It's been a long time, but we finally have a new Half-Life game! This should go without saying, but just in case you need a reminder:
Don't post spoilers for Half-Life: Alyx

HL:A is a game with restrictive hardware requirements - many of us won't be able to play it for many months or years (if ever), and a lot of people would like to stay spoiler-free, if they can. So, if you're lucky enough to have access to a VR setup (or you've just watched it on youtube) - great! But don't talk about any spoilers - for story or gameplay elements. We have an #alyx-spoilers channel in Discord if you really want to discuss it.
If you absolutely must mention something that could be a spoiler, be sure to use the spoiler tags. You MUST mark the spoiler as being for HL:A, or your post will be edited or deleted by a moderator. To mark something as a spoiler, use the spoiler tag like this:
[spoiler=Half-Life: Alyx]I don't own VR hardware[/spoiler]
It will show up like this: I don't own VR hardware
Thank you, and have a very safe and productive day.

Think I've got everything sorted so it works with no overwriting. Pleased with this! Thanks for the help guys. Also great that I now know how to package mods, exciting stuff :)
Hi Shepard!!, Wow, that´s the fix I needed ages ago!, haha. I tried something similar but, as you did say, the game crashed over and over, of course my code was, as always, intuitive (I see a piece of...
