Setup the SDK as desribed in http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Compiling_under_Linux but obtained with "Modify Half-Life 2 Multiplayer" instead of "Source code only (advanced users only)". Obtained and compiled as of Sunday, February the 15th, 2009. Using Debian Lenny.

=== AI_Activity.cpp assert on startup ===

==== ../dlls/lightglow.cpp:57: error: 'SendProxy_Angles' was not declared in this scope ====
Just before the "// Multiplayer" line, add the following:
+
Ambiguous function pointer. One probable fix could be to add '0, ' before the inclined call and add an 'extern ' declaration of the inclined function.
  
ADD_ACTIVITY_TO_SR( ACT_MP_STAND_IDLE_PORTALGUN );
+
==== /usr/include/c++/3.4/limits:292:22: macro "max" requires 2 arguments, but only 1 given ====
ADD_ACTIVITY_TO_SR( ACT_MP_RUN_IDLE_PORTALGUN );

In file included from /usr/include/c++/3.4/memory:61, from /usr/include/c++/3.4/string:48, from ../dlls/../public/stdstring.h:26, from ../dlls/ai_playerally.h:18, from ../dlls/npc_talker.h:34, from ../dlls/npc_talker.cpp:10
ADD_ACTIVITY_TO_SR( ACT_MP_CROUCH_IDLE_PORTALGUN );
+
Maybe fixed by commenting out #include <set> in ../dlls/npc_talker.h
ADD_ACTIVITY_TO_SR( ACT_MP_WALK_CROUCH_PORTALGUN );
 
ADD_ACTIVITY_TO_SR( ACT_MP_GESTURE_RANGE_ATTACK_PORTALGUN );

 +
In file included from ../dlls/../game_shared/gamestats/ep1_gamestats.cpp:7. Probably because public is not part of the path. Probably also because of case sensitivity.

That's all the compile bugs I encountered.  Granted I was using my mod as a basis, so there might be other compile bugs I didn't see thanks to other fixes in my mod.  If anyone else can confirm that's the complete list of fixes for a fresh SDK checkout, please do so.

=== dm_powerhouse lamps lay on the ground ===
 +
This was first reported on the [http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=5119212&perpage=1 Steam Forums HL2 bug list], including [http://img391.imageshack.us/my.php?image=dmpowerhouse0000dt1.jpg this screenshot].
  
The lack of mathlib results in "undefined symbol: _Z9AngleDiffff" at runtime.  There used to be a file called public/mathlib.cpp that exported that symbol, however that file is now complete gone and seemingly has no replacement.  (There is a mathlib.lib which is of course useless for non-MSVC.)  It's not clear what Valve intended here.
+
Since updating the SDK the bug now occurs in my mod.
  
'''Partial Fix'''
+
It's been obvious for a long time that the dm_powerhouse map was broken (see [[#dm_powerhouse_lights_never_slow_down]]).  Looks like Valve was attempting to out-think broken maps, but only made things worse.  See the [[#dm_powerhouse_lights_never_slow_down]] KI for the real dm_powerhouse bug fix.  Meanwhile here's the bugfix to undo the latest SDK breakage:

* Add back the src/public/mathlib.cpp file that the new SDK deleted.
+
=== IsFrameLocking assert ===
* Add back the src/public/mathlib.cpp file that the new SDK deleted.
+
If you commented out the <code>AssertOnce( pModelCache->IsFrameLocking() );</code> asserts, uncommented them. According to Jay at Valve the core is allowed to delete a GetModelPtr() pointer at any time unless you're inside the lock, therefore all of these fixes below are potential crashers.
* Add the "..\game_shared\choreoevent.cpp" block back to the hl_sdk.vcproj.
 
* Add the "..\game_shared\chorescene.cpp" block back to the hl_sdk.vcproj.
 
  
Unfortunately then you end up missing a function called <code>void VectorRotate( const Vector &in1, const QAngle &in2, Vector &out )</code> which never existed in the SDK.  I could try to reverse engineer it, but for the moment I'm too tired of dealing with Valve's breakage.

