How to make a team-colored skin?

A Question for Team Fortress 2

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.

please the tutorials are outdated

Normally I'd just take someone else's team-colored mod and attribute them for the script itself, however I can't do that if one doesn't already exist.
I tried looking up how to make one, but the two I found were on this site and 7 years old with broken formatting (lack of newlines because of, I'm guessing, a text formatting revamp that happened), and commentators asking why it doesn't work.
I tried doing it myself (by following both guides and using the most relevant information from both), but all that resulted from it was an error spammed in console was this (it was a conch skin):
Material models/workshop_partner/weapons/c_models/c_shogun_warbanner/c_shogun_warbanner does not support vertex format used by the mesh (maybe missing fields or mismatched vertex compression?), mesh will not be rendered. Grab a programmer!
While it would be appreciated if someone did it for me, it would be much more beneficial to everyone if an updated guide was provided.
That said, is there one out there?

    Wait, what are you trying to do? You want team colour for the existing model, or custom model?
