  • lets say i bought left 4 dead at a store, would i have all the materials and models in gmod? in other words, do i need to buy the game on steam for the materials and models or can i get them from a box-copy.
  • There's no such thing as a "non-Steam" Valve game. If you buy Left 4 Dead in a store Steam would be packaged inside with it.

  • The version you buy on a disc IS the Steam version. But L4D isn't supported normally anyway, you'd need to use an addon called gm_mount2

  • There is no such thing as a non-steam VALVe game, not legally anyway. If you're talking about doing so illegally then you can kindly fuck off.
  • -snip- Rate me bad reading. Answer to your question is: Yes. After buying a boxed copy of a valve game from any game store, the game is registered to your steam account on install. You can mount it in Gmod. But you might need an addon called Gmount 2 to mount left 4 dead and left 4 dead 2 files on Gmod because I don't think they are mountable by default.

  • There is a such thing as a non-steam VALVe game, you know the original half-life.

Since we're talking hypothetically, no, I don't think such thing would work. And mow some lawns to buy the damn game, they're not so expensive anymore.
  • Hes just asking will he be able to mount his boxed copy version of L4D on Garrysmod. Or do only online bought games work with Gmod.

  • Aren't there a few source non-steam games though? Those Dinohunters and a few others