--- src/cl_dll/prediction.cpp 26 Aug 2006 21:24:24 -0000 1.4
When you are running a multiplayer mod, a call to <code>HL2Gamerules()</code>, without checking if the object valid, will probably crash. This happens because the function tries to static_cast <code>g_pGamerules</code> to the class <code>CHalfLife2</code>. However the gamerules of multiplay_gamerules.cpp or hl2dm_gamerules.cpp is used. As a result the casting fails and any calls to it crash. To fix this, you need to add a check to every call to this function.

=== HL2Gamerules() ===
 +
When you are running a multiplayer mod, a call to <code>HL2Gamerules()</code>, without checking if the object valid, will probably crash. This happens because the function tries to static_cast <code>g_pGamerules</code> to the class <code>CHalfLife2</code>. However the gamerules of multiplay_gamerules.cpp or hl2dm_gamerules.cpp is used. As a result the casting fails and any calls to it crash. To fix this, you need to add a check to every call to this function.

=== Bullet impact sounds do not play to clients ===

In the <code>PlayImpactSound</code> function in <code>cl_dll/fx_impact.cpp</code>, replace:

C_BaseEntity::EmitSound( filter, NULL, pbulletImpactSoundName, pdata->soundhandles.bulletImpact, &vecOrigin );

with:

C_BaseEntity::EmitSound( filter, NULL, pbulletImpactSoundName, &vecOrigin );

This can also be observed as hearing the <code>WateryDeath.Warn</code> soundscript entry played while shooting at models with the "Weapon" surfaceprop when hosting a listen server in a map using level-specific soundscripts.

Note even if you apply these fixes, gcc 4 still won't work.  However both of these fixes seem reasonable on 3.x as well.

Hi, everyone would of no doubt noticed that running against a wall(strafing and moving forward works best) makes you run really fast. If anyone has played kreedz climbing yet(I used to code for it) you might of noticed moving against walls is jerky. I think when I was adding some things to the movement I made the server and client disagree on what speed the player is moving at. Has anyone sound why players in source do this? where the boost might be clamped to normal levels? If so I'd love to know, and it would be good to know for bg2 as well, people who play it complain a lot of it

== bin/tier0_i486.so fails to shut down when using threads ==
+
Looks like the only other issue was this asm change. Apparently gcc did something slightly backwards incompatible in 4.x.
It looks like this would be fixed if Valve would recompile bin/tier0_i486.so with the -fuse-cxa-atexit gcc option. I can't wait for Valve to fix this, so instead:
 
  
'''Workaround:'''  In the mean time what I've done with my mod is add an <code>alarm(10);</code> to the bottom of <code>void CServerGameDLL::DLLShutdown(void)</code> so that if bin/tier0_i486.so fails to exit, it will be killed.

== Getting the SDK to work under -Wall -Werror ==
 
If you're a professional programmer with any familiarity with GNU then the first thing you probably did was attempt to compile the SDK with -Wall -Werror, and were then disappointed by all the violations in Valve's code out of the box.  Here's a list of fixes to make this work.  (This list is by no means complete - I fixed many problems before I realized this would be something worth wiki-ing.)
 
 
I just noticed Valve uses -fpermissive!  *barf*!  So, if anyone out there had already noticed that, I now have a work in progress to fix all the scary hacks that -fpermissive would normally error on... coming soon. --[[User:Bloodykenny|Bloodykenny]] 20:46, 25 Oct 2005 (PDT)
 
  
=== offsetof errors ===
 
Unfortunately, these are due to a bug in gcc, noted here: [http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16618 http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=16618].  It was fixed in 3.4.2, but I haven't tried upgrading to 3.4.2 yet, as it is likely to break the linkage to Valve's .so files.
 
  
Update - I'm now using gcc 3.4.4 and everything seems fine.  I had to rebuild glibc and such in a sandbox, but it was no big deal, and it fixes the offsetof errors.  Will update again if I ever see an issue, but it's been a while now with no problem. --[[User:Bloodykenny|Bloodykenny]] 20:44, 25 Oct 2005 (PDT)

=== Garbage after #endifs ===
  
== Server: Host_Error: SV_PackEntity: SendTable_Encode returned false (ent %d). ==
+
A common mistake in the SDK, obviously trivial to fix, but here for your conveniance:
Here %d will be replaced by whatever the entity number is that caused the error.  No single entity is allowed to write more than 2KB to the network stream.  This error happens when an entity overflows that buffer.
 
