    I'm having a problem finding pak01_dir.vpk with GCFScape. I go to my common/Team Fortress 2/tf folder and see tf2_textures_dir, tf_sound_dir, and tf2_misc_dir but no pak01_dir.vpk. I've verified the files twice already. Anyone else run into this problem?

    All of the game files are spread accross those named vpks. There is no such file as pak01_dir.vpk for TF2.

    pak01_dir is what CS:GO uses, right? TF2's vpks are just named differently and divided up based on what they contain.

    Oh, I thought TF2 used it also. I'm trying to decompile a model and I can't find it anywhere when I use GCFscape, which vpk should I be opening?

    tf2_misc_dir has all the model files and .vmts. tf2_textures_dir just has the .vtfs, and tf2_sound_dir should be self-explanatory.

    When I open it though it doesn't have the folder I'm looking for, but it is there in my models folder

    You mean the model in your tf/models directory? If it's outside the .vpk, then you don't need GCFScape anymore. You can go ahead and decompile it with Crowbar or whatever other tool you prefer.

    Thanks for the advice, downloading crowbar fixed it all for me.
