    My downloads aren't working anymore for some reason I am told so please refer to this page on this thread for a couple of different download links

    You should be able to launch empires the normal way after these files are installed.

    Also steam fixed the userid ticket issue so Epic and all other VIPER servers are working now if you have the gcfs installed

    make sure you save the files somewhere else as a backup because every time I restart steam I lose the files again.

    Thanks, downloading now. Will these eventually replace the ones downloaded at steam games?

    What is the total size of the zips after compression? I remember that I had corrupted gcfs that were the proper size and all. Steam could still mount them with no complaints. They would 7zip down to ~5mb after 30 mins of max compression.

    Probably not for games you should pay for. However everything in there you can get free from steam anyhow. Can't see it's a problem

    I spoke to a few players who downloaded them and installed them and they said it worked fine.

    and it worked for me as well.

    When I get my crashed HD connected again I will pull the corrupted GCFs and 7zip them again so ppl can download 5mb instead of 500mb. :) They are corrupted but, as said... steam will mount them and the game will load fine.

    Are they corrupted or are they the mini GCFs ? (empty with just file structure)
    Those can be made easily.

    They are corrupted since 3/4 of it is bad but, the remaining 1/4 are still extractable.

    Because that's where the old .gcfs files are stored. :)

    The first file won't even download without errors. It downloads but it won't extract without an error because the archive is corrupt. The source 2007 shared models.gcf file is blank. Tried re-downloading five times in a row.
