As seen at

So yea Valve broke the SDK for some people, made this fix that will restore those black viewports and other stuff

You must use the SDK gadget inorder for this to work because running the SDK again after the patch will overwrite the patched files

What it does:

Extract the patched .bin/ directory to your sourcesdk folder

How to install:

Place the executable in the


C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\*username*\sourcesdk

folder and run, after it has been patched you must ONLY run the “hammer” “model viewer” “faceposer” from the SDK gadget because if you run the SDK again it will wipe the patched files

Common Error

Question: After i installed the patch when I run model viewer I get this error

Answer : You just re-ran the source sdk -_- which means the patch has been wiped, rerun the patch this time dont run the sdk again

I packed it all into a SFX so yea if you dont trust me just extract the files

ONLY FOR SOURCE2009 (ORANGEBOX ENGINE)

The gadget is pretty useful, though I have yet to test the fix…

fix works! nice job!

Thanks!

Thanks papa.

Damn, is there a version of this for XP?

Gotta try this, I vbct’d a map after hammer wouldn’t work and the vrad was non-extistant, maybe this will fix it.
…and I’m in business, thanks much :slight_smile:
@Squiddy it looks like it might work for XP too, but I dunno

Mine says “Configure me!” but I’m not sure what to do. Any help?

It should point to the location of the GameInfo.txt, in the case for Episode Two:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\username\half-life 2 episode two\ep2

doesnt work…the hammer won’t open…this patch has revert to the broken update ;(

Fix doesn’t work for me.

No errors when configuring the gadget nor errors in the output box on startup, nor on the patcher. The black viewports still remain.

Dont know man, btw guys you can make the files read only so you don’t need to use the gadget

One of the URLS gives a “Bandwidth Exceeded” error, and the other gives me a corrupt file, help?

Hmm ok I’ll upload it to another mirror

you can just unzip the sdk_core into the bin directories after you’ve run the SDK itself.

Bandwith all exceeded.

added more links but far out so many people downloading its crazy

This is probably a really stupid question but what’s an SDK gadget?

Gadgets are mini-programs that offer information at a glance and provide easy access to frequently used tools. Some of the gadgets that come with Windows 7 are Calendar, Clock, Weather, Feed Headlines, Slide Show, and Picture Puzzle.
