Solution for error symbols and purple-black checkerboard. (legal)
Fist of all, the problem is you don't have the textures from Couter-Strike: Source. You can fix this by buying the game, but there is an easier solution for free. Here is a video I found on how to get all the textures and maps from Counter-Strike: Source. This should fix all your error symbols and purple-black checkerboard.

I already have the game, but the link does nothing, when I go to the site I get a bunch of spam but not the website itself.. I am afraid I can never play this :c

There's a CSS check box in game. click on the tab that look's like a game pad in the main menu, then look for the check box and click it. that it should fix it. (This only works if you have CSS installed of corse.)

Edit: If that didn't fix it you may need some other Source game, such as Half-life 2: episode 2.

First off, you need to buy CSS. When you load up Garys Mod and swap it to prop hunt it should downloan all of the CSS maps and items right away. As for Half-Life, when you join most servers, not all, the server will make you download half-life maps and items anyways so no need to buy Half-Life!
