    Hello I've been following UEAKCrash's tutorials, but I ran into a strange problem. After compiling, and trying to run the map I an error: "CD Key authentication invalid for internet servers."

    Also for some reason it ignores all my previously set up settings for TF2, and overall it's just bizarre. Any ideas? Thanks.

    Also if it matters here is the compilation log.

    Restart your steam, and then re-run TF2. Should fix the issue.

    I only get that error when I try to play TF2 while not logged into steam. So it's probably something Steam related like that.

    That message comes up when your tf2 isn't up to date.

    Hammer seems to load a different set of settings. Any changes you do there will be saved there and will not affect your "normal" TF2. This can be usefull, so that you can test maps with higher graphics and later play on it with more fps.
    In my case the hammer-tf2 enables normalmaps while the normal one doesn't. I have no idea how to change that either.
