Mapping Gmod without Orange box = what?

I don’t own orange box, all i have is HL2:DM,CS:S, HL2:LC, Gmod, and a portal demo. So when in Source SDK, i select orange box, but then i have no options… (for obvious reasons). BUT! Can i still make a map without any loss in any kind of way? If there is name them please :smiley:

You don’t have any Orangebox content is all…

In steamapps/<your steam name>/sourcesdk/bin/orangebox/bin, find and open GameConfig.txt.
If there is anything there, delete everything, and paste this:


"Configs"
{
	"Games"
	{
		"Garry's Mod"
		{
			"GameDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\garrysmod\garrysmod"
			"hammer"
			{
				"GameData0"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\garrysmod\garrysmod\garrysmod.fgd"
				"TextureFormat"		"5"
				"MapFormat"		"4"
				"DefaultTextureScale"		"0.250000"
				"DefaultLightmapScale"		"16"
				"GameExe"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\garrysmod\hl2.exe"
				"DefaultSolidEntity"		"func_detail"
				"DefaultPointEntity"		"info_player_start"
				"BSP"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\vbsp.exe"
				"Vis"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\vvis.exe"
				"Light"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\vrad.exe"
				"GameExeDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\garrysmod"
				"MapDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\sourcesdk_content\garrysmod\mapsrc"
				"BSPDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<your steam name>\garrysmod\garrysmod\maps"
				"CordonTexture"		"BLACK"
				"MaterialExcludeCount"		"0"
			}
		}
	}
	"SDKVersion"		"3"
}


Obviously, replace <your steam name> with your actual Steam name, and I’m assuming that you have Steam installed in C:\Program Files. If not, I hope you know what to do.

So if i map under HL2:ep1 pretty much everyone can use the map? But when I run it as that all the views in hammer are messed up :S. I’m positive about that cause I’m doing a little bit of mapping on CS:S.

P.S. How can i upload photos to show you? :open_mouth:

EDIT: Okay, its all fixed. Thank-you so much “_kilburn” +1
