Also try propper 0.22 if it doesn’t work.

if what dosent work? propper?

No, your car battery.

Yes Propper

it keeps having that same error, and i just cant seem to get it to work:/ no matter what material i use

Use the 0.22 version of propper.

Where can I download that?

here

intertesting. now when i spawn a propper entity (there are MUCH fewer of them now) its values are in smartedit, and they are shown as obsolete signs…

Restart hammer.

ok, i found out that that versions of proppers entities are named differently. i try compiling it with the edited vbsp, and itdos the same thing that happened when i ran the newer version through it. that version also has a ton of less editing options, so im working on making the newer version now. anyone know what might be causing this?

EDIT;
this is the putput i get when i compile it from within hammer

Bump, I seriously need help with this :confused:

You downloaded the orangebox version right?

I downloaded ALL versions from the wiki.

Did you install every version?

Yes, I merged the downloaded version of the sourcesdk folder into my sourcesdk colder as it told me. I have the entities and everything as well.

Bumpty bump bump :confused:

Here is what you do for Propper. Do not make a MAP but make your prop with Propper and then add the OP\ptions entity and if you want it to be a physics prop, add the physics entity. Do not create a map and then the props and have the entities required. I am not really fully understanding what you are saying, but this is where I am coming from.

Google Propper and find the Wiki page on how to do it. Also, if you check my youtube page soon I will have a tutorial up on it for the propper.

My new mega map has a LOT of physics props in it so I use propper quite often for I cannot work Milkshape for my fucking life lol.

If you need more help or more defined help, add me on Steam. Username SiloSloth
