    I seem to have come across a weird problem.

    Whenever I go to save one of my map files with 'save as', it seems to be ignoring the folder that I select and the name that I choose. It automatically saves it to Steam/steamapps/ and the name is <my steam username>.vmf.

    I found a work around by exporting the map and then loading it from that, and just hitting "save" rather than save as. But that's kind of a pain when I start up a new map. I actually lost quite a bit of work on a map I was working on when I accidentally wrote over it with another project.

    Any ideas as to how I managed to get Hammer to do this or how I can get it to stop?

    I don't know, I have the same problem however when you 'Save as' and you manually add .vmf to the end yourself it works fine tough.

    Oh.

    That is going to be a dumb problem if that's the solution. I swear I didn't have to do that before.

    Thanks though.
