A bunch of stuff to help you map efficiently.
I'm on 7 x64 and I have no problems.
I've got a feeling this is because dropbox is failing to deliver the file properly. The first couple of time I downloaded it I got a tiny (truncated) file and it spat out the 16bit error, but since then I've redownloaded and it installed fine.
installed on w7 64 bit home edition and installing the FGD wiped all entities, etc from my files
unless im missing something, thats not meant to happen?
other than that the prop and gametype libraries are awesome!
Hmm, you mean there are no entities in the list? Could you send me a copy of GameConfig.txt located in steamapps\user\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin or send me a PM with the entire contents of the file?
yeah no entities in the list. ill take a ss and upload the file for you
EDIT: Problem solved. My current windows installment is on my D drive and everything in the GameConfig was telling hammer to read from the C drive ><. Changed everything to D and set the file to readonly to prevent hammer from overwriting it with C again and everythings working as it should now
Thanks for prompting me to flick through the config would never have noticed otherwise.
That's weird, and shouldn't have anything to do with my installer. :/ All it does is look for the stock FGD reference and replace it with mine.
yeah very wierd indeed lol. hammer kept rewriting the config to load from the c drive every time i launched it for whatever reason. readonly ftw! I'm just glad you mentioned the config before i totally reinstalled steam :blushing:
I see how useful it is, and i downloaded it(thank you so much!)
but i cant seem to find ABS_PropLibrary. where is it?
A .vmf file (aka a "Hammer-file") where ever you installed it, by default in sdk_content/tf/mapsrc I think.
I recommend reading what the installer says when you install stuff (anything!) >.<
I had to reinstall my entire steam but once i did and i got source sdk..guess what happened. I downloaded the installer and it WORKED! No idea what happened. :S
Wow. You are officially my hero for the prop one alone. You have no idea how many times I've had to go through the whole list of props looking for one thing because it was poorly named, making the filter box useless. Now I just zoom through and copy 'n' paste. I've even discovered some props that I don't think were ever used, like the non-skybox versions of some of Hydro's electrical equipment, and the metal bridge scaffolding. I may have to commit myself to using them eventually just so someone will.
Is always going to be the best thing a mapper can have. (except source sdk and source sdk base and a game to map for)
Definatly be using this a lot. Thanks!
I...love you guys.
is there a way to get the props and gametype library open in the same hammer?
Of course. Hammer can open any number of VMFs at once. Use the window menu or ctrl+tab to switch.
seriously awesome. thanks a lot!
thank you so much for this
only place i could find halloween stuff!
Updated. Not much else to say.
