    Recently decided to have a go at mapping, learned the bare basics of hammer, and threw together a simple map.

    When I played it in-game, there is this irritating problem - jumping is laggy, climbing or descending ramps leads to the view passing through them and into black space or levitating mid air. The levitating player view behaves as if you were where you should be; bumping into walls and picking up health packs. Firing even hits as if you were where you should be on the ground.

    Firing weapons, reloading, or taunting places the view point wehre you be - and constantly firing or reloading while moving fixes the problem.

    I'm sure this is a stupid mistake or I've missed something important in the tutorials, but can't find what it is.

    this has nothing to do with your map.
    maxplayers is set to 1, this make source think you're in a singleplayer game.
    set it to anything +1

    Thanks, didn't think that would matter. Been irritating me for a day or two.

    I've been having this problem too and just put it at the back of my mind thinking I'd get around to it later.

    Sorry to be an absolute noob, but how would I set maxplayers to anything greater than 1?

    Open the console by pressing `
    If you don't have it enabled, you can enable it in advanced keyboard options.

    Once you have it open, type
    maxplayers 2 (or any other number >1)

    Starting your map from the create server + sign will avoid this but take slightly longer to load.

    Could do the trick, but make sure you haven't set players to 1 in there. cause then you'll still have the same problem ;)
