I have gotten into modding Half-Life 2 for the original Xbox but it requires compiling a GitHub project. (Something that I can't do)

I seriously hope it'll work with new maps. Someone seemed to do this with ease.
Sorry for hurrying but I don't have enough time for long speeches currently.

What in the world is with that Chinese spyware-looking fake GitHub you linked? You might want to do a virus scan or something on your PC if you're getting that instead of proper GitHub - I fixed your link to point to the real one.

Anyway, that's a .NET project, just install VS community edition (make sure .NET tools are selected when you install) and build the project. The app will be in the bin/Debug folder.

Also this should probably be a journal post rather than a thread.

Right

I will try Visual Studio, but I can't say that it'll be a success for me. I don't even know if it's free cause the one I had is a trial version. Might check it out.

And sorry for putting out an asian version of GitHub, I just had some issues that time.

"I don't even know if it's free cause the one I had is a trial version."
Visual Studio Community Edition is free.
You only need a free Microsoft account to unlock the trial. :P

When I used Visual Studio 2010 Express, it actually had a trial which required an activation key, but all I had to do was create a MS account to get access to the key.

Well I've gotten it to work yesterday, (Visual Studio and the compiling) but now I need some old Source Tools to make custom maps for it.

The original (OG) Xbox version has an old Source build and I can't run newer maps with the technique I'm using.

Maybe trying the old Custom Source Tools (cst) - they should make .bsp files for the original version of Half-Life 2 (I think).

I actually did try those but I don't know if it works on the new hammer. I don't know if the setup is different than the actual ones.

I'm sure the setup is different - the tools names are different from memory? cstbsp instead of vbsp or something like that from memory.

Yes the names are cstbsp and so on.
This is what I'm getting when I compile from hammer.
