i finally have been able to get a good enough system for halflife2 and i want to make weapons for it-- i mean both model and code them. i know you can get the xsi modeler for mods for free, but i don't have a compatible coding environment (devcpp doesn't work). the one they recommend is a little expensive, does can anyone offer any solutions?

They recommend Visual Studio .NET 2003.

What you could do is get Visual Studio .NET 2005 Express Edition (which is free) however I'm not sure if it can compile the SDK properly. What I heard was VALVe were working with Microsoft to make a free compiler for the SDK however that could of been a rumour.

So I'd say try VC++ 2005 Express (http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/express/visualc/) if it doesnt work then the best bet would be to get Visual Studio .NET 2003

All I know is that they are working to get VS Express and the Source SDK functional together.

Download the Microsoft Visual Studio Toolkit 2003 and use that compiler instead of the standard one used with Dev-C++, GCC. The Windows Platform SDK might also help you, but since I haven't compiled the HL2 SDK myself yet, I cannot share my experiences with that SDK in particular. But I've compiled tons of MSVC projects using the free MSVC compiler (the Toolkit written above).
