You will get an error at first though, complaining that something went wrong, which is due to the deleted files.

On a side note, for some reason CS is always installed as well.

Uh oh, so it’s been a while since I last updated my BIOS.

Of course, updating the BIOS is always risky business, but the chance that there’s an energy outage while you are updating your BIOS is ridiculous low. Before you update your BIOS you should ask yourself, is it really necessary, do I really have to update my BIOS?

When trying to download a HL1 mod like TFC, initially it only downloads the engine files of the HLDS, but not the mod.

This happens with both the regular version and the beta.If you happen to use a ASUS motherboard, head over to and select your model.I tried searching for my model, but apparently the search tool that ASUS provides is not capable of finding anything.The Steam Console Client or Steam CMD is a command-line version of the Steam client.Its primary use is to install and update various dedicated servers available on Steam using a command-line interface.Looks like it’s too complicated to do a simple %LIKE% SQL query. Lucky for us, ASUS makes it very easy to update the BIOS. This can be different for your motherboard type, so I would suggest reading the manual if DEL does not work.
