|Source Mods NOT SHOWING UP!!!||Post Reply|

Yep. Some people have dealt with this problem. Of course, yes. Source mods not showing up on Steam. I downloaded them from this site, but they don't tell me which Source SDK Bases I need. I have five mods, let me show you which ones work and which do not:
Mods that work:
The Stanley Parable - HL2 Mod
Mods that don't work:
portalhot - Portal 2 Mod
aperture_ireland - Portal 2 Mod
I have mods that I keep deleting and installing, they don't work, what do I do?
I installed more mods, they crash.
I found some files to fix the mods, nothing happens in my Steam Library.
The SteamPipe patches were a failure. Is it because I need to own the full version of the game? Because some of the game's files do not appear in the folder.

I know just enough to be dangerous, so if I spout any nonsense here, I hope someone more knowledgeable will correct me. And forgive me if I turn into Captain Obvious, but even if you know this stuff, someone else might not and could find it helpful.
Once you have downloaded a new mod, you copy [or more commonly, extract] it to your Steam/steamapps/sourcemods folder. Check that folder; for every mod you think you have installed there should be a folder in the sourcemods folder; the folder name usually will be the mod name.
Each folder will have in it a text file named "gameinfo"; the first line of which will look like this:
game "The Stanley Parable" [or whatever].
Assuming you have closed and restarted Steam since you installed the mod, it should show up in your Steam game library.
Now this in no way guarantees it will run; that depends on a number of other factors.
