We all know that with the new steampipe update, our beloved hammer from SourceSDK is giving us grief.
Well this guy managed to find a fix for it:
For anyone too lazy to watch the video, here’s what you gotta do:
Step 1: Navigate to steam/steamapps/common/Team Fortress 2/bin
Step 2: Locate the hammer.exe in the bin folder. Make a shortcut or whatever you want with it unless you live navigating to the steam/steamapps/common/Team Fortress 2/bin whenever you want to start hammer.
Step 3: Navigate to your favourite game folder (CSS, EP2, Portal, whatever) and copy the folder that contains all the data (see table below for the folders)
Step 4: Paste the folder into steam/steamapps/common/Team Fortress 2
Step 5: Run hammer, set up your options manually, and make awesome maps.
Hope this helped.
