    Hey guys,

    Iv just tried to open my maps in hammer and it seems my hammer is broken. Untill 20 mins ago it was working fine but not whenever i try open any map (itll load it then when the 3d screen is about to show the 3d image) i get this message.

    the instruction at "0x0d6f3618" referenced memory at "0x0d6f3618". The momory could not be read

    Any idea

    try and verify your .gcf files by right clicking on the sdk game in steam, and selecting the verification tool.

    good luck

    hrmm it seems I'm having a similar problem. Whenever I load a map, Hammer closes itself after the loading is done.

    I also am experiencing this problem since about 7pm today (GMT) :(

    Edit: looks more like a full scale source update, ALL my source games now have 'news' in the update column

    I'm getting...

    "The instruction at "0x0d593618" referenced memory at "0x0d593618". The memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program"

    whenever I try and open a map created before the TF2 update that was released today. I can create a new map and save it and open it without issue but nothing from previously.

    Have verified the cache on the sdk and refreshed the files, no joy. Does this look like a borked update?

    is there anyway to rollback to a previous version or something? And how would you no update? it does it automatically.

    I cannot open old maps, nor can I do anything in a newly created map. Hammer crashes when I try to create a brush

    Damn...hate to be the cheese standing alone, but everything seems fine to me. Loads, saves, creates new brushes just like before the update. Obviously something is messed up, but it might be something like old video card drivers or something strange like that.

    just use the old engine hammer. works fine!

    under Source SDK launch options --> "-engine ep1" (without quotes)

    reload SDK, hammer, etc .. and rock on!

    edit: i just released, you'd still have to have an old ep1 hack for TF2 editing already in-place (like the type we used during TF2 beta mapping).. the only reason i still have it is, well, my gfx card doesnt work right with the new hammer :(
