Don't Panic - NemPosted: Oct 29th, 2010 - 1:37:09 am

I've received a number of emails from users having trouble extracting files from team fortress 2 content.gcf. It's taken eight years, but with the advent of the TF2 Scream Fortress, Valve have finally authored a GCF file larger than 4 GB. As many of you have found out, HLLib does not properly support files larger than 4 GB (partly due to my naive younger self, and partly because I wasn't sure if Steam did either).

Long story short, I updated HLLib to support files larger than 4 GB tonight, and I will release said update this weekend when I have time to build all the installers and more thoroughly test everything.

Happy Halloween!

Update

HLLib 2.4.0, GCFScape 1.8.2, VTFEdit 1.3.2 and Crafty 1.0.2 have been released and all support GCF files larger than 4 GB in size.

Nice to hear this. I just wanted to start creating some new models for TF2 and then I noticed GCFScape was broken. Cant wait for the update! happy

I don't suppose you'd be willing to release a non-installer version first so we don't have to wait? :D

He'll get around to it when he can, testing can take a little while since he has to make sure nothing is broken with the new version.

@Nem - that's actually last year's Halloween update that you've linked. This years is located at http://www.teamfortress.com/screamfortress/

Is it done yet? I wanted to make my friend a Halloween overpowered weapon before it's Halloween.

Sorry guys, this might have to wait until next weekend. One of the drives in my OS RAID 0 partition failed today and I'll have to get a replacement drive and reinstall everything this weekend.
