    Well I was shitting around in Hammer today found that L4D maps do work in GMod with proper tweaking. I've fixed a few problems in the map, and theres on major one. L4D relies on alot of film effects that are incorporated into the new engine, GMod's EP2 engine doesn't have it.

    Since models have already been ripped, it was quite easy to get it working. Some things gave me trouble, but I suspect that we will have fully working GMod maps sometime in the future. Oh, and the appartment below is missing things like holes in the wall because I patched it for a comic I'm making (In case you're woundering).






    I would of taken more pictures but then the damn rain crashed me. Gotta remove that next compile
    Rejoice guys, we've almost got them.

    Way to miss the point of the thread, he's basically saying the opposite to what you think he is.

    Yeah, but it sounds like he had to recompile them in order for it to actually work. There's no other way it could work, unless there was some flags he could enable or disable inside the OB Engine of Garry's Mod.

    Yeah of course I had to recompile, how else would I have deleted all the L4D stuff for GMod?

    Surprisingly it compiled fast.

    Never said it was a big deal, I'm just proving that we will be able to get them into GMod as some said we won't.

    So, without all of the effects and shit, they look like slightly improved Half Life 2 maps? Ugh... that sucks. Still, maybe doing the reverse and putting these effects on Half Life 2 would make Half life look extremely awesome to the max (yo)? Somebody should try it, I can imagine Ravenholm with fim grain and stuff (fucking poison headcrabs!), it would be pretty sweet :D

    If only Garry were to update the Garry's Mod Source engine to the L4D one :(

    But then it would break a lot of old stuff and he would be busy for quite a while

    That's not bad grammar though it should say OB instead of EP2.
