    Problem loading maps

    Does anyone else have trouble loading maps sometimes?

    I just tried to join vCTF-Skyscraper, I started the map download, it was kind of slow, so I got it off filefront. I restarted UT3 and it just sticks on the loading map screen.

    Then I tried to join and it happened with DM-Agony3-SE (which I waited to download), and it still stuck on the loading screen.

    I think the server thought I was in and left, so it changed maps to DM-Gardens, which I already have and it's been loading 10mins. The weird thing is I hear churchbells in game sounds, but still stuck on the loading screen.

    A good test if it's "fake loading" is if the game alt-tabs (it usually doesn't until it's done loading the map).

    I can still hit F10 and type exit (or disconnect) in the console (though the console doesn't show up, same map loading screen). After exit UT3 has an error.

    I can load maps fine sometimes, I'm not sure if I have ever loaded a map that hasn't worked. I have loaded custom maps before.

    I did download and load DM-TekarisForestRC7 fine. I know I've played DM-Deck, VCTF-CBP3-TheDig, and DM-Conveyor before.

    Got this after quitting.
