If you get missing DLL errors when launching any of the tools, it means that there has been an engine update and that you need to run the SDK Launcher once to refresh some files. After this the tools will start working again.

Issues

  • Gadgets are discontinued according to microsoft website, and this tools will by the way not support windows 8 operating systems.
  • The game you want to mod with, must be installed into the same drive than Steam.
  • The "Launch SDK" button will only work with games that are release with a sdk authoring tools that have a launcher
  • When the Gadget is shutdown, the configuration is not saved.
  • Dota 2 is not delivered with Hammer and HLMV or Faceposer, it's recommanded to use SFM configuration in the Gadget, for Dota 2. It just need to create a NEW mod project , name it Dota2 and set the path on that directory.
