Left4Dead *.vpk Extraction Tools, now with UI

A newer build of my VPK tool that now includes a UI. It also fixes handling of the ‘small data’ in the directory file that most *.vmt files were using instead of real files in one of the other package files. Please report any issues in comments, thanks. Edit: See this newer post for a newer build of tools.

The code for this is also now available on SVN.

    I am having the same problem as CadoAngelus and RabbiVole . I’ve never extracted or modifyed my game content. i am wondering if Valve updated something and it broke it.

  2. RabbiVole says:

    I had a couple friends try it and they had the same problem- for the record, we all have perfectly working and updated versions of L4D.

    Kinda stuck on my current project until I can get this to work. Any ideas? D:

  3. Rick says:

    They changed the file format. I’ll look into releasing an updated build.

  4. Rick says:

    Also just a heads up, there is now a Valve-supplied VPK tool in the bin directory named vpk.exe with your left4dead install that can both create and extract VPKs.

    Each and everyone of you has failed… if you would possess the ability to read
    then there would be no problems.

    just go to “C:\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\bin\vpk.exe”
    Drag and Drop file and ur fine, not so difficult even the dumbest maggot can do this.

    It keeps on saying application not found… why?

  21. Peterofnj says:

    Rick, is it possible to add the functions to add file, delete file and resave the altered vpk pack, than just extract?

  22. XFunc_CaRteR says:

    Sounds like whoever made this app did half a job.

    Then, classically, he says that the users “fail” because he is too fucking lazy to make the app intuitive.
