Millenia's CS:S compiling w/ Max

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Source

Shows you how I personally compile stuff.

Shows you how to compile stuff for CS:S with 3ds Max :V Note: instead of opening 'counter-strike source shared.gcf', open 'common/counter-strike source/cstrike/cstrike\_pak\_dir.vpk' Note2: the compile tools are now in 'common/counter-strike source/bin', put GUIStudioMDL.exe there and have the orange box path point there; decompile tools still go in the sdk folders. Note3: instead of using the SDK, there is also a 'hlmv.exe' file in the bin folder you should use for the model viewer. Note4: before being able to use the weapon in game, make a new folder in 'common/counter-strike source/cstrike/custom/', this will be your new cstrike folder, so in there you should have materials, models and everything else related to the skin.
