Detail props/Aspect ratio fix

This bug in Valve's stock code affects detail sprite materials stored at a location other than detail\detailsprites. The aspect ratio used when selecting subregions of the custom texture is mistakenly read from detail\detailsprites at all times, meaning that the custom texture's aspect ratio must match that of the stock file.

This happens because Valve's aspect ratio code runs before the world has spawned and the detail sprite material becomes known. The fix is moving it to a function called post-spawn.

The fix

Go to CDetailObjectSystem::LevelInitPreEntity() in client\detailobjectsystem.cpp and remove this code block from about half-way down:

if ( m_DetailObjects.Count() || m_DetailSpriteDict.Count() )
{
	// There are detail objects in the level, so precache the material
	PrecacheMaterial( DETAIL_SPRITE_MATERIAL );
	IMaterial *pMat = m_DetailSpriteMaterial;
	// adjust for non-square textures (cropped)
	float flRatio = pMat->GetMappingWidth() / pMat->GetMappingHeight();
	if ( flRatio > 1.0 )
	{
		for( int i = 0; i<m_DetailSpriteDict.Count(); i++ )
		{
			m_DetailSpriteDict[i].m_TexUL.y *= flRatio;
			m_DetailSpriteDict[i].m_TexLR.y *= flRatio;
			m_DetailSpriteDictFlipped[i].m_TexUL.y *= flRatio;
			m_DetailSpriteDictFlipped[i].m_TexLR.y *= flRatio;
		}
	}
}

Then in function void CDetailObjectSystem::LevelInitPostEntity() replace this code:

	const char *pDetailSpriteMaterial = DETAIL_SPRITE_MATERIAL;
	C_World *pWorld = GetClientWorldEntity();
	if ( pWorld && pWorld->GetDetailSpriteMaterial() && *(pWorld->GetDetailSpriteMaterial()) )
	{
		pDetailSpriteMaterial = pWorld->GetDetailSpriteMaterial(); 
	}
	m_DetailSpriteMaterial.Init( pDetailSpriteMaterial, TEXTURE_GROUP_OTHER );

With this code:

if ( m_DetailObjects.Count() || m_DetailSpriteDict.Count() )
	{
		const char *pDetailSpriteMaterial = DETAIL_SPRITE_MATERIAL;
		C_World *pWorld = GetClientWorldEntity();
		if ( pWorld && pWorld->GetDetailSpriteMaterial() && *(pWorld->GetDetailSpriteMaterial()) )
			pDetailSpriteMaterial = pWorld->GetDetailSpriteMaterial(); 
 
		m_DetailSpriteMaterial.Init( pDetailSpriteMaterial, TEXTURE_GROUP_OTHER );
		PrecacheMaterial( pDetailSpriteMaterial );
		IMaterial *pMat = m_DetailSpriteMaterial;
 
		// adjust for non-square textures (cropped)
		float flRatio = pMat->GetMappingWidth() / pMat->GetMappingHeight();
		if ( flRatio > 1.0 )
		{
			for( int i = 0; i<m_DetailSpriteDict.Count(); i++ )
			{
				m_DetailSpriteDict[i].m_TexUL.y *= flRatio;
				m_DetailSpriteDict[i].m_TexLR.y *= flRatio;
				m_DetailSpriteDictFlipped[i].m_TexUL.y *= flRatio;
				m_DetailSpriteDictFlipped[i].m_TexLR.y *= flRatio;
			}
		}
	}
