My friend is trying to play Source, but he can't for one reason... The models are fine, guns are there... But everything is brown. He can't really play when things are brown. Any suggestions? He's tried reinstalling Steam, getting materials that I have...

    He got it fixed and sent a bug report to Steam, so I think it'll be fine.

    Nope. That's not the problem. The problem was, CS:S decided to randomly destroy everything in the materials folder. To fix this, he had to end the steam process and open back up Source again. An alternative was to restart his computer and do the same.

    Well, it's not ALL brown... Basically, everything is plain, textureless, boxy, etc. He has it at DX9, medium settings... But things are VERY blocky and almost unrecognizable sometimes.

    Doo-Doo Brown? (sorry for the stupid humor)

    That's the first time I've heard of something like that; I've seen purple, green, and black. I'm not sure if there's a connection between the color and the issue, but just in case make him update drivers. I'll try to see if there's something about that on the interweb...

    That's strange. The only texture issue i know of is the purple and black checker default when a texture is missing. Are you sure it's brown?
