Permentaly change facial expressions on models?

A Forum Thread for Source Engine

I know the face poser tool can has certain details you can change in the model however from what I can tell that's only during a scene. I'd like to change the facial expression permantly so even when that model/character isn't in a scene it's face still stays the same. 

Anyone know how to do this?

    I believe it is an expression override string
    I don't know anything on how it works but I've seen it used on certain gmod servers tht have shop npcs. You mean where they'll keep like a grin on their face even when talking?