  
'''Fix:'''  If you need an entity to occasionally transmit more than 2K of data, you will need to split it up into multiple entities, each transmitting part of the data. You should ensure of course that no entity -consistently- transmits 2K of data, as it would bog down your network. Some entities might want to send a large amount on map initialization etc, however. Another possible workaround for some situations (may not always be possible), is to update data a little bit each frame, so that no one frame has a big change.

The patch to c_te_explosion.cpp was rolled into the 2006-08-04 SDK update, however it does not fix the issue.  The issue still existsMy current speculation is that this is a bug in core or in the maps, but hard to say which.

The implications of this SDK bug are not at all clear, but in debug mode you'll get an assert, and in release mode it will presumably segfault.  The patch assumes anything negative or really large is bogus and dumps it.

This should fix local servers.  For connecting to a remote multiplayer server, the only issue appears to be that you can't switch to another window and then switch back to HL2.  Doing so causes HL2 to never render progress info until load is fully complete.  That seems to be an HL2 core bug unrelated (though very similar in appearance) to the fix above.

== Physics models show up darker under switchable lights ==
+
This should fix local servers.  For connecting to a remote multiplayer server, the only issue appears to be that you can't switch to another window and then switch back to HL2.  Doing so causes HL2 to never render progress info until load is fully complete.  That seems to be an HL2 core bug unrelated (though very similar in appearance) to the fix above.
  
Switchable lights are not taken into account for visibility of physics models when Source starts a map. So whenever a physics model is mostly lit by switchable lights, it will show up much darker when the map starts.
+
== USE_VCR_MODE linker errors ==
 +
This is because Valve wants to be able to somehow replay all of the things that happen in a mod and get back the exact same output. I'm still confused as to how that would work, or what the value really is, but anyway, if you need things like threading, you'll hit these errors.
  
If the switchable lights are turned off and on again, or if a physics model is moved, then the visibility of this physics model is automatically fixed. But if the map is saved and reloaded, all physics models under switchable lights become darker again.
+
My mod needed threading and commenting these out has never caused any issue. Though apparently it means my mod can't use VCR mode.

I've been chasing a fix for this for months for Dystopia, when two players collide with each other there's massive prediction errors and to the player it looks like they're jerking back and forth. It can mean real trouble when two players attempt to get through a doorway or something, and it sucks if you're trying to do a good melee system.
 
  
Anyways, I found out the cause of this problem is on the server, when it runs a players movement code, it first unlags all the other players on the server, presumably to help predict player vs. player collisions. The problem is, because two players have different pings, there's no authoritative point of impact for the collision, so the jerking around you see is caused by this unlagging. Now down to the fix, which is really simple:

This should be fixed in 2009 according to: [http://store.steampowered.com/news/4015/].

 +
== Cannot re-ignite entities ==
 +
There's a glich in SDK that does not call Extinguish() on entity once fire goes out, because it always returns NULL pointer, this causes inability to ignite same entity again. To fix this without changing header go to EntityFlame.cpp line 286.

{{Warning|Not only can you re-ignite entities in latest SDK version, but the game will crash if this edit is applied.}}

Latest revision as of 06:45, 26 July 2016

Note:This page is for the SDK code. For the SDK tools, see Source SDK Known Issues. For the HL2 core, see the Core Known Issues List or the HL2 Bugzilla.
The patches listed here are in unidiff format.

Contents

First pass at compiling server_hl2mp-2005.vcproj under Linux

Preconditions

Setup the SDK as desribed in http://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Compiling_under_Linux but obtained with "Modify Half-Life 2 Multiplayer" instead of "Source code only (advanced users only)". Obtained and compiled as of Sunday, February the 15th, 2009. Using Debian Lenny.

Issues

../dlls/lightglow.cpp:57: error: 'SendProxy_Angles' was not declared in this scope

Ambiguous function pointer. One probable fix could be to add '0, ' before the inclined call and add an 'extern ' declaration of the inclined function.

