I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I've followed the readme instructions. Using Winrar I try to extract to Local Disk/Program Files/Valve/Steam/SteamApps/c_munny (my user name) /half-life 2 deathmatch/hl2mp. When I open the hl2mp folder I see the mappack folder there, but when I go to play the game, I'm still downloading maps from the server. What the heck am I doing wrong? Please help!!!!!

Get the maps from the map pack folder and move them into the maps folder.

Ok..I admit to being an idiot.. I'm a long time hl player, noooob hl2 player So, do I unpack a .bsp directly into the maps folder like the old hl or do I have to make folders in there cause some maps come with a graphs folder (do I put this on the maps folder?) some maps come with a materials folder, etc..I guess these folders go into the maps folder as is? I just LOVED running around the old half life with my crowbar in my Oona skin smashing heads and assorted other things. But I just cant figure out how to open up the maps in this version. And I can;t wait for the crowbar to appear!! Any help would be GREAT!! thanks!! :naughty:

Thank you very much!! Been to your skin site, btw, and downloaded the alex skin. Since I have not played with maps yet, I have no idea if I can play using that skin or not. I love it!
