I really need some help on giving me a tutorial on how to make a Fistful of Frags map. I've consulted many videos and websites and I still didn't get a proper or current solution.

    The only thing you need is the FGD file that belongs to the game, and even that's optional, just really helpful, it's just a plain-text file telling Hammer what entities are available, which parameters they have, which flags, what I/O chain commands and what they should look like in the case of point entities. You don't explicitly need it since you can make these entities, parameters, chains and possibly flags without it, Hammer will just give errors you know don't matter.

    Everything else is pretty much standard Source engine stuff, VBSP, VRAD, VVIS, etc (which is why you can play HL2 levels in Portal).

    So tell me, what exactly is the problem you're having?

    I got this message while directly launching Hammer:

    Path_To_Steam/SteamApps/common/Fistful of Frags/fof/gameinfo.txt is missing

    What should I do?

    Also when I launch Source SDK I can only choose Team Fortress 2

    You should probably not use the SDK, but I haven't mapped for a mod before, so I'm not sure.
