Here's a series of short and on-point tutorials for beginners to help you understand the editor and guide you to make your first map for Half-Life 1 as well as any other GoldSrc game or mod such as Counter-Strike or Sven Co-op.

Note that these tutorials should work for JackHammer and Sledge Editor aswell since they share a similar interface to Hammer Editor.

  2. Your First Map - Basics and Controls
  3. Curved Walls / Rounded Walls
  4. Making the Map Interactive - Basics of Entities

  7. See-through and Shoot-through Brush - the CLIP Brush
  8. Doors and Switches - Basics of Naming and Targetting
  9. Rotating Doors - the ORIGIN Brush
  10. Scripted Events - Using multi_manager
  11. Making NPCs do things - Scripted Sequences
  12. Setting up Multiple Objectives - multisource

It doesn't matter, Jack Hammer has pretty much the same interface as Hammer Editor so the tutorials should work for JackHammer aswell.
