    Hey,
    I Want to reopen an Old Halloween Map i made, but Hammer keeps crashing when i try to open it.
    Im aware there has to be a Problem within the VMF file, but this never happened to me,
    so i dont know what the Error could be.
    I would appreciate if someone could help me tell what the Problem is.

    I've linked the VMF File below

    Does it not crash opening other maps? Verify integrity of your game cache.

    Loads fine for me too in stock Hammer. I did notice a lot of missing assets though. Perhaps its not the map itself, but some custom asset that the map loads?

    I open hammer directly via the executable.

    Try unmounting all your custom content and loading the map.

    Okay, i was able to open the Map, but im on a Laptop now, on my Main PC the Map won't open,
    and there are alot of Untextured Textures, are they the Problem or something else?

    Right now that's my running theory. One of those textures, or maybe some other custom asset in the map.
