How do you reset the played chapters back to beginning?

When starting a new game you obviously can't proceed to the next chapter, however, I loaded chapter 5 using the changelevel command as I use it to benchmark my framerate. I'd like to know to to reset back to a state where the background menu is of the first level and the game doesn't show that all five chapters have been played already.

Is it a simple matter of deleting some sort of config file and verifying the cache to rebuilt it?

Why does it matter what the background level is? You can't do anything in it. Hell I would settle with not loading a BG level at ALL to quicken the load times.

Why do you care what level he wants the background to be? He came asking for help not your criticism. I'll find out if a certain command works for you hotshot_.

Try,
sv_unlockedchapters 1
In console

Easily done. Pass -dev as one of the command line options to the game on launch, according to this: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/...d_Line_Options

Have yet to test this myself, but I know it can be done because I found some solution a few years back.
