    lately i've been having this error message when i try to run around on a map after having compiled it in hammer.

    it makes no sense though, since i'm hosting it locally (on my pc) so therefore the client and host are one and the same. i cannot understand why it thinks that i'm timing out.

    it can get very annoying when you're looking for that perfect angle to take a screenshot from.
    worst of all, this can happen during a buildcubemap operation and interrupt it...

    has anyone come across this issue? how have you fixed it?

    try using the +sv_lan parameter in the launch options.
