First off, posted questions to my profile are usually missed. I know who i am and don't read things there much. This is a better place to post questions. Besides, I'm not the only one who might be able to answer your question.

Now, for your problem, your comment is pretty vague. What model, what texture?? There are way too many texture files to go through to see which ones work and which ones don't. Please give an example so we can investigate what the problem might be.

Thanks

Yeah sorry i kinda got gasped a little bit since i saw my nick name on the topic but anyway my problem is when i was trying to make the spy trying to threatening the pyro i was trying to use the spy with my loadout which was he is wearing the bill's hat so i was trying to import the model which was of course the bill's hat and all i can see from that hat is nothing but black color and a logo which was of course this is not the original color (actually i haven't painted this hat) so i was trying to get the default color but instead i used 2 of the scripts which was used to color the hat but when i was trying to use the RGB (Red Green Blue) color it's still black idk how to fix this and i need your help about this one thank you.
EDIT:yeah some stuff i haven't told about it too and im about to say it even when i was trying to put the VTF and the VMT files into sfm and yet it didn't work ether sorry im pretty sure you haven't remember my comment cus of my bad language.

It's nothing you did, Bill's Hat uses a painting method that doesn't work in SFM. Get these textures I made: http://www.freewebs.com/ssasde/BillsHatFixed.zip

Replace the ones you have with these, and the hat should now behave correctly, and be paintable.

Yup, Bill's Hat (the Special Forces Beret) is black in SFM. You have to edit the VTF file and fix the paintable area. Here's the reason why it is black. The area for the beret in the beret.vtf is black (which is suppose to be transparent).

The area need to be whitish with shading. See my guide on fixing the boogaloo items and look at the robo_archemedes fix. The fix for the beret is similar to that. The Bill's Hat Texture is found in the materials\models\player\items\demo folder as beret.vtf

In the guide there is a link to the skins for the repaired boogaloo items. These were fixed by Sync.

You got the Beret fix.zip file, extract that into USERMOD\materials\models\player\items\demo (if the folders don't exist, create them). The usermod material will have higher priority than the tf matewrials and won't be erased if there is an update or you have to refresh your cache.

ok thank you for these stuff Pte jack but one more question and thats all do i need to paint every hat and misc white?

Depends on what you mean by "EVERY" Only paintable items are set up to be painted. Check the TF2 Item Wiki to see if it can be painted or not. If it can, try to paint it. If it doesn't work or is black, then the material has to be fixed, and it isn't always the same fix either.

You open the VTF and repaint that to wat you want. Let say you want to put a striped vest on the sniper. The vest can not be painted, so you have to edit the original vtf and colour the areas that you want to change. You then replace the original with your changed version.

alright then thanks for the everything you said hopefully i will learn on how to make the texture's with your robotic boogaloo items fix video :)

Here's an example... I want to give the sniper a national affiliation. So I find the vtf file associated to the area I want to change, take that and convert it to something I can edit, make the change and save the changed vtf back into the proper folder.
