    I have an old vmf from 2014, a map that I was quite dedicated to working on (99.99% of the time solo), and I now when I try to load it up, it crashes. I have the vmf as an attachment, if you guys can inspect it, that would be great. I don't know what to do, google brings up virtually nothing.

    depending on how old, it might be a problem with ammo packs.

    Ah yes, good old times when the ammopacks were crashing hammer.

    Back then I had to replace them with info_target entities, so I could actually work on the map, and later edit those into ammopack entities in np++ before every compile.

    Or you could fix the FGD. The ABS pack has since long been updated to fix that crash.

    I just installed it, still crashes. Also, I noticed it leaves a dump file on each failed map load. Oh, and when I said old, I meant last edited ~Christmas 2014.

    vmf is here and dump is here.

    This map is my most important project, and I'm quite proud of how far it's come, considering I started out knowing not a lot about hammer save the basics, so as you can imagine, I really want to get it working again.
