Deja vu? A few days ago Valve updated Steam's GCF file format. They removed the data from one section of the GCF file and consequently caused GCFScape to operate incorrectly. Yesterday they did it all again only this time they removed the header from the above section.
nice work! thx.
hot on their trail

This error happens onky with half-lafe.gcf (405 299 Ko)
Any idea ?
Thx in advance :)
Ok it is work ! sorry :)
I reboot my computer, download for the 3 times .NET, and it is ok for all the GCF execpt :
Half Life localised.gcf 65 536Ko
who freeze GCFScape...
I'm not sure if Steam uses the Hal-Life Localized GCF file anymore. (I recently installed Steam and I no longer have that GCF file where I did before.) One thing is for sure, 65,536 KB is a very suspicious file size because it is exactly 2^16. Why don't you try coping it somewhere then restarting Steam to see what happens.
it seems, that valve had changed the format another time!
if i want to open the platform.gcf, scape freezes.
please, could you upload a compatible version for the new format? i know, its a hard work and you have other things todo...
ups, sorry, i tried to open the file with an older gcf scape :/ , but i'd lost my overview, cause there were much revisions of scape in the past...
you can del my post.
Could not open:
Invalid file version.
The file's signature does not match.
im running the latest version that uv just posted realy would like to get this to work plz reply
