I've tried this on a couple maps and this is all i get on the screen
Is this still happening for you? I'm unable to reproduce it.
Yeah its still happening.
When did you first notice it wasn't working? Did it work prior to that? Is the MOTD when you join blank too or only when you type !illegal?
MOTD doesn't work either, lock up the thread cause I tried in another server and I get the same thing.
Working fine on my end and i'm also a Mac user.
The `cl_disablehtmlmotd` cvar comes to mind but even if that's set to 1 it should still show a plaintext MOTD, not a blank screen. Maybe the behavior is different on a Mac? Make sure it's set to 0.
The cl command dindu nuffin, setting it to 1 left plain text but nothing useful.
Is there a fix for this? Just started happening to me.
Have you tried using the Beta build of Steam?
Not sure if the MOTD's use the same Web Browser as Steam (Probably).. But
But Steam just updated their web browser yesterday (5/4/2016).
Maybe this is causing an issue?
Updated the web browser component to Chromium version 49.0.2623.110
Nope haven't used the beta build. And it's been going on a little bit before that update.
Try the beta update and see what happens.
Using the Beta update seems to fix the issue. To activate the Beta update, click Steam>Settings>Account and under Beta Participation, click change and choose the client beta. @Kyro
Hot damn it fixed it. So yeah if you could just go ahead and fix this one that'd be greeaattttttt.
In your steam library, Right click on CS:S, Click properties, hit "set launch options"
Without the quotations, Type "-dxlevel -110" and press apply the setting
Launch up into CS:S, Be sure to go into the options and set your video settings back to what they were.
Set the launch option but it didn't change anything.
Tried that to, didn't work.
Try setting it to 90, 95, or 98 as well and see what happens.
