i am receiving a error: couldn't load library esf/cl_dlls/client.dll

can someone tell me how esf could be played without steam cause i can remember that in the past i'd played this game before and then the error occured but someone told me to copy the client.dll and paste it somewhere in another map, so i'd like to it that way because steam doesn't register my cd-key while half life accepts it :s

so ?

Solution = buy the game.

Steam will not reject a valid key.

If it really won't take your valid key, bring it up over at the Steam forums because we can't do anything about it here.

So, yes, you do need Steam, and Half-Life 1.

how do you mean buy the game
why assume i don't have it "genius"
the problem is it says it is already in use....so duplicate...why ? i don't know
and esf works now and it doesn't give the error i asked about earlier today
but now when i try to play multiplayer it says no valid key while i can play half life with my key

so?

You must register your HL cd-key with Steam. If yours is a duplicate copy thats probably why it wont work. That means you are using someone elses cd-key "genius" bam!

It could also mean someone else is using "his" key.

Contact steam to get your cd-key back, there's nothing we can do here.

Yes but its unlikely that some one else got his cd key unless he told someone or bought the game used. It's only 20 bucks for a new game so just get a new one then use its cd key and you should be able to play. I went out and bought a new game just for esf ive never even played HL. 20 bucks = not that much for a good game

"the esf blabla is executable out of date......now we will search a update"

No, he can't. To do so would bypass having to buy the games ESF runs on and is considered warez.

Actualy if you try to run ESF 1.2.3 with WON you have a 90% chance of it not working XD

Best thing to do is get STEAM

Not true, ESF 1.2.3 is and always has been compatible with WON.

That is a flat out lie. If you continue to spread false information you will be warned.

Correction ESF WAS compatible with WON up till 1.1

1.2 has a full STEAM only compatibility. Shure you can get it to run but you have to be very luckey and even if it works you have lots of bugs.

Client.dll errors mean you arent using the right version.
http://forum.esforces.com/showthread.php?t=58675

Also bear in mind that these boards are English only boards, if you must use another language, you must provide a translation. A handy site for this is http://www.worldlingo.com/en/products_services/worldlingo_translator.html. It's not entirely accurate but it gets the point across.

As well, please do not revive dead threads.

Cliente.los errores del DLL le significan arent con la versión derecha.

También considere que estos tableros son solamente tableros ingleses, si usted debe utilizar otra lengua, usted debe proporcionar una traducción. Un sitio práctico para esto es http://www.worldlingo.com/en/products_services/worldlingo_translator.html. No es enteramente exacto sino que consigue el punto a través.

También, no restablezca por favor absolutamente los hilos de rosca.
