ok as it says you need to download the ZHLT file....place that wherever you want it i.e desktop/my documents set the files up as explained in the tutorial. Then when you are in valve hammer editor you click file>expot to map and save that file in your ZHLT folder then all you need to do then is double click the .bat file you made as explained in the tutorial! confusing but you will catch on

It's like making a pizza:

1. Build it out of dough, cheese, toppings
2. Cook it in the oven
3. Put it on the table
4. Eat it


So making a map in the same 4 steps:

1. Build it out of brushes, entites
2. Cook it in the compilers
3. Put it in your cstrike/maps/ folder
4. Eat it (or play it)


More detail:

1. After you build it, put it in the oven (Export to .MAP, save in your zhlt folder)
2. Cook it by running your .bat file
3. The .bat file will put it on the table for you (table = cstrike/maps/ folder)
4. Eat it (this is easy, just load CS and start a new game on your map)


YOU CAN'T EAT IT UNTIL YOU COOK IT

And sometimes it doesn't cook right. If you get a .err file, it failed to cook and you need to fix it.

ok not working.. -.-

what i did was.. i went to my ZHLT folder.. and i made a text document.. then i exported Basic.map to that ZHLT folder.. then i copied..

@echo off
hlcsg basic
hlbsp basic
hlvis basic
hlrad basic
copy basic.bsp "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\MYEMAIL\counter-strike\cstrike\maps"
pause
"C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 10 -dev +sv_cheats 1 +map basic

in the text document..

then i renamed the file Basic.bat

and i copied the Basic.bat file and put it into my.. C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\EMAIL\counter-strike\cstrike\maps folder..

Then what? and is all this right so far? :)

hlcsg: Error: Parsing Entity 0, expected '{' got '@echo'

It sounds like you accidentally renamed your .bat to .bsp.

BAD!!

Never rename anything to .bsp. The compilers will create the .bsp for you, using the .map.


HERE'S what you need:

1. Put your .bat, .map, and ZHLT all in one folder.
2. Run the .bat
3. Check and see that it ran, and that it copied your shiny new .bsp to the game maps folder.


ALSO: Does it really say MYEMAIL in your .bat file? It should be replaced with your actual steam account name.
