Fantastic mod, but I'm so sick of seeing everyone make the same fuck up.
"Game_sounds_manifest" needs to be considered the forbidden fruit of HL2 files. It gives you more options for sound files while also completely screwing up sound files in HL2 episodes 1 and 2. If anyone is wondering why your sound isn't working in Ep 1&2, it's cause that file was tampered with to give you the sounds of the mod. It's critically important for loading character dialogue.
Please, for all future modders, don't mess around with this file. just work around with the game's limitations for your weapon sound mods. It's better than having no sound for characters at all.
At the very least, if there's a fix for this, could someone please provide it?
