  1. No download-link and probably a problem with the description…

  2. Just started playing this mod today. In level warcrimes3, right after seeing the dead soldier with invisibility armore, down some steps into a rm. w/about 3 soldiers at the bottom and 1-2 behind a glass rm. above. After defeating all you long-jump from top of staires to this glass rm. and out the door. A long hallway ahead ( now the good part), halfway down the hallway another map attempts to load then crashes to desktop. The (FATAL ERROR: couldn’t open desnow.wad) message apears. Anyone have a solution?

  3. I have the same problem as david4255; get 1/2 way down the hall, new map attempts to load then crashes with Warning: couldn’t open valve\desnow.wad.
    Checked out my “valve” folder, and the wad doesn’t exist. So I googled desnow.wad. I downloaded it from http://www.cstrike-planet.com/wads/181, extracted it into my “valve” folder and reloaded the game. I get to the same spot where a new map attempts to load, and the game crashes with Warning:oculdn’t open valve\robo.wad. I haven’t been able to find any info on this one.
    I am so sick of getting part way through a mod,only to have it crash, as well as the countless hours spent “trying” to find an answer to the problem, to no avail. Another one meets ereaser.exe! Yet another DISAPPOINTMENT!

  4. Sorry I cant help ya but if I do find the file I’ll ask Phillip if he can make a repack with the wads included.

  5. Well rc1299, I tried your suggestion except I placed the desnow.wad in the WarCrimes mod folder, did a reboot then recieved (at the same spot) couldn’t open robo.wad. I agree with you. I would think the mod/map developers, novice or not, would find these problems and correct them during the BETA TEST phase befor release. I don’t know diddly squat about mapping or any related toppics so anyone feel free to correct me. Deletesville for me.

    I found something that seems to work –I found the file desnow.wad by google and put it in the ..steamapps\\half-life\warcrimes folder. I then made a copy of the file wc.wad that’s already in this folder and renamed it robo.wad. This allowed the next map to load and so far all is working well.

    A CLARIFICATION OF MY POST ABOVE — rename the COPY of wc.wad to robo.wad. Now you will have a wc.wad and a robo.wad file in the directory even though they are both actually the wc.wad file.

    Hope this helps.
