Double click on the GCF you want to open. Provided you set the association while installing.

It refuses to extract anything from the TF2 folder with the message:
Error writing announcer_am_flawlessvictory03.wav (Error: Requested view (3892761960, 8192) does not fit inside mapping, (0, 101569896).)

The latest TF2 update has pushed the size of the content GCF above 4GB (4.09GB, to be specific) and GCFScape can no longer extract files from it.

Hi Nem. Thanks for making such useful stuff! So, what about add Vampire Bloodlines VPK-files support into GCFScape?

155. DrukiPosted: Nov 26th, 2010 - 4:47:39 pm
Has a recent update screwed with the gcf again, because I'm missing the models/player and weapons folder, and the gcf shows the content size smaller than 4gb, but the models are not missing in the game.

Hi Druki, those files were moved over to team fortress 2 materials.gcf. Presumably to reduce the file size of team fortress 2 content.gcf to under 4 GB to allow the game to run for users with FAT32 partitions.

Thank you for enlightening me, and for all of your great work.

I need some sounds, but whenever I try to extract something I get an error
" (Error: Unexpected end of GCF stream (0 B of 353836 B). Has the GCF file been completely acquired?)"
And I get empty files. How can this be fixed?

I'm also having this same problem. trying to pull off some textures from source materials.gcf . Most of them are grayed out. Ive validated all of my downloads HL2 HL2dm EP1 and EP2. Plus have Ive ran all 4 of these. Closed steam, made no difference. Is there something else I need to do?

Well this is weird, GCFScape just stopped working. It was working fine a few days before. It would open up and defrag TF2 whenever I needed it too.

Now for some reason, it isn't working anymore and is crashing and launch, or at least when I try to launch it. The window just pops up sayin' "GCFscape has stopped working". Methinks it had something to do with Today's TF2 update.

Error writing C:\Documents and Settings\My name\Desktop\weapon_fx.pcf (Error (0x00000002): Error opening file. The system cannot find the file specified.)

what did I do wrong?

Also, when I try to validate anything, I get
+Validating root\particles\weapon_fx.pcf: Incomplete+ minus the +s. even when i validate the entire file. Help?

I have problem. GCFScape doesn't work anymore at all (crash on start). I worked before on this computer. Just to make sure I've reinstalled .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and VC++ 2008 Redist.

Is there a command-line front end for GCFscape? It would be nice for automatic extraction.

164. NemPosted: Apr 10th, 2011 - 1:04:56 pm
Yes, HLExtract.

Hey, im having a bit of a problem here. There is custom music in one of these minigame maps that i want, yet i cant get GCFScape to open it without saying "Error: Invalid File Version|The Files Signature Does Not Match"

Ive extracted music from maps before, but i dont understand why it doesnt work now? Please help?
