Modded Portal-Gun


#1

So I have been seeing people with modded portalguns, but im a noob modder so I dont really know to do this. I tried but, my console just got flooded with “Material (portalgun stuff) does not support vertex format used by the mesh (maybe missing fields or mismatched vertex compression?), mesh will not be rendered, Grab a programmer!” what am i supposed to do?

Grab portal\materials\models\weapons\v_models\v_portalgun\v_portalgun.vtf, VTFEdit it into a .tga, edit that in an editor of your choice, VTFEdit that back into .vtf (don’t change any settings) and put it back there, restart the game.

I love how it says “Grab a programmer!” 8)
Presumably that was some message to staff at Valve doing art work in case they didn’t understand the material format ;D
