Whats the directory for installing a mod on Steam? I've tried C:/blahblahblah/SteamApps, but it won't work :/

The mod I'm trying to install is The Specialists v2.0 (and then upgrade it to 2.1) but I can't seem to figure out how to get it to show up on Steam.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

I've done that, but for some reason, I don't get the username part of the directory :/ Just C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps. I install it to that directory, but no luck :/

Yeah, I don't get C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\\halfl-life\

I get C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\

Any ideas?

Well...I just installed it to the folder, and to no avail. It launches a batch file on the desktop, double click it, no luck. Its not under 3rd party games, either. I don't know why I suddenly got my email address there, either. It wasn't there before.

Well, maybe this might be the problem. I downloaded the Steam CS 1.6 cache, not the full thing. Could that be an issue?

It seems that youre steam isn't set up right. Have logged on and played any games on it? If you have, you should get C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\\half-life

You have to have subscribed to hl in steam.

Yeah, I just played CS for about 5 minutes and got the directory. Now if I could only install the specialist :/

I am subscribed and everything.

you have to open up half-life at least once

I bought CS:CZ, not HL.

HL should come with it buddy. If you're subscribed to all the games, you are subscribed to hl.

you have to have started half-life at least once, or the half life stuff will not be in here:

x:\program files\steam\steamapps\youremail\half-life\

Open Half-Life, let it update. Close it and then install the mod. It will work.

I told you. Open up half-life with steam!!! Do as I say and it will work. Open it up like you are going to play it. Let it update. And you will then be able to install!

I'm being completely serious, under the games menu, I do not see Half Life. Maybe I don't have it registered, I don't know, but I know I bought CS:CZ. I don't have my CD key, though, because we're moving and its all in boxes :/

Maybe I can get it to work now, I remembered my friends username/password, going to try it now with his. He had original HL with all the games and junk.

Try opening Play Games menu and browse games. However, it should show up, because every game shows up, it should just be unlit(greenish text and greenish icon)

everyone this is all wrong my computer says
C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\yoursteamusername

Somebody messed with your installation then.

Jan 8 2005, 1:08am Anchor

Nope, it's possible to register a username, not email now.

Really? That's weird, but I still don't see why that would keep him from having half-life, which he claims apparently doesn't show up.

Mine shows up as username too, not e-mail.

Install it in the Counter Strike directory, as long as its the original Counter Strike.
