    Hi, new to this forum and Half Life 2.

    I just got Half Life 2 but cant play it yet as I have a problem...
    I get this error while trying to run HL2.exe

    Can't find background image 'materials/console/background01.vtf'

    Yes I have checked the directory and I did find the background01.vtf file.

    The thing I'm a bit iffy on is the forward slashes. Arent they supposed to be like this "\"

    Thanks for any help :cheese: :bounce:

    I have now copied some folders, and it says:

    Invalid or corupt background picture materials/console/background01.vtf

    instead of:

    Can't find background image 'materials/console/background01.vtf'
