Here’s how it goes, I open up Gmod, as usual, and connect to one of my favorite servers. Trouble is, the first server I connect to always stops loading at “Sending Client Info” with it displaying the loading bar stuck half way through.
The game doesn’t crash though, I am free to click the cancel button on the loading bar, with it working.
You might ask then, “Why cant you just reconnect to the server then?” Well you see, the server accepts my client info, but doesn’t let me in, so any further retries are blocked with “Steam Validation Rejected”.
I have two options after all this happens, I either wait a long time for the server to auto-kick my presence, or go to another server.
This problem also happens in Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike: Source
Any help would be appreciated greatly.
