i have restarted steam i have played HL2DM and its the same error as usual
is it maybe becuase i have not bought HL2DM? i got it for free because i have an ATI Radeon (maybe you have heared about this event)

Same problem for me. I tried what Paegus suggested but same problem. Ive run HL2DM before as well but I havent actually joined a server or anything with the game.

if you have hl2mp then you need to read the "running hidden on hl2mp" thread floating around in close proximity to this thread.

it's just a matter of replacing 215 with 320 though...
