Unable to import custom textures
« on: September 27, 2012, 09:36:56 PM »
I've been having this issue now for a little over a month, it seems that one day I was no longer able to import any custom textures into hammer. My theory is that either my hammer is completely messed up somehow or my import method is wrong and I've somehow forgot how to import.
I'm currently just putting the .VTFs and .VMFs in the materials (Steam>steamapps>name>counter-strike source>cstrike>materials) folder (organized into subfolders). I'm getting nothing but pink/black checker in hammer and it's really been frustrating me.

Any suggestions would be great.

Did you make sure the paths are correct on the .VMTs?  Open them up with notepad and make sure the material path is (foldername**/texturename**)

Where exactly are you referring to?

Looks the same on VTFedit

the "$basetexture" line.  Sorry, it's been a coon's age since I've made/added custom textures, I forgot what it said.

Make sure that it's in the "cstrike\materials\cyberspace\" folder

Code: [Select]
"UnlitGeneric"

{
// Original shader: BaseTimesLightmapSelfIllum

"$baseTexture" "dystopia/cyberspace/cube_blue"
"$surfaceprop" "metal"

}

Changed only the one texture to that (adding the dystopia) because that's what was listed as the directory from hammer, restarted hammer and suddenly all 16 or so folders of textures from that pack now work.
