Hey guys, a little bit about me, I'm a fan of fps games and the halflife community. I currently attend Gorgetown Highschool in Georgetown Texas. I have always been interested in how First Person Shooters are made, especially the mapping and world design. Now im as green as they get (I've dabled a bit in the tourqe engine, big mistake I dont suggest even thinking about it, but other than that have no experience whatsoever in game design) and all I have is; source sdk base, an extreamly crappy computer that runs at a snails pace, a mind full of ideas, and the enthusiasm to make a great game. Any help or tips for someone just starting out would be greatly appreciated.
Im having difficulty with hammer editor the wire map does not apper in any of the 4 "windows" so i cant make a block or do anything. Also my hl2 isnt working properly, probably because of all the custom skins i have for it. i dont want to get rid of them but thats what it looks like ill have to do.
