Episode 1 Shared Gcf 
So I know of only one way to get the original runtime. It's piracy in its finest. This basically involves dumping the game's Source Materials.gcf and editing the configuration to make the game operate outside of Steam. Another solution is similar: the original files from 2004 do not appear to include the Steam keys and Steamworks features. However, the 2004 stuff appears to be readily available via various sources online. The workaround for that is to get an original disc, unpack the files, then grab the Steam client, configure it to accept only non-Steam DRM-protected files, and install Half-Life 2 into the Steam directory. Once it is installed, simply run any game from the Steam directory, in this case of course, Half-Life 2. For the experimentation and screenshot purposes, I personally loaded into the game from the Steam directory, and saved the "Ep1" file outside of Steam. (There is also an Source Materials.gcf file for that version of the game that also includes all the shaders used for the models and the like.)
I went with the first one, but i just would like to know if I can, or if I have to, download the fully "toasted" version, cause i have access to Heroes, and the new materials and hdr look awsome, so i'd like to update that version, and then make a 1.5 mod for the game.
So i found that if I open that file, just save it, or change what its version to 1.1 then it will load and the new materials link correctly. I also know that I can now obtain the 2014 data as well, but thought you might have a better confirmation of the above. An update to 1.
Hello, I'm trying to update the half-life 2 gcf file from c: directory on Steam, but everytime I click on it a new window pops up and tells me it's downloading, which is cool, but I want to update it instead of downloading it.
Well, I downloaded the addon file from the Half-Life 2 modding contest from the hackerspace because i studied it a bit on my way here, but I can't get the gcf file to update. I also transferred it to the latest version of the Half-Life 2 modding contest on steam. d2c66b5586
