Okay. I got over the drama now and ready to learn.

My hammer doesn't work. I didn't use the SDK but the bin version and it still doesn't work because it say's that the gameinfo file is missing. What to do?

Another note. I have started on making Gmod models and want some tips about bones. The bones have my own names and the mesh and texturing are simple cause I want to use the models for myself. I made a test character which needs bones. Do I need to know something? (And no I'm unable to decompile an already existing model because I don't know why it don't work)

bump

Have you launched hammer.bat first, instead of the .exe?

Should I have done that? I don't see any changes.

It helps only on the first run, since it launches Hammer in its proper environment.
If it's for a mod, you should probably the gameinfo.txt file.

I assume re-installing hammer would replace any missing files? thats what I'd try

Just realised I forgot to add a verb to my last sentence.
Correction:
"You should either make or edit the gameinfo.txt file."

Okay let's go over to Gmod ragdolling. How do I make one? I did do a test model.

Can I use custom bone names to make it easier to work with or must they be specific? I couldn't decompile a Barney model so that doesn't work.

(Posting this on my Mac. And I've figured out what my old Gmail's password was so now I'm less isolated from it)

I think that the problem isn't the gameinfo.txt file being wrong, but that it's Hammer that isn't functioning well.

EDIT: I am working on some Gmod models. Expect screenshots.

I where unable to work on some Gmod models because I don't know how to do ragdolls the correct way.

Do I really deserve this much ignorance?

Is a Garry's Mod ragdoll any different to a regular Source engine ragdoll?
Maybe try asking on the Facepunch forums anyway - probably a few more Source engine modelers there.

I mean I never did ragdolls before. But Now I am more confident and capable so I'll try better now.
