dude, work so fine... hey you say a week.. no day or 3 hour fix that
I downloaded the GScape 1.3 beta version and tried to open the counterstrike.gcf, halflife.gcf and halflifeengine.gcf files but they dont work. Only platform.gcf opens. It says "Invalid gcf version number". Make sure the file is not already open and that stean is not running. I closed steam but it still doesnt work. also could u tell me what do i do next once ive opened say for example the counterstrike.gcf file. do i right click and say extract or shell execute. also to play counterstrike which files from the above do i need to extract?
Ok, if you get an error, make sure you have v126.96.36.199 Beta. When you run this version and you get an error it will produce a file called "dump.txt" in your GCFScape directory. Copy the contents of this file and send it to me to help me debug what the error is.
im sorry but i did what u said but it does not produce a file called dump.txt in my GCFScape directory.
What was the error message then?
i was woundering is it possible to replace files within the .gcf files, as my problem deals with maps that differ (that are located in the .gcf files), using the gcf scpae ofcourse? If not do you know of any programs that would assist me with this problem, steam have no fix.
Hi, Nem. I'm interest in your tools. But There is a problem when I try to open "half-life.gcf"
The error message has been shown.
Could not open:
Invalid GCF version number.
Make sure the file is not already open and that Steam is not running.
Yes, I'm never run Steam yet. It's downloaded from ftp://ftp.snt.utwente.nl/pub/games/halflife/steam/
And .NET ver 1.1 has been installed. Can you help me? Thank you.
Another GCF files cannot be open too. I used version 188.8.131.52 Beta now. And "dump.txt" hasn't be created.
The error is "Invalid GCF version number." which means that you have a version of a GCF file that GCFScape doesn't support.
I will download some of the GCF files on that site and see if I can add support for them.
OK, I've added support for version 3 GCF files. I found exactly two changes between version 3 and version 5 so I'm going to try and download some more GCF files to see if I can see which one of those changes was made in version 4 before I upload the new GCFScape.
I've also improved the error messages so they all don't suggest you close Steam even when the error has nothing to do with Steam. Along with that I've added a version panel to the status bar.
No such luck, I've uploaded the new version though.
hey nem thanks a lot fer the help. gcfscape v1.1.4 works but could u tell me where to extract the files counterstrike.gcf, half life.gcf, halflife engine.gcf, and platform.gcf to meaning should i extract them all to my cs folder or in separate folders.
No idea what you are trying to do or why you need to extract all those files...
i wanna play counter strike and i downloaded steam which has cs and half life cached. so could u tell how to go about playing counterstrike
Just download the Steam installer and run it. You don't have to extract anything...
