What the fuck, Hammer?

Ok I'm having major troubles on the new SDK Hammer 4.0

I want to use the HL2 Textures/Models.

So I'm told all these different methods on how to do this, I get GCFScraper and extract all these models which totally didn't work and wasted an hour of my time.

Everytime I change my gameinfo.txt it changes back when i reopen Hammer although I put it on "READ-ONLY"

So what the hell can I do? Could someone like tell me all the correct ways?

Gameinfo.txt worked for me, although the textures did not display in-game...

Modify the gameinfo.txt inside your sdk/bin/ folder (or copy it into there if it doesn't exist) and launch Hammer using the executable in /bin/ rather than via Steam - as Steam resets the file as it launches to piss you off.

It should look like this:

"GameInfo"


{


	FileSystem


	{


		// If running under Steam, use this info.


		Steam


		{


			ToolsAppId				211		// Tools will load the depots associated with this app ID in addition to the


											// normal SteamAppId.




			SteamAppId				220		// This will mount all the GCFs we need (240=CS:S, 220=HL2).




			SearchPaths


			{


				Game				|STEAM|.\cstrike_sample_content


				Game				|STEAM|.\cstrike


				Game				|STEAM|.\hl2		// Note: when ToolsAppId is mapped, we get its materials/editor stuff in here.


				Executable_Path		|STEAM|.\bin


			}


		}




		NonSteam


		{


			SearchPaths


			{


				Game				.


				Game				..\cstrike


				Game				..\hl2


				Executable_Path		..\bin


			}


		}




		//


		// This can be omitted and it will use the same directory as gameinfo.txt is in for the write path.


		//


		// WritePath	.			// This is 'gamedir' in the tools, and the filesystem will write into here.


	}


}
