have you tried looking for any background programs running try getting some adware removing stuff or you can do it manually by going through your processors and also you should try and restart your comp :p

http://esf-world.com/download.php?file_id=577 this is where I got my ESF game it takes 5 hours but its worth it

i have tried many different servers but none work. but i think it's the installation problem. you see, my ESF doesn't have it dragonball wallpaper when i launch the game. it's gordon freemen wallpaper. i'm using stream. so how do you guys install this esf properly? i think i need to redownload the ESF copy. anyone knows where to get the software? i mean the full game not patch.

Thanks in Advance

This sounds like a DirectX problem.. Download the newest version and try again.


(the link is to directx 9.0c)

hi pple, i tried chickenman's website and downloaded the full client and now, my ESF is able to run(with the background picture and MP3) but now, there is a problem agian. i couldn't join any server. it says "your .dll [cl_dlls\client.dll] differs from the server's" i tried joining other servers but none work. i could create a game and play with bots but unable to join other's server. anyone knows the problem?

Tried seeing if any steam upgrades exist If not, try reinstalling Steam. Client.dll is a steam file, I think. Either that, or your ESF version is out of date. No idea really.

Chickenman lied to me! he sayd 5h but it took 2h to me :laff:
