Err, hi. How do you activate engine tools in games such as Portal 2Portal 2? I start the game with those launch settings but it doesn't do anything. --RandomCatDude (talk) 09:57, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

They dont work in portal 2 im pretty sure. Loudslappingsounds (talk) 13:44, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
A shame, I wanted to extract the PCFs and check out how they worked. --RandomCatDude (talk) 14:38, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Alien Swarm's works (and its free) Loudslappingsounds (talk) 14:48, 26 January 2019 (UTC)
Can that help me in looking at Portal 2's PCFs? --RandomCatDude (talk) 08:56, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
I've heard people say they're compatible. Never done it myself. Loudslappingsounds (talk) 09:38, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
How does that work? --RandomCatDude (talk) 09:49, 27 January 2019 (UTC)

Should thirdparty engine tools be included on this page?

So yeah I was wondering should we include Light editor or Source shader editor as these tools are not official, but still some mods and games use them.Toligon (talk)

I think that unofficial ones may well be included (in a separate section for example)-NOUG4AT (talk) 06:48, 29 January 2024 (PST)
