    So, i'm having problems importing the models , textures , and other stuff for the frontline pack and from everything iv watched and seen i need to but them in their respectable game folders. When i do the game still shows error when i load up the test map. Anything i should change or do differently?

    I'm still not sure if you did it right.

    When you instal the pack correctly, then in tf/materials will be a bunch of new folders (some may existed before to due to other content): bricks, concrete, detail, glass, medieval, metal, models, nature, overlays, props, signs, skybox, tile and wood. Inside tf/materials/models is also a props_frontline folder.
    Now in addition to that, you will also have another props_frontline folder in tf/models (that's a different one than the one in tf/materials/models

    Is that the case for you? Also you still didn't answer if the props appear in hammer.

    Neato, now I can shamelessly advertise something I did to get rid of all your hardrive space problems.

    It would still make your map file smaller, server owners and downloading players aren't always fan of bigger files.
