    Hi, I saw Cuniczek's map get released so I downloaded it really quick and went off to CS:S, but I got this error:
    View attachment 5118

    I can't open CS:S and what I've seen from the internet, people are saying to uninstall CS:S (which I don't want to do). If anybody else has any further knowledge of this please respond.

    PS, it's all cuni's fault. :giggle:

    your missing a file ?? did you move your folder or something?

    Edit: Maybe do Verify Intergrity of Game Cache... Right click on game... properties > Local Files

        Go to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Source\cstrike folder, open up gameinfo.txt, and copy everything from this, into your file.

        game "Counter-Strike Source"

        // another search path will be inserted above the english one by replacing "_english" with

        // custom content that overrides the default game files, it just needs to be
        // packed up in the .bsp file so that it will be mounted as a map search pack.

        // but only while you are connected that server and on that map.

        EDIT: not sure if it matters, but the forum wont put in all the indents and whatnot. If that doesn't work for whatever reason like that, try this. http://pastebin.com/v0GYnV0s

        EDIT 2: Delete everything that is in your file, then put this in. You're replacing everything that is in your current file.
