    My hammer is running in 2 fps, both manipulation screens (i mean these screens Y/Z X/Z etc...). How to fix that ? radious Culling is not active.

    Ensure there is enough PC resources for hammer. As in, your computer isn't prehistoric and nothing heavy is running, also look into complicatedness of the map you're editing. Try verifying game you're mapping for's cache.

    I'm very mad... So lets explain this. No. I have enough resources for hammer (it's not the first time that i've launched it in this computer). Nothing heavy is running while i was using hammer.
    Things i've noticed when i start it
    1. the displacement/texture ( the shift+A function) appears when i start, then it goes to the Hammer logo.
    2. It "opens" small instances of the hammer, but using low CPU resources (SOMETIMES)
    3. My hammer is using a total of 150mb
    The map size... Don't matter, because even if i start a new project (empty map) it runs fucking slow (2/10 fps) in bouth Y/Z,X/Z,3D windows.

    Do you have radius culling on? It's the button with an "R" in a red circle. I'm not sure what it's for, but it makes Hammer run like ass on even a supercomputer.

    Might be something related to WIN10 ? Because i've tried to run it in compatibility mode to WIN7 (becuase on win7 it worked fine) but it didn't solve the problem. I tried to re-install the bin folder... I'll try to run CSGO's hammer

    I've found some SHIT. a dll that's loaded on hammer called nvd3dum.dll is above normal, overflowing something, causing lag. I've found a post on steam community saing that i need to download the DirectX SDK to disable the debug mode default setted to solve this.
