Installing Mods For Original L4D
12,914
There is correctly 2 ways to install addons for L4D1
1. Editing pak01_dir (hard one)
Editing some lines in pak01_dir.vpk file.
if you're a beginner don't do this.
2. Extracted pak01_dir
Tools you need
1. gcfscape

Step 1. Open pak01_dir and do the following : CTRL + Left Click on "models","materials,"particles".
Step 2. right click on them while they are "blue" and click extract.
Step 3. Extract them where pak01_dir is located (left 4 dead/left4dead)
Step 4. Wait
Step 5. After the extracting is done, rename your pak01_dir to pak01old_dir
Step 6. Put the addon you want in addons folder

With this method you can install addons without editing pak01_dir!

To All you People Raging, Instead Of Renaming pak01_dir to pak01old_dir rename pak01_dir to pak01_dira (it should work that way)

Also, i'm sorry for posting 2 times :: the 1st was my initial message and the 2nd was supposed to be an edit, like change some of what I wanted to say but I don't know how to delete the first so ;; and now this 3rd is explaining the 1st being left after making an edit to it which was the 2nd. I'm sorry about that

I know this doesn't have to do with the mod itself, but I'm having a problem with starting GCFScape.exe because MSVCR100.dll is missing from my computer. The Error pop up box says to try reinstalling the program to fix the problem, and I did 3 times but each time I get the same problem. GCFScape.exe can't start because MSVCR100.dll is missing from my computer. Would someone mind helping me with this problem, please? I don't know or understand how to fix the MSVCR100.dll error. I have used this guide before to install mods before and never had this problem previously this guide, Other then that, this guide is flawless and has helped me to be able to install mods for my favorite game which I didn't used to know how to do ~^ So thank you so much BoomerSTEAM. You Rock ~^ And I hope to be able to continue using it to install my favorite mods once I get this problem with MSVCR100.dll fixed :)
