This tool helps you create custom configuration files for the Half-Life and Counter-Strike video games. It is intended for modifying various quality settings.
HLToolz is a Windows software for personalizing gameplay features in Half-Life and Counter-Strike. There are options for adjusting texture attributes, weather effects and other visual elements.
How it works
After starting the program users can import the CFG file from the main game folder to begin editing it. There are options for toggling high quality models, filling texture gaps and adjusting reflections. Additionally, it is possible to enable the MMX technology, precaching functionality, dynamic lighting and detailed shadows. Audio settings for tuning the EAX, reverb and DirectSound attributes are provided as well.
You can improve gameplay performance by choosing the filtering method, texture size, rendering accuracy and image quality. Moreover, there are particle effect parameters and weather options. You are able to adjust the maximum amount of rubble, shells, enemy corpses and smoke puffs that can be displayed at one time.
Please note that HLToolz does not contain instruments for designing new maps. There are other utilities like GtkRadiant for this purpose.
