Hammer is not working ;(

A Forum Thread for Half-Life 2

Hammer doesn't like HL2.

So, recently I got HL2 working. And I wanted to try and make some maps for it, and so I made a config in Hammer for it, and... Hammer didn't like it(for some odd reason). And now all the little screens are completly black(they still work though). So now I don't know what to do, I tried re-configuring, deleting user info and nothing helped.

Maybe somebody has also encountered this bug, and will help me.

Anyways, thanks for any help.

    Do you have some pictures of your problem ? Apparently, if everything works fine, you just have to enable the grid on 2D Views. Should be somewhere in the settings or in a toolbar.

    That's weird, your grid is enabled.

    I'm not sure if it can help, but are you using the Hammer from the HL2 files ? => Steam/steamapps/common/Half-Life2/bin/hammer.exe ?

    And here is a picture of the configuration I have :
