    So, I had trouble packing a few textures, only to find copies existing inside custom and the materials in tf. Should I remove the tf one and validate game cache?

    I don't know if having copies will cause any issues but you only need one instance. People will tell you to put them in custom but it really doesn't matter, depends on what you prefer.

    Vertifying cache here probably won't do anything but I guess it won't hurt.

    @Freyja Okay, so copies did cause an issue. I believe the exactly same named files were causing problems since they were different versions, possibly from a older version of when I downloaded them. I ended up deleting the materials file in the tf folder entirely and verifying game cache.

    In Hammer, the old textures turned plain white aka missing texture, just replaced them with the "working" versions. Just tried paking these ones and worked just fine.
