Lol the title.
Anyway, the Professor's Pineapple (Multi-Class Misc) seems to be picky about which map it wants to behave on, material-wise. I applied Sync's VMT fix (that man is a genius...), and for the most part, it works perfectly and I don't think his fix is the cause of this problem.
In stage.bsp, the model imports just fine, with the right color and everything and I can paint it with the hat proxy.http://i.imgur.com/LHJ2dpc.png
On cp_steel.bsp, it imports black, and I'm unable to paint it at all :(
The map IS a big deal because it's for a poster I'm working on and the client asked for cp_steel specifically, so it's a must-do here.
After rotating around the model, I noticed that from the back, it's almost transparent, so I'm going to mess with the AO of the model and see if that fixes it, but I don't think it will or should, because the model was working fine yesterday without messing with it.
