Calling net.Start with unpooled message name

Calling net.Start with unpooled message name

When calling net.Start the message name should be pooled. This means that instead of sending the string over the network - it will be able to send a number representing the string.

To pool a string you need to call

serverside before trying to send the message. Ideally you'd do this when your Lua files are being loaded - but where that's not possible you need to do it at least a couple of seconds before calling the message to be sure that it'll work.

util.AddNetworkString only needs to be called once - and can only be called serverside.
