My dedi loads the map fine, but about 90% of the time I connect from the client, it will crash when it finishes sending client info with the message 'hl2.exe has stopped working'. About 10% of the time I will get connected, I will be in a room full of potted plants, the game will freeze for about a minute, then crash with 'hl2.exe has stopped working'. I also get mdmps that are completely empty.
My computer's specs are:
Yea yea, the drivers are up to date.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
GFX: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250
RAM: 3GB DDR2 ( 1GB,  512MB)
PSU: Antec 550W TP-550
HDD:  320GB generic (5400 RPM) (one is completely partitioned for linux)
OS: WinVista Home Premium 32-bit
P.S. Yes, I have r_hunkalloclightmaps 0 in my client and server's autoexec ;)
Actually, I did get the map to load _once_ about a week ago, but that was when I was on drugs so I went and noclipped above the map. Then it crashed. :saddowns:
