I opened up steam today for the first time in at least a few days, and I swear I saw that it was "updating" Natural Selection (v3.2). I thought that was strange since its such an old game and not really a steam app. It only took a fraction of a second, but I'm pretty sure I saw something. Now, when I join a NS1 server, it fails to load some assets like animations. I tried a fresh install, didn't change anything. Any ideas?

Hi Umbra, the half-life update today is probably what caused that. I'm not sure what it updated, I guess some security patch.

I suggest using NS 3.2.2, which fixes a lot of issues caused by recent half life updates. Unfortunately, some servers haven't updated so playing on ones running 3.2 will cause some issues with movement desync.

I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but how do you install the NSLauncher? The instructions are not very "step-by-step", it just says "If you are building from sources..." and I don't know what that means. I would much appreciate a little more guidance on how to "build it from sources". I have the repo downloaded.

You don't need the repo downloaded, that and the instructions you read are for development of the launcher. You can download this exe to install the launcher and have that install the game https://github.com/ENSL/NaturalLauncher/releases/download/1.0.3.0/NaturalLauncherInstall.exe

Or go here for the files to manually put them in your half-life folder:
