    OK, so with the update tonight, Hammer has been completely borked. For some weird reason, anything previously created has to view in the side views. My reason that this is going in to the contests section is because I am curious as to which point you guys would consider an extension to the contest.

    I'm pretty sure that the admins are already considering the possibility of an extension, Nineaxis has been present in the steam chat through this tragic turn of events, witness to all the drama, but YM is the one largely in control of the contest's rules and regulations. When he finds out i don't doubt that there will be atleast another 24 hours added due to how close to the deadline this is. Not to mention no resolution from valve in sight yet.

    If there is an extension, I'll suggest for it to be extended to the following Monday, the 10th. Gives us the weekend to make up for lost time... that is, if its patched soon.

    i have to concur with void - an extra 24 hrs won't cut it as most people don't have the time to just map whenever.
    i myself was actually heavily depending on today to do major work on my map...
    if the problem is still present over this weekend too, well that's gonna really put things in a bind...



    edit: oh also, for me the problem is that the orthogonal view windows are blank (with the occasional model showing up), and selection boxs in the 3d window are black instead of yellow (not a biggy there). - so that kinda means brush manipulation is impossible for me currently. this applies to new map files and old map files. (if it was the 3d view that was messed up for me like it is for grim, i'd still be able to work on the brushwork, and leave the texturing for later... :( )

    oh also, i had this problem before the tf2 update was DL'd. i noticed that the update was in "paused" mode or something, so i thought that if i closed down hammer/sdk and made it finish the upate, that that would fix the issue, but no luck

    This one is about extending the contest, thus its placement. Obvious to un-feebleminded-political-gamers.

    (I love you really)

    Yeah I noticed this too. An extension would be nice, but it's up to YM really. I'll wait for his call.

    Yea, same here really. I actually had an evening to myself thanks to getting a little ahead in my uni work and i ended up just watching some films instead because there was nothing else to do. Now i missed the chance to seriously get my beta out.

    YM's going to add an extension of atleast 24 hours since the problem has persisted, but as you say, it's probably already caused more damage than that to peoples schedules. On the other hand, it's not really fair for him to call it any longer for other entries. It's a bit of a dilemma for sure.
