Custom Trails For Trouble In Terrorist Town HELP!

I’m having trouble fixing my custom trail that ive added to my TTT server in the Pointshop addon. I’ve got the code and file location perfect! only issue I’m having is the visual look when you try to walk around, after you apply the trail. It’s almost as if the vtf flags or vmt code isnt working correctly. BTW, its not the pink & black checker colour. It’s more like colour rendering or the picture cant keep up with the movement of the player. Im using Steamcmd in case people are wondering if its outdated or need to mention anything about file locations.

Any VTFedit professionals help me fix this issue? or think maybe there’s something missing from the vmt code?

VMT code:

“$basetexture” “VGUI/ttt/trail_spooky”
“$additive” 0
“$vertexalpha” 1
“$vertexcolor” 1

Link me to another post or solution if there is one. I couldnt seem to find any help with TTT. Only one was GMOD sandbox (which uses different resource coding for applying a trail).
