Duct tape was featured on the hl2 podcast podcast17 yesterday. Although they weren't sure about the uses of duct-tape it was nice to see duct-tape recognized in the hl2 community. I personaly love the podcast17 podcast and I am an avid listener so be sure to check it out.

DuctTape now has a lovely new website to call it's home. You can find news, various release versions and documentation guides scattered around this site.

Let me know if there are any noticeable bugs etc but be advised IE6 is not supported on this site!

DuctTape Alpha First Release!

April 25th by coder0xff

After much work, DuctTape is still incomplete, but has some pretty useful stuff in it. It's now available on the downloads page as a zipped installer. Just unzip, and run setup.exe

Note: The package is labeled 0.12a but the software says 0.11a. This is OK. The next update will correct the problem.

A more thorough explanation of DuctTape is in order. The intent of DuctTape is to unify and automate creation of scripts, command line utilities, and compiling. For example, DuctTape can create and compile an SMD into a MDL in a matter of a few clicks. It also contains a soundscape editor.

We introduce a new concept of scripted texture builds - which are authored graphically, of course. Rather than having to go into VTFEdit everytime you change your source image, DuctTape will detect that the source has changed and rebuild the VTFs that are based upon it. This type of functionality is ubiquitous, actually. If you change a map, SMD, QC, etc DuctTape will rebuild your outdated game content with the click of a button (The build mod button in the toolbar).

Feel free to use the public features of the Sourceforge page to submit bug reports, feature suggestions, and support requests. Please be sure to search before you post!

I hope you find DuctTape useful. Thanks for downloading.
