GUI StudioMDL - Win32 Gui wrapper for the Half-Life model compiler Having used computers for a long time, using a command line tool isn't and issue for me, however I noticed more and more people getting into Half-Life model making but coming unstuck when trying to use the model compiler. To this end I've written a small Win32 Gui front end to the compiler called, oddly enough, GUI StudioMDL. It provides access to all the same functions and parameters as the DOS based compiler, but through a simple, lightweight user interface
Well I cant force anyone to use it but it does save some of the hassle of starting a DOS window and typing long pathnames in! It does however give you the following:
the installer and GUI StudioMDL will be installed for you. It will associate itself with QC files and create two shortcuts on your desktop - either one will start GUI StudioMDL or you can drag a QC file onto the icon to auto-load it. Draggingg a file onto the Auto Compile icon will open and compile the QC script for you.
GUIStudioMDL includes the default Half-Life SDK compiler. If your mod requires a different version, replace the compiler in the GUI StudioMDL install folder.
The output window doesnt show the output of studiomdl.exe until after the compile is done, so if its a large model your compiling you might not see anything for a while.
