NPC problem

Been using the Hammer editor for a couple of days now. Made a basic map with 2 skyscrapers and a road between them. Ran the map, works lovely, added 1 NPC_barney and it crashes on the load screen after compiling.

Anyone know what the problem here might be? Do I need more RAM? I remember placing an NPC in a map before and having no problems. Now it just will not work.

Can anyone help?

Oh yeah, while I'm at it, does anyone know the command you put in the compile dialogue box to skip the valve loading intro and display the console when loading it? I found it on a tutorial somewhere, but deleted it to see if it would make any difference (regarding the main problem above), but it didn't.


  • If you were to read the nice large text above your own post, you would know this isn't the place for questions like this. Please move it to the Help Desk if you want any assistance. --AndrewNeo 09:22, 14 Apr 2006 (PDT)

Language Filters on Wiki

Is it possible to implement a language filter on wiki? I don't mean for swearing, I mean to block out articles that aren't in your normal language from being displayed in the recent changes and random pages. - RodeoClown 00:39, 20 Mar 2006 (PST)

  • I would have to say no, because the alternate language articles are in the main namespace. If we had a system set up like Wikipedia then they wouldn't even show up. The Valve staff hasn't even upgraded the wiki software since they installed it (apparently due to their customizations, but making diffs from the base code to the current version and then reimplementing them when they're done shouldn't be as hard..) Anyway, from a logical standpoint, I'd say they're probably not going to. But that's just me. They don't happen that much, either.. --AndrewNeo 13:40, 10 Apr 2006 (PDT)
Actually, the wiki software has been updated for security and bugfixes. An upgrade to a newer version of the software is forthcoming. Full version upgrades are not trivial, as Mediawiki often makes changes that break existing features, even if you have not made any customizations. For this reason we only makes updates when necessary. --JeffLane 19:16, 10 Apr 2006 (PDT)
