What's this "too many shadowed lights" cap?
seems to be some kind of cap on the amount of lights you can have per shot. I think it's 9?

that will be quite problematic for some ideas i have for future projects. what has to be done to get around this?

The limit's just for shadowed lights. You can disable shadows on lights which don't require them.

so shadows are automatically enabled on lights or something then? what preset exactly is the shadow option so i can know what one to disable?

when i got the warning all i was doing was adding volumetric lights for laser beam firing effects. I hadn't enabled any shadow options.

Shadows are on by default, yes. Just right click a light and there's an option to disable shadows.

I'm not sure if this has changed, but I believe the valve tutorials say that the maximum lights that can cast shadows is 6
