Quakeworld (tyrquake). "SERVER CONNECTION TIMED OUT."

Hi,

I’m having problems running tyr-qwcl (SDL Quakeworld client) on my Zipit Z2 (a palmtop computer). When I connect to a QW server, everything runs as expected. Until I get to the “Checking sounds…” and “Checking Models…” dialog. Soon after they run their course, I get a “Server connection timed out.” I was wondering if there is an option somewhere that increases this time limit?

Thanks.
