    I'm trying to move around my map and the camera suddently changes to an ''angle view''. What I can see, I see it angled and it is really annoying. Also it changes the way the camera moves. Any clue how to fix this or maybe I,m doing something wrong? It happens like every 5 minutes and isn't changing back for 5 minutes...

    are you two talking about the Z button thingy? I remember hitting the Z button by error and getting that weird view I couldn't get away from. well just press Z again to exit this view.

    No, z button is activating the camera rotation with the mouse instead of arrows. Our problem is changing the angle of the camera, which is a pretty strange problem. It hapenned the first time for me today, after the steam client update. Maybe a fail from Valve on Source, again?

    There is also another easy way I found that would let you get the camera back to normal, which is to quickly move your mouse from camera zone to grid zone, a few times. It should get back to normal after like 20 times... (do it rapidly).

    I clicked on the intersection of the boundaries between all the viewpoints and dragged it around a bit to fix it.

    I think what's happening is it's showing a fullscreen view, but cropping everything outside of the viewpoint to give a weird effect.

    yeah I had this (if its where the cam would suddenly go to a wonky sideways 3d view for no apparant reason!). Pretty annoying lol.

    I had it but after rightclicking camera->3d textured shaded polygons it seemed to fix itself. Try that.

    I was having this issue a couple of nights ago, I don't know what happened in between now and there but I've seemed to fix it. I thought it was a Windows 7 thing, and in between the last time and now I've installed the latest video drivers and set my Hammer.exe to load with Vista SP2 compatibility options.

    I don't know what to say about the error on XP and Vista though...

    yup. having the same issue, and only recently. it definitely looks like its rendering the camera to all 4 views - the entire hammer window, instead of just the 3d viewport - and then cropping it to the viewport. fiddling with views or object selection or something tends to randomly fix it.

    Yea i have this problem too. Instead of going straight when I press the direction WASD the camera goes off at a weird random angle.

    Camera view is becoming skewered

    [​IMG]

    Top: The skewered vision
    Bottom: what it's normally.

    Recently (just today) the camera view has been acting up - all the others are fine. I'll be moving around within the view, and then all of a sudden it will mess up and distort to look like the top image. I can just about get it back to normal but it keeps happening. The only things that have changed since the last time I opened hammer are:
    Yesterday I got a BSOD, and today I refreshed the SDK content.

    Anybody else having this problem?

    I had this problem, I found clicking the other views reset it, sometimes. No idea whats causing it.
