Steam Auth Ticket has been cancelled

I am currently developing a gamemode, and I always get the error message


Steam Auth Ticket has been cancelled

Garrysmod crashes with no error and no dump file.

I created a client-side console log and that shows nothing but a blank line when I crash.

I found some pre-historic forum post about the same error and it was to do with ULX. I don’t have ULX installed on either client or server!

What is this about? The gamemode is no where near complex enough for it to be a coding issue. Is there a function to handle steam auth tickets that I have missed?

Please help facepunch community, you are my only hope… DAA, DARRRR. DA DA DA DARRRR DARRRRR

This is not the Help & Support forum

It would help if this forum was a bit more ordered…

It would help if you took a couple more seconds to read.

This community is rather hostile these days…

well some people are rather dumb

you’ve been banned from steam lol
[sp]not really. All you have to do is delete clientregisty.blob[/sp]

Haha, had me worried then

Unfortunately I have tried this. I have also re-installed gmod twice, disabling all addons etc (The usual ‘fixes’)

literally all the error means is you lost connection to steam auth servers for a moment and its booting you for it, check your net/etc
its probably just some packet loss

Thanks for the advice, but I have 50mb broadband. My connection is fine. (Im LAN’d not wireless).

Even if I disable VAC and run garrysmod and steam in offline mode (where auth tickets are not issued) I get the same error!

Well that makes no sense, so the evidence points to something wrong with your computer/setup

It’s literally a case of resetting your router.

Happens to me regularly.
