    Ever since the release of the Classless Update, Team Fortress 2 ragdolls spawned in Garry's Mod do not have thier appropriate skins - all the character ragdolls and their hats, as well as a few other player-related items, are instead given a completely black reflective surface. The in-game console gives errors saying things like "demoman_blue: proxy "YellowLevel" not found!" This never occurred prior to the recent TF2 update, so I think that's what broke it. Anyone have any ideas if it's fixable on my end, or will I just have to wait until one of the two games is updated to make it work again? :(

    Some of the materials for player models were changed in this update, I believe. Gmod will need to be updated to work with the new ones.

    The problem is probably due to the fact that the new hats have caused new base player models to be created in order for hatless characters and to give new hats to hat-wearing characters without having them be carelessly stuck over old hats.

    I see ... good to know it's not something nasty on my end/something that won't be fixed. Thanks for the quick responses! :)

    Awesome!! :wow: Thanks a bunch for posting those!

    Here's a useful trick for anyone else wanting to play with the hats in GMod who doesn't already know this:
    Aim your crosshair at a TF2 ragdoll, then open the console with ~ and put in "ent_fire !picker setbodygroup #" replacing "#" with a single-digit number (0 is default model, 1, 2, and 3 do various things). This will remove integrated hats for Sniper, Engineer, and Scout (haven't tried Scout yet myself, but if he now has new hats that require it then it should work) and also add the Spy's paper mask (very useful!). This is why the Spy has a bajillion skins in the spawn menu - they all alter that mask of his.
    Play around with the numbers and you can find various different results, such as Sniper with arrows on his back. This works with props too - ever wanted the Medigun without that stiff black hose on the back or an arrow-less Huntsman? ;)

    I don't know if this is old news to everyone here in the mapping community, but I know I had to look hard to find it and was really glad when I did, so hopefully someone here finds it helpful. :)

    Thanks again for the help, all! :)

    Wow. I mean, I know Valve is known to break their own game with updates, (Natascha, Rocketjumping) but this has got to be the first update that broke SOMEONE ELSE'S game.

    I think someone needs another corporate achievement.
