    Hello Gents,
    I am having problems Starting Hammer for TF2. I have tried everything.
    -Checking Integrity
    -Running it as Administrator
    -etc.
    If you have any idea of how I can fix this, tell me.

    What *SPECIFICALLY* is the problem you're having?

    Have you launched hammer before and have it work? If not, find the hammer.bat file and launch that, THEN launch the hammer.exe that you find you the bin folder of Team Fortress 2's steamapps folder.


    If you've done that, could you explains the conditions?

    I have, But I guess Hammer hates me.
    I open the .bat file then the .exe multiple times. It won't work. It shows the Hammer Logo then crashes.

    Does it crash crash, as in just close completely? Or does it crash and then just hang?

    Could be a memory issue? Have you restarted your computer and tried again?

    Maybe Crash is the wrong term. How about.... Just not start.
    Here is the order of events
    1. I double click the program
    2. Hammer Logo Appears
    3.A box with margins appears
    4. Then It all closes
    5. A new file appears in my bin folder named "hammer_20140928_172319_1_accessviolation.mdmp"

    Once again if you have a solution Tell me it please!!!!!!

    If you're using a custom SourceScheme.res file (Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\platform\resource) that changes how the console/server browser look then hammer seems to crash instantly, if you're doing that try deleting the file and relaunching hammer.

    I don't have a custom file under that name. I found one, removed it from the folder, tried again, And it still doesn't work.

    I would also like to add that Hammer works on ALL of my other source games. It just won't launch for TF2.
