need help

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Do i need to have Half-Life retail to run CL? because i got CL and installed it into a folder called "Half-Life" like the guide on the CL site instructed (despite the fact that i don't have Half-Life but it didn't work when i put it into my CS Retail folder either) and started a new game on the "easy" setting. the console screen appeared and gave me a message to the effect of: map change failed: 'c0a0' not found on server. so, that's my problem. any suggestions? :apc: lol I AM NOW FULL OF SOLDIERS

    counterstrikeshome.de has already those original CS 1.5 models, sprites, sounds. But once CS 1.6 can be downloaded as a mod, I'll remove the announcement.

    Why not ask Sebby about this? Cscentral lacks skins/weapon models/custom models download. Probably due to the uploaded Beta 5.5. Taking away 18mb out of the 999999GB Sebby has. :D

    ALL Half-Life maps are in the pak0.pak in the Valve folder. If it's not there, I recommend two things: 1) Reinstall HL using the default directory. 2) If number 1 still doesn't work about ten times, go back to the person who sold you that particular HL and throw it in his face.

    The simplest way is to install the MOD1.5 version of CS into your retail Half-Life directory and put CL there.

    I have both CS and HL installed into the Sierra folder, but both games have a different subfolder. C:\Sierra\Counter-Strike -OR- C:\Sierra\Half-life I hope i explained it okay.... i pretty much pushed next next next during the installation... too many bad experiences installing it in a custom folder. Should i merge the two folders together?

    It is pretty much safe to ascertain that the user installing Counter-Life REQUIRES an original version of Half-Life to play. The user also REQUIRES a copy of CS 1.5 retail or a modded version in order to function correctly. Now, there may be technicalities that allow some people to install and use Counter-Life without having full installs of either resource but most of those people have prior knowledge of Half-Life's used files, what is required and what is not. To make things easy on yourself, go out and get a copy of Half-Life, get a copy of CS 1.5 and install both files before you even attempt to install Counter-Life. It doesn't help users who have no prior experience with Half-Life mods to tell them they don't need half-life because they'll have no freakin' clue as how to just use "some half-life files" and not the whole install. SOLLUTION: Go out and BUY a full version of Half-Life and CS 1.5 retail. You can also download a full version of the CS 1.5 Modification from Counter-Strike.net for free. I hope this is less confusing for the user who originally posted this thread.

    Did you check your cl folder for w_backpack.mdl file? if not, check your Counter-Strike folder in your HALF-LIFE FOLDER THAT IS NOT IN STEAM! or you can just download a w_backpack.mdl file from HERE

    But steam wont allow you to play additional mods like CL, svencoop etc. You can only play the basics: Half-life, Counter-Strike, Oposing force, TFC, DMC, etc. on the steam menu of games if you go down it says Third party games and theres additional mods but they dont work. Counter-Life is in there but if I go into it, it comes as half-life and if I go to new game it will give me an error that it cant find Backpack.mdl or something! I need help!

    No Haunter! Too big! Won't be a problem for me, but for some people it might. You talking about you would include all the .wads and all the HL maps, or just the maps or just the .wads...? :crazy:

    if youve got steam it should have all the map files and sprites etc because it usually has cs and hl. if it does, copy the entire CL folder from counter-strike\ (1.5 install) to steam\steamapps\(email)\half-life\

    i am saying technically you don't have to have half-life but you have to have the models, sprites, textures, levels, sounds, and the skyboxes. so basically you need half-life.
