EP2 MOD FIX
To start, open your broken mod's "gameinfo.txt". It should look like this:

FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 420
ToolsAppId 211

SearchPaths
{
Game |gameinfo_path|.
Game |all_source_engine_paths|ep2
Game |all_source_engine_paths|episodic
Game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
}
}
}

Replace it by the code below:

FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 420

SearchPaths
{
game+mod |gameinfo_path|.
platform |gameinfo_path|.

game_lv hl2/hl2_lv.vpk
game+mod ep2/ep2_english.vpk
game+mod ep2/ep2_pak.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|episodic/ep1_english.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|episodic/ep1_pak.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_english.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_pak.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_textures.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_sound_vo_english.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_sound_misc.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_misc.vpk
platform |all_source_engine_paths|platform/platform_misc.vpk

mod+mod_write+default_write_path |gameinfo_path|.

game+game_write |gameinfo_path|.

gamebin episodic/bin

game |all_source_engine_paths|episodic
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
platform |all_source_engine_paths|platform
}
}
}

This should make your EP2 mod functional (SteamAppId 420).


HL2 MOD FIX
As in EP2 fix, you start by opening the mod's "gameinfo.txt". It should look like this:

FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 220
ToolsAppId 211

SearchPaths
{
Game |gameinfo_path|.
Game sourcetest
Game hl2
}
}
}

Replace the it by this:

FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 220

SearchPaths
{
game+mod |gameinfo_path|.
platform |gameinfo_path|.

game_lv hl2/hl2_lv.vpk
game+mod hl2/hl2_sound_vo_english.vpk
game+mod hl2/hl2_pak.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_textures.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_sound_misc.vpk
game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2/hl2_misc.vpk
platform |all_source_engine_paths|platform/platform_misc.vpk

mod+mod_write+default_write_path |gameinfo_path|.
game+game_write |gameinfo_path|.
gamebin hl2/bin

game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
platform |all_source_engine_paths|platform
}
}
}

Thos should fix your HL2 mod (SteamAppId 220).


OPTIONAL HL2/EP2 FIX

Use this fix in the case the original fix allows you to start your mod, but
it crashes with missing files.
Open "gameinfo.txt" from the mod and replace the "FileSystem" section
and everything below by this:

HL2 mods
FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 215
ToolsAppId 211

SearchPaths

Game |gameinfo_path|.
Game sourcetest
Game hl2
}

EP2 mods
FileSystem
{
SteamAppId 218
ToolsAppId 211
AdditionalContentId 420

SearchPaths

Game |gameinfo_path|.
Game |all_source_engine_paths|sourcetest
Game |all_source_engine_paths|ep2
Game |all_source_engine_paths|episodic
Game |all_source_engine_paths|hl2
}

Really no offence but to be really honest, this mod looks not good so far.I mean, on some places on your maps a wall is just pitch black and most models are stolen from gamebanana members.If you want a modeler, go to interlopers.

I have not stolen anything.
I have sent a message to all the makers, for use of their materials and media.
I actually have written it in earlier news post`s.

And yes, I have thought about the case to find a model maker. But first I need to finish the maps and basic stuff...

I read this
"Tds4-Barney replacement01

Want a different face but do not have the knowledge needed to create new characters.

I hope the creator gives me permission.

Thanks :)"
How you want to finish the map without new models though?

Could have tried to replace his face, and to finish the maps...well I assumes that it is up to me. If they gives me permission?...I hope so :) Since they were published on garrysmod.org, I would think it is fine, don`t you think?

But as I said earlier...I asked.

The mapping looks pretty awful and the models are ripped from other games.

Your texturing, lighting and architecture all need work. >:(

Well, personally I care about the header. I, much like 90% of the population judge something on the first thing I see. the header being the first thing, it is important that it sets a good example for the rest of the mod, and makes everything look of a high quality.
