Hi guys! I know that many steam players do not see avatars of a friend in a game. Now I will tell you three solutions to this misunderstanding =)). 1. Possibly disabled option in the friends & chat. You need to call the friends chat ("+" in the lower right corner) - settings and enable the "Sign in to friends when Steam Client starts" option. 2. Firewall steamwebhelper.exe I hate this file but this reptile is responsible for the profile view in the client itself. Check your firewall settings on this file. 3. client.dll The most common solution. This file (library) lives here: root\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Half-Life\cstrike\cl_dlls\ So it draws avatars. But unfortunately the original file does not work at 640x480 / 800x600 / 1024x768 resolutions. Here you can take mine (http://www.mediafire.com/file/gppxp7jdx3ca7zd/client.dll/file). When updating, steam will return its original file. Also sure you know that in case of problems with the game (files are deleted, files are broken) you can restore everything, steam will scan the system (game) and fix problems (add files and repair broken ones) in this case client.dll will become original too. steam / library call the context menu on the counter-strike properties / local files / verify integrity of game files. Thank you for your attention and nice game !!!
