Hey whats up, the program is not working. I installed the requirment and still it doesn't work. It gave me an error before and now it stills give me an error, but a different one, it tells me to terminate the program. Pleeeeeeeeez help me i am desprate to open the files of counter strike and half-life. By the way i deleted the program so many times and put it again thinking it will solve the problem, but it didn't :( :( :(
UtilityFan, that error is usualy caused because you do not have Mocrosoft .NET Framework v.1.1 installed on your system. To get it go here
Cribs is probably right but without providing the actual error there is very little I can do to help you. You'll have to expand on your problem a little more if you want help.
Everytime I try to extract anything, the window that comes up is blank where there should be something to select a drectory to extrat to.
I have 1.1 net thingy instaled
As far as I can tell (and I've done a lot of research on it) it's a silly .NET bug and there isn't much I can do about it.
I cant get GFCscape to work either, it says a required DLL MSCOREE was not found
Anyone know why?
*sigh* you'd think people would read everything.
anyways, great tool! havn't had any problems with it.
I still can't get it to work! it wont extract anything! Why god why?
I believe the question is:
Why Microsoft Why?
The new update (17 June) I think just changed the format of the GCF's because I can't extract files anymore from some GCF's...
The others (platform.gcf and half-life engine.gcf) I can't even open them
I want my GCFScape to work again!!! :(
Yeah, Valve have changed the gcf format in the June 17 update. Major annoyance. Hope they haven't encrypted the files...
I want my GCFScape to work again too!
Well thanks for the heads up. I've backed up some of my GCF files and I'll update Steam shortly, hopefully this will allow me to see what has changed about the format.
Okay, at first glance it looks like the section called the 'Block Entry Usage Map' no longer has any data associated with it, just an empty header. I never liked this section and wondered why it was there in the first place as it just complicated things.
Anyways, because GCFScape makes a fair bit of use of this section, it will be a while before I can write a workaround; hopefully sometime under a week.
