Source2mod

From Valve Developer Community
Jump to: navigation, search

Source2mod is a tool that enables mods to run the old-fashioned way without being published to the workshop. Instead of being loaded as an addon to Half-Life: Alyx, mods can be run with source2mod.exe using the -game parameter. Mods can be stored both inside the Half-Life: Alyx directory, and inside the source2mods folder in steamapps.

Installing

Download the latest version of source2mod here. Extract the contents of the compacted file to:

  • Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life Alyx\

Usage

Mods can be run either by just executing source2mod.exe and manually selecting the mod, or by executing source2mod.exe with the -game parameter. For example:

  • source2mod.exe -game mysource2mod

Finishing up

Now you are able to play Half-Life Alyx standalone mods by running source2mod.exe
