Mounting Games

In order for Hammer++ to load content from the various games that Momentum Mod mounts, follow these steps:

  1. Extract materials, models, and sounds from .vpk files:
    • Extract Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\pak01_dir.vpk into Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\csgo_content
    • Extract Counter-Strike Source\cstrike\cstrike_pak_dir.vpk into Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\cstrike_content
    • Extract Portal 2\portal2\pak01_dir.vpk into Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\portal2_content
    • Extract Team Fortress 2\tf\tf2_misc_dir.vpk and Team Fortress 2\tf\tf2_textures_dir.vpk into Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\tf2_content
  2. Mount Momentum Mod content by running this command in a command prompt: mklink /D "<path to steam games>\Counter-Strike Global Offensive\csgo\momentum_content" "<path to steam games>\Momentum Mod Playtest\momentum"
  3. Open Momentum Mod Playtest\momentum\gameinfo.txt and copy the following contents into the SearchPaths section:
    game        "csgo/csgo_content"
    game        "csgo/cstrike_content"
    game        "csgo/portal2_content"
    game        "csgo/tf2_content"
    game        "csgo/momentum_content"
    
  4. Open Hammer++ and the content from these games should load now.

Warning: If Hammer++ crashes on startup, you may have to delete the particles folders that were extracted from the .vpk files.
