    We need a lot more specifics if we're going to help you, do you know the basics of Hammer? Have you mapped for other TF2 gamemodes? Are you having trouble with layout or entities or popfiles? This kind of information is crucial for us to be able to assist you.

    Mann vs Machine maps won't spawn any robots unless you have generated a nav mesh. Load up mvm_example in TF2 and type "sv_cheats 1; nav_generate" in console, that should fix the bots not spawning.

    To set up the entities for Mann vs Machine you can look at mvm_example in Hammer, or check out our Decompiled Valve Maps Thread and you can look at the entities from an official map.

    If you have any more troubles with specific parts of the entities after looking at the examples, we're always willing to answer questions.

    How about you compile the valve one?

    The official distribution of the example map comes with a nav mesh prebuilt.
