1) First, start up SourceSDK via your tools tab in steam. This will update all necessary files, though it shouldn't really matter for us.

2)Next, we want to find our GameConfig.txt file inside our sdk bin folder. This can be done by following this directory(replace USERNAME with your steam name). Please note this is EP1 and not Orange box.

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\USERNAME\sourcesdk\bin\ep1\bin\

3) Open up the GameConfig.txt and scroll down towards the bottom. You will notice the placement of brackets, it is important not to break the brackets at any point. For every open bracket, you need a closing bracket. Stick the following information into the GameConfig.txt, and replace USERNAME with your steam account name. Click Save and close the file.

"Ricochet: Source a1.1"
"GameDir" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\SourceMods\RicochetSource"
"GameData0" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\SourceMods\RicochetSource\FGD\ricbase.fgd"
"GameData1" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\SourceMods\RicochetSource\FGD\ricochet_01e.fgd"
"GameData2" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\USERNAME\sourcesdk\bin\ep1\bin\hl2mp.fgd"
"TextureFormat" "5"
"MapFormat" "4"
"DefaultTextureScale" "0.250000"
"DefaultLightmapScale" "16"
"GameExe" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\USERNAME \half-life 2\hl2.exe"
"DefaultSolidEntity" "func_detail"
"DefaultPointEntity" "ai_ally_manager"
"BSP" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\USERNAME \sourcesdk\bin\ep1\bin\vbsp.exe"
"Vis" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\USERNAME \sourcesdk\bin\ep1\bin\vvis.exe"
"Light" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\USERNAME \sourcesdk\bin\ep1\bin\vrad.exe"
"GameExeDir" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\USERNAME \half-life 2"
"MapDir" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\SourceMods\RicochetSource\mapsrc"
"BSPDir" "c:\program files\steam\steamapps\SourceMods\RicochetSource\maps"
"CordonTexture" "tools\toolsskybox"
"MaterialExcludeCount" "0"

4) After that, just open up SourceSDK. Select Ricochet: Source under the EP1 drop down, and start hammer. Happy mapping!!

Also replace c:\program files\steam\ with your Steam directory.
