Looking for a fix

A Forum Thread for Source Filmmaker

I have had it with these motherf water textures on this motherf map

Alright half life 2 maps are compatible with SFM, everyone knows that.
Trouble is, the water seems to break.

Long story short I'm looking for this guy's fix pack as it is the ONLY THING I HAVE EVER FOUND toward this goal; I have gone through dozens of threads that remain unanswered several years later.

Only actual fix I have ever found is a pack "sfm_waterfix.7z" by a guy named 'The Kins' on Facepunch:

Whereas at the time of his posting says he was somehow unable to actually upload this pack to the workshop, therefore he used a dropbox link.

Well that dropbox link is dead. 404. 

Does anyone know where I can get this or contact this guy to maybe update his link...?
Or something. If I can fix the HL2 maps this way it should fix EVERY OTHER map I have that does'nt use custom shit.

I've spent 2 or 3 years off and on trying to fix this myself but shaders and water are not my forte in Source.

Most of the "fixes" I find are "Use a waterplane model available on the workshop" but the problem is naturally water plane are going to be transparent and it will clearly show the flickering glitchfest beneath. Its like putting scotch tape over a broken TV screen.
