My friend Tom asked me, and I do know its possible, how he could play Garry’s Mod with Half-Life 2: Deathmatch. I told him to just insert it into his SourceMods folder and it should be playable, but after a phone-call he told me that it wasnt appearing on his Steam games list. I know its possible to play with just HL2: DM as long as you have the proper GCFs, which he apparently does from what he’s shown me.

Please note he has the HL2 GCF files, but not the game. He has HL2: DM, and he inserted a copy of Garrys Mod 9 into his Sourcemods folder, but it isnt appearing on his Games list. I think he needs to make a shortcut, but neither of us are 100% sure about how to do such a thing. Any help would be appreciated.
