    After maybe 3 minutes or less in hammer, it decides to crash!
    But this is only for the tf2 CFG, not anything else!

    There are some errors with the FDG, but all my FDGs are problemed! Just ask for the error messages if you want them.


    So, really what I am trying to say is, HELP! What can I do, is there a fix? Etc.

    Responding would be really helpful!


    Thanks,
    L99

    afaik the errors in the FGD are normal.
    The log file (steamapps/steamname/sourcesdk_content/tf/mapsrc/mapname.log/or whereever you asved your .vmf file) could be helpful, please post it or upload it somewhere.
    What kind of map is it?
    Big/small or maybe a minecraft map?
    We need some more details.
    I´m pretty sure it´s not the fgd

    You dont understand, its not the map that cashes hammer, after a small amount of time, wether a map is loaded or not, hammer crashes, and here is whats wromg with my tf.fdg, all the othe fdg's have errors aswell, but I'm just going to quote the TF. This is what the messages box when you start hammer says:

    Code:
    [COLOR="Red"]
    File C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\lukeme99\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\tf.fdg, line 1312: expected @
    File C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\lukeme99\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\tf.fdg, line 1314: expected identifier after @
    File C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\lukeme99\sourcesdk\bin\orangebox\bin\tf.fdg, line 1314: unrecognized selection name @
    [/COLOR]
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Search Path (GA- etc
    
    Is that a bit better?

    Edit:

    I should be more specific, hammer stops responding, but it keeps on doing something as it has an average Task Mngr CPU "rating" of 15, but bounces between 09-16

    Oh ok, excuse me.
    Is this the first time you ran the sdk since october?
    Because valve made some weird changes and broke the sdk.
    In the Source SDK Mainmenu (where you can select Hammer, Model Viewer...)
    press "Refresh SDK Content" and if thats not working "Reset SDK Configurations" (attention, all mods will disapear out of the list below).

    EDIT:
    Another possible solution is to verify the Source SDK content in the Steam library.

    You think I havnt tried? And I am sick and tierd of people asking the same questions! I have had a thread on steam forums for a long time with pretty much the same responses! I hate having to re-configure MMO:Mod and Garrys Mod over and over! I will try to refresh SDK 1 more time before I start getting irational and delete something important!

    The crash seems unrelated to the errors. when mine crashed I reinstalled the SDK and that worked.

    I do not answer anymore, because i have no idea, not because i´m angry.
    The only interessting thing to know would be:
    Did tf2 hammer ever worked?
    or is this the first time you want to use it?
