It gets to the loading screen, then crashes to the desktop and says "Platform Error: module failed to initialize" or something like that. Anyone know what this could be? I've never had a problem with CSS crashing before. Edit; Just so no one thinks it's my system specs...

    Make a list of the things you have already done. It makes repetition less likely.

    I've posted many help threads, and have gotten answers without offering points, I just say you in another thread asking for thumbs to...

    Do you have an old CFG or anything still installed?
    Make sure when you reinstall you delete the entire cstrike folder of everything in it, then install.

    Try updating graphic drivers deleting clientregistry.blob and starting css under these directX settings.

    DirectX Version 9.0 = -dxlevel 90
    DirectX Version 8.1 = -dxlevel 81
    DirectX Version 8.0 = -dxlevel 80
    DirectX Version 7.0 = -dxlevel 70

    It sounds like it was unable to load the client.dll module, although this usually ends up as "Engine Error: Could not load library client.".

    Can you play HL2DM? Purely based on the fact that TF2 and CS:S do not use the same engine.


    Maybe answer us that?

    I'd try deleting/moving it(client.dll), but back it up somewhere like the desktop first. Then I would restart my PC or Steam and try running cs:s.

    If Steam makes a new one, see if it can run first. Then if it does, do whatever you want with the extra client.dll.

    The answer?

    xero(some # I can't recall) posted that disabling steam community in game worked for him... that explains a lot... I should've thought of that earlier.. it sure would have saved me a good 2-3 hours...
