    This is a new one for me.
    And I can't really find anything on it.

    I am creating my map. I only created one side, the red side. Got that all done, everything still worked. I played it. I coped the red side, rotated it, and placed it where it's supposed to go. And now it no longer works and I get this error.

    I've done it like three times, and every time the same thing happens.

    Help?

    I'm guessing you already tried the suggestions on the steam support forums?

    Sorry can't help otherwise.

    EDIT: my bad the error they mention there is diffferent: reliable channel overflow. Sorry.

    As far as I can tell, it's usually caused by having too many props or other kinds of entities rendered at any given time in your map. This makes sense in your situation where the error didn't occur at first, because only half the map was actually there. Keep in mind that things do not have to be shown on your screen to cause this problem. Poor mapping practices can cause larger amounts of your level to be rendered than is necessary.

    Check out this thread on optimization first: http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=426
