Everytime i Install.....everything works fine the first time. then after a while i will try to start up the game....and it goes to the half life screen....not the one with vegeta and piccolo. and then when i play, i have nothing on screen to help me out. No HUD whatsoever. no attack....no scouter.....no health.

Did you install ESF to your Half-Life directory?

Did you install ESF to it's own folder within the Half-Life directory?

Alright. In the Steam games list, do you click on "Earth's Special Forces" to start ESF up?

Are you using the 1.2.3 full installer?. Did you play half-life once before isntalling esf (by playying, I mean walknig around in the training room for 10seconds and then exiting half-life).

yes im using that installer.

you have to play half life in order for it to be able to install......and yes i have played online plenty of times.

my game still works and everything. i justcan see how much ki i have......or how much i need to charge an attack......or anything except the actual game world and players.

Not entirely true, you can just launch half-life, go into the hl menu and just exit and the installer will install it. The reason I suggested you did that is because half-life creates files nessacary for mods if you have played it before (assuming you didn't play half-life even once before install).

What Graphics mode are you using?.

Switch from D3D or Software to OpenGL, if you can. Also, posting a screenshot of your problems never hurts.

Joining an EVM server without the proper files can cause problems with ESF.

yeah....but i rarely ever play online

my problem exists even when i just play against bots....or just all by myself with no1.

i once started to join a server....and realised it was a mod. then i quit while it was joining and played in a normal server.

the problem always seems to come when i turn off the computer.

im thinking about reinstalling and if it breaks again....whatever. the game gets boring anyway.

*****oh yes and thank you very much to everyone who has tried to help, or who may help in the future. I appreciate it."

Just reinstall it. Regardless of you not playing online, the files you accidently downloaded from an EVM server can still cause problems with ESF.
