HL2 EP1,2 and lost coast content
I was playing Garry's Mod recently, and well I spawned a zombine--error model popped up in its place. so I disconnected, and checked, seeing that I have absolutely no access to the HL2 EP1,2, and lost coast content--no maps either!

I already checked all 3 games for verification of game cache, and defragged & verified Garry's Mod, and I still can't even access any of the episode 1, 2, and lost coast HL2 installments.

what the bloody hell?!

UPDATE: every thing is in check, problem's solved, etc.

You need to mount them, at the main menu, near the bottom right, click the small icon that looks like a remote controller, then tick the boxes next to them. :D

Actually, you need to enable the Steampipe betas for Eps 1 and 2 and then launch them both (to convert them to the Steampipe format). Lost Coast is supposed to work the same way but it was broken last I checked.

Captain, I'm not new to the whole garry's mod 13 format.
bill, I already tried that.

And they still didn't work? That's... odd...
I assume you did relaunch them, convert to new format, and allowed them to finish downloading by the standard steam download system...
Lost Coast won't work properly even with steampipe (according to some reports) so I'm not sure I can help you with that, but Eps 1 and 2 are still broken?
Gravy, man, I don't know what else might need to happen.

if you start a random hl2 game it will come up a patch or something like that, it happend for me too.
Donga Maximongus May 13, 2013 @ 1:13pm 
@freeman, I said I checked for verifications on all 3 HL2 EP1, EP2, and lost coast, and there were none.

I didn't know that you had to re-install all 3 of those games after setting them to steampipe beta--so now the problem's over with.
how do u set them to steampipe beta
Donga Maximongus May 13, 2013 @ 5:17pm 
just right click on the/a game, go down to properties, beta--click on the drop-down menu, and click steampipe beta. it doesn't need a code, it'll say it's opt automaticly without the code.

if nothing happens, just re-install the game, while it's still on steampipe beta

I have possibly the same problem. I already started a new discussion, but I'll try this method. I'll tell you if it works for me.

But steampipe is no longer running? The episodes I downloaded haven't mounted either... What do I do?
Donga Maximongus Sep 8, 2014 @ 5:33pm 
I should get to closing old threads of mine...
the problem's fixed, on my end that is, therefore I've not much to say.
other than... are they legit copies of the HL2 series you have? or are they pirated, Cpt_Shmitt?

purchased clean off steam (The Orange box)

oh. I dunno then, even though I have heard some notoriety of the orange box pack, but don't recall much of it. you'll have to look into any cons of the pack yourself - I got my games individually.
