79 posts in this topic

NOTE: THIS THREAD IS OUTDATED, WE'RE USING THE SOURCE2013SDK (Hammer should be already preset up for you by right clicking on No More Room in Hell)

Hi everybody,

You want to make some maps for No More Room in Hell but you don't know how to configure the Valve Hammer Editor?

This video will explain how to have a working Source SDK:
PLEASE READ: You have to do some modifications in the GameConfig.txt file otherwise it won't work! Please read the whole post before reporting problems, thanks!

Open your GameConfig.txt file (can be found in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\[YOUR ACCOUNT]\sourcesdk\bin\source2007\bin") with a text editor, delete everything then copy/paste this inside:

"Configs"
{
"Games"
{
"No More Room in Hell"
{
"GameDir" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\SteamApps\sourcemods\nmrih"
"hammer"
{
"GameData0" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\SteamApps\sourcemods\nmrih\fgd\nmrih.fgd"
"TextureFormat" "5"
"MapFormat" "4"
"DefaultTextureScale" "0.250000"
"DefaultLightmapScale" "16"
"GameExe" "[iNSTALL DIR]\Steam\SteamApps\[sTEAM ACCOUNT]\source sdk base 2007\hl2.exe"
"DefaultSolidEntity" "func_detail"
"DefaultPointEntity" "info_player_commons"
"BSP" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\steamapps\[sTEAM ACCOUNT]\sourcesdk\bin\source2007\bin\vbsp.exe"
"Vis" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\steamapps\[sTEAM ACCOUNT]\sourcesdk\bin\source2007\bin\vvis.exe"
"Light" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\steamapps\[sTEAM ACCOUNT]\sourcesdk\bin\source2007\bin\vrad.exe"
"GameExeDir" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\SteamApps\sourcemods\nmrih"
"MapDir" "[iNSTALL DIR]\steam\SteamApps\sourcemods\nmrih\maps"
"BSPDir" "[iNSTALL DIR]\Steam\SteamApps\sourcemods\nmrih\maps"
"CordonTexture" "tools\toolsblack"
"MaterialExcludeCount" "0"
}
}
}
"SDKVersion" "3"
}



You'll have to manually add some informations like the installation directory and your Steam account name ("[iNSTALL DIR]" is certainly "c:\Program Files (x86)"), save the file then restart the Source SDK.

You're welcome ;)

I'm not sure that the GameConfig.txt is 100% correct, it seems to work fine for me anyway.

Great work! We can use this info in our next news post (we want to encourage some custom maps to be made!)

Or you could just go to engine version "Source Engine 2007" and click "Edit Game Configurations" then click add and name it what you want and have the directory to the game_info.txt

You'll need at least one configurated game for the Source Engine 2007 to do that. My tutorial is dedicated to anyone who don't have any game configuration for this engine version.

If you just create a simple mod for source engine 2007, it works too. You just have to name the mod and never touch it again, or atleast thats what i did and it worked. Although it does seem to be that you have to setup the fgd properly or atleast, whenever i did that for both NMRIH and PVKII(another mod i map for ) both entities for those games were missing. and i had to manually replace them at tools > options in hammer

Or it could just not work when you do everything right and then you drink whiskey.

Well the video doesn't work anymore thanks to YouTube bending over to copyright infringement requests.

This is stupid. I want to make maps not deal with censorship.

i get an error saying "the configuration information about the game you'r trying to edit is invalid or missing"

the download link didnt work for me so i copy and pasted.

is the info still valid or did i do something wrong?

it gives me the option to "run anyway" "cancel" or "help..."

help is useless.

should i click the run anyway?
