Problem: NUM_FOR_EDICT: bad pointer
Solution: Install bin folder correctly and make sure you are launching CS:SO and not CS:S

Solution: Install bin folder correctly

Solution: Install bin folder correctly

Problem: Can't load corrupted map
Solution: Install bin folder correctly

Problem: Could not load library client
Solution: Either you are launching CS:S instead of CS:SO or you didn't install the bin folder correctly

Problem: CS:SO doesn't appear in my Steam library
Solution: Make sure that you are downloading a STANDALONE version OR installing a patch ON TOP OF PREVIOUS VERSION, and that you install CS:SO in your Steam folder even if you have a separate folder for Steam games

Problem: Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory 'csso'.
Solution: Download Standalone version of the mod and not Patch and make sure that you installed CS:SO in the right folder

Problem: Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory 'hl2'.
Solution: You're launching the game incorrectly or you have incorrect launch parameters

Problem: Server is enforcing simple material
Solution: Most likely you've got sv_enablemodelbounds set to 1. Set it to 0

Problem: Instead of proper text, I've got #Cstrike_blahblahblah lines
Solution: You didn't install the mod correctly or you are not playing on English, Russian or Simplified Chinese language

Problem: I have a lot of purple (missing) or bright white textures/reflections
Solution: mat_specular 0

Problem: My hands are invisible, player models are invisible or I have other graphical glitches regarding player models and arm models
Solution: v1.1 and above: the bug has been fixed; v1.0 and below: It's clearly stated what to do when you launch the game, but yeah, r_flashlightdepthtexture 0

Problem: The game crashes when I try to open server browser
Solution: Cope with it (cracked game won't show game servers either way) or buy Steam version of CS:S (yes, this isn't a mod bug, it's a bug with broken crack)

Problem: My game is stuck on map load
Solution: Your PC (or hard drive) is way too slow, keep waiting

I know why the flash back, because the source code is updated, all pirated CSS need new cracking files, steam need to verify the integrity of the game, this is the new cracking file I found on the Internet, I hope to help you. Link: pan.baidu.com/s/15okk0rjjx2wsmo8s-lbjlg code is: pjwj, this is a Chinese website, need to translate

Hi i have a problem
i installed everything properly
twice
i checked the installation.txt the video given with it all the instructions in /common-problems-and-solutions I installed everything u suggested
the game starts shows the old background (cs source not cs source offensive)
for a split second the quickly closes
i tried with compatibility but i don't think it's the problem bcuz css works fine
i rechecked the rev file
typed the ProcName from the installation manual downloaded and the one from the youtube video
neither of them changed anything
the file i downloaded is csso_release_1.1.rar
I have a cracked version i downloaded from steamunlocked (it has custom addons that help with servers and online play)
i noticed a suggestion do delete files from cstrike/addons
i did and it didn't help
i checked the log file and everytime i open it leaves something like this

2022/12/10 01:25:44 Startup
2022/12/10 01:25:48 Shutdown

and that's how a successfully opened game looks like in the log (css not csso)
