I'm having the same problem

I've tried re-installing the mod and still the same thing, I'll try downloading the patch and try that way (even though the download I was using was version 1.0.2), maybe something got missed from the planetphillip download


This won't be much help but I now know the reason for the error.

Yet again Valve decides to screw the mod community by releasing an update that changes the SDK and Source SDK 2007 code when they upgraded EP2 to the Source 2009 code. Unfortunately there doesn't appear to a work around at the moment and a fix probably won't arrive until 2012 (Valve time)

Hey, thanks for the info. Here's a possible fix. Hlssmod.net

I am using 218 insteas of 420 as the SteamAppId, and I am mounting the 420 (EP2 stuff) instead.

I have also updated some of the maps a bit, so I will have to play it through before I will post it. I am going to test it properly today.

not sure if he meant reinstalling the patch, the whole mod, or what, though.

I've been so busy with work this month that I haven't had time to properly check this yet. I will try to check it out when I get home today.

Any fixes to this yet?

Sorry not yet. Trying to figure out, but as I don't get the same bug myself.

Maybe an entirely new version is the only way...But that sounds like a last measure...
