I'm here to show you how to replace Alyx with XenoAisams Hatsune Miku (♥). PART 1 ================== Download the model itself - http://gmod.gamebanana.com/skins/115554 PART 2 ------------------ NON STEAMPIPE Copy the materials and models folders into: C:/Program Files (may end with "(x86)", really doesn't matter)/Steam/steamapps/(your account name)/half life 2(or something, can't remember becuase I've used Steampipe for so long)/hl2/ STEAMPIPE Copy the materials and models folders into: C:/Program Files (may end with "(x86)", really doesn't matter)/Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life 2/hl2/custom/ Make a folder here if there isn't one and put the materials and models folders in there. ### PART 3 Find either the cell shaded or normal model files (cell shaded files will either be or start with "miku\_cell", and the files for normal shaded Miku with either be or start with simply "miku"), pick either one, and rename either "miku\_cell" or "miku" in every file with "alyx". The models folder should look like this if you're using the normal shaded Miku: players (folder, you can go ahead and remove this) alyx.dx80.vtx alyx.dx90.vtx alyx.mdl alyx.phy alyx.sw.vtx alyx.vvd miku\_cell.dx80.vtx miku\_cell.dx90.vtx miku\_cell.mdl miku\_cell.phy miku\_cell.sw.vtx miku\_cell.vvd I'll let you do the math if you're using the cell shaded Miku. #### A VISUAL GUIDE (sorta) OF DOING IT RIGHT NON STEAMPIPE The Materials and Models folders should be in: C:/Program Files (Still won't matter if it ends with "(x86)")/Steam/steamapps/(your account name)/half life 2 (or whatever)/hl2/ STEAMPIPE The Materials and Models folders should be in: C:/Program Files (Still won't matter if it ends with "(x86)")/Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life 2/hl2/custom/Miku Alyx (you don't have to name it this, just give it a name)/ Enjoy and smile! ##### FINAL NOTES - This can also work for other models based on the universal HL2 skeleton (such as the BRS model also by Xenoaisam) in the Episodes and other source games (CSS, TF2, etc) with downloaded maps that use the Alyx model, but for the episodes, some duplication and renaming of files will be required. I only have the steps to get this to work on the original HL2 because I wanted to show Miku in place of Alyx for the original HL2 for basics. - Moving lips and face!' - Animations in HL2 DM are apparently firetrucked. - Eyes in CSS are also seemingly firetrucked.

    I love the look of this mod! Umm...but I see that this hasn't been updated in a long time. How can I get this to run on half life 2 in steam?  It doesn't work at all for me.

    I can't seem to find anything with "miku\_cell" or lowercase "miku" anywhere in there unless referring to the leek. Where are those files?

    EDIT: I wrote that when I downloaded it straight from the official site. When I downloaded it here, I found them.

    > -SteamPipe install problem.-

    You forgot to make a separate folder in the Custom folder first. All skins that aren't packed in a .VPK must be placed in a sub-folder that is located within the Custom folder before they can work (example: C:/.../Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life 2/hl2/custom/my\_custom\_stuff).
    Not as serious as you'd think.

    after installing this it says

    "Tried to add C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2\custom\materials as a search path.

    This is probably not what you intended.

    Check C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life 2\hl2\custom\readme.txt for more info"

    > What the hell is with the formatting?

    You need to place a \ before the underscores to make them show properly. Otherwise, you're going to be telling the page to read any text past the underscore as italic styled font until the next underscore. Example: this _is what you did_ by mistake, while \_this is what you wanted.
