A server I typically play on uses a model, and the texture for the model is fine, with the exception of one little piece of equipment on the model, which is a pink and black missing texture.
I know it seems small, but I was wondering if there was a way to replace the texture with something that blends in better, like pure black.
I went into GCFScape and went to hl2/root/materials/debug, and found debugempty.vtf, the file for the texture. I then exported it, edited it, then created a new set of folders in Half Life 2/hl2/materials/debug/debugempty.vtf, with the last file being the one I edited.
Next, I set the launch options for Garry’s Mod to, “-override_vpk.”
Clearly I did something wrong, because the texture is still pink and black. Is there anyway to do what I’m trying to do?
TL;DR: How do you replace the pink and black missing texture with something else?
