VPK tool for Portal 2

Hello,

In the page it sais: "It is currently available in Left 4 Dead branch and Alien Swarm branch games.". But since Portal 2 uses VPKs too, doesn't it need to be added?

Please do correct me if I'm wrong. --Roelof 20:57, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Since the SDK is not released yet, there's no official vpk.exe available for Portal 2. I wouldn't change that sentence for now, even though you could also use the vpk.exe from the other SDKs. --Barracuda 21:09, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

Are these things even supposed to work? I can't get it to make a multi-chunk one or even do verbose output.

Okay, I figured it out, but it's very weird. You have to add files to an already existing one in order to make a multi-chunk one, and it malforms the filenames (eg. pak01_dir.vpk_089.vpk). Maybe this should be mentioned in the article? PluMGMK 04:27, 8 October 2011 (PDT)
