HL2: EP2 mods won't start. "Can't find background image materials/console/startup_loading.vtf"
Hi, i downloaded a mod called 'Cube' on desura, and, when i try to open the mod, it says:

Can't find background image materials/console/startup_loading.vtf

So, i read a few threads, and this was the only one who was so close, but, unfortunately, didn't work
http://steamcommunity.com/app/420/discussions/0/864971765497379056/

I can launch HL2: EP2 perfectly from desura and from steam, but, if i launch the mod, boom, error.

I'm running Windows 8 x64 if that helps.

Umm, why did you posted in the TF2 forums?
TF2 is not HL2:E2.

You're in the wrong place, son.

Imma just go ahead and say copy some .vtf somewhere and rename it to startup_loading.vtf .

I know one of my friends had this issue but I'm not sure how he fixed it.
