HammerVmfHelper - A Modding Tool for Source Engine

A tool for the Source engine


This is a tool that i created to easily convert "ent_fire" console commands to .vmf compatible text.

You need to go ingame and use ent_fire commands to set things up properly, and then add all those commands/outputs into hammer.
This process can take a long time to finish.

That's where this application comes in to help out. Instead of typing in the commands/outputs in hammer all over again, just copy+paste the "ent_fire" history from your console into the tool and let it convert everything to .vmf-compatible text.
(then just CTRL+F the .vmf in notepad++ and paste it in wherever you need)

The general purpose of this application is probably not a thing in high demand, i mostly made it for myself (in order to speed up a project), but i figured it could be uploaded to my portfolio either way.

It works in all Source games from what i've tested.

Written from scratch in Java, it's a .jar file that requires you to have Java installed.
There are full instructions on how to use it in the application itself (see image)

Good luck!
