  Steam Update 9/21 and Custom Content    
Posted By RosietheRiveter -  
**UPDATE**
Steam has "patched" the problem for custom map model files.
Still cant use the custom CAL xhairs or any custom weapon models but at least can still play on custom maps .
Steam Client Update Released

An update to the Steam client has just been released. Steam will update itself automatically when you restart. Here is a list of the changes:

STEAM CLIENT CHANGES / ADDITIONS:
* Fixed game launch problem caused by customized game content
Update: In order to expedite the fix for crashing caused by custom content, Steam is temporarily ignoring custom game content. The use of custom content will be re-enabled as soon as possible.

---------------------------------------------------
The problem appears to be related to the latest Steam Update and Custom content

A very quick and dirty fix is as follows:
Delete decals.wad file from dod folder
Delete CAL or any custom crosshair from sprites folder
Delete any custom weapon models.
Note: It has been reported that the v_*.mdl may still work and not p_*.mdl or w_*.mdl.

Rename custom Sprites, Sound and Sounds folders to *_custom.
Make new folders of the same names.
You should now be able to connect to stock maps

Reinstalled dod_railroad , its good (CAL map)
Reinstalled dod_diversion, also good (SLDL week 5)

Forum post on the Steam and DOD forums suggests the issue is limited to custom crosshairs and sounds .
It will take some experimenting to isolate the exact file(s)
