Need Help with StudioMDL

A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike: Source

Need help! Will give points!

Well, I get this error everytime I try to compile, everything is set up btw, the model is hacked in, the .qc is correct, but I get this: Error Unable to find gameinfo.txt. 1. Read (There's no such link, I tried) 2. Run vconfig to specify which game you're on 3. Add -game on the command line where is the directory where gameinfo.txt is in. I understand what it's asking, but I can't find vconfig, whatever the hell it is. Help?

    Open up the source SDK when using studiomdl, also refresh game configurations. If it still don't work, open up the gameConfig.txt and rewrite the GameDir variable for the game your trying to compile for.
