Can someone work with compiler tool source codes here? I still can't let go of the vanishing of the Xbox tools so I would want someone to work on new ones.

chipsnapper/HL2-Xbox-research

I wish I could do it but I'm not an extreme programmer yet. It's deniable but a good challenge to do this. And maybe if I'm not gonna use it then someone else might have use of it.

Pretty please?

Which vanishing do you mean?

Since access to the discord server was removed.

Oh, I didn't realise there were compile tools for the Xbox version of Half-Life 2.
What was there? Episode One studiomdl and early map compile tools (maybe Custom Source Tools a.k.a cst) should work out of the box I think - just no .xtf exporter.

They made their own bsp and rad tools(And maybe vis) from the Sin Episodes SDK. Yes the cst tools works too but there's no lightmapping in the Xbox version.

EDIT:
Segment 3

This segment has a video showcasing an old map I want to test in the console. It's called tesrt.

Ah - maybe there would be information in the original Source SDK but it was probably removed with the Episode One changes.

Yes it might have been removed. But the Xbox research repo on the top might give someone a clue how to work with making custom tools. Isn't the CSTs open sourced? Cause that would be a good start I think.

You're a programmer I believe and might be interested in working on this. (Unless you have too much to do like everyone else)

Yes CST is open source.

My plate is full and I'm not too familiar with how rad or lighting works. I want to read Michael Abrash's book at some point though.

You don't need to rush on this cause I can keep myself occupied for awhile. I don't think you have to do anything to the light baking cause if you look at the research repo the bsp lumps are different from the original. I think it's that you have to do when you or someone else will get to this.

Anyone willing to help with this? I'm still not good enough to make it alone.

Bump*

Gonna try work on this a bit and hope someone comes by to help. I'm gonna use the source code for the cst to make a custom vrad compiler that can make lightmaps appear correctly.
