Okay, I abandoned this project about a month ago to learn the system and after getting some more practice (thanks, twhl tutorials), I'm ready to restart development. Unfortunately, due to a hardware crash between when I scrapped the project and now, I've lost all of the work I had. I've restarted by first raiding the site of any and all BAD models I could import, and I've been messing around trying to alter the maps in Hammer 3.4. The problem is that I can't find a single accurate decompiler to save my goddamn life. I'm currently using WinBSPC which is okay, but it will regularly screw up on things that it shouldn't screw up on, like turning a trigger into a solid brush or horribly misaligning a texture. One time, it completely filled all of c1a0d's hallways with geometry that wasn't even remotely close to being there in the actual map. And there wasn't even a trigger brush or anything there, just straight-up nothing. Due to that, I haven't been able to alter any of the maps themselves. So to keep it interesting, I've decided to add a "respite" from the main campaign in between Apprehension and Residue processing, where instead of loading you into the garbage compactor, it instead loads you into some weird acid trip of maps, which will then load you into residue processing afterward. However, I can't decompile the last map of Apprehension to change the level load target, because then the cutscene won't work. So WTF do I do there?
Additionally, I am still looking for people's help. One thing I have still not yet learned how to do is create/compile models to .mdl format and have them actually, you know, work. I could possibly use some help there. I can make some models but I can't convert them to the necessary formats, and thanks to the continued limits of the tools available to me, I can't even rig models. Let alone animate them.
My attempts to change my Chromebook to Linux were completely unsuccessful, so that sucks. I do, however, have partial access to a Windows 10 PC. At this point, however, I have not been able to get it to do much, as it kinda mostly entirely sucks ASS. So, I am once again asking for help. I have put up a ModDB page that I know Urby has found, and I will link to it here
Sorry about this Berlinian wall of text, but please for the love of god at least one person HELP ME.
