Viewing Half-Life: Source models
« on: May 12, 2007, 01:20:49 PM »

Is there a way to view Half-Life: Source models from the Source Model Viewer? I recently got the Valve Complete Pack, and I can view the models for Half-Life 2, Episode 1, Counter Strike: Source HL2 Deathmatch and Day of Defeat: Source, but not HL: Source. Can anyone help me please?

I don't think theres a 3rd party Source Model viewer yet (I wouldn't count on it either).  Hmm no I don't think there is a way, but seriously, why would you want to view them?! :P
Maybe try making a fake MOD using the MOD builder, in the gameinfo.txt for your fake mod, add the Half-Life Source GCF.  You need to do this with a GCF ID - you can get this by placing a shortcut to to Half Life Source on your desktop
Right click on it and check the properties
You should get something like "C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 380 (which is for HLEP1)
Adding 380 to the gameinfo.txt will add HLEP1 to my Mod if I want it to, for HLS just look for a similar number and add that

Phew! Hope that all made sense!!  Its complicated I know

Wrong.

Thanks for the help, sappy and CaptainVonGonzo.

By the way, sappy, how's the HL:S HD pack going?
