I’ve tried google, I’ve tried the Valve Dev Community, but I can’t really find the information I need.
I’m trying to port over a model, out of TF2, and into HL2Ep2. I do own both games, just so you know.
The model I’m trying to port is latern001.mdl, which has the materials lantern_glass001.vmt/.vtf and latern001.vmt/.vtf.
I’ve extraced all the model data and materials to ep2/models/tf2_ported, where I have edited the .vmt’s to point to the correct folder. I just don’t know how to make the model understand where the materials are found.
The model shows in the Model Browser list, but when I click it, it shows no 3D preview, nor can I use it in game. Can someone help?
