OK thanks I will try that. I am actually trying to install The Orange Box on my Windows 10 PC I had another interesting thought as well regards legality. If Valve do not recognise me as the legal owner of this product does that also mean the EULA it contains does not legally apply to me either, so I …

Hi Valur As far as I understand it we extract each GCF in turn to a folder then copy the contents of the extraction (which is usually some subfolders) to a target folder So you will get sometimes, it overwrites existing files in the target - so far on one extraction it overwrote 1562 files in the …

So when you say the games are broken on The orange Box do you mean that I can't play HL2 EP2 from the disks anyway? Otherwise I am doing something wrong most likely When i open Phoenix now it says Half Life 2 is there but if i press Lauch I get an error - No Base Game for the AppID (See pic 1) There …

OK So I don't know if I am doing this right, but when I copied the two disks to the PC I ended up with those SIM and SID files as I posted above. So I used Phoenix (which seems to be something rather like winrar) and Scanned the SIM files. I then extracted all the files found with disk 1 sim then …

Thought that would help but no. Googled Phoenix 15_RC2 found the first link to cutedrive page, downloaded it 17Mb no virus but it is just a load of php files Trying to find this software is taking me to some very murky places. I found some youtube tutorials but any links they give didn't work either …

Hmm OK. not one to give up, I googled for Sid and it says I can these are kinda like zip files and I can unpack them with Phoenix SID unpacker. So it sounds like those Sid files are like Cab files and would have the files i need in them. But where do I get that Phoenix from? The first link in google …

Yeah that's OK mate. I'm a big advocate for freedom of speech but I am sure google will be happy to speak to me me once I know what to ask for. A lot of this stuff is new to me and quite exciting. And to be quite honest I find the challenge of getting things working is usually more interesting than …

To extract the working products you need to use Phoenix and then use revemu to run the games without steam. (Revemu works all the way down to Half-Life 2 1.0 Build 2187) (Builds v5135 and higher are DRM free) OK thanks. I don't know what Phoenix and revemu is but I bet google will help me now i …
