Thanks for actually reading this.
Ok, before we begin, I have HL2: Deathmatch, Source SDK 06/07 and the mod itself. I've extracted the mod to the Sourcemods folder as well.
The game still won't appear in my Steam library though.
It may be the fact that I'm using Windows 8, but I'm just pretty sure that I missed something in the installation process.
Hoping to play soon,
-Phoenix

Windows 8 has been shown to be very unreliable playing any game at all. I would assume that your OS is the issue, but here are some questions:

Can you run Hidden?

If you cannot, please provide a screenshot of the error.

I can actually run the game.

It just won't actually appear on my Steam library.

Is your Hidden installed here? http://gyazo.com/166695a582afcc91446fbec9ee2aa5fc (Excluding the hard drive of course)

Yes...
Wait, is there a supposed to be a file called $_OUTDIR?

I don't have that file, and I wouldn't assume so. Try copying the files in your $_OUTDIR file and put them in the same place mine are.

The game has now appeared.
Thanks for the help!

The Hidden's skin is a checkered pattern, although I guess I can just get the patch for that or something...

you could try installing the server.zip file from the downloads section. Extract the hidden folder within to .../path/to/steam/steamapps/sourcemods/

That's the Dedicated Server download. right?
