    Not sure what the problem is, but check out this video showing what happens: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrBeNIeJH7M

    EDIT: NOW IT IS NOT WORKING AT ALL. I tried reinstalling SDK again; figured I'd just leave Hammer up for a while but this time, it's not working for TF2 at all.

    Rage.


    I have tried:
    Upgrading ABS's FGD
    Despite that, my gameinfo.txt still pointed to tf.fgd instead of tf-abs.fgd
    Attempted using another person's gameinfo.txt, updating all the tf2 paths
    Deleted the clientregistry.blob
    Verified TF2's cache
    Uninstalled/Reinstalled SDK
    After reinstalling, SDK allows access to TF2 on the dropdown the first time, but any time after closing SDK and re-opening, it refuses as shown in the video
    And, there *is* a tf subfolder in sourcesdk_content
    Uninstall/Reinstall TF2 itself
    Verified integrity of game files


    (I had help with all of that, as there is no way I would have any clue about any of it besides the uninstall/reinstall, lol) I have posted my issue on the steam sdk forums, but I have been told that those forums suck. :V I hope someone can help me!

    Oh! Just in case, I'm using Windows 7, 64bit, sdk 2009

    EDIT, pasted from below:
    Oh jesus I forgot to include that, yes, I've tried refreshing the content and I have tried resetting configurations. Wow, I feel dumb forgetting that lol :V

    You tried running TF2? There was a update recently so you might need to update your files...

    I assume you've played since then? Have you tried resetting your configurations?

    And read my post, silly goose, I said I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling SDK three times ;D Each time, it would work the FIRST time booting up sdk, but when I would close sdk and reopen, it gives me the same crap. :(

    have you tried reinstalling tf2 itself? Maybe some necisary files where missed during instillation?

    I feel dumb, I didn't even know you could verify the cache integrity for SDK itself. Doing that now... *crosses fingers* T-T

    *sigh* That didn't work either. wtfffff
