GoldSource mapping in Hammer 4.x

From Valve Developer Community
Jump to: navigation, search

Although it's not easy to set up, it is possible to map for any GoldSource game using Hammer 4.x All you need to do is download the appropriate .fgd files and modify your GameConfig.txt file (either Episode One or Orange Box; it doesn't matter). Using the GameInfo.txt from below will make Hammer use Half-Life Source models and textures.

To edit your GameConfig.txt go to c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk\bin\ep1\bin\ or c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\ and open it with your text editor of choice.

Read the section below for a better understanding of the structure of GameConfig.txt

Note: Using this setup will cause certain functions in Hammer to work improperly.
Note: Hammer4.x does not render textures from Half-Life .wad files.
Note: Hammer4.x does not render textures from Half-Life .spr files.

Modifiying GameConfig.txt

Add any of these into your GameConfig.txt file of choice. Be sure to change <username> to your Steam username. Also, make sure all the paths are correct for your computer.

Note:GoldSource maps are compiled by four tools, but Source maps are compiled by only three tools. In Hammer 4.1, you will not be able to compile correctly with the setup in these game configurations, but they can be added manually in expert settings by adding executable options (for more information see Compiling Map In Expert Mode) and be compiled correctly by adding CSG, BSP, VIS, and RAD in that order, Zoners Half-Life Compile Tools are recommended for compiling GoldSource maps.

Make sure that you paste these configurations between

"Configs"
{
"Games"
{

and

}
"SDKVersion"		"3"
}

If your GameConfig.txt is missing a '{' or '}' because you didn't paste properly it probably won't work.

Adding your own configuration

Read through this to work out how to add in a custom configuration for a mod.

"Modname"
{
	"GameDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life\modname"  // path to the mod directory
	"hammer"
	{
		"GameData0"		"c:\modname.fgd"  // path to .fgd file
		"TextureFormat"		"2"  // leave this as 2; it tells Hammer to use .wad files instead of .vtf
		"MapFormat"		"3" // leave this as 3: it tells Hammer to use .rmf files instead of .vmf
		"DefaultTextureScale"		"0.250000"  // ??? (leave it)
		"DefaultLightmapScale"		"16"  // ??? (leave it)
		"GameExe"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life\hl.exe"  // path to Half-Life executable
		"DefaultSolidEntity"		"func_wall"  // should be something else?
		"DefaultPointEntity"		"info_player_start"  // player start entity
		"BSP"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk\bin\halflife\bin\qbsp2.exe"  // doesn't need to be set; compile with a .bat file
		"Vis"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk\bin\halflife\bin\vis.exe"  // doesn't need to be set; compile with a .bat file
		"Light"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk\bin\halflife\bin\qrad.exe"  // doesn't need to be set; compile with a .bat file
		"GameExeDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life"  // leave it because mods won't use any othe executable
		"MapDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life\modname\maps"  // directory to load maps from
		"BSPDir"		"c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\half-life\valve\maps"  // directory to place compiled maps in; not needed because compilation needs to be done manually
		"CordonTexture"		"sky" 
		"MaterialExcludeCount"		"0"  // ??? (leave it )
	}
}

GameInfo.txt

Hammer 4.x will look for a GameInfo.txt file in the game directory it is working from, however GoldSource engine games do not have GameInfo.txt files.

Paste this into a GameInfo.txt in your game directory (steamapps\counter-strike\cstrike\, steamapps\day of defeat\dod\ etc)

Note:If using the Orange Box version of hammer, replace the SteamAppId with 218.

"GameInfo"
{
	game	"Counter-Strike"
	title	"Counter-Strike"
	type	multiplayer_only

	FileSystem
	{
		SteamAppId				280		// Half-Life Source - if you don't own it, set this to something else
		ToolsAppId				211		
		
		SearchPaths
		{
			Game				|gameinfo_path|.
			Game				hl2
			Game				hl1
		}
	}
}

Forge Game Data

Hammer 3.x .fgd files will work in Hammer 4.x Look below for links to .fgd files.

If you are going to use the configurations from above, copy your .fgd files to c:\program files\steam\steamapps\<username>\sourcesdk\bin\halflife\bin\