/usr/include/c++/3.4/limits:292:22: macro "max" requires 2 arguments, but only 1 given

In file included from /usr/include/c++/3.4/memory:61, from /usr/include/c++/3.4/string:48, from ../dlls/../public/stdstring.h:26, from ../dlls/ai_playerally.h:18, from ../dlls/npc_talker.h:34, from ../dlls/npc_talker.cpp:10 Maybe fixed by commenting out #include <set> in ../dlls/npc_talker.h

../game_shared/gamestats/ep1_gamestats.h:14:27: tier1/UtlDict.h: No such file or directory

In file included from ../dlls/../game_shared/gamestats/ep1_gamestats.cpp:7. Probably because public is not part of the path. Probably also because of case sensitivity. Fix:

ln -s ../public/tier1 tier1
ln ../public/tier1/utlbuffer.h tier1/UtlBuffer.h
ln ../public/tier1/utldict.h tier1/UtlDict.h

../dlls/episodic/grenade_hopwire.h:14:20: sprite.h: No such file or directory

In file included from ../dlls/episodic/grenade_hopwire.cpp:8 Fix:

ln ../game_shared/Sprite.h ../game_shared/sprite.h

The compile completed after these issues in the first pass.

Issues only with SDK 2006-08-04

Assert whenever Gravity Gun is holding a crate/barrel that explodes

See bugzilla [1].

Assert: no supported muzzle flash for the type specified

This is apparently a bug in the HL2 model so looks like there's nothing to be done but comment out the assert.

dm_powerhouse lamps lay on the ground

This was first reported on the Steam Forums HL2 bug list, including this screenshot.

Since updating the SDK the bug now occurs in my mod.

It's been obvious for a long time that the dm_powerhouse map was broken (see #dm_powerhouse_lights_never_slow_down). Looks like Valve was attempting to out-think broken maps, but only made things worse. See the #dm_powerhouse_lights_never_slow_down KI for the real dm_powerhouse bug fix. Meanwhile here's the bugfix to undo the latest SDK breakage:

IsFrameLocking assert

If you commented out the AssertOnce( pModelCache->IsFrameLocking() ); asserts, uncommented them. According to Jay at Valve the core is allowed to delete a GetModelPtr() pointer at any time unless you're inside the lock, therefore all of these fixes below are potential crashers.

Will not compile on Linux

This was partially moved to Source SDK Known Issues#Linux_Support

Here's a better fix for the Linux build breaking without -O. Apparently using always_inline without -O intentionally breaks on GCC. There's no real need for this though - you're better off letting the compiler optimize at will anyway.

That's all the compile bugs I encountered. Granted I was using my mod as a basis, so there might be other compile bugs I didn't see thanks to other fixes in my mod. If anyone else can confirm that's the complete list of fixes for a fresh SDK checkout, please do so.

Will not link fully on Linux

The lack of mathlib results in "undefined symbol: _Z9AngleDiffff" at runtime. There used to be a file called public/mathlib.cpp that exported that symbol, however that file is now complete gone and seemingly has no replacement. (There is a mathlib.lib which is of course useless for non-MSVC.)

Update: this was apparently an oversight - Valve intended to switch everything to libs...

Fix: Download these linuxlibs that Mike Durand provided (careful not to overwrite your existing Makefile), and apply this patch.

GameInfo.txt issues

This was moved to Source SDK Known Issues#SDK_Launcher_Issues

Animations are jittery

Open cl_dll/c_baseentity.cpp and remove the following code:

if ( !IsSelfAnimating() ) 
{ 
        m_flAnimTime = engine->GetLastTimeStamp();       
}

HL2Gamerules()

When you are running a multiplayer mod, a call to HL2Gamerules(), without checking if the object valid, will probably crash. This happens because the function tries to static_cast g_pGamerules to the class CHalfLife2. However the gamerules of multiplay_gamerules.cpp or hl2dm_gamerules.cpp is used. As a result the casting fails and any calls to it crash. To fix this, you need to add a check to every call to this function.

