Everytime i start either Source Sdk 2006 or The Hidden Source beta 4b, they either load up and close, or crash to hl2.exe
i have reinstalled steam, and installed both the zip and exe versions of the hidden. I have validated the files, reinstalled video drivers and checked event logs which point to Source sdk base\hl2.exe crashing.

The only way i can get the game running partially is by using this as a shortcut
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 220 -game "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\hidden"

and when it loads all i can do is create a server and walk around, impulse 101 gives me hl2 weapons most of which are missing sounds.

Every other source game i have works apart from this one.
half life 2
half life 2 deathmatch
etc

does anyone have any other ideas?

Hidden:Source must be run on AppID 215
If you cannot run the Source SDK Base 2006 tech demo (steam://run/215) then you must contact Steam support as mentioned in the aptly titled stick at the top of this very forum..
