I’ve been watching tutorials, reading forums, reading wiki’s, but nothing HELPS!
I need someone actually there helping me, not just a video.
I want to start from the beggining, and keep in mind, you may need to do ALOT of explaining.
After awhile, I’ll get the hang of it and map on my own. But for now, I need help.
So basically you can post things in the thread to help, or you can chat on Skype or Steam.
And keep in mind, I’m as green as grass when it comes to mapping.
And also, I know this is bound to be a repeat, but the search is broken, and I don’t want to sift through the forums. Also, if your not gonna help, DO NOT POST!
If it was not so late for me, I would add you to steam right now and help you. Maybe tomorrow.
But heres a few tips.
1 - Dont carve, EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER.
2 - Make sure doorways have a frame, otherwise, they look strange.
3 - Make sure when mapping, never to accidentally hit Control + Insert, or something like that. Every time I do it crashes my hammer, no idea what actually happens though. (Im pretty clumsy though, and I am prone to crashes)
If your REALLY REALLY new, first click on the camera icon, and then click somewhere on the top left screen, then click the icon with the white box in it and make a square on the top right box, make sure that it lines up with the grid, and press ENTER. That places your square. Then you use the other boxes on the bottom to change the length and height of the box you have made.
I just clicked on your steam profile and it said it would not be found.
Try mine, and send me a friend request. I can try to help you tomorrow but I can not be sure I will be on most of the day.
Well thanks Firegod, for somereason, whenever I tried to search before it refused to work, turns out I was just using the wrong search.
Although I still do prefer an actual chat, this is still helpful.
But one thing, every time I use my brush tool (or the block tool, I.E. the tool that creates the solid pieces of the map,) It appears as wirframe. So I switch the camera to 3d textured shaded, but it still shows up as a wireframe, what am I doing wrong. I have a texture selected.
I have run the game before, and also, the 2009 version doesn’t support Half Life games, which are the levels I want to make, that way they work better in garrysmod. Also, I still have the wireframe problem.
Sorry, I miss-read. So how do I configure HL2:EP2 anyways?
