    I have CS:S, HL2 Episode 2, TF2, and HL2, and i still get alot of 3-D error signs and pink and black checkerboard walls, and skyboxes that, when i look at them, like, do what IE error messages do when you move them around alot, and they make lots of copies of themselves. Hard to explain, but i need a fix for it because it kinda sucks to have to see the errors even though everyone on the server says that i need those games. Help please, and thanks in advance.

    Checkerboard's means many things, does the server have custom models? And did you check the "Game Content" section? It's in the Extensions menu.

    This.

    Checkerboard=Server has content, client doesn't
    Error messages=Mystery to me, really

    I think you need to enable them in the extensions like Greatie said.

    Not sure. If problems do persist, it's probably the server.

    Files verified, going to try 3 different servers to see if it is the server or me.

    Throwing this out, open the games once, you don't need to start mission, multiplayer, etc, just open it to the menu and it should work.

    Checkerboard = Missing Texture
    Big Error Signs = Missing Model

    OP, what map/server are you going to, it might need to download extra content from the website like GModTower does. Does this happen to most servers?

    This happens to near every server i go to. Most things people spawn on build servers are errors, and if it isn't flatgrass or construct, the walls are checkerboard. Ill check it out about the website thing, itd be a bit tedious to have to install a new pack for every server i went to.

    Best bet that you need Wiremod, go get it totally worth it and will most likely remove most errors on build servers
