    How to get CSS Textures and/or Maps for Free.

    Follow this method if you want to get rid of all these error signs, pink walls and missing textures (and much more). In this method you'll be able to download CSS Maps as well.
    You'll need a program to extract the content to their respecting folders since they'll be in a .rar file.
    I use WinRAR:
    http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm

    Where to find the content (CSS Textures, Maps and other games)
    http://kajar9.wix.com/cscheater2/#!downloads/chgd

    I used the MEGA buttons since they're usually faster and more reliable than others. What you'll need is the first button: "Game Content" and if you want the maps, it's the second button. Let it download and read below to know where to extract it.


    Windows:


    After you're done downloading you'll see this pop up
    [​IMG]

    You'll need to click once on the folder so it's highlighted then you'll need to click on the button "Extract To". Now you can extract it anywhere but the easiest spot is on the Desktop for now.

    You'll then click on the Start menu > Computer > C:// Drive > Program Files (x86) > Steam > SteamApps > common > GarrysMod > garrysmod > addons
    You'll have to drag the folder that you copied onto to your desktop and copy it in the addons folder. Now you're pretty much done.
    If you did download the CSS Maps as well you'll have to do all these steps again except you won't copy the maps in the addons folder but instead in the maps folder.



    Mac / OSX


    Please download WinRAR and the CSS Content and then copy the whole folder onto your desktop like I showed above.

    Follow these steps to access the Steam folder:

    Open Finder > At the top press on Go and then Hold the Alt/option key. A folder will pop up in the list called "Library", click on it.
    Then follow these paths: Application Support > Steam > SteamApps > common > GarrysMod > garrysmod > addons


    You'll have to drag the folder that you copied onto to your desktop and copy it in the addons folder. Now you're pretty much done.
    If you did download the CSS Maps aswell you'll have to do all these steps again except you won't copy the maps in the addons folder but instead in the maps folder.


    You can use this method to install all the different games content found on the website. By downloading this, you won't be able to play the full games. This method is to save you money so you don't need to buy the required games to fix the texture errors.

    You can also use different softwares to extract the .rar files, I'm just used to using WinRAR

    If you have any questions or issues with this let me know via PM or comment here.

    Easy, don't use a mac. Honestly you have to get someone to put it on a jumpdrive, move it to your pc then put it in the right spot, only way it'll work, or get CSS

    A good free alternative to WinRar is 7zip. Also a pretty good video tutorial for this can be found at

    I have the css textures, but I believe that some of the maps use some textures from other sources, I"m jsut not sure where. It's no big deal, thanks for the help :)

    Any idea where I can find glass textures? It gets annoying when the glass is invisible... I had them for a little while but now they're gone out of nowhere :|