Bullet impact sounds do not play to clients

In the PlayImpactSound function in cl_dll/fx_impact.cpp, replace:

C_BaseEntity::EmitSound( filter, NULL, pbulletImpactSoundName, pdata->soundhandles.bulletImpact, &vecOrigin );

with:

C_BaseEntity::EmitSound( filter, NULL, pbulletImpactSoundName, &vecOrigin );

This can also be observed as hearing the WateryDeath.Warn soundscript entry played while shooting at models with the "Weapon" surfaceprop when hosting a listen server in a map using level-specific soundscripts.

use of non-standard _stricmp in portable code block

Can someone confirm whether this patch works with a fresh SDK? I've removed Valve's inappropriate Makefile defines (see -Wall section) which may be what revealed this, or it might just be another Linux compilation DOA.

This stuffs up vc2003 again, and chucks up 1000's of warnings if you #ifdef WIN32 or #ifdef LINUX - only use this fix if you are in need of it! --Amckern 23:22, 2 Oct 2006 (PDT)

This error happens because Valve never made crossbow reload animations for the playermodels, but told it to use ACT_HL2MP_GESTURE_RELOAD_CROSSBOW in the acttable anyway.

"Extra App ID set to 211, but no SteamAppID" while debugging

This issue happens when mounting multiple GCFs. The fix is to mount appid's in the negative. ie: -320 instead of 320.

Wasted entitygroundcontact

It also seems that the code lets every client on the server calculate the minimum and maximum height of each animating entity and sends it to the server, while the server doesn't really need it. Each client calculates the same so it's waste of bandwidth.

It's better to test these changes very good because it's possible it may break something.

Note: Why not instead of compleatly removing it, having only 1 player to calculate it ? (if its a listen server then its the local player, if its a dedicated one what about the player who has been on the most :P/any random player ?) --Filip 06:43, 6 December 2012 (PST)

Mod fails to compile with gcc 4.x

Note:Even if you apply these fixes, gcc 4 still won't work. However both of these fixes seem reasonable on 3.x as well.

Fix: First pass problem is a code bug - not sure if this would've shown up in gcc 3.x if Valve didn't use the horribly evil -w option, but it certainly looks like invalid code to reference a friend function without a declaration.

Wall Boosting Exploit

Hi, everyone would of no doubt noticed that running against a wall(strafing and moving forward works best) makes you run really fast. If anyone has played kreedz climbing yet(I used to code for it) you might of noticed moving against walls is jerky. I think when I was adding some things to the movement I made the server and client disagree on what speed the player is moving at. Has anyone sound why players in source do this? where the boost might be clamped to normal levels? If so I'd love to know, and it would be good to know for bg2 as well, people who play it complain a lot of it as well(just the boost, not client prediction jerks).

sdkshaders: fix for spaces in path

Issue: Any attempt to compile the SDK shaders for a mod with spaces in the path name results in failure:

(ie: "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\MODNAME\src\src\sdkshaders")

This is due to the fact that the perl scripts and bat files have not been properly modified to handle spaces in the path.


Fix: Ray "VisualPhoenix" Barbiero has provided the following patches:

Note:These patches have been tested on paths with and without spaces.

Getting the SDK to work under -Wall -Werror

If you're a professional programmer with any familiarity with GNU then the first thing you probably did was attempt to compile the SDK with -Wall -Werror, and were then disappointed by all the violations in Valve's code out of the box. Here's a list of fixes to make this work. (This list is by no means complete - I fixed many problems before I realized this would be something worth wiki-ing.)

I just noticed Valve uses -fpermissive! *barf*! So, if anyone out there had already noticed that, I now have a work in progress to fix all the scary hacks that -fpermissive would normally error on... coming soon. --Bloodykenny 20:46, 25 Oct 2005 (PDT)

offsetof errors

These are due to a bug in gcc. It was fixed in 3.4.2, and gcc 3.4.4 is now known to work fine and fixes the issue.

One should always downcast explicitly. This squelches useful warnings, and self-documents your intent to downcast.

