HLBox17b: the ultimate toolbox
Worthy successor to 17Smi and 17Ims, HLBox17b alone accounts for the essential tools that any player and map must have:
Automatic Installation of maps (zip, rar, 7z):
Do not waste time! Install hundreds of maps in seconds without having to worry about files location. HLBox17b do it for you and you can be sure that the map function properly!
Maps Packs creation:
Create a zip archive of your map by incorporating automatically all the necessary resources (textures, sounds, models, sprites, skies, etc ...), and only them!
Extract gcf and vpk files :
View and extract the files included in the steam gcf and vpk files.
Check for textures
View and export the textures included in the wad or bsp (wadincude) files.
Clean steam folder
Clean in one click your steam folder and delete unneeded or duplicates files!
HLBox17b still offers many more features that we invite you to discover for yourself.
Of course, the use of this software is completely free!
45 seconds and 2 clicks to install a custom map of 15Mb on the server!!
After the arrival of 17SMI, the worries of installing maps on a local machine were set for the common people.
Our FTP installation system does the same thing, but directly to a game server, via FTP.
Conceived and designed by 17's Buddies, this feature unique in the world has sometimes been imitated but never equaled !
This function (compatible with maps HL1, HL2 and all its mods) is accessible with one click from our downloads. Just to indicate the settings of your FTP server game and our script will extract the files in the map, directly on your game server using the FTP settings you have indicated.
The results are INCREDIBLE : The measurements showed a gain of speed until 50 times compared with a normal installation! For a map of 15Mb zipped, installation takes 45 seconds while with a traditional, must be close to 32 minutes!!
You can keep three servers favorites, selected from the top window from the dropdown menu. These three servers are by default, your game server, your web server using the variable sv_downloadurl (with or without bzip2) and a possible test server.
Note that even if your FTP login and pass you are requested to use this function, they are not stored in our databases to ensure the security of your data.
I'm also making 16v16 versions / fixing spawns for various map types. By the way, is it allowed to replace a 24 slot map with its 32 slots replica (the geometry of the level has not changed)? Take a look at my GameBanana profile (ID 1676076) for examples.
