I was reading a tutorial on using the cycler_sprite, here;

http://www.slackiller.com/tutorials/tutorials/addingmodelsintocs.htm

The tutorial says I need to place a cycler_sprite and the I should go to its properties window & scroll down to the "sprite line".
I tried that but I scroll down and there is NO "sprite line". What's the problem? Do I need to use a special version of Hammer or do I need to install something? I'm using the Hammer Editor version 3.4

May be called "Model / Sprite" depending on your fgd. They're talking about the entry where you're supposed to enter the filepath to your model.
QUACK! QUACK!

Unfortunently there is no 'Model/Sprite' either. Do I need to download any updates or something? What version of Hammer do you use?

You need to update your fgd.

expert .fgd
Gives you access to ALL the entity types in CS. Unzip everything to your Hammer/fgd/counter-strike folder and tell Hammer to use the new FGD (Tools->Options->Game Configurations->Game Data Files box).

Well, thank you, it worked!

Yet there is another problem: I brought up the Object Properties window and I clicked on "Model / Sprite", then I selsected my model and I closed the Properties window.
But the model doesn't show up! After I close the window the model doesn't appear! It remains as a purple box.

Why is that? Does anyone know how to fix this?

It will show as a purple box either until you move closer with the Hammer camera or it won't change at all, only showing as a model ingame. Dunno which (it's the "move closer" behaviour in the Source version of Hammer).

I move closer witht the camera but it doesn't make any difference.

It's very confusing.
