    I'm suddenly getting this error when I try to load up my previous maps to work on.

    Missing Material 'editor/wireframe'. Go to Tools I Options I Game Configurations and verify that your game directory is correct. Also, whenever I start TF2 regularly, it closes as soon as I open it.

    I've verified the files of both SDK and TF2, reset my computer, uninstalled ABS' pack, and reset my hammer settings several times, but I can't get it to work.

    The only notable change that has occurred was a Windows 10 Update last night. I was working on hammer last night around 10 when I decided to shut down and update for windows 10. The next morning, I get this message.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    Use the hammer.exe found under SteamApps/common/Team Fortress 2/bin. The SDK launcher tools haven't worked since 2013.

    Oh, I thought you were using the SDK launcher Hammer since it's visibly open in your taskbar. Have you tried verifying the game cache files again?

    I have already tried verifying the game cache files again. I still have the error.

    The error tells me to go to this part of the hammer options menu:

    I don't see anything out of the ordinary, is there something I missed?

    With everything TF2 related closed? Because otherwise it plain won't work.

    Yes, everything tf2 related was closed.

    I also tried uninstalling all of hammer, and tf2 related content from my computer and then re-installing it.

    The game still refuses to start, and I get the same error as last time.

    All I had to do was update my AMD driver.

    Thanks for the help.
