How to Obtain & Install CS:S(Counter Strike Source) Textures Onto Garry's Mod





Introduction: How to Obtain & Install CS:S(Counter Strike Source) Textures Onto Garry's Mod

Using a simple server updater we can install Counter Strike Source Textures onto Garry's Mod.

Step 1: Step 1: Obtain Steam CMD

Download Here

Un-Zip the file into a brand new folder

Step 2: Step 2: Run SteamCMD and Update

Double Click the SteamCMD.exe program that you unzipped into the new folder. It should start to update. New files will appear in your folder so don't freak out if that happens.

Step 3: Step 3: Download an Auto Loader

Download Here

Place in the folder that has everything else in it. Run it after everything has updated. IT WILL TAKE AWHILE.

Step 4: Step 4: Install the Textures

Make a new folder, Name it "CSS - Content." Go back to the folder that you placed the SteamCMD.exe program in. Open the "css" folder. Open the "cstrike" folder. Drag the "maps" folder and all of the "cstrike_pak###.vpk" files into your newly created "CSS - Content" folder. Then finally drag your "CSS - Content" folder into either

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\garrysmod\garrysmod\addons\


C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\\garrysmod\garrysmod\addons\

Step 5: Step 5: Download Vpk.exe and Unpack .vpk Files

Download it Here

Drag your .vpk files, one at a time, onto the vpk.exe program. They should unpack into a "cstrike_pak_dir" folder. Open that folder once your done unpacking all of your .vpk files, Only extract the folders within the "cstrike_pak_dir" folder to your "CSS - Content" folder. Delete the "cstrike_pak_dir" and your done. It should come out to look like the picture.

If you opened the application without moving it, how do you re-do it?

Or do you just keep going?

Also If you don't want the ads with the links above (they sometimes have viruses), you can get the GMOD Textures+video tutorial here,

site: gmod textures fix

An easy way to do it is but cs source copy the texture files from the game then import them into the gmod add ons folder

When I try to install the vpk.exe, it says, "The program can't start because vstdlib.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem." Where can the vstdlib.dll be found?

It now works, but, it does nothing. I can't get my CSS - Content folder to look like that.

Basically, Step 5 doesn't make any sense to me

As Step 5 don't worry about downloading the vpk.exe. There is one already (and this one detects the tier0.dll file in the same folder) It is in

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\bin

Just use that one and it should work fine.

Thank you very much, you helped me too, just a correction if anyone is confused like i was, C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\bin

You have no idea how much this helped me! Just a reminder por everyone, drag only the cstrike_pak_dir.vpk file directly to the vpk.exe in the path showed above. Do not copy the vpk.exe to another folder, as it will not work!

the folder that is suppose to show up,where is it located,i dragged the vpk files to the software,but it just opens commandprompt then closes.
