The Wiki for UnrealEd was pwnage, so I'm checking out the HL Wiki now...I just got the SDK and so far finding HAMMER pretty straightforward, a few problems getting used to, but no biggie. BTW I've ALWAYS wanted to know what SDK actually stands for, I figure the DK is DevKit, but the S has me lost LoL. These are great linkie-dinkie-blinkie-shinkieS!
