Custom textures are fullbright

Postby [GMG] BioHazard on Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:49 pm

Hey everyone! I'm afraid I have come across a little bit of a problem with my custom textures for my mod. You see, whenever I try to add a custom texture it shows up as fullbright in game. I (believe that I) have done everything correctly in terms of putting the custom texture into my mod and my map. I have attached some screenshots from the file directories and the vmf for the texture itself, as well as a few in game screens (the mod is called Evolution if you really wanted to know).

Here is the compile log.

The thing I'm worried about is this:
Code: Select all
material "evo/tiled/tiletest" not found.
Material not found!: EVO/TILED/TILETEST

...even though I'm sure that the texture is in exactly where it's supposed to be so that the compiler can find it.

Also, you may have noticed from the screenshots that I'm still using the old Source SDK. But that's because Source SDK 2013 doesn't really work very well with my mod... so switching so SDK 2013 isn't really an option :x

Well, well... I hope at least one of you can help me! :-D

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I have checked countless other forums on people having the same issue, but none of their solutions worked for me (and/or were from like 2008 or something).

What do you mean it doesn't work with SDK 2013?
Also, remove the $selfillum completely and see what happens.

I mean that running my mod through SDK 2013 makes my mod really buggy (like if it isn't already), like some custom features I have added (or at least the ones that work already). I could just be doing it wrong though (the running of the SDK that is).

Also, before I forget, removing $selfillum didn't have any visual effect whatsoever.

Ugh... I honestly have no idea then, ask Marnamai, but he'll tell you what everyone will: Source SDK 2013 or bust.

Edit: if that wasn't clear enough: move over to SDK 2013, since it's the latest and usually will fix everything. Feel free to bug me on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/id/ESToomere/

Good news, I fixed it! I didn't even have to switch to SDK 2013! Yay!
Just started using the newest hammer editor (the one launched from the game directory) and it worked!

So you resort to using a buggy Hammer instead of using the latest Hammer?

Well, I don't see any Hammer version being particularly buggy (except that my texture was fullbright, duh?) but other than this problem, my only issue with Hammer has been that I'm a little bit of a newb (and that's my personal issue), so I think I'll be fine.

Wait, you're saying your models work in the HL2/bin Hammer?
