if it's the retail version of CS then yes (since CS retail comes with Half-life), if it CS:CZ and CSS then no

Jessivea, please take a look at this FAQ.

Should you have anymore questions after reading the FAQ, please post here again (once will suffice).

I'm not sure of the specifics, but if you can run Half-Life (or Counter-Strike), you should be good to go for ESF.

That FAQ, if you actually read through it, should have answered your question.

Try running Half-Life once before you play, as stated in the FAQ.

What I would recommend you do is:

Uninstall ESF.
Run Half-Life.
Install the latest version of ESF (1.2.3)
Run Half-Life again.
Start up ESF and enjoy.

That should cover both problems you've brought up in this thread.

Ok, what you need to do is listen to people's answers. I'm going to give you a quick run down of what you need to do.

Since you're using steam, here's what to do.

Delete your ESF folder entirely. It should be found in C:\program files\valve\steam\SteamApps\youraccount@email\half-life\

So delete the folder called ESF. Then run half-life. Just execute from the steam menu, and then exit once it loads. Then reinstall ESF 1.2 (Main installer) and 1.2.1 (Patch), 1.2.2 (Patch), and 1.2.3 (patch). So that's 1 main installer (the big file) and 3 smaller patches. Once you've done this, everything SHOULD work fine. If not, then put the fmod.dll file in the ESF directory from the link above and Please, read the FAQ that was posted.

Do all of this BEFORE you ask ANY other question, understand? No more questions until you've done what I've told you to do.

*edit* here's 2 links for a full installer. Shouldn't need the patches with this.

http://esf-world.com/main.php?content=fileinfo&file_id=25320 and http://halflife2.filefront.com/file/Earth_Special_Forces_V123_Full_Installer;38840
