So, the AR2 crash issues is a bitch, plane and simple.
Someone suggested making a fake VMT in materials/effects and it seems to work. However I thought to myself, why not make it download this fake VMT to all clients then it would stop the crash right?
However, no matter what I try it won’t download a file named ar2_altfire2.vmt. Just not at all, it’s as if there is some internal blacklist for this file on the server or client.
So, 2 questions.
- Any chance this can be force downloaded by clients or am I being an idiot?
- The LUA Query: Can LUA be used to force a name change on a client side file.
To make that clearer. Can a server use LUA on the client to force him to rename a file.

I know how to add models to FastDL and they all work, i’ve tested it with the exact same fake material named “sexmeupsir.vmt” and it downloads fine.
My issue is 100% with the file being named ar2_altfire2.vmt
