  • Fixed an issue in studiomdl pertaining to $shadowlod

  • The texture browser automatically ignores most textures that cannot be placed on brushes or displacements, as well as anything inside a .svn folder for those using svn as their choice of versioning software.

  • Separated the VRAD calls into two sequential while using HDR (-ldr and -hdr) instead of -both
  • Model browser is now created once per session
  • Displacement brush dial now has greater range
  • Added a stop button to sound previews

SDK Launcher

Source Code
  • Added a new template mod that replaces the old 'advanced' source . This template has options for teams,classes, sprinting, prone, stamina, etc.
  • Added shader source; fxc.exe, psa.exe and vsa.exe must be placed into the dx9sdk\utilities folder and you must modify materialsystem\stdshaders\buildsdkshaders.bat to set your paths.
  • Most tonemap controller options now work in multiplayer. The 'template mod' map 'sdk_teams_hdr' demonstrates this.
  • All three mod types by default mount the required appids - Multiplayer uses 218 and mounts 320 for example. Gameinfo.txt contains a new entry 'AdditionalAppId' for this purpose.
  • Particle systems can now be defined with a per-map manifest, similar to soundscapes.
  • Fixed a number of issues which caused the server to not compile in linux
