    I'm trying to use Pakrat so that my maps have the correct models and not the huge red ERROR blocks, hilarious though they may be. I've followed the tutorials I could find (well, the ones that had at least a semblance of grammar so I could understand them) but I still don't think I'm using it right.

    Can anyone please post the steps they use which work?

    What works for me is to open up the file, do the scan/auto-add feature, and then (for totally unknown reasons) rename everything it wants to add from "/aterials/..." to "/materials/..." because it decides to drop the M.

    I open the .bsp of my map in pakrat, and it gives me a big list of all the textures ive used (they seem to be just the non-custom textures, it says nothing about any custom models). I click Auto and says "couldnt find anything to add." It doesnt seem to add the custom stuff.
