Recently, I went to play with friends when my game failed to authorize. Not a problem, so I thought. I relaunched the game and still couldn't join. I decided to revalidate my game files, as I was told that could be the problem. When I went to relaunch the game, It couldn't find the executable. I didn't do much after that. The next day (today) I went to play and it still wasn't working. I went to the sourcemods folder in my steam folder and the entirety of the hidden was gone. All the files. I tried to reinstall it but the installer just kept skipping everything. It isn't in my recycling bin or anything. Any advice is better than no advice. Thanks!

Try renaming your sourcemods folder to something else like sourcemodsBAK and install Hidden again.
Also check if Source SDK Base is installed in /SteamApps/common/. Check if it has its executable. If not, go to Steam > Tools and revalidate Source SDK Base 2006.
