Alright, first thing is first, im new to the forums as this is my FIRST post but i am not new to half-life 2
anyways, latley i've been customzing some of my downlaoded mods a bit and i was wondering how to access the source model files (Not just to veiw them on like on sdk) ie; i do not know where to find the file for weapon_smg1 (mdl files and such) as they are not in my directory is there a certain program i need in order to find these files?
I don't think you need a specific program to FIND the models, but you may need one to open the file and view it. I think I can find the folder that the models are stored in. I will get back with a reply in a few hours. Since I deleted all my model and texture folders trying to fix uninstall the cinematic mod, thinking HL2 would reinstall the proper files, Which it didn't, instead magically using the cinematic stuff still. EVEN THOUGH IT IS NO WHERE ON MY HARD DRIVE. But like I said, I'll check in a few hours, once I get around to fixing my problem.
you need to open the .gcf files, you can use a program like this one for it http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?p=25
the .gcf files are located in something like C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\
