    Steam:

    This bug seems to be a common problem and the last thread has broken download links and no install instructions so I'm leaving this here for linking convenience

    If you're getting invisible boss models in Vs. Saxton Hale these fixes have worked for most people who try it

    Reconnect/record a demo

    Sometimes players/hales will become invisible temporarily due to a client side bug. Reconnecting or recording a demo should fix this.

    To record a demo, open the console by pressing "~", type in record bug and then type in stop. (If your console isn't enabled see the bottom of this post for instructions on enabling it.)

    Try the other solutions below if that doesn't work.

    Enable Downloads

    If you have invisible hale models you might have your download filter set to not allow models to be downloaded.

    Open the console by pressing the "~" key (if your console isn't enabled and you don't know how to enable it, read the "Enabling Console" section at the bottom of this post) and type in the following commands:
    cl_downloadfilter all
    cl_allowdownload 1

    Then reconnect to the server so the server can download the files.

    Manually installing the models


    *Note: do not reinstall the models while TF2 is open. Close TF2 before doing this. The models provided below should work with all operating systems.

    If the methods above don't work, manually reinstalling the models should fix it.

    Download link (install instructions below):
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93545993/vsh stuff.rar

    Download mirror
    (Note this is the same .zip folder in the first download link, just on a different file website in case the first one stops working)
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/x0qdo9345cdtcja/vsh stuff.rar

    If you don't have anything to open the .zip file with, download winrar or any other free .zip extractor

    Windows 7 and Windows XP install instructions:
    Press Start (the windows icon in the lower left of your screen) > Computer > Local Disk (C) > Program Files (x86) note the x86 number may be different depending on your computer > Steam > SteamApps > common > Team Fortress 2 > place the folders taken from the vsh stuff.zip and place them into the "tf" folder

    (Thanks to @Cr33p3r for providing the instructions below)
    Windows 10 install instructions:
    Press Start (the windows icon in the lower left of your screen) > File Explorer > This PC > Local Disk (C) > Program Files (x86) note the x86 number may be different depending on your computer > Steam > SteamApps > common > Team Fortress 2 > place the folders taken from the vsh stuff.zip and place them into the "tf" folder.

    Windows 8 install instructions:
    Press the Windows key on your keyboard *or the Windows button on the lower left hand corner on Windows 8.1* then go to the search bar and type Computer *or This PC on Windows 8.1* > Local Disk (C) > Program Files (x86) note the x86 number may be different depending on your computer > Steam > SteamApps > common > Team Fortress 2 > place the folders taken from vsh stuff.zip and place them into the "tf" folder.

    Enabling Console

    This part is for the people who don't know how to enable their console. If your console is enabled ignore this.

    To enable your console, launch TF2, click "Options", in the "Keyboard" tab click "Advanced" and check the "Enable developer console" box then press "OK".

    Pretty sure it's the same for XP and 7.

    Windows 10 install instructions:
    Press Start (the windows icon in the lower left of your screen) > File Explorer > This PC > Local Disk (C) > Program Files (x86) note the x86 number may be different depending on your computer > Steam > SteamApps > common > Team Fortress 2 > place the folders taken from the vsh_resources.zip and place them into the "tf" folder.

    Yeah the only real difference between 10 and 7 are a few different file names.

    Windows 8 install instructions:
    Press the Windows key on your keyboard *or the Windows button on the lower left hand corner on Windows 8.1* then go to the search bar and type Computer *or This PC on Windows 8.1* > Local Disk (C) > Program Files (x86) note the x86 number may be different depending on your computer > Steam > SteamApps > common > Team Fortress 2 > place the folders taken from vs_resources.zip and place them into the "tf" folder.

    I haven't used 8 in a while so if I messed anything up somebody please correct me, although I think it's correct. I added Windows 10 because poo on you.

    Steam:

    Windows and mac use the same model files for VSH if I'm correct so those models in the download link should work for you.

    However I don't know the install instructions for apple stuff.

    If anyone knows the install instructions for mac operating systems it would be appreciated
