Recently I have been trying to install Half-Life and Counter-Strike 1.5 to play with the podbots offline. I have installed Half-Life and it runs fine, but when I install Counter-Strike 1.5 and click the icon it says there is a missing shortcut. I assume that I'm supposed to open Counter-Strike with Half-Life since CS is a mod for HL, but then when I browse for the program to open CS with and click HL, the CS icon turns into the HL icon and when I open it it just turns into HL.

Please help me out guys, I've been trying for ages and I'm going crazy trying to fix it.

This might be a crazy, crazy notion, but have you tried asking a half life / cs / gaming forum?

I remember my first erection. I went to my dad and was like "Do I have Aids???". I seriously thought there was something wrong with me.

you have to make a shortcut to hl.exe or whatever then after that in the shortcut target path you need to leave something like EDIT: -game cstrike

i'll be able to make a pic or two if you dont get what im saying, i could be wrong though if its different from 1.5 to 1.6

Okay, I've made the shortcut to hl.exe but when I try to change the name in the shortcut target path it says: "The name (insert whatever I rename the shortcut target path here) specified in the Target Box is not valid. Make sure the path and file name are correct."

Okay, I'll try that. Thanks for the help. I think that maybe the problem with it is that I'm trying to play CS but first I need a 1.1.0.1 patch or something like that for Half-Life, that's what some people were saying on some CS forums I went to. But when I try to install that patch, it says I have to install the patch in the original Half-Life.exe folder, I don't know how to do this though because when I click download the patch and it asks me where I want to save it, the Half-Life folder doesn't appear as a location where I can save the patch.

Man, this is frustrating the hell out of me. Thanks for being patient with me (I know I'm a noob lol) and for your help dude, it means alot.
