Carrington Institute fix
« on: September 06, 2012, 08:22:48 am »

I'm a total n00b.

My first attempt at fixing the Carrington Institute map by HardHittinHeeb88 has failed.

I used VMEX to decompile his map. I then proceeded to learn how to replace, remove, and add props.
Learned how to replace textures, even found a repository of the old textures that were taken out from 4.1 to 4.2 so I could figure out which new textures should replace the old ones.

Problem is, when i recompiled the map, textures were missing from props, and lighting was completely screwed.
I know nothing about lighting or fixing missing textures on props that I added.

So is there a better way to decompile the map or should I still be seeking the VMF file from HardHittinHeeb88? I was thinking of trying BSPsource before giving up. I messaged him but he has not been on the forum since 2009 and I highly doubt he ticked the option to allow members to email him.

Anyone have any insight on what I should do?

Well, Contacting the mapper sure is the best way, But since he's inactive, I don't believe you have any chances... Maybe someone around here got the vmf and could fix it, Decompiling isn't very reliable most of the time.

Glad to see the love after years, never got your message (perhaps you sent it to my AIM SN?), If you're still up to it, I would be glad to supply the VMFs for my map and help out, otherwise, I think I'll try my hand at it. Life had kept me busy, so didn't get to update my map.
