    There's something funny when I compile a map in Hammer and run TF2 afterwards.

    Let's say my own TF2 resolution is at 1280 x 1024. But when Hammer runs the map and TF2 after compiling, it'll become 1024 x 768, an older setting.

    Is there any solution to this?

    Don't run the map straight after compiling. Load up TF2 manually.

    Set your TF2 launch commands to
    -w 1280 -h 1024

    Oh, and I just noticed I had this in the wrong forum. My bad! Mods please kindly help move to the mapping questions forum.

    And thanks for the help Psy and Joodude.

    Why would you want to do that? :huh:
    The only "bad" thing I know about loading your map directly from hammer is that if you try to join other servers you will get disconnected frequently until you restart TF2.

    As Joodude said, just add " - 1280 -h 1024 " to your additional parameters on hammer compile settings.

    Because running TF2 or any Source game for that matter has caused myself and lots of people lots of trouble. I usually leave it running in the background anyway.

    Really? I've played for hours after launching it after hammer...(What...I got bored?) and had no problems.

    Weird, I always get "Client timed out" like 40 seconds after joining a server if I launch it from hammer.
