Hey! I've seen your animated texture guide. I've followed the guide instructions, though when testing out my texture in game, the model looks like it's invisible and it's not working. Only in the game, I think that issue's due to the steam pipe update.
I'm having this small issue and it's sad to see how close I was to finish it. Have you got an updated guide or something? or any tip at all?
Yours is a good tutorial, but you should also mention file size limits.
The tutorial is for textures, not sprays; there was no reason to mention size requirements for something the tutorial was not about. The size limit for sprays in all source games is 512kb. but I'll go ahead and add a note since you're not the first to use it for this and have problems.

Hi, I've made a VTF file which worked in the editor but, once imported into CSS and sprayed, doesn't appear at all, although the spray sound does play. Any suggestions to troubleshoot this? Thanks.
verify the vmf and vtf are both in the spray folder and that the vmf is pointing to the vtf in the spray folder, not the location it was in before you imported it.
Thanks for the reply.
Yes, everything was in place, and I've found out what the issue was: FILE SIZE. Yours is a good tutorial, but you should also mention file size limits (my initial vtf was over 2MB), so I've made a smaller version at around 300kb, and it finally works when sprayed.
