Stuck on retrieving server info...
« on: August 23, 2012, 06:16:11 pm »
What do?

Things I've done before this happened:
-Defragmented game files

Dunno if this might've led to this issue.

Things I've done to resolve this issue:

-Played "The waiting game" (Waited forever for it to get to "Sending Client info", never happened)
-Followed the guide here under the MAC section of the guide.

I also use a mac but I still have the same file directory locations for steam and tf2 as a PC user.
Ex:
Windows: C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\[SteamUsername]\Team Fortress 2\....
Mac: Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/[SteamUsername]/Team Fortress 2/...

Halp pls.

It's an issue that Valve introduced with the MvM update. It was supposedly fixed 2 days ago though, so I'm surprised you're still having the problem. Unfortunately, I also don't know of any workarounds.

Its as if they don't have playtesters. Goddamnit.

Who needs play-testers to tell you to fix things without paying you when you can sell the game and ask the community to be play-testers while making money

Trust me, I'll take a PC ANY day. I can't play shit on this computer.

Maybe one day I'll save up for a gaming PC or something. Depending on how life turns out.

EDIT: Okay I got it to work. I just had to play the waiting game in hardmode and wait until I time out completely. Then rejoin the server.
This MvM thing is awesome but they need to patch the shit out of it even though there have been two patches in the past few hours. I ragequitted after crashing midgame.

Linux master race reporting in.

Nah just kidding, I wish I spent more time on it. My Laptop is dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu, but for some reason I lost interest in it and haven't touched my laptop since.
I place $20 into a box. So do you. There is now $40 in the box. I sell the box to you for $30. We both walk away with a $10 profit.
