Hello everyone, Please help me get this working. When I try to play it through Steam this is what I do: Double click "Counter-Strike: Source Beta" Am I doing anything wrong? :P Here's what happens: The splash screen (which is awesome, I'll say) shows for about 10 seconds, with no buttons like play or anything, and then the screen turns black for half a second (changing resolution?) and returns to the splash screen for like 1/10 a second, and BOOM! Desktop. I have downloaded 100% content for this game. I have tried logging out of Steam, restarting comp. I believe I need to delete CS:SB and redownload it, but it takes hours and I will not do it untill I am sure that is what I need to do.

    You could try this-

    -temp. solution to desktop crash-
    I found that simply creating a desktop shortcut for CS Source, and adding -dev -console to its target let me into the game.
    To do this, find CSS in the games menu, right click and choose "create desktop shortcut". When you get the shortcut, bring up its properties, and in the "target" box, add -dev -console at the very end (remember to leave spaces)
