when i connect to some servers [SOME NOT ALL] at the end it closes up sven coop and get the error message:

"cannot open up something2.wad"

i couldnt remember what it said.

so i tried to open up the game again and it says:

hl.exe has caused an error in <unknown>

and it does that whenever i try to open a game until i restart my computer. any help?

and when this happens again i will tell you the wad file that was there.

Do you know what a wad file is if, so im done, here if not read this explanation:

Ok a .Wad file is the map textures so if you are trying to download a custom map off a server you will need the .wad . Sometimes the .wad downlaods off the serverother times it doesnt(depends on the map) . So you may need to get the wad files off somewhere to play the custom maps.

Or.. If you Downloaded the map from a site, and just though you'd get away fine with all files in the maps folder... I did once :D
