    lets say i bought left 4 dead at a store, would i have all the materials and models in gmod?
    in other words, do i need to buy the game on steam for the materials and models or can i get them from a box-copy.

    There's no such thing as a "non-Steam" Valve game.

    If you buy Left 4 Dead in a store Steam would be packaged inside with it.

    The version you buy on a disc IS the Steam version.

    But L4D isn't supported normally anyway, you'd need to use an addon called gm_mount2

    There is no such thing as a non-steam VALVe game, not legally anyway. If you're talking about doing so illegally then you can kindly fuck off.

    -snip- Rate me bad reading.


    Answer to your question is: Yes. After buying a boxed copy of a valve game from any game store, the game is registered to your steam account on install. You can mount it in Gmod.

    But you might need an addon called Gmount 2 to mount left 4 dead and left 4 dead 2 files on Gmod because I don't think they are mountable by default.

    There is a such thing as a non-steam VALVe game, you know the original half-life.

    ... which isn't a source engine game. And, you can activate it on steam by entering the CD key.

    Cs 1.6 uses GoldSource as well and it's the first steam game ever.

    Since we're talking hypothetically, no, I don't think such thing would work. And mow some lawns to buy the damn game, they're not so expensive anymore.

    Or do only online bought games work with Gmod.

    When you install a boxed copy, the first thing it does is install steam, no boxed copy is non-steam, in fact the only people who say they have a non-steam copy are pirates trying to tip-toe around the phrase pirated copy.

    Last I checked, Valve made all HL1 installations move to Steam for multiplayer.
