in Hi Guys - New Weapon & Looping Sound Post #232899
I managed to get all the code into the source and compile without error,, but theres one line that I cant figure out where it goes.

// custom items...

// AK74
UTIL_PrecacheOtherWeapon( "weapon_AK74" );
UTIL_PrecacheOther( "ammo_AK74" );

any ideas?

OMG I cant belive you where able to code a weapon into half-life. I've been trying to do that for sooooo long. Could you post the code or something.

As for the sound. Did you create it by yourself or take it from somthing else? If you took it from someone else, it is possible that the sound file has cue points. Basically this will loop the sound in game. Download a program called "Goldwave" and check if the sound has cue points. Its in one of the menus. If the sound has cue points than delete them.

I followed the tut, did exactly what it told me to. Mabye its because I have the 2.3 sdk and it was a tut using 2.2 sdk.

Here is the tut:

I was hopeing that mabye someone like muzzleflash could follow the tut using the 2.3 sdk and tell me what is wrong and how to fix it. It doesn't take me long. I finished the tut in 10 minutes with my low level of experence.

I didn't realise that there where tutorials on coding. I've tried a tut to add a weapon but failed. I'm getting 2 errors:

C:Documents and SettingsAaronDesktopCodecl_dllev_hldm.cpp(254) : error C2065: 'M16_FIRE1' : undeclared identifier
C:Documents and SettingsAaronDesktopCodecl_dllev_hldm.cpp(300) : error C2065: 'BULLET_PLAYER_M16' : undeclared identifier

Does anybody know how to fix?

No, c++ is a cool language, Microsoft Visual ++ 6 is microsofts modified version of the code, or so I hear.

in Quick (Easy) coding question Post #232499
Well I was reading coding for half-life before and they mentioned MSVC++6. It Kinda sucks how it is in that language and not in normal c++.

Anyways I found a compiler and gonna test it today after school. Its only 70 megs so thats awesome for me.

Whats this bittoernt stuff that you guys are all giggling about?

You can download a few files to enable model transperancy in won version. No patch will do it. Let me find you a link.

dsp? Dont you have to compile the *.cpp and *.h files? Anyway my compiler is called C++BuilderX (Name of desktop shortcut) I think its a normal c++ compiler, I got with a c++ book.

Does anyone know ehere I can get a cheap (small download size) MSVC++6 Compiler?

This is really going to sound n00by. How to I compile the source files into say "hl.dll"? I have 2.3 source sdk and I'm just experminting with the code and I cant figure out how to compile into a simple file. I know how to use my compiler ........ I think I am adding the wrong files or something.

Gold Source is in c++ right? Not MSVB?

in Right Click = Grenade throw? Post #231812
You Could firewaler? That would be awesome!!!

Well here is an update, I have binded the the rmb to instantly swap to the grenade but the next step it to actually also through the grenade aswell. My question now is are you able to bind the rmb to more than one command, eg: bind "mouse2" "+gren1, +attack"

And thankfully the mod I'm wanting to do this for is using spirit of half-life. To be honest most people should be using it, soooo many features.

in Right Click = Grenade throw? Post #231747
I was wondering if there was a way to make the right mouse button throw a grenade (with out coding)? Maybe there is an impulse command that throws a grenade and I can bind it to the right mouse button?

Wow, I have to turn all my settings down low to be able to play half-life 2 and the coastal/highway maps looked awsome. Just as detailed, mabye, as the rest of the game. The fog looked good imo. Probley because of the low settings :(

in Large Scale Maps Post #230837
Wow heaps of replys guys good job :) !

Anyways as a guide it would be about as big as the bridge in half-life 2, probley as long to, 10 minutes or shorter. Its theamed in a city Called "Hexam" a fictinal city in my mod 'reddawn'. The City is huge, like much bigger than any other city in real life and I think I have pulled of this theame quite well. The Bridge is extreamly high so not many buildings are visable. There is fog to so I can have a draw distance. I just think it would be annoying for the player to run into several trigger_changelevels while on the bridge, unlike the Bridge in half-life 2 where there was like only one, or none at all I cant remember.

But I have also encounted a problem. Its night time when youre on the bridge and the fog looks terriable at night. I'm using spirit of Half-life's fog and yeah.

P.S The bridge is there to demonstrate the Large Scale of this city, is cool and would be really cool ....... runs away

The bridge has to be big. The whole city is of a very large scale. And how would I use the teleporter?

in Large Scale Maps Post #230807
I'm makeing a mod and in one level there is this highway bridge that you get on. The highway bridge is very high up in the sky and there is fog so the visible distance is about 3000 units. Ir would be nice to walk along the bridge without hitting a level transition every say 5000 units. Compile times dont bother me and I can override the engine limits (other than the grid size) to make this level. As for the loading times, i'm pretty sure it will still be less than half-life 2.

I was wondering if there is anyway that you can expand the grid in hammer 3.5 so that there is more building space. I know that for the source version of hammer the grid space is gigantic and you know, I would like to get that much space for half-life 1.

The engine limits have been increased, you can specify the texture and light data now instead of haveing an unmovable limit, lighting and shadows are so much better, faster compile times, lower frame rates. The list goes on.

in (noob) need help with compliing Post #229755
You have quite a few errors there, don't build over or near the edge of the grid, and a brush with orign on it must be an entity. Other than that, you should download the zhlt tools and get rid of those old tools you have.
