sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, please do tell me where i should post it and i certianly will.

i am having trouble with hammer 4.0 (and hammer 3.4). i bought a proper copy of hl2 and wanted to explore creating my own levels.

using hammer 4.0 when i put a start player in and hit run, after trying to compile and a it doing its thing, the monitor switches video modes and then back and nothing happens. meaning the game does not start, i get no error message and the viewports in hammer are all messed up.

im desperate to get this working.

thanks in advance.

I would have personally put it in the HL2 Problems, Errors and Help section. Anyway. We need a little more information mate. Your saying you have put an info_player_start in the level, now thats not ALL you have put there is it? I assume you have created a room, correct? If you have, please post the text you get in the Compile Proccess Window(the one that appears when it compile the map). If not, please refer to this tutorial on how to create a basic room.
