In the need of additional requirements which I already HAVE!
Today I wanted to play Downfall with a friend. But whenever I tried to join, it said, "Additional requirements: Downfall". I have downloaded that and the Support for Synergy. Also HL2, EP1 and 2. I have also checked for Bugs in the Library. What else can I do?

Do you have Downfall downloaded on the same hard drive as Synergy?

You can also try switching to the development branch of Synergy, start it up, then quit and reset to the current build.
Right click Synergy on Steam, click Properties, go to the Betas tab, and in the dropdown menu and you should see "development", select it and press ok. Then start up Synergy. Once it has finished loading, you can quit again and go back to Properties and reset to the current build.

What this will do is download the new workshop system which will fix a majority of workshop related addons.

So... we have installed them on the same hard drive, yes.

Starting in Beta Mode fixed it in some way: The Map was showing up. Starting a server didn't work that way as to a version mismatch. So we both started in Beta which only worked partially as we where somehow recognized as the same player (having the same amount of HP, one of us dying restarts the map and there where no additional cars spawning in). Before we did this, we did it the way you suggested and went to Beta, started it up, then shut it down and went back to normal. But going back to normal, didn't fix it, as the maps then weren't showing up again... so we're back at the beginning. Any more ideas?

SMALL EDIT: We just testet Precursor and that one works just fine and first try. Downfall still doesn't.

Are you using two separate accounts on online mode? I have seen errors like that when trying to use the same account, either both on offline or one online and one offline. It will require two accounts on online mode.

Another thing to try is running it on a dedicated server version and join it.

Yes sure, we where using two different accounts. His is the one that is not working. That's why it is so strange that these errors happened.
Running a dedicated one wouldn't work either as Downfall doesn't even show up for him, even when he tries to create a server. It's like Synergy absolutely doesn't recognize Downfall, except for it running in Beta mode.
When they start up Synergy, have them open their console (~ by default), you may have to enable it in advanced keyboard options in the menu. Then scroll all the way up to a section that starts with:
ContentLoader[SV]: Found SourceMod *
ContentLoader[SV]: Found game *
and see if it lists DownFall and possibly where it is trying to load other mods/games from.

We just checked it and Downfall doesn't appear anywhere in the console. What's being loaded is Precursor and all the installed Half Life Episodes we have. There are also many not loading things because we havn't installed them like TF2. Interestingly Downfall is never listed anywhere. Neither under the loaded ones nor under the not loaded ones.
Try moving the workshop files to your Synergy custom directory and check the console again.
Copy Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\17520\909637644
to: Steam\steamapps\common\Synergy\synergy\custom\909637644
If you don't know where these paths start, right click Synergy on Steam, go to Properties, then Local Files, and click Browse Local Content and it will put you in Steam\steamapps\common\Synergy then go up in folders to where you need to go.
