Black Mesa: Wiki
I put it in the steamapps folder (i downloaded episode 1 & 2 gfcs, parts one and two and everything else, extracted only part 1s, since the gfc files are the same (i guess?) and when I get to steam, it just says that it's "Extracting" or "Downloading files", but nothing happens. I try to start it, but I get the same problem that the steam server cant bla bla bla... Whats the dealio?
*edit, do I have to extract ALL the parts, since part 1 needed part 2 to continue I figured i only needed to extract one
no one? please help!
You need to download all the parts.
You then extract part 1 then it will say extracting part 2.
You need all the parts of any file that is in parts.
Oh god, thank you! Now I can complete the content in garry's mod, and hell, no more missing textures!
noooo link to hl2 episode 1 part 2 broken ! i so want this
So, anyone know the fix to the problem some ppl have here... The messed-up textures in ep 2.

Episode Two Materials.gcf
Episodic 2007 Shared.gcf

yes when it is stuck at "download starting" that means that some parts are missing,

To make it wotk you need
1- Get a cracked Steam,I recomend you this:

download all exept the Chinese Health Warning.gcf
3- Copy all the files downloaded in the C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps
then it sould work fine
omg you are my hero thanks i was looking so badly for these files, thank you very much!
edit: i heard some people are getting problems with the textures, i have all the gcfs, do i will get texture problems?
edit 2: i got all the files for ep2, now when i go to steam ep2 is downloading, and download started at 82%, is that normal? Its downloading correctly im having no problems
yo are welcome,and I downloaded the files from there and I dont have any textures problem so you shouldnt have it too
and that it is in 82% is ok
can u re upload as a torrent file
REFER TO: This Thread where you talk about the same sheet.
Oh and the answer is most probably defiantly a No.

Ha i changed my ip six times in an hour but its gona be soooo worth it! And the texture errors ive been hearing about they arnt a big deal right i mean im just using this for gmod an a little fun on episode two!?!?
HL2DM GCF & Base Src Engine 2 :: Updated - Feb. 17th 2010
Since this is a thing Valve or something made, can you directly download it from Cracked Steam?
The Password www.FreeSteam.org dont work for episodic 2007 shared.gcf ? whats the password?
trie whit www.Freesteam.org or www.freeSteam.org or www.freesteam.org
Materials dosent work? i enter correct password but if i try to extract/open i get: CRC Failed in the Encrypted file episode 2 materials.gcf (wrong password ?). i just need these materials to run EP2 but the file dosnt work. and that ZCP some files dont have any mirrors so dont go saying to download it off that.
try redownloading it. if it still doesn't work then it needs reuploaded.
k Downloading now... Fingers Crossed
Edit: Slow internet will finish in hour. gonna play some Sauerbraten.
Yeys! psuchris you deserve an interweb cookie. re-downloaded and worked fine. took a bit longer to download than i hoped but worked.
When I downloaded episode 2 part 1 I tried to extract it but it said I needed part 2 so I downloaded that to, but it still said I needed the other part.
you must have both parts in the same folder
Because it is pure text... i think.
Wait stupid question... do i have to dl all of them if i wana just fix 1 cause my episode 2 content one is erroring on install... so i though i would replace... but do i have to dl them all
Do you have the rest of them? If you do then no.
What files do I need to ONLY install HL2: Episode 1? I have HL2 and HL2M...
EDIT: Actually, I can play it. The only problem is that most of the textures are missing and the game is full of ERROR signs. Any suggestions? I got:
base source engine 2.gcf
episode 1 shared.gcf (Part 1)
episode 1 shared.gcf (Part 2)
episodic 2007 shared.gcf
half-life 2 episode one.gcf
I already had HL2 and HL2: Deathmatch, so I didnt get that. Should I have to get the EP2 content? That doesnt make sense...
Help if possible.
trie validating the files and mayve they will auto-fix themselfs
With CFToolbox? To the most of my knowledge that doesnt work, but Ill try it...
Gaah. This is insane. Could someone tell me the files I need to download so that I am able to play Half-Life 2: Episode One? I tried getting all of the ones that it looked like I needed, as well as the source file and the episodic file, but is that it? I already have HL2 and HL2: Deathmatch, so I didnt download them.. Can someone PLEASE list the proper items? At one point it worked and I was able to load it, but with checkerboards and missing models and textures, but then it went back to 0% when I tried to correct this with CF Toolbox, so I dont know. Will someone just tell me which frieking GCFs to download?
to validate the files you have to enter to steam(patched) rigth click HL2EP1
and click properties then in the local files tab press verify integrity of game cache
I'm downloading the links, and so far, none of them are broken.
Keep up the good work
Edit:The HL2ep2Content part 2 is really slow...
Thank you! These files are OK except that "episode two content.gcf" is incomplete.
According to CF Toolbox half-life 2 episode 1.gcf is not valid. Downloaded file 3 times with same result.
