Source 2007 - NemPosted: Sep 14th, 2007 - 4:10:16 am

Anyone sniffing around the recent Team Fortress 2 preload may have noticed that many of the preloaded VTF files are of a new version. As part of refinements being made to the Source engine, Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life 2: Episode 2 will introduce v7.3 of the VTF format, a minor overhaul exposing an extensible resource interface.

For those interested in taking a gander, I've added support for the new VTF version to VTFLib/VTFEdit, the Photoshop VTF Plug-In, the Paint.Net VTF Plug-In and Crafty. VTFLib and VTFEdit have also been updated to use the newer v2.0 of the .NET Framework.

New VTFEdit doesn't work, I reinstalled it and NET Runtime 2.0 many times.

It says the program is corrupted and reinstalling could help. But it doesn't, always giving the same error.

Older VTFEdits do work.

It would help if I had the exact error message. Either way, I've added builds for both v1.1 and v2.0 of the .NET framework on the downloads page.

Lol, I was just looking at the preloaded GCFs wondering if you updated VTFEdit, and you did! Nice work :D

The download link for the app doesn't work. It points to "vtfedit124-20.exe" but it is actually called "vtfedit124.exe"

Now it works, I don't understand what caused the error. The error I got was this:

"The application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix the problem."

So, thanks for adding support to the new format, I can take a look of what is coming soon.

hy nemesis,

you should try removing .exe verification in the .net 2 version of it... it may be the problem... if you want send me an build of it that i can test it!

My problem was solved by installing the SP1 of the C++ 2005 executables. Maybe you should put a link on the download page.

I have the same problem... Running on a XPx64 computer. None of the builds. I've tried all of the frameweorks i think and I'm currently on 3.0.

Anything I've overlooked?
