I've uploaded two new things to the download site. The first is a fully patched version of Korsakovia, so this is the one to grab if you don't already have the mod. Do the normal unzipping thing into your SourceMods folder.

The second is the patch itself, which you can apply to existing downloads of Korsakovia. It's a much smaller download, so opt for that if you have already grabbed the game once.

Thanks to everyone who mailed in suggestions and support - it's really appreciated, and hopefully we'll be announcing a new project soon.

I have found a potential fix for those that crash on startup even after a patch.

Simply delete or rename the background maps, and the mod should load half-life 2 backgrounds, while the game itself can be played by selecting chapters. (And for some reason, the backgrounds can be played individually via console commands :/ )

Strange, but it works for me :)

Hey, people. I'm making a playthrough (with no commentary) of Korsakovia. It includescaptions for people to know what the characters say. Here's the link:

Before you vote this down (because I know you will), I'm telling you that I do not plan to make this to get some youtube fame. It's just to show people how great this mod is. I'll see when I upload part 2. See ya!

Hey. I came up with a fixed "gameinfo.txt" that should work for everyone. I haven't had any bugs so far, so please try it out.

Just download and replace the file in the mod's folder.

Also, for any other mods you might want to fix, be sure to check my thread

I can confirm that this gameinfo text gets the mod working perfectly (apart from that pesky checker texture at the loading screen) and is much more stable than the text I referenced in my link below.
Thank you, PHCG, for finding the best solution so far. If his fix worked for you, guys, give him some karma. He fixed something we've all been dying to play for quite a while.

Thanks to SkyNinja and Mr. Grindor for finding a temporary fix. I stumbled across this forum post: "" and it did the trick.
It's a modification of the .gameinfo text document in Kskv. game foler. Just copy and paste the code for the Episode 2 fix, restart Steam, and it should be all set.
Gameplay is perfect, no crash errors so far (knock on wood). The only trouble I've had so far is that instead of a background image for the game menu, a pink & black texture shows up. So if you start it and see a p&b screen, don't panic and just give it some time. The game menu will appear.

Thanks for finding this. It finally appears in my Steam library with the icon and all, but once it starts loading the actual game, it crashes on me. :(

Still, this is more progress than I have made so far.

Now I have gotten it to work, but majority of the textures are missing, rendering it unplayable.

Well I'm glad it at least helped a little, even if it's not the final step to success. Sorry bout the texture stuff.
I'm going to backup my current Kskva folder (the one I know works) then delete it from my Sourcemods list and start the whole install process from scratch. I'll see if I can replicate your problem.
It is entirely possible that I have forgotten a step and didn't include it in my first post. I'll update with results.

Yeah, no I can't seem to duplicate your issue. I just applied the gameinfo scripts and it started up fine. But the title screen is still p&b.

Strange. Anyways, the only thing you have to do is to go to the mod folder, find the gameinfo.txt and edit the following:


Edit it so it says:

AdditionalContentID 420

Thechineseroom, I DEMAND that this mod goes on Steam for free!! Maybe that would solve the main trouble that this mod has; Being unplayable.
