Loading Map Crash

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Source

Hello, I hope you are all well.

So, recently I've downloaded some maps from here, I am intended to play with it with bots, but some of the maps I've downloaded is redirecting me to my desktop, for a lack of better word. There were no crash reports or one of those "not responding" pop-up message. Though I am sure that I installed it correctly, but I feel something rather off.

So, if anyone has any idea how to fix this (or linking me to an older, available thread discussing the same problem as I have here), I would be very grateful.

Best regards,

    If you have the dev console on (do not close it), there would be errors showing up.

    Hello FRIEND! I strongly encourage you to check out my server and join my counter strike source community and MOTDPAGE. I have specifically invested money and a lot of time into developing the perfect server for fellow community gamers! ESPECIALLY HERE ON GAMEBANANA =]!!! i have over 200 custom maps uploaded to my server from game banana and a few other sources (mostly gamebanana) and i also have kick idle off - friendly fire off. 20 bots (good size) kicked on player join. with sourcemod installed so if your alone and YOU HAVE THE MAP DOWNLOADED AND INSTALLED you can type nominate in chat to pick ANY map and then type rtv in chat to switch to the map you picked INSTANTLY. this is a united state east coast server so i really really hope you can connect to it i think my server will be just what your looking for. oh yeah and my server has NO WEAPON BANS which every single damn server in source is awp/semiauto snipers banned. Its really thee best server online in source right now. ALSO if there are ANY maps that are not listed in my maplist on the motdpage please just let me know and i will literally add it to the roster and server FOR YOU! <3
    SERVER INFO:.. HERE_______________
    MOTD PAGE:... HERE_______________

    And now to answer your question.
    It is very important to have all the files that come with the map installed correctly. even sound files can crash a running game. as far as i know there is 1 map cs/or/de_number13_b3 or something like that, i didnt add the sound files and it crashes the server the server switches to a default map when it does right after so watch for that map till i fix it. other than that make sure the maps arent renamed or files arent renamed from originals etc.

    So, I opened the console and it said that I'm missing some particle files. How do I fix this since I do not see any particles folder in my base game directory? Should I unpack all the .vpk files or was it something else?

    If you're using an older non-steam version most custom maps won't load because they changed the format in 2013.
