How modify/recolor stuff in Source?

A Forum Thread for Source Engine

I downloaded the GCFScape but I don't find the textures of guns or stuff.

Maybe can be a stupid question but me I don't know and if someone can help me can be helpful.

    Most Source titles have a set of .VPK files in their installation directory, some of which end with _dir.VPK in the name. You'll want to check those files that end with _dir.VPK with GCFScape to take a look at whichever one has the texture files (which the filename will usually state).

    Not as serious as you'd think.