Missing EOF linefeeds

First you'll need to `cvs rm -f mod/src/dlls/worker_scientist.h` since that file is blank, unused, and will make the script below not run. :)

Then run:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w

use strict;
foreach (`find mod -name *.cpp -or -name *.h`) {
    chomp;
    open(F, "+<", $_) or die "$! on $_";
    seek(F, -1, 2) or die "$! on $_";
    my $c;
    read(F, $c, 1) or die "$! on $_";

First big pass at -Wall and consistent code

Convert stricmp, _alloca etc to Q_stricmp, stackalloc versions. Fix basetype declarations like 0 to 0.0f when appropriate. Comply with STL min/max. Comply with POSIX/BSD naming inline (and appropriate #ifdefing) in all cases where a cross-platform compatibility utility function does not yet exist.

You'll need to remove the inappropriate -D defines in the Makefile for the str/printf/alloc things. Those are now fixed by using the correct functions in the code to begin with, however I don't have a patch for the Makefile included in the file below.

I have uploaded this file for BloodKenny at -

http://www.nigredostudios.com/temp/patch_hl2_sdk_wall_sanity.txt

Right click save as - amckern

Second pass - fix unreliable and error/warning prone min/max/clamp macros with STL calls and normal templatization:

http://aoa.gamemod.net/patch-warning-minmax.txt

Server: Host_Error: SV_PackEntity: SendTable_Encode returned false (ent %d).

Here %d will be replaced by whatever the entity number is that caused the error. No single entity is allowed to write more than 2KB to the network stream. This error happens when an entity overflows that buffer.

Fix: If you need an entity to occasionally transmit more than 2K of data, you will need to split it up into multiple entities, each transmitting part of the data. You should ensure of course that no entity -consistently- transmits 2K of data, as it would bog down your network. Some entities might want to send a large amount on map initialization etc, however. Another possible workaround for some situations (may not always be possible), is to update data a little bit each frame, so that no one frame has a big change.

Server: The client's health variable is pointlessly sent across the wire twice.

Fix: Diff And Patch

  • There is no line 1888 within c_baseplayer.cpp in the stock MP, or SP SDK's - do i just tack the code onto the end (The BaseClass::SetGroundEntity(ground); is also not there) --Amckern 22:46, 5 Nov 2005 (PST)

Server? Client?: RL explosion invisible

Per http://www.chatbear.com/board.plm?a=viewthread&t=970,1107153392,30132&id=786504&b=4991&v=flatold

The patch to c_te_explosion.cpp was rolled into the 2006-08-04 SDK update, however it does not fix the issue. The issue still exists. My current speculation is that this is a bug in core or in the maps, but hard to say which.

sv_gravity is not associated with physics gravity

When gravity is changed, the physics gravity isn't updated

Fix: In movevars_shared.cpp:

inline void UpdatePhysicsGravity(float gravity)
{
	if(physenv)
		physenv->SetGravity(Vector(0,0,-gravity));
}
static void GravityChanged_Callback( ConVar *var, const char *pOldString )
{
#ifndef CLIENT_DLL
	UpdatePhysicsGravity(var->GetFloat());
	if(gpGlobals->mapname!=NULL_STRING)
	{
		IGameEvent *event = gameeventmanager->CreateEvent( "gravity_change" );
		if ( event )
		{
			event->SetFloat( "newgravity", var->GetFloat() );
			gameeventmanager->FireEvent( event );
		}
	}
#endif
}
#ifdef CLIENT_DLL
class CGravityChange : public IGameEventListener2, public CAutoGameSystem
{
public:
	bool Init()
	{
		gameeventmanager->AddListener(this,"gravity_change",false);
		return true;
	}
	void FireGameEvent( IGameEvent *event )
	{
		UpdatePhysicsGravity(event->GetFloat("newgravity"));
	}
};
static CGravityChange s_GravityChange;
#endif
ConVar	sv_gravity		( "sv_gravity",DEFAULT_GRAVITY_STRING, FCVAR_NOTIFY | FCVAR_REPLICATED, "World gravity.", GravityChanged_Callback );

In your mod's events file (GameEvents.res/ModEvents.res):

	"gravity_change"
	{
		"newgravity"	"float"
	}

To do: Diff this

Server: util.cpp (531) : Assertion Failed: !"UTIL_GetLocalPlayer"

(You could, though it's unlikely to impact performance much since this is not a frequently called function. Bloodykenny 17:55, 19 Jul 2005 (PDT))

Server/Client: Negative entitygroundcontact crash.

