Alright, so I’m trying to get Hammer to use Garry’s Mod to test maps instead of HL2.
So, I went into the “Build Programs” tab in Hammer’s config and changed the game executable to “$SteamUserDir\garrysmod\hl2.exe” and the maps dir to “$SteamUserDir\garrysmod\garrysmod\maps”.
Then I went ahead and changed the last line in the Run Map dialog to:
$game_exe -game garrysmod +map $file
When I try to run my map I get this in my compile window:
** Executing... ** Command: "d:\steam\steamapps\darkartanix\garrysmod\hl2.exe" ** Parameters: -game garrysmod +map "c1"
But when the game tries to start I just get the valve intro then the game quits out…it doesn’t load Garry’s Mod. All my parameters seem to be correct…To test, I opened up a command prompt in Windows and put in "d:\steam\steamapps\darkartanix\garrysmod\hl2.exe -game garrysmod +map “c1"” and G Mod came up and loaded the map fine.
Any ideas why it doesn’t work from Hammer?
