Problem with getting my own skin to work, need help!
So I've been spending a little over an hour now creating a skin for Insurgency (old game I know, but I find it fun) only to find out that it will not work, at all. It's a simple face retexture for one of the Insurgents, but I just can't seem to get it to load ingame. All that shows up are the pink and black checkers where the texture should be. I have named the file correctly. Can anyone tell me if there is any specific .vtf type I should save it as? Or what should go in the .vmt folder? I usually don't use .vmts, and it does not seem to help the problem whether I use one or not. Are there any specific parameters I should follow?
If anyone with skype or steam wants to really help me out, please private message me with your account name and after I add you we could figure this out. I could also send you the file for you to fix up yourself, but since it's only a joke skin of my friend I don't plan on publishing it and there would be no place for me to give you credit. I also have no means of compensating you for your time if you do, so if you're feeling fairly kind just let me know. Thanks!
