New to PC gaming. Trouble installing Nightmare House.
I just got the Orange box and wanted to install the nightmare house mod. I go to the read me file and it tells me how to install it but it's not very clear. I googled how to install it and I don't get anything. Can someone help me get this to work?

What error do you get? I haven't Half Life still, but I'm thinking to get the "Half-Life Complete" pack in the next days. So I'll try to install the mod and could say you how to install it. ;)

it says the map doesn't exist or is invalid. but sounds good!

I found this tip on the MoDB site for this game.

For people who are having problems, it installs to the wrong folder, go to steamapps/common/half-life 2/hl2 and copy the folder maps, then paste it into steamapps/(Username)/half-life 2/hl2.

Afterwards, open half-life 2 and open the console and type changelevel nightmare_house1.

The shortcut that is created is also broken, it can be fixed but its faster just to launch half-life 2 and load the map ingame.

I'm left with this error

CModelLoader::Map_IsValid: No such map 'maps/nightmare_house1.bsp'
changelevel failed: nightmare_house1 not found

For Mods, my favorite way is to download the Desura launcher. From there you can download mods for games such as Half-Life, EP1, EP2, Portal, etc with a simple click or two. Installing mods without it is harder than anything, IMO.
