Okay, i downloaded CS 1.6 V40, it worked for a while, but now when ei try to launch the game, i get an error which says Error 5899: Metadata file missing or damaged [-1]!!!
The error pops up after about two seconds from launching. I tried to fix it with RegCure but didn't work. I don't know what is wrong so could anyone help me solving this problem, please.
It's a video problem.
You know the Half Life one it came with it? Open it up and set it to a lower setting, then open CS 1.6. Then you can play around with the settings to see what works.
Another solution is checking to see if your video card is up to date. Get updates from Nvidia or ATI. But remember to remove the old drivers after, because it will cause performance problems. Remove it by getting Driver Sweeper.
And if all else fails, right click CS 1.6, click properties, and in target add -dxlevel 70, and run the game.
