ERROR in CS 1.6 : "Couldn't find 'decals.wad' in DEFAULTGAME search path."


Sometimes playing on servers that changes your files and next time you start your game you end-up into an error "Couldn't find 'decals.wad' in DEFAULTGAME search path."

So always play on a secure and good server which do not modify your content or just make all your files in "cstrike" folder as read only mode.

decals.wad missing


This is a very common error that occurs if "decals.wad" file is missing.
There are many chances that this file is found missing but the solution is simple, just follow following steps:




  • Download this file below:
  • Download Decals.wad here :  "Download"
    • Copy it into your cstrike folder.
    For STEAM: C:/ProgramFiles/Steam/Steamapps/common/HalfLife/cstrike.
    For Non STEAM: C:/ProgramFiles/Valve/Counter-strike/cstrike

    Restart your CS and your problem is solved.

I see that problem for the first time, you surprised me. The only issue I got with cs:go was missing d3dx9_43.dll file which was easy to find at http://fix4dll.com/d3dx9_43_dll. I've just put it in game library and so far it works fine.
