    I have an issue where the overlays are coming out black or Grey and the actual colors and such are missing.


    This is what is looks like in game:

    As you can see there were overlays put on those boards but they didn't appear in the game. Any idea whats wrong?

    This is what it looks like in Hammer:

    Could you post a screenshot of the keyvalues of the overlay? that would be more helpful. Off the top of my head I have no idea why your overlays aren't working.

    Try putting an env_light entity into the map. That's what fixed my overlays.

    I'm positive it's what hacky said. From my experiences if no light hits an overlay (even if there are lights in the map and it's just dark there) then it will be rendered improperly, and your map is clearly running fullbright, which means you didn't put any lights in.
