I can't make my Source SDK to work.
There's some bugs Valve has to fix.

But this tutorial is the best one I've ever seen!!! 10/10!

CarAccident, if you go to your "Tools" tab
and rightclick the Source SDK, click properties.
after that, click "set launch options" and enter the following:

-engine ep1

than you can just start the Source SDK, i had the same problem as you do.
