Connecting to server stops at "Retrieving server info", where it decides to go back to the menu. The console, cleared before pressing the button, prints this: Code: Connecting to 188.8.131.52:27017... Connected to 184.108.40.206:27017 TF2C (Deathmatch) Map: dm_wiseau Players: 5 / 24 Build: 2954332 Server Number: 12 COM_CheckGameDirectory: game directories don't match (tf2c / tf2classic) This seems to indicate that the game directory in /sourcemods/ needs to be called "tf2classic". I renamed the directory and it worked! I don't know why the name would make it not work, though. I guess we should have a section for "Common Bug Solutions" for things like this, too, as I would believe many people would have also have encountered this.
