Final call to arms against Article 13

Article 13 is almost a fact of life. Let's not allow it to pass. Take action now and ensure that sites like SFMLab continue to exist. This legislation could hurt the internet. Big time. Make this the universe where we ensure the enduring freedom and openness of the internet. Let us protect our digital rights.

Visit and contact your representatives; EU elections are coming up. If they don't vote the way you want: make sure they lose their positions in the coming elections.

[]( This is an accurate physical effect, ...less accurate because it's a (old) game engine. Not sure how to change it but if you want to change this behavior you might have a look here and find which files are concerned by this texture :

I don´t know why but the files are corrupted for me sorry for the bad english

They should be ok, it worked for a lot of people a nothing changed since. Try to download them once again, maybe something goes wrong when downloading, also try to switch from EU/US/US.

Be nice if I could actually figure out how to install these maps. Or better yet if they were packaged more simply.

No offense, but adding the "dear Esther" to the gameconfig only prevented SFM to load, so I had to revert. Someone needs to make a real guide.

Video link error?

JavierTheOne posted 4 months, 2 weeks ago

i dont know if its sfm fucking with me or your maps, but whenever i try to render video using your maps, its corrupted... like - the video is supposed to be 1min long but the rendered one is about 5-6 min long for example... And the rendering doesnt take any extra time, so im realy confused. Any help or explanation would be cool , thank you

Still an issue, the config file doesn't work for crap and crashes SFM.
