  • Try removing the autosave from the one you want and just leave it at .vmf maybe?
  • [QUOTE=Rzor;35795553]Does anyone know how to open these? [IMG]http://puu.sh/sySo[/IMG][/QUOTE] Open them like you'd open any other .vmf.
  • Isn't there an option when loading .vmf's to change the format of files to open to .vmf_autosave's?
  • Is it somehow possible to reload the current FGDs without restarting Hammer (except removing the FGD from the Options and adding it again)?
  • I've never really used Propper before, so I'm trying to set it up for Episode 2. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nyE4BY5ySUg[/media] This is the tutorial I'm using. I did exactly what he said to do, but propper.fgd isn't showing up or anything. I'm guessing I installed it wrong, but I have absolutely no idea.
  • I'm having a really annoying issue. I've setup my custom campaign in left4dead2/addons folder and it all works fine. The map thumbnail is there and so is the loading screen poster. BUT, when I exit the game, and start it again, the map thumbnail and the poster are purple/black checker board and the console says Missing vgui material vgui/maps. The thing is, 30 seconds ago it WORKED and it's not fucking missing anything it's all there and done properly. What the fuck is going on? Edit: Alright, after HOURS of getting pissed off I may have solved it, I hope at least. Renamed the main folder of my campaign to all lower case and no spaces. And so far it worked, after restarting the game twice. Edit2: Oh God it's broken again. I give up. This shit has a mind of it's own. One moment it works, then it doesn't for no reason at all, then it works again and so on. Jesus H. Christ.
  • I haven't mapped in quite a while now and I was wondering what source settings is Garry's Mod 13 going to be using? Is it Source Engine 2009 and Episode 2 or is it Source Engine MP and Team Fortress 2?

  • Hey, Any idea on why a model would show up properly in HLMV and Hammer but not in-game? I have checked the prop type, prop_static here as it has no moving parts; plus I compiled the model with $staticprop in the .qc file. I checked in the console logs see if there were any loading errors but nothing.
  • Something basic i forgot how to and google ain't helpin' How do i 'remove or disable' those big yellow model boxes if possible [img]http://img839.imageshack.us/img839/9569/20120503111325.png[/img]
  • [QUOTE=James xX;35805826]Tools - > Options -> 3DViews -> Model render distance[/QUOTE] Quite sad; I've been mapping heavily with models for the past month or so and thought that was hard coded in... until I found the setting by accident. I was so happy. :v:

  • Is there any way to have dynamic specular reflections of light sources? So basically where a texture doesn't use cubemaps and only reflects glow from light sources depending on the players position. It's hard to explain but I swear I've seen this done in the source engine.

  • [QUOTE=Firegod522;35806793]post the compile log.[/QUOTE] nvm, recompiled the model on another pc, works now
  • Is it possible to have a ambient_generic trigger after the player looks at another entity? If so what would the name of that entity be?
  • If I make turn my roads into displacements, VVIS won't take them into calculation, correct? I noticed Valve's roads are mostly displacements.
  • [QUOTE=H4wkeye;35818030]If I make turn my roads into displacements, VVIS won't take them into calculation, correct? I noticed Valve's roads are mostly displacements.[/QUOTE] I believe so, but don't quote me on it!
  • What do I need to map for Counter Strike 1.6? I already have some knowledge of hammer for Source, but I have no clue of what files or programs I need (besides the gcfs for CS and HL, ofc)
  • [QUOTE=latin_geek;35818160]What do I need to map for Counter Strike 1.6?[/QUOTE] Valve Hammer Editor 3.4 (and the 3.5 update), and the rest is just the same as Source (except textures are in WADs and you have to compile through CSG as well).
