Use of $game

anybody knows the use of $game ?

The variable game is set in the gameinfo.txt, so what's this?? -- Rotzi 07:50, 3 Aug 2006 (PDT)

I could have sworn I saw this file $included in a script file...—ts2do 09:03, 3 Aug 2006 (PDT)
A shit, forgot about this site ;P (was still open).
I foud it a while ago. It seems to just be a name definition. It is included when starting up the game as "starting $game" or sth like that...
Is that all? *.* Well, seems like it...
Btw, is such an article like this, describing a sdk file appropiate? Hope so ;P greetz -- Rotzi 13:16, 3 Aug 2006 (PDT)
If you don't have $game set, steam will tell you that you are starting HL2(DM) while starting your mod. It's also possible that this is used for Friends. --dutchmega 13:37, 3 Aug 2006 (PDT)
