I know C and C++ is probably much smarter when it comes to programming-languages and modding something for the Half Life universe.
My problem is that I am kind of stuck with Java for now, since this is the language we use in my school's class, and it'd be just much smarter for me to improve my knowledge with in my leisure time (, since in other words it would to also improve my grades.)
I really want to start developing small mods for Half Life 1 & 2, but am not sure if I can use Java to help me with this task.
(And if not, which languages would help me in this case?)
-Thanks a bunch!
