    This morning I loaded up a map I am working on and noticed this line in the console:
    Code:
    40.683577 BlockingGetDataPointer:  Async I/O Force custom\gmt_hotel\air_raid_siren.wav (  609.99 msec /  610.00 msec total )
    Does anyone know what this means? Is it a bug or an error with my custom sound file? The only thing I found when Googling it was this on Github relating to Counter Strike: Source - https://github.com/KyleSanderson/Counter-Strike--Source-changes/blob/master/engine/CAsyncWaveData

    Sorry for necro, but I noticed the same error showing up in my console for all but 1 custom sound I am using in a project. It only shows up when the sound.cache is being built. Like when I delete my sound cache and load my project. Or when someone loads my map for the first time.

    Have you figured out the cause of this error? Thank you in advance, I couldn't find anything meaningful besides this thread.

    Do the sounds actually work? If so, I wouldn't worry about this. TF2 spits out all kinds of errors and weird lines all the time, many of which mean nothing.

    Given the date I originally posted, that would have been on my old PC that was in the middle of dying at that point.

    Thanks for the info
    Guess I'll just ignore that then

    I really appreciate the help :)
