GCFScape v1.8.6 Full - NemPosted: Jan 17th, 2006 - 8:27:11 pm

GCFScape v1.8.6 - GCFScape and all the files you need to run it (except the .NET Framework).

Download: Runtimes: (Required)

.NET Framework - GCFScape is written in C++ .NET (using Visual C++ 2010 SP1) and as such requires the .NET Framework 4.0 (or later) and the Visual C++ 2010 SP1 runtime to run.


If you don't already have the .Net Framework installed, or are unsure what to do, download the .Net Framework 4.*:

If you already have the .Net Framework installed, and just want to update your C++ runtimes, download the appropriate Visual C++ runtime:

The Grey colour indicates in fact that the files are missing. Since I've recently heard more often of such problems, I'd like to take a look myself, so could you please tell me which GCF-File you are opening?

Try half-life 2 content.gcf
Been a problem since the Mac update.

On clan server (Windows 2003 R2)

d1_eli_01.bsp and a few others are grey.
If you run validate it says they are incomplete.


I have deleted HL2 and re-downloaded. Makes no difference.

On home PC Win7 x64 the files are not grey and do validate / extract. However when I uploaded to Synergy server and select map it states "Server version differs"

Hope that helps.

Try half-life 2 content.gcf

Okay, I took a look. When you redownload the GCF, you don't get all the files. I noticed that VALVe moved the missing files into half-life 2 2007 base content.gcf. You will find what you are looking for in there :)
On home PC Win7 x64 the files are not grey and do validate / extract.

I assume you had HL2 installed there before the update. The files were left over, it's the same for me (my GCF is complete, but when I redownload, some files are missing).
Hope that helped,

Thats great thanks. Not what I expected at all. Would be nice if it cleaned up after itself :-)

Very stange that GCFScape still shows the names in the original location. Some catalog in the GCF I presume.

Thanks again I'll get my Synergy server updated tonight and see if eli_01 has been fixed. The old one used to make Synergy crash :-(

Indeed, it's the GCF's fault. Afaik, it contains a table of files which are inside.

Thanks again I'll get my Synergy server updated tonight and see if eli_01 has been fixed.

yw and good luck!

Okay. So I believe it is because of the stupid Mac update (No offense to Mac users, it just sucks) but I figured out it will not load up my "Source Materials" content folder but will however load up my "Source 2007 Shared Materials" folder and load up everything in that. I got a little upset at first, but no worry now.

If anyone is having the same problem as I am with the GCF files not being able to download and what not, please use:

SOURCE 2007 SHARED MATERIALS" and I believe it will work. Thank you for your help though.apple

This program doesn't work with the new VPK2 format introduced in yesterdays (10/3/2012) update to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Is there any plan to update it?

i just tried opening the latest files and it worked...which file are you opening? remember that you need to open the _dir vpk file!

j'ai essayé ouvrir la courante version de cs go et ca marche...quelle fichier est-ce que tu essaye à ouvrir? on doit sélectionner la vpk avec _dir en nom.

(pardonnez moi, je ne parle la langue francaise pas très bien, et je pense que google translate est trop stupide)

Doesn't work with new Valve GCF format, just updated half-life 2 deathmatch.gcf and says Incomplete for all files, extraxts them as 0 bytes files. Any update coming soon?

When I go to File>Open then to Steam>Steamapps I don't see "Team Fortress 2 Content" anywhere but I have TF2!

83. PhraggahModified: Aug 10th, 2013 - 12:46:48 am
I hope people still read these comments. Using the latest version of GCFscape, but .vmt files no longer appear when opening the new .vpk files. I can't see vmt's in TF2, HL2, or any other steampipe game it seems. Is this something that can be fixed?

Going through the files such as tf2_textures_dir with a text editor, I can see the files still exist in there as plaintext. What's going on?

Hi, folks. Extremely new to what you do here. Is this where I would post for some help with a downloaded game that is a .vpk file? I downloaded the GCFScape v1.8.5 full, but have NO idea what to do from this point.

I just want the game because it is based in a local small(ish) town - might be fun. I'd appreciate any help that you can offer a willing student. Thanks!
