ESF is a fast paced, 3rd person fighter based on the hit anime, Dragonball Z. Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

I finished DLing ESF and I installed it into my SIERRA Folder. When I open ESF and click onto MultiPlayer, it does not but tell me about any updates but when I attempt to create a game, it sends me this message:

Could not load library C:\SIERRA\Half-Life/esf/cl_dlls\client.dll

I need some suggestions, please.

This is one of the most complicated games i tried to Download/Instal/Setup.

To get back to me, please email me at, I need bad info on how to run this game.

Thank you!

This mod is the best HL1 mod ever...pls...PLS upgrade it with more "transformations" and "saien levels"....i'd love to play with ssj4 goku :)p,and a bit more explain how to defend that how to do that cos i think its a bit difficult for everyone for a while....more charters and more abalites would be cool,and the whole DBZ story for single player,yeah that bould be cool you play through all the "good guys" role...or something like PLS make updates cos this game is SOOO COOOOL !!!!!!

i played this to day it was awsome mod for Half-Life you don't need a steamed to play it for those who asking it so far i didn't find any major bugs or game crashes ( unlike Open Beta Final 1.3 version ) you can play either steamed/lan/single with bots/..thanks for the makers that major hard efforts i well wait for OpenBetaFinal to be fixed...

I'm only Going to say this once and If you can't understand this I suggest you give up.... or at least get someone who knows more than you to read this...

Step one: Make sure you have HALF-LIFE Installed... (NOT HALF LIFE 2 or any other....just plain HALF-LIFE.

step 2: Make sure It's a Legal copy and then Download Steam if you do not have it.

Step3: Download any Valid version of ESF from the Official website.esforces

Step4: run the ESF ( I am using ESF 1.2.3) Installer. find the Directory on where you installed HALF-LIFE and select it. if the little 'Install' Button is greyed out then you haven't installed HALF-LIFE correctly. But if you have you will be able to install it

to everyone who is having troubles installing because of the button being grayed out.

If you just downloaded half-life 1 from the steam servers simply for this mod, make sure you run half-life 1 at least once, otherwise it will not set up the folders needed to install the mod. That was my problem, hopefully it works for you now.

lightningterror Jul 14 2010, 7:13pm replied:

Hah every game i use is pirated..i never buy them i download them from the net,dunno why some people say >in order to play esf you need steam and legal copy of half-life<,well i dont need both.But i know about those errors and i think this info that im gonna share could be of some help.

1.If you have cs 1.6,cs cz or w/e mostly when you try to run esf it gives a dll error.

2.In order to play with no dll error you need to download a different version of half-life,not half-life from the cs version

Here are all the download links required enjoy

Half-life +also included opposing force +blue shift

ESF 1.2.3

And btw i heard that some dont know about the esf addons so here


Big pack v8,4

>Be sure to install esf 1.2.3 first then ecx rc2 then big pack
and as a bonus if you like a PL changer
