I'm playing old counter strike demos (1.5/1.6) on my steam copy of CS 1.6 using the compLexity player. Everything works nicely, except for the fact that the sound of the players speaking on the HL chat is not making any sounds. There are a few posts on this here: https://code.google.com/p/coldemoplayer/issues/detail?id=23, I wondered if anyone else got the in-voice sound working, and if so how?
Update 1: I maybe should have noted, I do not believe the issue is that of compLexity player, also noted by @Nitro.de, as is outlined in the above issue I posted. The fix I am looking for should be related to 1.6. I'd rather not torrent an old CS 1.6 to get things working, but use the steam version if possible.
Update 2: If I record a CS 1.6 demo using my current steam version and someone is speaking in-game, the voice works perfectly fine when using
playdemo (and also using coLplayer).
playdemo does not work for my older demos. I get a range of errors when doing so, most likely the formatting of the files - as noted by @Nitro.de, but work perfectly when executed from colPlayer.
I give a few examples of the errors when using
playdemo, but don't want to spam the question.
One error when running a CS 1.6 POV demo
ERROR: couldn't open custom.hpk Example error: Host_Error: CL_Parse_version: Server is protocol 2071657808 instead of 48
Another running a CS 1.6 POV demo
WARNING! demo protocol outdated. Demo file protocols 47:5, Engine protocol is at 48:5 BUILD 2693 SERVER (0CRC) Server #4 Example error: Host_Error: CL_Parse_version: Server is protocol 2071657808 instead of 48
Again a CS 1.6 demo:
Cannot continue without model sprites/bottom.spr, disconnecting.
