Valve Hammer Editor

Half-life/mods map construction tool.

The most notable change in this version is the change in name to Valve Hammer Editor. The following changes have also been made:

  • Splitter view layout is now preserved from session to session.
  • Dialog bars now pop to the top when the mouse cursor floats over them.
  • No longer renders the 3D views when the editor is not the active application. (This will fix most people's problems with running Hammer and Half-Life at the same time causing the editor to freeze)
  • Added Copy to Clipboard button to the process window.
  • Sped up time to bring up the Face Properties dialog when many brushes are selected.
  • Sped up 2D view scrolling.
  • Added timed selection of objects by depth in the 3D view when the left mouse button is held down.


  • Fixed a random spinlock when rendering sprites.
  • Fixed texture rendering problems with sprites, etc.
  • Fixed freeze when starting map with sprites visible.
  • Fixed a crash in the path tool.
  • Fixed problem with texture shifts being reset when importing old MAP files.
  • Fixed black brushes caused by clipping.
  • Fixed a lockup when scaling certain brushes.
  • Fixed infinite lines in 3D view in vertex mode.
  • Fixed clipping causing duplicate solids.
  • Fixed decal repositioning.
  • Fixed camera angle view bug.
  • Fixed problem with running compile tools from paths with spaces.
