Before i got HL2 i saw an article on the net about VALVe and the problems that plagued HL2 in 2003. At some point in the story it shows a picture of the HL crowbar in a glass table at VALVe. (i lost the site, if you find it tell me)

I'm about to do the same thing as a project. But i need some help.

As i dont have the SDK i need to know how to spawn the crowbar in game.
Or if someone wants a detailed guide on how to do this then sending me high quality images of the bar will help speed the project up.


====Basic Plan:====
1) Buy large crowbar.
2) Use steal wool (and/or sandpaper) to remove paint.
3) Buy special sprey paint - plastic paint used for graffiti (RED).
4) Put tape over the crowbar wherever it needs to be.
5) Paint it
6) Then hit something for about an hour with it for that used look (it's been through a lot, HL1 & 2)
7) Leave next to PC to scare friends and family ;0)

Just ask if you want some more :)

EDIT: Sorry, I forgot to put force AA on. Thats why the edges look like crap.

Yeah a couple more would be great, put AA and everyting on, Thanks for these ones they'r sweet.

For the other guys, i dont think you can buy red crowbars (in AU anyway) and if it's good enough for VALVe then my own HL2 crowbar will be sweet.

I have an ancient red crowbar that looks exactly like the HL2 one... except its 3 inches long and leaves rust/paint residue on your hands :)

Awesome...now all we need is an HEV suit so that your hands won't get stained when using the crowbar. Did anybody say tin foil?
I didnt say s***

I'm not building shit until it becomes legal to smash people's heads in.


...and even then, I'll probably just build a nail bat. Might as well go for the gold, ya?

We've got a crowbar in our warehouse downstairs...I'll go and snap a quick and dirty pic with my mobile and post it back up in a few minutes.

Force AA doesen't seem to show up on screenshots in HLMV.
Thanks man, i thought it had more scratches and stuff.

To the other guy, thats why i want to paint it with plastic paint so you dont get paint all over your hands.

It looks like a dark red i may have to mix my own paint.

I'm not sure but i may polish it, looks glossy - i can go to the shops (better not have red crowars ;0)

Reminds me of the simpsons where Bart gets one from Mr. Burns

I thought the regular crowbars came in red? That's what I've seen anyway, looks JUST like the HL crowbar.

Well this one is a shade of orange, the paint has peeled off over the years - I believe it's at least 8-10 years old that crowbar.
