Prop compability question

Hi everyone.

This has probably been asked before, but I’m giving it a shot anyway.

Yesterday I bought Garry’s Mod on Steam because of the sale. I haven’t started playing it yet, but I will get to it. There’s just one small thing on my mind: I don’t actually have any Half Life game except for Deathmatch, nor do I own The Orange Box, just Team Fortress 2. A friend of mine has a copy of The Orange Box, however (a physical copy, not a digital) and I’m wondering… if I were to install The Orange Box on my PC via his Steam Account or using his CDs, would I get access to all the props in The Orange Box in my copy of Garry’s Mod?

No, Steam has its own way of telling if that game’s been activated by an account yet or not. It’ll only work for his account to have the actual games to play. I think you may be able to get the content just for GMod, but the games will all end up as Preloaded.

And no, this isn’t warez, to anyone who’s a massive doofus.
