    Hello,

    When I'm trying to launch my map within hammer editor it gives me this error message
    "SteamCD Key authentication invalid for internet servers".
    Anyone know how to fix this?

    Try restarting your computer, steam sometimes decides to just lock you out of tf2 like this. Also if your internet is being choppy and you are disconnected from steam, it will kick you out after a bit. So be connected to steam if you arent.

    Oh yeah i also had to deal with this issiue, i just unchecked the "launch tf2 after compile" and just opened tf2 manualy and loaded in the map myself, it randomly disapeared after a while. (it seemed to work once i cleaned my computer for junk, it could probably be that?)
