Link to Source SDK Games is Broken

The link that shows a list of games which give the Source SDK is now broken, thanks to Steam... I'm trying to find how they changed it, but no luck so far. I need it for the Dystopia wiki page on installation myself.--Pyroguy 05:35, 26 May 2008 (PDT)

Click and Crash Bug

I ran across the click-and-crash bug in Hammer after the last SDK update. I'm using Windows XP (Home) and have the December 2005 DX SDK installed. I demonstrated (to myself, in any case) that switching between debug and retail versions of the d3d dlls relieves the problem. The "Enable Shader Debugging" option had no apparent effect. FYI, this was not an easy one to find.

I made an addition to the Hammer FAQ page for this problem.

I added the bug here because something like this must apparently be verified before being added to the Known Issues page. How does one get this "verified?" -- BJ



I am currently a student in Level Design at Cegep de Matane (Quebec, Canada) and today, following the update of SDK + HL2 I'm not able to run either. Here's the error message I get:: "MountFilesystem (236) failed: SteamMountFilesystem (2352,236,0 x11f8fc74 = 0x11f8fd74) failed with error 19: Internal Cache Error"

I hope my message will help you to find a solution quickly and expects from you.

Thank you. Seb

Try validating the files for the SDK and your game. The option is in their Properties. --TomEdwards 14:55, 30 Nov 2007 (PST)
I checked the entire two, but it seems to be a bug in the update created. I saw on the forum that many people are affected by the same problem as me. --Seb_the_french

What's the diff

Whats the difference between the Tools->Source SDK and Tools->Source SDK Base? Did I miss the discussion some where? Thanks.--JavaTexan 14:10, 18 Nov 2006 (PST)

The Source SDK is all the tools you need to do fancy things. Source SDK Base is the latestest shinest version of the engine, the engine all new mods are assigned to by defualt. you only need to the SDK to mod, but you only need the base to play new mods. If you wanna do both your gonna need both. --Angry Beaver 16:09, 18 Nov 2006 (PST)


I'm trying to install the SDK on my laptop to mod on the go, but the SDK refuses to launch in offline mode. Is there a hack to get around this?

Run it once online first, try everything and make sure its fully good to go. I always try that when offline modes complaining it an its always fixed it. --Angry Beaver 12:00, 20 Jun 2007 (PDT)
