I don't know if it will work for HL1, but try selecting the interior face, then Alt + left mouse on the face to align.

It can be done with a not that complex entity setup. Just look at the Random event tutorial, you can easyly make random events with an env_beam.

Cool, but I don't see how it could be useful. If you want the textures it can probably be done easier in some other way.
It's easy for Valve games, but... Assassins Creed for example, there's no exporter. Or imagine you want a complete scene of a game to rip things... Bioshock for example, or Crysis... and then export them to your Source level

This program allows you to export game scenes to a model format. Only works on DX 9, it won't work on OpenGL and DX 10 games.

It just reads all the geometry of the game you're running and saves it on .obj and .3ds format. It also saves textures of the scene you're playing. Very useful too for mappers.

Notice all 3D you see is a flat texture.

And helping other is just fine when you have nothing else to spam.

If you map ---------> Buy Quad Core Q6600

Compiling uses 4 cores and compiling times are ridicously short.

wtf 160 GB HDD??? I used 160 GB the first week of my new HDD! Buy a 750 GB or 500 GB which costs 80 ? aprox!!! And forget about files size!

I would get a better graphics card too... 8800 GT is better than 9600.

And belive me about the processor, get a quad for the same price and overclock it, you will get a 800 ? processor for 130 ?.

in _normal map problem? Post #256097
normal map is the texture you use to bumpmapping. Bumpmap is the technique. But normal maps are also used to other things like parallax mapping, which is a better version of bumpmaping.

in Vis taking a long time to finish Post #256022
I heven't used areaportals yet. And for the skybox thing... you have to put sky brushes on the limits of your map, dont round it with a sky box.

Use func_detail for complex brushes, don't make large areas, and put nodraw brushes behind displacements, because displacements doesn't block VIS

in Vis taking a long time to finish Post #256016
use sv_cheats1 1 and mat_wireframe 1 on official maps to see how they're optimized, it will help you a lot.

in Vis taking a long time to finish Post #256010
"compiled" it with a quad core. I killed vis after the 10% VIS, it's an unoptimized mess of map, wtf you put a hollowed sky box around the map!!!

This map would take 1 hour to compile on my machine, but if things done correctly it wouldn't take more than 4 minutes. Go learn optimization and how Source works, because you can't make maps like this.

SolidBSP [hull 0] Error: Exceeded MAX_LEAF_FACES
Description: This error is almost always caused by an invalid brush, by having huge rooms, or scaling a texture down to extremely small values (between -1 and 1)
Howto Fix: Find the invalid brush. Any imported prefabs, carved brushes, or vertex manipulated brushes should be suspect
Here's your error. Check which solid is incorrect and delete it

in Vis taking a long time to finish Post #255946
If your compiles takes more than 2 hours, you're doing things wrong. Source VIS is quite fast compared to the goldsource one. A detailed prision doesn't take more than 3 minutes to full compile.

and that leaves a massive gap between the beginning of everything, and the beginning of us.
This giant gap is actually the creation of matter, stars, galaxies, etc etc

I don't mean there isn't a gap, I'm just saying after the Big Bang there's a big period where the stars and all the stuff on the universe were just hydrogen clouds

BUMP and...

I'm doing a car right now, it's fully working but source physics make it suck when you drive it. It always turns left/right when you're going forward, I just don't want physics to be that "realistic", why is physics messing it?

Random enviroment forces affects too much to prop_physics, nothing goes forward.

Maybe is friction what is causing it, anyone can help me?

agreed. some people are just retarded for not believing in aliens. there are millions of stars out there... there is no way we could be the only civilisation out of all of them, not even talking about the only life forms.

I would say there is a much greater liklihood of us not being the only life in our galaxy than an all-powerful beardy chap making everything we see.
Well... i was talking about UFOs... spaceships visiting our planet... that's what I don't belive in. But of course I belive there's life on the rest of the universe... probably on our galaxy.

Spike ATI does NOT support OpenGL.
With Nvidia everything just works (yes, I know that's exactly what Mac users say about Macs and sound like idiots).
OpenGL? 3.0 support - Phase 1
This release of Catalyst? introduces OpenGL? 3.0 extension support. In upcoming Catalyst? releases AMD will continue to expand its support for OpenGL 3.0 extensions. The following is a list of supported extensions in Catalyst 8.9:

? ARB_half_float_pixel

? ARB_draw_instanced

? ARB_instanced_arrays

? EXT_texture_compression_3dc

? EXT_texture_compression_rgtc

? EXT_texture_compression_latc

? EXT_texture_shared_exponent

? EXT_depth_buffer_float

? EXT_gpu_shader4

? ARB_map_buffer_range

Released 3 or 4 days ago. Since then I haven't had any XSI FPS drop, it's completely smooth. So yes, it does!

in Ati Driver .....ONNA ..... Post #255717
And you all expect a 2 months all graphics card to support a program made 10 years ago

How do you explain I run Hammer 4.0 (and you too), and XSI which uses OpenGL, without any problem?

Everything is fine except a 10 year old program, then ATI sucks for "not" supporting OpenGL (which it does). Your arguments aren't strong.

Have you ever tryed to forcing the card to run Hammer 3.5 on 3D Mode?

I won't play custom HL1 maps anymore, I enjoy source games, I like HL1 but now... it's old. Doesn't mean I'm not going to play Hl1 anymore, but I'm not going to get into the HL1 world, so no custom maps.

yes I know it's old, but nobody plays Hl1 now, so mapping for it isn't a good choice. Only Goldsource game really played is CS 1.6

Do a thing. Select 2D view on 3D view
then select 3D view.

Because I can't see in 3D view when I open Hammer 4.0. I change it to 2D view, then I turn on it to 3D and it works perfect
