What works

Starting Hammer from the Source SDK launcher, making maps, creating and loading prefabs.

What does not

Sometimes, the game doesn't launch after compiling.  It might work the first few times I compile the map, but when it stops working once, it won't work again until I restart Hammer.

vrad.exe never runs when compiling.  I don't know if it's because my map has no lights yet or if it's a problem.


What was not tested

Advanced features, making maps for games other than Portal.

Additional Comments

I can't figure out how to make texture quality higher. It's probably just me being ignorant of some obvious slider, though.
