GCFScape v1.3.1 - GCFScape and all the files you need to run it (except the .NET Framework).Download: (Required)
.NET Framework v1.1 (23,698 KB Executable) - GCFScape is written in C++ .NET and as such requires the .NET runtime to run. The .NET runtime is also available as a Windows Update. v1.1 is required.Download:
What version of GCFScape and the .NET framework do you have? What does your task manager say about GCFScape (i.e. is it using 100% of your CPU time)?
What are you trying to do? If you just want to play CS you don't need to extract your GCF files, you just need Steam.
JS scape is only useful for mod makers, and map makers, otherwise its ueless to you
I'm trying to use GCFScape Version 1.2.3 with Microsoft's .NET Framework Version 1.1
When I click on the gcfscape .exe it doesn't even run.
check your task maniger to see if it is running, is there any thing in its log
I am using Windows 2000 SP4 (latest patches etc.)... it crashed even before it started up... luckily I have the .NET core debugger stuffage (though no debugging symbols), which I got this info:

Though, this probably doesn't tell much, only that it doesn't like the policies it was compiled with... which is the main reason why I don't like programs that utilize .NET framework (there's always an OS that it hates running under). Note; I have versions 1.1.4322.573 and 2.0.40607.42 (beta) installed.
Hmm... I fixed it... apparently you do not want to execute these files over a network drive. For whichever reason I'll never know; but that is just stupid how it will crash so well.
Yes .NET has some piss poor error messages, but it does make up for it (at least on my side) in productivity. Maybe you can change the security settings in your Control Panel (Administrative Tools)?
i tried to extract the half-life.gcf but , with FULL of writing errors! so a lot of missing files! please someone help me solve this problem.
Is your Half-Life.gcf fully acquired? What errors were you receiving?
I got it to work... Finally. I had to re-format my hard-drive... I'm not sure about anyone else though, Microsoft's Service Pack 2 definately messed my computer up. I couldn't use anything that required the .NET Framework.
But now that I can use GCF Scape I'm happy and can actually start mapping again.
A) SP2 in no way affects .NET applications
B) There is a patch for the v1.1 .NET framework. Make sure you have it
C) Your half-life.gcf file was either not fully aquired or it was corrupt.
The only thing SP2 changes is security. Yes the new stuff is annoying, but it is livable.
I've had some people report that viruses had prevented .NET from working correctly. Maybe you suffered from the same thing?
SP2 majorly fudged my computer up too (though .NET ran fine).
Heys guys - Great work ;) helped me loads - but... now for some strange reason... when i try and play CS:CZ it ask's for ----.sc files...
Where can i get them? iv'e tried google and other search engine's.. but no look. any idea's lads ?
No idea, might want to ask Steam questions in the Steam forums...
ok so i extracted "condition zero.gcf" where do i put the folders in steam...and how do i make it work?
