why don't you use the dll's from the sdk, that whould make it possible to open the gcf's while steam is running!!!

35. NemPosted: Sep 30th, 2005 - 3:30:38 pm
You can open .gcf files when Steam is running, just enable the "Volatile Access" option from within the Options menu in GCFScape. The reason I don't use the Steam SDK is 1) the Steam SDK wasn't out when I first wrote the program, 2) the Steam file system interface isn't very flexible and 3) it adds additional dependencies; I hate having to install things to certain folders.

HI, i'm trying to install GCFScape and I keep getting this error:
"The setup files are corrupt. Please obtain a new copy of the program"

I've tried redownloading the installer several times, and I have already installed the .NET framework.

Any Ideas

I've double-checked the installer and it seems fine, perhaps there is an incompatibility problem with your system? Anyways, you don't need the installer to install GCFScape, there is also an "archive" (zip) distribution available, just unzip and run. The only difference is that it doesn't create shortcuts etc.

hi, i have a question. i need to decompile the map files from harf-life2. but there is no *.gcf file as i searched the whole hl2 folder. i can only find *.bsp files in the map folder. so do you mean that the bsp files are gcf files that need to be cracked before i use them in my program?

please check this out: http://www.geocities.com/cofrdrbob/faq.html

the faq says that:

Q. I can't find any of the Valve maps to decompile. Where are they?A. Probably stored in the .gcf file. You need GCF Scape to extract them, before they can be decompiled.

but what i get are bsp files, there is no gcf files.

39. NemPosted: Dec 16th, 2005 - 12:58:32 pm
In your ...\Steam\SteamApps\ folder there should be a half-life 2 content.gcf file. The file contains the HL2 .bsp files and you can open it with GCFScape to extract them.

v1.4.0 has Source BSP support, make sure to update the .NET framework if you install it.
