How to properly install the VPKs inside the Weapon Script Pack
First I would like to apologize for some of the confusion (I'm new to the workshop).

The following guide is to show how to unpack this pack properly and getting the vpk file/s to your addon folder for use.

Step 1:
Subscribe to his mod, wait for the download to complete, than launch the game. When you get the confirmation that the Weapons Script Pack has been loaded (and check your addons in your option menu). Then you can exit the game.

Step 2:
To unpack this you need " VPK.exe ", Open steam go to " Library " change the listing from " Games " to " Tools " scroll down until you find " Left 4 Dead 2 Authoring Tools ", download it.

Step 3:
Now go to the folder that contains the VPK application (VPK.exe).
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\bin
Scroll down until you find a application called VPK. You may want to make a short cut to your desktop for easy access.

Step 4:
Go to your Workshop folder in your addons folder.
C:\Program Files\steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons\workshop
You will find vpk file labeled a bunch of numbers, 154033802 (This how it is for me, but you will get the mod thumbnail picture named the same thing, so finding it would not be to hard.)

Step 5:
Click and drag (grab) the vpk file mentioned above (154033802) and drop it over the VPK.exe located in
C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\bin
or the shortcut. It will then create a folder named the same thing (154033802) in the same folder as your vpk file (which in most cases is your workshop folder.).

Step 6:
Open the folder that was just created. You'll see some text files for more information and some more folders containing all the vpk files that are the actual mods / scripts. You can now grab the vpk files you want and drop them in your addons folder.
C:\Program Files\steam\SteamApps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons\
Launch L4D2 and enjoy.

Hope this helps and again sorry. - LoadedAK47

Oh sorry the "Weapon Script Pack" VPK, but I'm pretty sure the file is a bunch of numbers (atleast its like that for me.) grab it and drop it over the VPK.exe or if you made a shortcut you can drop it over that.

hey loaded, every time i try to move it into it, the files just move help?

Not sure what your trying to say, but when you drop the vpk over the VPK.exe it will create a folder in same folder as your addon vpk. You open the folder grab the VPKs in it and simply copy paste them in your addon folder. Sorry if I misunderstood,

like the file i downloaded was 154033802, and i drop it on the shortcut, and they just switch places, atleast thats what i think ur telling me to do
LoadedAK47  [developer] Jun 21, 2013 @ 12:27pm 
Okay when you drop it on the VPK.exe or shortcut, it would not switch places unless your setup is weird. It would make a folder called 154033802 in the same folder which your vpk addon is in which in this case for you it might be the workshop folder .You will than see all the stuff in it.
Dinon Jun 21, 2013 @ 12:32pm 
well, it moves when i put it on the shortcut, and when i drag it to the exe its self, it just doesnt do any thing.
Dinon Jun 21, 2013 @ 12:32pm 
could i open it manualy and then try and do that?
vinny Jun 21, 2013 @ 2:03pm
