Okay, if you're using STEAM, you should first unpack all the files from the .gcf file.

Download the program from:
Nem's tools homepage (

Here's tutorial from ( how to unpack the files.

Then, you should get Hammer to work. has a good
explaination ( too.

Then familliarize yourself with hammer.
Read alot of tutorials (
Countermap has some good ones. Use googlesearch or the forumsearch button for specific questions.

Then, finally, familliarize yourself with programs wich could come in handy later on:
- spriteviewer (no website found, tho googlesearch will provide dl-links)
- Jed's Half-Life ModelViewer (
- Wally (
