No files to select when browsing for textures
Posted 25 March 2011 - 01:22 AM
I've turned my PNGs into DDS files and I also created diffuse and normal textures. But when I open the template material editor and click "browse" for any of those files there simply no files or folder. Even if I navigate to My Documents there is nothing. No folders, no files.
Am I missing something obvious? Or is this a bug?

Yes. The file browser doesn't even see the texture it's actually using. There are no files at all, even in folder where there should be lots of files.

That got me thinking, though, so I typed the file name in and it works. The file browser just seems to be broken. I guess I can work around that, but is this a known issue or only happening for me?

Thus if when importing things using the sketchup importer you leave everything default no CRF files are even created, but if you tick the option for 'generate CRF files' then they are and possibly then the browser will work, though can be still tricky finding where they are within the Modshops browser structure.
As KV says, the best way to is to type in the correct path yourself and as much as possible to follow MS's file path method if you are creating props manually with for example Milkshape.
So for example if you import a prop using sketchup the textures for it would be in:
so simply make sure you DDS version of the texture is placed there too and then in the modshop all you need do is change the texture name and make sure it ends is .dds instead of .png
Also for costume retextures I have found you dont even need the full install path name, often you only need 'costumes/costumefoldername/textures/texturename.dds' and MS will know from this wher it is.
