make my own server.

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Sounds like some strange client-side prediction errors. Does cl_showerrors or cl_smooth seem to have any effect?

    Ensure your network settings (ex. cl_interp, cl_interp_ratio) are at their defaults. (0.100, 2)

    Hmm, that didn't seem to fix it. It's still not working. I have tried both those commands, restarting the game, changing the level. And I put those commands in the Autoexec.cfg

    Is there anything else you know that may fix this?

    I have(had?) the same issue. I tried to reproduce it but couldn't. I changed the maxplayers from 1 to 5, and set the time limit to -1. Also, the first map I tried was one of the Valve ones. Hope this helps.

    Follow shippouofdoom's advice.

    When creating a server, change the players slots to 24. The problem you are having is that the server has not enough places for the bots.

    Thank you very much, all of you. I will try that as soon as I get home from work.
