Thank you all for your support and dedication so far.

Xala's Movie Helper helps you with your Machinimas!

There are some difficulties to create movies in Garry's mod... Both people who are already filming for a long time as those who have just started know that some important commands are simply not listed at all and that some things tend to mess up the scenes with no nice way to avoid. Because of this, the masters of the universe told me to start doing this tool. Let's try to make our lives somehow easier.

With XMH you can

About languages

If translations are available, the tool changes its language according to the game, otherwise English is selected.

But you can force it with the following command:

xmh_forcelanguage "options"

The current "options" are:

pt -> Portuguese from Brazil
en -> US English
game -> Tries to use the game's language


For support and testing:

Francis, Pepeu, Matsilagi, HomemCamisinhaCósmica, NickMBR, TaBoo, BombermanMaldito, LuanGames, Reborn, Phillipe, Crazze, VirusSSj5, Qualee2, Magnum and many more.

Thank you very much for your support. My tools may not be the best of all, but I make them from the heart and for people. Don't forget to leave the link here when the work is ready. I was very happy with spanky's comment too, the years fly by.
