Brand new install of Steam. I own and have installed the following games:
 +
* Half-Life 2
 +
* Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
 +
* Half-Life 2: Episode One
 +
* Half-Life 2: Episode Two
 +
* Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
 +
* Half-Life Deathmatch: Source
 +
* Half-Life: Source
 +
plus others. I haven't played them yet.
 +
 +
 +
In the TOOLS list I have installed the following:
 +
* Source SDK
 +
* Source SDK Base 2006
 +
* Source SDK Base 2007
 +
 +
When I launched the Source SDK, the "Engine Version" was set to "Source Engine 2009", the "Current Game" was set to "Half-Life 2". I clicked on "Create a Mod". On the next screen I selected "Modify Half-Life 2 Single Player" and then clicked "Next >". I browsed to a directory and gave the mod a name, after clicking "Next >" I got this error:

when starting source SDK i get a message stating that there are no engines on my computer the it can find do i need different version of SDK to get the counter strike source engine to show up so i can make a new map.
 +
 
 +
Try launching the SDK with the "-engine ep1" launch option (no quotes).  If that doesn't work, the problem is (probably) with your gamecfg.txt.  It is possible to edit this file manually, but using the SDK menu to "reset game configurations" would be safer.  Oh yeah, you need to own Counter-Strike:Source, too.--[[User:BitMage|Bit Mage]] 14:25, 18 Dec 2008 (PST)

== Direct Hammer shortcut ==
 +
 
 +
The SDK launcher program doesn't remember which game type you were working on last (I'm sure it used to). So the shortcut to Hammer causes it to load the wrong game type (unless you are working on whatever it defaulted to).

Does the SDK Launcher have a command line option for the game to default to?

Thanks in advance.
  
As suggested, I have tried to add -allowdebug and -dev to the launch options, but it still crashes out with a "ding" sound and without any error box.

Can't open CreateModFiles\source2009\gameinfo_sp.txt

Brand new install of Steam. I own and have installed the following games:

  • Half-Life 2
  • Half-Life 2: Deathmatch
  • Half-Life 2: Episode One
  • Half-Life 2: Episode Two
  • Half-Life 2: Lost Coast
  • Half-Life Deathmatch: Source
  • Half-Life: Source

plus others. I haven't played them yet.


In the TOOLS list I have installed the following:

  • Source SDK
  • Source SDK Base 2006
  • Source SDK Base 2007

When I launched the Source SDK, the "Engine Version" was set to "Source Engine 2009", the "Current Game" was set to "Half-Life 2". I clicked on "Create a Mod". On the next screen I selected "Modify Half-Life 2 Single Player" and then clicked "Next >". I browsed to a directory and gave the mod a name, after clicking "Next >" I got this error:

Sdksperror.jpg

Clicking OK only repeats the Error message, it is stuck in a loop. Unsigned comment added by Just in case (talkcontribs). Please use four tildes (~~~~) to sign your username.

KNOWN BUG
This happens because the 2009 code (which would aptly be name "Source SDK Base 2009") has not yet been released, but the function for creating a mod from it has. At this time only 2006 and 2007 can be used for creating a mod. --Welsh Mullet 11:36, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
So, is there a work around for this? Trying to start a CS:S mod, but it's not on the 2007 or 2006 lists. Also, the issue is the same for multi-player, but ends with "gameinfe_mp.txt".
EDIT: Also, selecting either "Source SDK Base 2007" or "Source SDK Base 2006" on Steam starts up Source Test using the Lost Coast map.
I have to launch "Source SDK" from Steam, then select "Source Engine 2007" or "Source Engine 2006" or "Source Engine 2009" from the Engine Version drop down menu.
2006 contains HL:DM. 2007 contains nothing. 2009 contains HL2, Ep1, Ep2, Portal, TF2, DoD:S and CS:S. Cheers --KieranM17 01:00, 12 January 2011 (UTC)
And what we will do now? f*ck Dj vla 20:58, 19 February 2011 (UTC)
Simple as, you cannot yet build a mod on the 2009 code unless you are doing a content only mod. (See moding portal) If you wish to build a game that is similar to CS:S, my advice is to start on the 2007 base, select template mod and then mount the CS:S files via the gameinfo.txt --Welsh Mullet 04:44, 20 February 2011 (UTC)

I guess you've already come across this then: Source_SDK_will_not_launch (and also the article's talk page, especially the potential solution discussed there). Hope you can fix your problem, I really don't know how lend you further help at the moment. --Etset 05:41, 21 Feb 2008 (PST)

Issues with the Article itself

SDK_Does_Not_Compile_Under_Linux is no longer relevant after the 2006-08-14 SDK update.

