    Hey guys!

    I've been trying to make a map lately and noticed when i try to start Hammer, it says something along the lines of "D:\SteamLibary\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\gameinfo.txt is missing"
    ^ Yes i forgot the R, and i'll get to this in a second

    Now about the Misspelled "Libary" I realized this when I already installed TF2 on another steam folder i created after named "SteamLibrary", I've tried setting the game config in Source SDK and when I launch it from there it works. (edit: I deleted the "SteamLibary" folder)

    Why I don't use the Source SDK, because im trying to download Boojum Snark's Team Fortress 2 Mapping Resource Pack for following UEAKCrash's Tutorial. (edit: I need to run hammer.exe from the bin folder in the TF2 Directory to install it)

    Please Help!

    Where are you booting Hammer from? Cause I see this is a D drive and not the default C drive. just trying to map out where stuff is

    I guess verify game files for TF2 next. Then search C drive for the steam folder location and if there is a tf2 folder boot from there. D drive might be messing with it but unlikely

    Have you checked gameconfig.txt to make sure it's pointing to the right places?
