Did you get your copy of CS through a purchase of CZ? If so you can't play ESF.

OK here is what you can do.

Open the browse games menu in STEAM. Click on individual games and find HL1.

If it says "download and install now" than you can can play ESF. If it says "Click for purchase options" than you cant play ESF.


If you can you should download HL from STEAM and install ESf there. Although people say it works with CS to.

But my advise is to use HL ;)

Open the browse games menu in STEAM. Click on individual games and find HL1.
You found HL on your games list. He meant the 'browse games' list (there's a button). Once you get there you scroll down the list till you find half-life and click on it. Then a button should say either "Download and install now" or "Click for purchase options".
Hope I helped :) Welcome to the forums, and Pain told you not to double-post (posting twice without other ppl posting). Use your 'Edit' button.

its because steam extracts essential datas used by halflife mods from the halflife gcf files the first time youre running it, thus you need to start up hl at least once before you can run any mods.