Is it possible to add some of the 'SDK code issues' errors text in there, so a search engine could list this article? The MountAppFilesystem() error probably has a handful of people still looking for help. Hell, after 2 weeks of looking for help, I finally found an forum that had this article linked here. And scary is that I've been running through this Valve Developer Community since the start!

SDK engine code error

when starting source SDK i get a message stating that there are no engines on my computer the it can find do i need different version of SDK to get the counter strike source engine to show up so i can make a new map.

Maybe because you have no games that use that engine? --Welsh Mullet 12:06, 7 July 2010 (UTC)

No, tha can't be it because i have half life 2, Counter strike and HL2: ep1. and i have infact use them before i even made a mod out of half life 2! so that cant be the problem. --No Return Production 04:16, 9 July 2010 (UTC)

well i have HL2, Ep1, and EP2 and Ep1 is under 2007. and Portal, TF2,and HL2 Ep2 is on the 2009 tab but CCS and HL2 should be at the 2006 tab but i can't even open it!--No Return Production 06:08, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
Right, refresh your sdk content and reset your game configurations. Deathmatch should appear under 2006, Episode 2 under 2007 (But you can't use those tools on it, it's just so you have something to click to access the create mod wizard for the 2007 base) and everything else (HL2, ep1, ep2, portal, tf2) under 2009. --Welsh Mullet 11:35, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah it worked Thank you! --No Return Production 04:41, 11 July 2010 (UTC)

Help with Half-Life 2 DM,Source SDK 2006

Okay, so I load up SDK, go to the hammer editor under 2006.... I want to make maps for half-life 2 deathmatch
Source SDK 2006 Half-Life 2- Deathmatch.png
Hammer loads up just fine, but when I tell it to create a new file, or open a previous one, I get this "Fatal Error" message 4 times in a row

 Missing material 'editor/wireframe'. Go to Tools | Options | Game Configurations
 and verify that your game directory is correct.


Now my Screen looks like this....

....and I cant make maps. Can someone please help me... I've looked all arround the internet for a solution. --BenVlodgi 01:36, 5 October 2010 (UTC)

Your going to need to create a new setup for it under source 2009. --Wazanator 12:53, 5 October 2010 (CDT)
How would I go about doing that?? --BenVlodgi 19:32, 8 October 2010 (UTC)
Select "Source Engine 2009" and then doubleclick "Edit Game Configuration". Click on "Add" and enter "Half-Life 2: Deathmatch" in the Name field and in the Directory field, browse to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Half-Life 2 Deathmatch\hl2mp". Click OK. Click OK again to add it. Then it won't appear straight away. A workaround for that is to select "Source Engine 2006" (for example) and then "Source Engine 2009" again. Now, under Current Game you should be able to see and select "Half-Life 2: Deathmatch". Select it and click on "Hammer Editor". Done. --SwiftReal (talk) 18:43, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

I've got exacly the same problem.Please help me anyone!!!! --Gyro 21:17, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

You need to run the game at least once and rebuild game configs. --Omnicoder 22:58, 3 November 2010 (UTC)

Can anyone donate a editor/wireframe file,pls?--Gyro 09:31, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

Won't help, if it can't find the wireframe it can't find any of the map textures either. --Omnicoder 18:55, 4 November 2010 (UTC)

I actually have uninstalled the SDK completely, and tried resetting the configurations, but nothing works... I actually gave up on this a while ago, and now make Portal 2 maps

game_text no longer works

Attempting to create a new line in a game_text entity will fail due to hammer editor "fixing" backslashes(from \n to /n). Apparently the only way to fix this is to edit the file in notepad. Very frustrating.Unsigned comment added by Ibemad (talkcontribs). Please use four tildes (~~~~) to sign your username.

Open the Steam client, select LIBRARY from the top. Next to the search bar, select the TOOLS drop-down, scroll down until you see Source SDK. Right-click and select Install... or double-click to begin the download and installation process. —Mattshu 22:30, 17 September 2011 (PDT)
