    So, since the dawn of time, I have been using hammer, and have been playing around with it for about 100 hours. But I have always used it as a non-steam game, linking it to the .exe file in the game files. I did download Source SDK initially, and followed all the tutorials and stuff, but always got errors when starting/opening maps such as Failed to Load Default Scheme File. The Map Views may be missing some visual elements.

    I open up source SDK, click Source Engine MP and then Team Fortress 2. It then, when a new map is loaded, looks like this: http://imgur.com/iEnJkfU

    I cannot do anything, no matter what setting I change, as far as I can see. Those white lines only appear when I have hovered over them.

    It is impossible to load old maps.

    Please help as I want to clock hours and look MLG D;

    Load it up the same way you did before and the SDK separately. That's what I do to keep track of my "played" hours in hammer.

    Pre Steam Pipe it was launched through the SDK, but that isn't the case anymore.
