An extremely challenging mod which forces players to think outside of the box... in order to get out of the box. Each room is a unique puzzle, and is always full of surprises. Not for players who aren't up for an intense, claustrophobic experience.

There has been a lot going on behind the scenes for Escape the Room. Many more levels, and puzzles have been constructed. The final stages are upon us.

I HAVE FOUND A SOLUTION TO FIXING THIS MOD!
I've been recently mucking around and found two websites (which were not created by me, all credit to them) you might want to go to, to fix this mod manually, if you don't want to wait for the creator to put up a patch (which I honestly think he won't since he hasn't been active since 2010).

Lambdageneration.com
Github.com

What these two websites say to do (and to dumb it down for you in steps) is to:

(note that I will assume you have steam)
1. install your mod normally (I don't think I need to explain that for you)

2. locate the gameinfo text document in the mod's file

3. locate the word "SearchPaths" (without the quotation marks, of course)

4. copy the lines of code in Lambdageneration.com where it says "for half life 2 episode 2" and paste them where you located the word "SearchPaths"

5. Run the game normally. If it does not work then restart steam ( assuming you have steam) and then run the game again

6. your game will crash and you will receive the following error "41/monitor_breencast_jumbotron2 - func_monitor: UTIL_SetModel: not precached: *2". don't worry, that's supposed to happen. If you didn't get the error and i started up perfectly, then skip all these steps because you are done and don't need the rest of these steps.

7. go back into the mod's folder and go into maps (Program Files x86/ steam/steamapps/sourcemods/ermod/maps)

8. locate the file "background01.bsp"

9. rename the file to "background02.bsp

10. follow step 5. If this actually helped you, then the game should work, based on my experience with it.

I tried to fix it with an alternate gameinfo.txt, and while it'll load, I still get the error:

41/monitor_breencast_jumbotron2 - func_monitor: UTIL_SetModel: not precached: *2

Dunno what do, but I guess we can chalk it up to yet another of the thousands of mods killed by random Valve updates.
