View Full Version : Slight Hammer Issue
06-28-2007, 04:36 PM
I haven't made any maps yet in source, but I've made plenty of 1.6 maps a long time ago. Anyways, the first thing I've noticed with the new Source Hammer that is really driving me crazy is on my 4 box display (camera, top, front, side), only the Camera box displays "Camera" in the corner the entire time. If i want front, top, or side to display, I have to move my mouse to where it should be, and it will appear, but when I move my mouse out of that box, it disappears again. Yeah, I could try to memorize each box, but that's something that's just really pissing me off....is there any fix to it?

You could try updating your video card drivers.

They're up to date :rolleyes:

whats your video card?
and let me get this straight :)
you have the four views but the orthographic views are all black? and the only one that works is the 3d view?
and when you put your mouse over any orthographic view it shows up?

6800gt, but that's irrelevant to the problem. Just the display name for each box. The actual views for each work, but the label in the corner is messed up. As I said before, it only displays when the mouse is moved over where the label is in the corner, and while the mouse remains in it's respective box afterwards. One the mouse is moved out of that particular label's display, then it disappears again. While the word "Camera" is constantly displayed no matter what.

i've seen threads like this.
My theory is that there are a lot of many chipsets in use & these bugs are low priority for the devs.
For example my 6600gt / NF3 setup won't let me "autosize 4 views", I have to have independent windows ( which I've adapted to ). It just shows nothingness. Also, the title bar of any window is always the last one you were in.
Your bug sounds like it itches tho

Mine doesn't show the names either, till you point the mouse to the box, I've adapted to it though. It's not a bug or graphics issue as far as I know.
Hammer adjusts settings depending on how much ram you have doesn't it?
haymaker, sounds odd that you can't autosize the 4 views, I've got a 6600gt / NF2 setup, all is good here :S

Yeah, I've started to get used to it now, although it was very annoying at first lol. Thanks for the reply guys.
