Development Thread

Download Mirror (Includes source code, updated fgd file, 32-bit, 32-bit SSE and 64-bit binaries.

These tools are now deprecated, check out the far better Vluzacn's Half-Life Tools.

I think muzzleflash will test them, and maybe provide the next version of The Compilator with these tools :crowbar:

Like i said on MSN yesterday, these tools work find with the Compilator.
So go ahead and use them!

You need to rename the tools to hlcsg.exe, hlbsp.exe, hlvis.exe and hlrad.exe because the Compilator is hardcoded to look for these filenames.

Also, that new entity is pretty darn neat!

Changed thread name & stickied for everyone to give these a try. Improvements sound awesome, I'll definitely be using these if there's no notable problems.

I bet that new entity would be awesome for making grass. Have a bunch of func_illusionaries on the ground simulating blades of grass. Yet in truth only one is rendered.

That's how they did it in one of the Halos

Im pretty sure there is a significant improvement when it comes to speed, i have'nt had the time to fully test it yet.

If you map for HL1, i would definitely use these new tools. Keep software (and compile tools) up-to-date.

Did a little testing of compile times for vis and rad, for my 64-bit system on small-sized maps:

64-bit sse2 tools take a little bit longer for me, 10-20% longer than the latest official zhlt x64(non sse2) tools

32-bit sse2 tools take a bit longer than those, perhaps another 5-10%.

Anyone else done some speed testing? I'll report back the next time i compile a big map.

The increased LEAF limit would have allowed me to do more with my Lab11 level.

Hmmm... :-)

Furthermore, now that I'm actually using these tools (very tentatively at first) I note that the texture limit has been expanded from 4Mb to 32Mb!

Awesome - it will allow me to address the numerous comments I had with my Canyon_Redux level not having enough texture variety - but does the engine cope okay with all that extra texture data?

Guess I'll have to have a play and find out! :-)
