cant get hammer to work

Hey guys, Is the hammer Tool the only way of editing maps?
It keeps crashing for me, And I cant get a chance to actully use it…

Editing maps?

If you decompile a map to edit it, you will find they often have issues and crash on launch.

If you are actually making a map, then tell us the error and your pc specs, and perhaps we can help you

Try launching it from its directory. You can find this by going to My Computer and searching for “hammer”.

You’ll probably get numerous results named hammer.exe. Choose the one with the directory of the game you want to map for.
For instance:

hammer.exe - - - - - - - (C:/Program Files(x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2)

Create a shortcut, for easy access.
