Hey guys, so im making a map for cs go, my problem is with ambient_generic, i put it into the level, choose the sound i want it to play and nothing happens, i couldn't find information about this anywhere.

Do you want the sound to loop by itself, or do you want it to play only after a certain trigger was activated, or something else?
We need more info for that.

In the worst-case scenario, you can use a logic_timer, which will call the ambient_generic's PlaySound() function, every duration of the sound (e.g. every 5 seconds).
The ambient_generic's flags should be like this:

Play everywhere - up to you
Start Silent - check
Is not looped - check

Lastly, I'm not entirely sure about this one, but ambient_generic should only be able to playback mono sounds.

also double check your paths for the sound.

If you are adding a custom sound that you want to loop, you need to ensure that it also has cue points. These are embedded in the audio file itself. Same is true for Source so you can follow this guide:
