Is your Bloodgulch in your "maps" directory or have you moved it to a separate location? It needs to be in the "maps" folder to work properly. Also, is this for normal Halo PC or Halo trial?

its for halo trial. i used HMT before but i just got a new laptop, and i've been having problems with all the halo modding tools with it. but, i tried the map in the "maps" folder but it wouldn't work, so i copyed the map and moved the copy to my desktop and it did the same thing, then i downloaded the original bloodgulch.zip from filefront, because maybe i just got a bad map, but it still won't work, it always says "file not found"

1) Do you have Microsoft .NetFramework? HMT needs it to run. 2)Try re-downloading HMT 3)Make sure you include any and ALL other files besides just the program. HMT needs these to run.

HMT won't even load if u don't have .NetFramework so it couldn't be that

.NET Framework 1.1 is required to run HMT v3.5, not just an up-to-date version.

Also, make sure that the map is not heavily modified, that way, it won't give you exceptions.

And no, you can open a map file without it being in the maps folder. I do it all the time.