The implications of this SDK bug are not at all clear, but in debug mode you'll get an assert, and in release mode it will presumably segfault. The patch assumes anything negative or really large is bogus and dumps it.

I'm starting to wonder if maybe this is another symptom of the Physics Mayhem bugs. --Bloodykenny 17:24, 4 Nov 2005 (PST)

Client: Spinning around quickly with the Stun Baton as your active weapon causes the screen to flash white

It's worth noting that recent updates to HL2DM have fixed this. However there has not yet been an SDK code update to show what the fix is. Basically Valve seems to have made the glow fade out completely in between swings.

Client: The mod can appear to have frozen on initial startup

Fix: Issue a "progress_enable" command just before "map <mapname>".

engine->ClientCmd("progress_enable");

engine->ClientCmd("map test");

This should fix local servers. For connecting to a remote multiplayer server, the only issue appears to be that you can't switch to another window and then switch back to HL2. Doing so causes HL2 to never render progress info until load is fully complete. That seems to be an HL2 core bug unrelated (though very similar in appearance) to the fix above.

USE_VCR_MODE linker errors

This is because Valve wants to be able to somehow replay all of the things that happen in a mod and get back the exact same output. I'm still confused as to how that would work, or what the value really is, but anyway, if you need things like threading, you'll hit these errors.

My mod needed threading and commenting these out has never caused any issue. Though apparently it means my mod can't use VCR mode.

Fix: Comment out the appropriate lines in protected_things.h, for whatever VCR thing was failing. Note, don't just block out the whole file - the string part at the top is actually useful.

Lighting in Compile (RAD)

There is currently a rather severe lighting bug during RAD. Visible symptoms include: black models while in shadows cast by light_environment; large, unlit sections in "outdoor" type areas.

Fix: Pending.


Complaints about tv_delaymapchange in NON SRCTV Mods

Note:This issue is fixed in the August 2006 SDK update

Issue: Console reports an issue about tv_delaymapchange when loading a mod with no SRCTV Support.

mod/game_shared/multiplay_gamerules.cpp

Undone! you don't have to remove it, instead, add FCVAR_REPLICATED like all the other cvar's. It's doing it because it's a shared ConVar in both dll's and not being replicated. --omega

Instead, change to this:

Line 47
ConVar	mp_timelimit( "mp_timelimit",
					  "0",
					  FCVAR_NOTIFY|FCVAR_REPLICATED,
					  "game time per map in minutes" );

ConVar	tv_delaymapchange( "tv_delaymapchange",
					  "0",
-					  0,
+					  FCVAR_NOTIFY|FCVAR_REPLICATED,
					  "Delays map change until broadcast is complete" );
					  

Physics models show up darker under switchable lights

Switchable lights are not taken into account for visibility of physics models when Source starts a map. So whenever a physics model is mostly lit by switchable lights, it will show up much darker when the map starts.

If the switchable lights are turned off and on again, or if a physics model is moved, then the visibility of this physics model is automatically fixed. But if the map is saved and reloaded, all physics models under switchable lights become darker again.

Note:A switchable light is a light with a targetname, that can be triggered to turn on/off.

Fix: Fix unknown


Sticky Player Collisions / No lagcompensation

Note:In the SDK-code of August 06, there is no StartLagCompensation() call.

I've been chasing a fix for this for months for Dystopia, when two players collide with each other there's massive prediction errors and to the player it looks like they're jerking back and forth. It can mean real trouble when two players attempt to get through a doorway or something, and it sucks if you're trying to do a good melee system.

Anyways, I found out the cause of this problem is on the server, when it runs a players movement code, it first unlags all the other players on the server, presumably to help predict player vs. player collisions. The problem is, because two players have different pings, there's no authoritative point of impact for the collision, so the jerking around you see is caused by this unlagging. Now down to the fix, which is really simple:

player_command.cpp Line 42

	// Move other players back to history positions based on local player's lag
-	lagcompensation->StartLagCompensation( player, cmd );

player_command.cpp Line 52

	// Restore other players to current positions
-	lagcompensation->FinishLagCompensation( player );

player_command.cpp Line 348

	// Let server invoke any needed impact functions
	moveHelper->ProcessImpacts();

+	// Only do unlag for post think/post frame, which is mainly weapons stuff! - Teddy
+	lagcompensation->StartLagCompensation( player, ucmd );
	RunPostThink( player );
+	lagcompensation->FinishLagCompensation( player );

	FinishCommand( player );

Pretty simple huh? You only need unlag for weapons really, and all the weapon hitscan code is run from the weapon's ItemPostFrame which is what the RunPostThink() runs. Let me know if it works for you! --Teddy 20:05, 12 Jun 2006 (PDT)

I added this fix to the latest version of the SDK (as of January, 2007) and I did not notice any difference. I believe this issue may have already been addressed in the latest SDK so this fix is uneccessary if you are running the latest SDK code. [User: Minh]

Minor/misc code neatenings/fixings

(This section is for issues in the codebase that you've spotted to be potentially dangerous but aren't actually causing obvious bugs/issues... every little improvement to the quality of the codebase helps, right?)

/src/cl_dll/game_controls/spectatorgui.cpp(508): The memset is setting twice as much memory as it should be to 0x0 because sizeof(playerName) already accounts for the fact that the elements are wchar_t type. Fix: Remove the "* sizeof( wchar_t)".

filter_damage_type doesn't work

Open dlls/filters.cpp and replace

return info.GetDamageType() == m_iDamageType;

with

return ( (info.GetDamageType() & m_iDamageType ) ? true : false );

Floating SLAM's

When attaching a SLAM at a movable object, it doesn't explode when the object moves and so give a "floating SLAM".

Assertion Failed in utlbuffer.cpp

[ISSUE] An assertion is thrown from the following location in utlbuffer.cpp:

CUtlBuffer::CUtlBuffer( const void *pBuffer, int nSize, int nFlags ) :
	m_Memory( (unsigned char*)pBuffer, nSize ), m_Error(0)
{
        Assert( nSize != 0 );

	...
}


[FIX] Change the source to:

CUtlBuffer::CUtlBuffer( const void *pBuffer, int nSize, int nFlags ) :
	m_Memory( (unsigned char*)pBuffer, nSize ), m_Error(0)
{
        Assert( nSize >= 0 );

	...
}


However, there appears to be a separate issue with dependencies in the VS project. For example, selecting Build Solution may not reflect the above changes when running the project. For a temporary workaround, select Rebuild Solution and then Build Solution. The expected behavior is that rebuilding will produce a linker error about tier1.lib, but building afterwards will succeed.


[TODO] Investigate VS project dependencies to come up with a fix that avoids having to rebuild the solution.

Constant physprops->GetSurfaceData( ) on Linux

The physprops->GetSurfaceData( ) for a trace returns always CHAR_TEX_CONCRETE on Linux with SDK 2007. The surface type is correctly detected on Windows though. This should be fixed in 2009 according to: [2].

Cannot re-ignite entities

There's a glich in SDK that does not call Extinguish() on entity once fire goes out, because it always returns NULL pointer, this causes inability to ignite same entity again. To fix this without changing header go to EntityFlame.cpp line 286. Warning: Not only can you re-ignite entities in latest SDK version, but the game will crash if this edit is applied. Replace this

if ( m_hEntAttached )
		{
			CBaseCombatCharacter *pAttachedCC = m_hEntAttached->MyCombatCharacterPointer();

			if( pAttachedCC )
			{
				// Notify the NPC that it's no longer burning!
				pAttachedCC->Extinguish();
			}
		}

with this

		if ( m_hEntAttached )
		{
			//Cannot directly cast networked variables
			CBaseEntity *temp = m_hEntAttached;
			CBaseCombatCharacter *pAttachedCC = (CBaseCombatCharacter *)temp;

			if( pAttachedCC )
			{
				// Notify the NPC that it's no longer burning!
				pAttachedCC->Extinguish();
			}
		}
