View Full Version : How to compile outside of hammer?

In the old Hammer(Half-Life 1 engine) you could use something called a batch file to compile levels. I don't recall how to make the batch file... or even if you can use it for HL2. Any help?

a link (http://choggi.dyndns.org/files/css/) to the batch files i use

you need to open them and change
set mapname=loganhouse
set source=E:\Steam\!Source
set cstrike=E:\Steam\steamapps\YOUR_EMAIL@SOMEWHERE.CO M\counter-strike source\cstrike

i think you can guess what mapname and cstrike is. source is the place you have the map

say your map is here C:\games\css\mapfiles\mymap.vmf you would put
set mapname=mymap
set source=C:\games\css\mapfiles

edit:forgot to mention that steam still needs to be running
