    Every one out of a couple times I look at an entity's Flags, Hammer crashes. It doesn't really affect anything, but its annoying and was wondering if there is a fix...also wondering if anyone else has this problem.

    I saw this thread, but it's old. It describes my problem exactly.

    This also happens to me. Apparently some people say it's caused by having the game engine running whilst mapping, or refreshing your SDK should help but I'd like to know more.

    That thread is as far as it got. If there's a fix I don't know about it yet. Are you crashing 100% of the time, or the ~50% like I described?

    It's pretty much 100% of the time the VERY FIRST time I make an entity and go to its flags tab. Then it's ~50% of the time or less after that.

    Off topic: The first time I saw this thread, for a second i thought it was named something else...


    On topic: Have you tried moving your maps to another folder, uninstalling hammer, and installing it again? That fixed a problem I had a with it a while back.

    I've tried that already. I actually didn't start posting this thread until I reinstalled SDK after being away for a while.

    I'm going to try a few attempts at fixing it again, I'll let you know what works, if anything, for me.
