    I would imagine I'm not the first punter who has got this error when trying to play Half-Life or Counter Strike online.

    Host_Init: Couldn't load gfx/palette.Imp

    Now I'm assuming this is a video card related problem, but there again...shouldnt assume ANYTHING anymore.

    Anyone have any clues??
    Would certainly appreciate any help.


    Buggah, forgot to add the system specs

    AMD 1.2
    256 meg ram
    VOODOO 3 2000
    XP Pro

    Its due to a corrupt installation.

    Try the following steps:
    Uninstall the game
    Delete the remaining game folder
    Defragment your hard drive
    Press Ctrl + Alt + Del and shut down all programs on the list except Explorer and Systray
    Install and apply the game update (counterstrike)

    What other half life mods have you got installed ?

    well, I must admit i didnt think to try that...oddly enough cos I thought it was an XP Pro problem with an incompatability with either my vid card/driver or the game itself as I can play HL single or even on my lan with my lad, but cant seem to get online with HL , CS , or the mod I just D/L Opera (buggah, cos it LÖ¿ÖKS good).
    Thanks for the tip:D

    BTW....good thing I finished the game...would have been a serious pity to have to uninstall before the end. :rolleyes:
