New GameInfo.txt

In order to support the new filesystem changes in Chaos, modifications have been made to Source’s existing GameInfo.txt format.

Mounts Block

The mounts block is designed to supplement the user-editable mounts.kv file in cfg. This block should be used to setup the required paths for your mod.

This block should be placed in the "GameInfo" block like everything else.

An example of the mounts block:

mount
{
	// The AppID of your mod
	620
	{
		"required" "1" // If 1, the game will not launch if this couldn't be mounted.
		"head" "0" // If 1, this will add the search path to the head of the list 

		// 'update' is the name of the folder to look in
		"update"
		{
			"vpk" "pak01" // The vpk directive tells the engine to look for update/pak01_XXX.vpk
		}

		"portal2_dlc2"
		{
			"vpk" "pak01" // Add portal2_dlc2/pak01_XXX.vpk
			"dir" "maps" // Add the portal2_dlc2/maps directory to the search path
			"dir" "models" // Add the portal2_dlc2/models directory to the search path
		}

		"portal2_dlc1"
		{
			"vpk" "pak01"
		}

		"portal2"
		{
			"vpk" "pak01"
		}
	}
}

Other Considerations

When making a P2CE mod, you should omit the gamebin entry from the SearchPaths block. This will cause the game to attempt to load binaries from your mod’s bin directory instead of P2CE’s.
