    I can open up hammer fine but here is the main problem.


    I click file then open and click on a map. Then as soon as I do that it says

    "Failed to load some default scheme file. The map views may be missing some visual elements."

    then I click ok then it says

    "reading chunks" then It stops and I get an error and the next error says this

    "Model models/props_lights/lamp001.mdl not found and models/error.mdl couldn't be loaded."


    please help is there anyway I can fix this???

    Have you tried verifying the integrity of TF2?

    Right click on TF2 in your steam library then click on properties and then local files and then 'Verify integrity of game cache...'

    Make sure you aren't opening hammer via the Source SDK app, as that's deprecated. Launch team fortress 2/bin/hammer.bat the first time, then use hammer.exe in the same folder.

    Thanks that worked by I have one more question.


    Is there any way to view it like without any non textured blocks and so that its like the real map view

    or

    is there anyway to make the map a .obj file?

    You mean like hiding nodraw and stuff?

    You can hide the clip brushes and stuff by unchecking Tool Brushes and Triggers over in the visibility panel on the right. And then you can make nodraw faces disappear by clicking the "no draw" button on the far end of the toolbar at the top.

    I think you're in 3D flat view; click 'camera' in the upper left of the viewport and select 3D shaded textured or 3D textured
