You made another thread here, and didn't provide any real information we can use to help you there, either.

There's a network problem. It could be on the server's end, but if it happens to you in every game you join, then it's most likely on your end. Answer us these questions, especially the router/firewall one.

Your spam is not appreciated. Let's not have anymore of that, ok?

Well, ditch EVM if you want much help here. We don't support it or any problems it causes.

You're going to have to find out if you're behind a router or a firewall, since that's most directly related to your problem. Does your computer connect directly to a modem, or do you have multiple computers in your house that share the same connection?

Chances are, it's a hardware problem. Your hard drive is probably from the stone age, and takes a while to load maps. This happened to me before I got my badass new system. I'm betting that's your problem.

He just said that he has multiple computers but one modem. He most likely is behind a router that might be blocking a couple or ports that steam/halflife requires. He could also just be messed up by trying to install evm. The question is, did you play esf online before attempting to install evm?
