Stuck at "RETRIEVING SERVER INFO"!

Yeah, as the title says… When I try to enter a specific server, my computer just freezes at “RETRIEVING SERVER INFO” and then after a while it says I timed out… I know the server has a lot of downloads because I played it on my friends computer and it works fine there… The server is a PERP server hosted by sniperboys.com… I do have the map for the server so please help me! My system: Windows XP Home SP3 - Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.66GHz - 2 GB RAM - Graphics: ATI Radeon HD 3600 Series…

When a server is up for a while, there’s a weird issue where clients will be unable to connect due to hanging on “Retrieving Server Info…”.

There’s nothing you can do, unless you can somehow contact the server owner, or somebody else in a position to restart the server, and ask politely for them to do so, while explaining the problem.

I’ve had that before. It takes a while sometimes.

I figured it out, thanks for trying to help me but it was just my crappy computer. I cleaned it up and it worked xD
