how to make tf2 vpk files.

noticed no one has listed a tut on how to do this.

First locate vpk.exe it should be located here:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\bin.

Next you'll want to make yourself a shortcut on your desktop.

Step Two, you'll want to make sure you have your files in this order: \tf\custom\Your skin or textures\. Put your materials, models and the lot in there.

For the last step you'll want to take your folder, whatever it's called and drag and drop it on top of your vpk.exe shortcut, it will be a vpk now like in picture 2. After you're done with that, just drop the vpk in to tf\custom.

You don't really need vpks, but it is recommended to do so anyway, because the game will read vpk files faster than folders.

    I tried this and it didn't work. Could any body help me? Does it work with sound files too?

    Yes. What is the path to your sound file?

    Posted by -LOCO-jarate bomb devieus you kinda took this over like helping so if you dont mind ill just switch it to you as the owner and you can edit any part and stuff you feel needs it.

    If you must, but I don't need it since I can edit any tutorial that needs editing, as well as make my own tutorial on the matter.

    alright then ill just hold on to it but thanks for helping the people that needed it. i dont get on here as much im trying to get in to modeling i can make basic hats and stuff still need to learn more about seaming hats better and stuff. none of my hats will most likely make it on this site for a long time if at all. XD

    Posted by JukeMC I placed the .vpk file i made into /tf/customs,but it doesnt work.

    It's possible you misread a step and you didn't put the files in the VPK file in the right order.
