      You probably posted this in the wrong section.

      But IIRC, Steampipe made it so you have to put the new custom stuff in custom/my_custom_stuff/

      if you packed your skin into a .vpk, put it in custom folder
      If you didn't packed your skin into a .vpk, put the files in custom/my_custom_stuff

      I have no clue what to suggest or if you've already read this but I found a small tutorial that seems to work for others. Also, correct me if I'm wrong but @JorisCeoen is pretty dandy with models, he may be able to help.

      Also hi Moonlight, long time no see. :D

        Perhaps @Motanum or @JorisCeoen can help you out; they've been working on a mod so i'm sure they'll know.

        But my question is, would it be similar to L4D2? All the custom files go into
        C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons

          i guess that worked at 2011 .. but there was no steampipe at this time


          @Tony the Tiger!! :grin:

          well its a single texture i wanna use for the portal gun, nothing else
          if someone can convert it for me and tell me where i have to put it, that would be fine
