The progress_enable ConCommand tells the engine to show the Half-Life 2 VGUI progress bar on the screen for the next map load operation.


For instance, if calling something like:

engine->ClientCmd("map test");

The screen will freeze while the map is loading, and won't report any progress to the player.


However, if you call progress_enable before the map command:

engine->ClientCmd("progress_enable \n map test");

The map will load and the VGUI loading screen will be shown: [1]


This can be used to make custom menus, where using the old loading panel is desired when the user loads a saved game, or starts a new one.
