I managed to get sourcemods working years ago for Left 4 Dead 2 and trying to install them again seems to be pure disaster. I've done everything tutorials ask for and yet it seems I can't get the mods working correctly.
-I downloaded sourcemod 1.5.0 for windows
-I downloaded mmsource 1.9.0 for windows
-the contents have been merged into my directory
-metamod.vdf is moved into the add-ons folder
-removed all the previous plugins I had
-incorporated my steam ID into "admins_simple"
All of these procedures were added and according to most videos, the console commands included "sm" and "meta". Typing these into my console, I get nothing. So I decided I need to change the launch options to "-insecure"
After typing this into the launch options, I try to make a new game, singleplayer, local server, anything, and the loading screen instantly freezes near the end of the loading bar. I have to ctrl+alt+delete every time this happens.
What am I doing wrong?
