    Yeah, after I finished recording I realized that I probably should have used a lght_enviroment :p
     
  3. Hmm, I can't seem to be able to open the first .rar video...

    I tried Quicktime and WMP.

    I'm a complete newb at this and for some reason, I can never spawn in my maps to try and see if what I did worked... anyone have any idea what's wrong? (and yes, I did put an entity for info_player_terrorist/counterterrorist)

    i know what your saying bro, im having the same problem as well, with hammer and with css. When i play css, some maps the people in css turn black, and they start to glow diffrent colors. I have nvidia as well and maybe its because of that, or maybe our css has a missing or infected file. But i dont know, i have the same problems tho

    your saying that when u make a spawn and u play test the map u cant play, like it says ct's is full and also t's? Well ill try my best to tell u. When u make a spawn just make sure it doesnt touch any texture and make sure its floating and not touching the ground. Hope that helped, but if it still doesnt then i dont know.

    Yet another great set of tut's, IchI! I fiddled with the hammer interface for 20 minutes without drawing so much as a single brush, and I made a tiny crappy little map in the same time, after I'd watched those vids.... Thanks mate!

    Is anyone else having problems with the swing rope? I'm just building alot of cool functions for CSS seperately so I can use them later and one was a swing rope bridge, similar to azter except it works more like a decrepid bridge. Anyways, my rope won't link to my func_physbox that i'm using as the basis for the bridge, if I don't parent it, as it's done in the tut, it auto links to the center of the map, if I do parent it, it just doesnt show up at all. Is there any differences for CSS over DM or things that won't work? I'll keep at it incase I'm just dumb and missed something which is very likely.

    Keep up the good work, the tuts help alot.

    I figured out through a few tests that the constraints are working fine and it's basically just the visual image of the ropes being attached to the bridge. They either all attach to the center of the level or nothing.

    and azter = aztec in the last post...damn no edit

    Incase my other download links ever happens to go down, I've got a new host you can download it from.

    Dowload - Creating a 3d skybox in Hammer for Half-Life 2.

    And now that I have a new host... www.stieffers.com :)

    More tutorials. Just what I need, thank you very much.

    The community needs guys like you and I for one really appreciate it.
    I personally could do with a tut on constructing nice clean BSP. I am from the Unrealed school and Unrealed is more forgiving on BSP erros than hammer. Perhaps a tut on what not to do would be gooo

    click (or right-click, i forget) in the top corner (of your 3d viewport) where it says 'camera' or whatever, and select 'textured'.

    if that's not the problem, i dunno.

    This is odd. How come in the first video the guy's hostage and box have textures?? I do not understand how he was able to apply the textures. I followed everything he did, and I do not see the hostage. I just see the model.

    i went to the site and got the decompiler and installed it and when i tried to run it, it come up with the error:

    "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application."

    have any of you had this problem?

    also, if anyone could make a tut. to make breakable glass like in cs_office that would be great

    I need to know how you change the bombs kill radius. the map I made is pretty small.

    and how do I make a env_particlelight, im guessing this is the entity for the dust particles like you see for example in the projector room in office
