Ok, heres what I did.
I installed halflife, then the 1.1.1.0 patch.
It worked fine.
Put in fmod.dll thingy
The I tried to install steam - it gives me this error at the end (missing steam.dll)
Gives me the same error when I try to get into steam.
I installed ESF anyway, thinking that I could just play it from HL custom game.
At the end of ESF installation it says something like "missing 09907869697.dll"
Then theres no ESF .exe files, so I went into custom game, and opened ESF from there. The menu worked, and it looked like the game was gonna work but then in the loading screen it read
"WARNING: could not open sounds/trunks/pain1.wav"
this was repeated about 50 times, except with different players and sounds.

It then read "WARNING: ESF nOOb overload" or something.

then freezes.

What do I do? Ive reinstalled everything about 50 gazillion times, and I get nowhere. Maybe its just because steam doesnt work, but the ESF installation doesnt give me the option to install for WON.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHH HELP PLEASE!!!

Reinstall Steam?

Other then that I have no clue, you could delete your ESF folder THEN install it...not sure if thats worth trying though :/

yeah, um dude !
I think its bcoz u applied the fdll.. thingy! u should've not dun that!
Really? Oh ok, Ill get rid of it if nothing else works.

Ok, now ive gotten somewhere.
The error message that came up from the esf installation was "Could not execute the extended prog ESF\MP3\defpl.exe"

and "A required dll file, MSVBVM60.dll was not found."

So I figured that had something to do with the mp3s, so I installed ESF without mp3s and the installation worked.
HOWEVER because of that problem I have with steam, and because the ESF installation wont let me select WON, I cant play yet.

Maybe the steam problem has something to do with Ashampoo uninstaller.

BTW TaurenCheiftain, why do you say that about fmod.dll?

how to do that?
come on
just uninstall everything esf/hl/steam related
start/control panel/add/remove programs


then install steam,it'll update too
then double click hl, also let it update (righclick the icon,properties,always keep this game up to date)

then install esf (choose steam when asked)

then it should work
if you get the client dll thingy
put the fmod in your hl directory

Uninstall all your half-life software. (Make sure you delete the folders manually) Download steam again, pick Half-life in the steam menu (wait awhile for it to update). Hopefully you made an account with your email. Then Run half-life ONCE, when you leave the game you'll notice you'll have an added directory (Steamapps\Emailaddress\Half-life). THEN run the ESF installer (if the installer is giving you problems i suggest downloading from the oktagone mirrors). Install to half-life folder. Play ESF. Make sure fmod.dll is in your half-life folder. Make sure you have all your latest drivers, such as DirectX Video/Sound card. Chipset drivers too.
