This happened to me. I fixed by disabling "find local (or lan idk) games automatically".

Exclamation

I host my own servers and for the last couple weeks no one has been able to join them. I just tried a clean server install and that didn't help. The server console gives a message about bogus payload data, which I thought means something is out of date, but everything is updated. I have double and triple checked that it was. I tried the solutions listed in this thread, but so far nothing has made a difference. My servers are configured to only allow connections from a lobby, but if I change that I CAN join from the steam group server list. However, no one else is able to join if I do that. Please tell me there is a solution to this!

Go into the game and look under Options -> Multiplayer
The first option is 'Automatically dscover LAN games' (or similar). Make sure to unselect that!

This thread is not meant to be covering Serverside problems, and i dont know of that one. But Payload errors sound to me like you seem to have some connection, maybe firewall problems. Could even be a defect ethernet chip..
Honestly, i have no idea what that could be, try opening a new thread for it?

I already tried the editing of the masterservers.vdf file and that didn't work either.

alright killer, lets try to solve your problem :0)

Give me some background, what OS do you have? If it is Seven or Vista does your Steam sit in the Program Files folder? What did you try so far?
