Client Troubleshooting

Preload Installer claims "This content is not available yet"

The installer failed to contact our servers to get the encryption key, so it thinks the game isn't out yet. You will need to launch it manually with the parameter:

–encryption-key=eb1347bc4da3d681b178b8e76e2d53e9002fea70cb87c2b6b8186cc7c53c14f03a976a4e9768d38fa8484c11ea7add2b

You can do this with the command line, or by making a shortcut and adding the parameter to the end of what's in the target field. For example:

GoldenEye_Source_v5.0_preload_full.exe –encryption-key=eb1347bc4da3d681b178b8e76e2d53e9002fea70cb87c2b6b8186cc7c53c14f03a976a4e9768d38fa8484c11ea7add2b

NSIS error

7-Zip: CRC Error

Still having issues with the installer?

Download the client zip from one of the links here, and then put the gesource folder in Steam/steamapps/sourcemods. Note that you can only install Source mods to your main Steam library (under the location which Steam itself is installed).

Failed to load library client

This indicates that the .dll files for GoldenEye: Source are corrupt or missing. Download and reinstall GoldenEye: Source.
