    So it's like this:

    I'm playing around with those two rope entities. move_rope gives you a rope material option, the default being rope (cable/rope). That works fine, but when I try cable/chain, it doesn't.

    Is cable/rope the only rope texture you can use?

    I believe the chain is currently broken. I believe it also requires the extension .vtf

    I believe you can use the material browser and select any texture you like. (use the cable/ filter for cable specific textures) if no chain texture exists, it wouldnt be too hard to make one

    Chain exist but does not work. I have not found a way to make a rope material with alpha/transparency in my own attempt, and I believe that is what's messing up the chain texture.

    There are a few different cable textures you can use. Open the material gcf and check in the cable/ folder. There's also 2 textures in the swamp pack.
