Mod does not appear in game list

The mod installed in D:\Steam\steamapps\SourceMods
I did restart my steam client and pc also, nothing changes it just doesnt appear there.
I've downloaded the full thing, unless the patch installer takes over 700mb of space smile.
So any ideas what's wrong?

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

My apologies, I honestly can't believe I missed that. I'll try not to let it happen again.

In your SourceMods folder, do you have a folder called "portal prelude" or a load of folders (maps, models, materials etc.)? If so, make a portal prelude folder and shift them all in there.

If you've got a folder called "portal prelude" are all of those folders in there or do you have another "portal prelude" folder? If so, move that folder into the main SourceMods directory.

Also, I noticed you've got Steam installed on D. Is that the same drive that Portal is on? If so, is it a Steam version of Portal.

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

Yes, everything with steam is in D since i use C only for windows and programs, and since steam has games in it i put it in D. Yes mod has a separate folder in sourcemods folder.

No there is no prelude folder in the prelude folder. <--- tricky answer.

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

Is there a gameinfo.txt file in the mod folder?

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

In that file you should have:

"GameInfo"
{
    game                        "Portal: Prelude"
    title                         "Portal: Prelude"
    type                         singleplayer_only
   
    nodifficulty                1
    hasportals                    1
    nocrosshair                    1
    nomodels                    1
   
    developer                    "Nicolas 'NykO18' Grevet"
    developer_url                "http://www.portalprelude.com"
    manual                        "http://www.portalprelude.com/forum"
    icon                        "resource/prelude"
   
    FileSystem
    {
        SteamAppId                400
        ToolsAppId                211
       
        SearchPaths
        {
            Game                |gameinfo_path|.
            Game                portal
            Game                hl2
        }
    }
}

If you don't, get rid of everything in the file, paste that in and restart Steam.

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

Did you download Prelude from one of the mirrors listed on the download page?

Most of these people don't even have Portal installed or at least not in a legal way.
Believe me, I receive a lot of boring emails.

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

Hi, I have a similar problem, so I didn't make another topic.
I installed everything (from Orange Box) like this:

D:/Games/Orange Box
D:/Games/Orange Box/SteamApps/SourceMods

Is there a way, that the problem's with the "Orange Box" folder, instead of "Steam"?
It did it automatically, and if possible, I don't want to reinstall everything...

Oh, by the way, the installed games through Steam:
- Hl2
- HL2 - Ep 1
- HL2 - Ep 2
- HL2 - Lost Coast
- Portal
- TF2

- Source SDK
- Source SDK Base
- Source SDK Base  - Orange Box

Re: Mod does not appear in game list

I don't understand how you're able to install the Orange Box this way.
It should be in the Steam folder... or maybe that the retail version installs itself like this, I don't know.
I can't help, I know nothing about this kind of installation.

It does not.  I own the retail version and it installed in the C:\Program Files\Steam\[etc.] directory like normal Steam games.
