HL2 Mod Eclipse Install Problems

I recently was trying to install the Half-Life 2 Modification, Eclipse. I downloaded the .zip file from the and unzipped it into the /steam/steamapps/sourcemods/ folder just like the instructions say. Well i could NOT get it to show up in Steam.

For all of you that might stumble across this page with the same problem, here is how i finally fixed it.

Move the file eclipse.fgd, which is located in the /steam/steamapps/sourcemods/eclipse/fgd/ folder, to the main eclipse directory (/steam/steamapps/sourcemods/eclipse/).

Also, the gameinfo.txt file has an error in it (it is located in the /steam/steamapps/sourcemods/eclipse/ folder). I replaced it with the modified file below and it worked great.

You can view or download the text file HERE.

Hope this helped with your problem! I could not find a solution anywhere on the web.


P.S. The only Half-Life game i have installed in steam is Half-Life 2 Deathmatch, not sure if this makes a difference in how the file works, maybe that is why mine didn't not work untill changed? And make sure you restart steam after doing this to make eclipse show up.
