"Failed to load the default scheme file. The map views may be missing some virtual elements."

I have absolutely no idea if this goes here or not.
But anyway, my friend has been trying to create a map for Garry’s Mod using hl2ep2 textures and CS:S textures.
This happens every time he tries to start hammer/load the map file?
I dunno, he didn’t explain in full detail, this happened to me a while ago, but I don’t remember how I fixed it.

OK, he says he just gets black viewports, and not the error message above, this happens after map load.

I’ve tried to help him in every way I could, but we can’t seem to find a solution, so I’ve came here.
Anyway, I need to know some possible way to fix this and how I would fix it, because he needs to get this thing opened.
Can anybody here help? If this thread is actually in the wrong section I apologize, never posted in the Mapping forum before and I’m not really clear of it.

Also, before asking to open the hammer.exe in bin, he told me it doesn’t work that way for him either.

Try opening it through OS:\steam\steamapps\garrysmod\bin\hammer.exe
or you might have to open it through cstrike and make it so it saves to garrysmod :slight_smile:

This method doesn’t work, it gives either TF2, DoD or CSS. After selecting CSS it says that it cannot find the gameinfo.txt, so I put it into the folder it asked (either GMod or CSS gameinfo), but the it just shows up one small window which quickly disappears and the thing crashes. I recommend downloading the Source SDK Base 2013, going into bin and running Hammer from there. However I am not sure if you should use HL2, HL2DM or create a GMod one- I am also beginning with this!
