IT WORKS FOR ME AS WELL!!!! woo, i opened the biggest file and its just fine:D
and please do not post information about or ask questions about hacking.
Alais and demonichachsaw:
Thanks for testing it. Now all I have to do is figure out a way to combine the code for the next release (the workaround is less memory efficient). It will probably be in the form a command line switch.
As much as I disagree with some of Valve's copyright protection schemes there will be no talk of that sort of thing here. There is also virtually no chance that GCFScape will ever modify a GCF file. See the FAQ.
What would be cool is if you could make a tool which would set up a GCF file as a virtual drive in windows
Can Anyone help me with my HL2 to play without steam?
no. you can only play HL2 on Steam.
I opened GCFscape, then the half-life 2 content.gcf, and I went into maps and double-clicked on some of them and it said, "gameinfo.txt doesn't exist in hl2"
So...can someone help me?
As for the error, it sounds like Steam is trying to open the .bsp file but is set up incorrectly.
NoBody: Do you have a link so I can investigate?
On the MakePakGUI website, it claims "makepak.exe is copyrighted by Valve Software"
Now, I know that they have not officially released any thing like this so I would assume it is something that someone made, or it is a reminant of the source leak.
But I don't know if it even works because I don't want to test it.
Anyways, I am quite sure part of Valve's Steam plane was to create a GCF authoring suit for MOD developers so they could distribute their MODs over Steam. This could be a manifestation of this, but I don't think it is legitimate (possibly, as you said, a remnant of the Source leek).
I sent you a email with a ppt you might find interesting.
