Hammer Crashes
 
Everytime I try to start a new map or open one of the supplied Arena maps, Hammer crashes. I've reinstalled the SDK, ran Emergence before starting up the SDK, deleted the sdk folders, reinstalled the sdk, rinse, repeat.

Can you post your DXDIAG information?

Did you run "SiN Episodes" after downloading the SDK?

Yes.. yes I have...

Sorry, long day.

The only times that I've had Hammer act in that way is when I was running Hammer after "SiN Episodes" crashed because of a driver issues.

A reboot fixed it, but that's besides the point.

In your sinepisodessdk folder, do you have any .mdmp files?

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
No. i dont seem to have any files with that extension.

Do either of you have Half-Life 2? If so, can you run Hammer from the Source SDK and see if you have the same problem?

Blitzy 07-27-2006 11:42 AM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
I can run everything in Half-Life 2's SDK just fine, No hammer crashes.

Same here.

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
Just FYI, I dont think the latest patch was supposed to fix anything SDK related but, Hammer still does crash... but Model Viewer and Face Poser work perfectly.
I remember Hammer acting like this when Valve had the Beta SDK out to the public, and everytime i tried to revert, it crashed just like this.

I wish I could give you more specific information to help fix the problem :(

I'm trying to get an X800 XT so I can try to reproduce it. I've got an X700 in my box right now, but that's obviously not close enough.

Blitzy,

After putting an X800 XT into my machine, I was able to get the crash to reproduce, but after uninstalling all of my ATI drivers and installing the latest Catalyst 6.7 drivers, the crash went away.

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
Wow, now that's above and beyond the call of duty.

Blitzy 07-28-2006 03:15 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
Wow, I never expected you to go as far as you have in trying to help! I'm impressed.

Anyway, I uninstalled ATI drivers, deleted all stray driver files via Driver Cleaner Pro running in Safe Mode and then installed the 6.7 Catalyst.

I still get the same crashing. :\

Michael_Russell 07-28-2006 04:28 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
Do you still not have any crash dumps? The only way I was able to reproduce this crash was with whacked-out drivers, unfortunately.

Blitzy 07-28-2006 06:51 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
Nope, it's not creating any dump files.

wisecode 07-28-2006 07:10 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
From the Game Launcher:
1) Right-click on Sin Episodes SDK
2) Click on Properties
3) Local Files tab
4) Verify Integrity of tool cache
5) Defragment cache files

Launch the SDK then click on both utilities, Refresh SDK Content and Reset Game Configurations.

Blitzy 07-28-2006 07:15 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
Nope, didn't work. Starting to sound like a broken record :P

Michael_Russell 07-28-2006 07:55 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
I'll keep seeing if I can find a way to reproduce it so we can kill it, but at the moment, I'm at a loss. I'm sorry.

Blitzy 07-28-2006 10:12 PM

Re: Hammer Crashes
 
It's ok, I'm quite grateful for the lengths you went to! :)

I have the same problem, and the HL2 sdk works.
Made a DxDiag file:

But my Laptop can run hammer in the sinep sdk!

I'm having this Problem, too. HL2 SDK works fine for me, too.
Here's my dxdiag.txt:
