Joiner 2012

C++, Source Engine

Joiner is a little application that reads in a template .vmf file and produces a new .vmf filled with supports based on your template and customised settings or config.

Joiner looks for brushes textured with "dev/dev_slime" and treats each one as a separate room allowing an entire map's worth of supports to be made at once, saving huge amounts of time.

For full instructions on how to use Joiner please refer to the readme included in the download. Programming is not my day job, if you run into any problems using Joiner or have feature suggestions, please, don't hesitate to get in touch. Please send me the log file Joiner made when the error occured and explain what you were doing at the time.

Joiner. Turn slime brushes into nice supports!
