I’m a researcher in the process of using HL2 for an upcoming study, but I’m running into a problem. I’m building levels using Hammer (and running them in Gmod). The problem is this: I’m using the Combine Elite enemies in the level… whenever they die, they drop combine balls. And, appropriately enough, it displays “Combine’s Balls” on the right side of the screen (where it displays ammo pickup). I can’t have it saying “Combine’s Balls” when participants are playing this in the lab. So, I need a workaround:
I need to either figure out:
- how to stop the combine elite from dropping the balls when they die (for some reason, toggling the flag in the properties tab that says “Don’t drop ar2 alt fire” didn’t seem to work).
- how to stop gmod from displaying whenever ammo is picked up
Suggestions would be greatly appreciated =)
