  • HELP! I got new system, need to find CSS!!

    Hi Guys,
    I am on my new machine (sweeeeeeeet) and I am in the looong process of dloading CS:S, but, I had them put my old Hard Drive in my new computer along with the new Hard Drive, so, I see the files in my old HD like Steam, my user name, maps etc...
    So, do I need to now install CS:s again or can I just "find it" in the old HD and do some funky computer tech stuff to just have it back on my system faster?

    Well, get steam running in the background first of all. Just in case you have any issues your backup plan is in motion.

    I would just install Steam and then restore your old folders over your new install. Never tried it, but I would imagine it should work.
    Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.

      yah you can download steam, reinstall CSS thru your steam account. Then just copy over the maps and resources folders, i did that for my linux install and worked great
      that sounds like a good idea trooper.

        ok, I am doing that. i am installing CSS like it is for the first time, and I am already logged into Steam. Then, I willsimply transfer the files over.
        But, where do I "copy" them to? To which path? Thanks

          im guessing you did a standard install of steam so its :

          C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\schmidlin\counter-strike source\cstrike

          then just copy the maps models resources and materials folders over and you will be good to go
          that sounds like a good idea trooper.

            replace troopers folder name with your logon ID name.

                When I got my new computer and transfered data from harddrive to harddrive, I just moved the Valve folder over in its entirety, and most everything worked. I had to redownload a couple things, like CS:S, but otherwise it was a clean deal.
