    Hi, I'm new to the mapping scene, and I have a problem with Hammer. When I used it before, it showed all hl2 and tf2 textures, but now it only shows miscellaneous textures like icons and hud elements. Can anyone help me?

    Check your filters and keywords fields at the bottom left of the texture browser.

    Are you using the hammer.exe in Steam\SteamApps\common\Team Fortress 2\bin? Have you run hammer.bat in that folder to configure it for TF2?

    Try the good old "validate game cache".

    I validated my game cache and it did nothing.

    I should also add that if i go to earlier projects, the old tf2 textures will still be there, but i wont be able to access them in the material browser.

    Do you have "Show used textures" or whatever it's called checked?

    That might not be the problem, but it never hurts to try.

    I made a video showing what happens. I probably should have mentioned earlier that tf2 decals, skybox textures, and the ground textures for viaduct_event are available in the browser, as well as textures for mods.

    Hit me if I'm blind, but I see most if not all of the textures used in TF2 appear in that material browser.

    Indeed. Type tf in to the keywords field and you will see them.
