Team Fortress 2
Potential Killstreak Sheen Glitch?
I recently applied a professional killstreak knife kit to my carbonado knife and with no matter how many kills I get, the sheen is never visible however the killstreaker is clearly visible and seems to operate just fine.

I made absolutely sure I have no skins installed so that isn't a factor.

If it matters at all, the sheen is hotrod with singularity killstreaker, the knife is hale's own with engineers killed and snipers killed parts.

Hope someone can help me on this!

Edit:Was messing with mat_phong in the console and found this:
Error: Material "models/weapons/w_knife/w_knife" : proxy "AnimatedWeaponSheen" unable to initialize!
This error was for every weapon in the game. So my issue isn't with the weapon itself obviously. Still have no idea how to go about fixing it. Also, it displayed all these errors when i turned mat_phong on and off so I don't believe it's a problem with mat_phong

You need the singularly effect isn't showing or the sheen? You need 5 kills and 10 kill for the full effect in a single life the sheen may not show while disguised?

I am having the same problem but whit the default Knife with : sheen mean green
Figured out that you need to have your tf2 at or above DirectX 9 for the weapon sheens to work. if you have a lower end PC, odds are you wont be able to run DX 9 sadly.

What does Dx8 and Dx9 mean ?

I'm not even sure myself lol, just know that sheens work on DX 9. Look up what DirectX is if you want more info. If you think your PC can run DX 9 to see your sheens, type in: mat_dxlevel 90 into your console
