Successful CM 10.42 Install

Postby elauzel » 20 Jul 2010, 00:11

I successfully installed Cinematic Mod 10.42 with the latest steam updates as of 07/18/10 and am able to play. Here is exactly what I did in order:

NOTE: I Began *WITHOUT* Half-Life 2, Episode 1, or Episode 2 installed -at all-. While having played them on this machine before, I had completely uninstalled them and deleted all local content, including saves and configurations.

Step 01) Installed Half-Life 2, Episode 1, and Episode 2 via Orange Box DVDs.
Step 02) Allowed all three to *fully* update via Steam, connected online.
Step 03) Restarted Steam to make sure there were no more updates.
Step 04) I DID NOT BEGIN ANY NEW SAVE GAMES. They are UNPLAYED / LOCKED.
Step 05) Shut down steam.

Step 06) Installed Cinematic Mod 10 in the appropriate directory.
Step 07) Installed Cinematic Mod 10.42 Hotfix immediately afterward.
Step 08) Started Steam and attempted to play the game, but got the MountAppFileSystem() 420 error. I checked the forums, and proceeded to do this:
Step 09) Went to the Library > Tools section in Steam.
Step 10) Installed Source SDK, Source SDK Base 2006, and Source SDK Base 2007.

Step 11) Allowed all three to *fully* update via Steam, connected online.
Step 12) Started Source SDK once, let it run and copy files, and shut it down.
Step 13) Started Source SDK Base 2006 once, and let it do the same.
Step 14) Started Source SDK Base 2007 once, and let it do the same as well.
Step 15) Used shortcut provided by Cinematic Mod 10 to play the game!

Downloading them now, someone else posted a topic saying it worked so you never know, maybe valve created a fix for it this way.

If I am allowed to post screenshots of the mod (meaning, the mod creator is fine with me sharing such things) I can provide a link to the photobucket pro album I made, with 42 screenshots of the first chapter in the Cinematic Mod 10.42, all 1600x900. If anyone is interested, and can reply to this with an answer, I'll link it for people. I hope others can start getting it to work, because I can attest to the spectacular work the mod creator puts into this.

Works absolutely fine. (thumb_1) I'd already played them once and created saves so that bit doesn't make a difference.

yes it works, did the steps of creating saves in HL, HL ep 1 and HL ep2, then followed by installing and running sdk, sdk base 2006 and sdk 2007 , CM 10.42 worked after all of this.

I saw that Valve updated Half-Life 2, Episode 1 and Episode 2 today. Hopefully this doesn't interfere with anything. I haven't tried playing since I saw the update.
