    Hello everyone

    Ive managed to get proper working so far as to have it convert brushwork in to models, and have those models be able to load hammer (YAY!).

    However, I cannot seem to find a way to be be able to change the scaling of these textures within hammer, it seems to automatically designate them to some default size and position.

    Im sure there is a way to have the brush save its textures Scale, and Position when the model is being created.

    If anyone has experience with this problem or with Proper in general I would be very grateful for some help, I Would even be willing to talk about the issue through discord if anyone interested, as I have not had much luck via tutorials or guides thus far.

    Anyways thanks in advance guys for any help you can give. If I can clarify anything please let me know ill be watching the forum.

    Here's the compile for the proper compile, I have removed some of the lines that repeat about 70 times for the sake of brevity.

    If you want texture scale, orientation, etc, to be preserved in the model, Propper needs to be able to find the materials. The most effective fix for this that I have found is using slarti's community hammer w/ the proper setup however there might be another way.

    Did you follow the given setup instructions correctly? If you did, it should all work fine

    yeah, it launches and thats all well and good, theres just no response at all when trying to compile, the run window closes, but theres no process window, vvis does run, and compiling never even starts.
