    Ok, so the problem is that custom textures won't show up on my map to everyone else.

    You can connect to the server with the map at: 68.232.169.22:27015
    The server runs 24/7.

    Custom Textures on my map become purple checkers, and I can't find a way replace it with my custom textures which I made.
    I did use Pakrat to compile the custom textures with the map, and it doesn't work.
    I also checked if there was any broken paths, but it was fine.

    This used to work before, but now it doesn't work.
    Is this a problem to the mapmaker (me) or the server-hoster.

    Please help me, I get spam messages everyday from the server-hoster saying to fix the map :C

    If you used custom models and only ran pakrat on Auto, the model textures didn't get pakked. You have to either pak them manually or use PackBSP.

    I'm sure it got packed. I manually pack the files, and I don't use auto. I also used other packing software; such as PackBSP. It does not work.

    Well, you're either lying to us or you're just not packing the correct materials. There is really no other option.

    I tried connecting to the server to check the map, but it's a trade map the filesize of Meridian. Do you have an off-server download?

    But I don't know if it's my fault or the server owners fault :|,
    The problem is that other people can't download the custom textures I made.

    Players shouldn't have to download custom textures. That's the purpose of packing them into your map.

    Is PackBSP or whatever you're using scanning the correct directory? Check you haven't set it to search for content in another folder by mistake.

    I am packing my custom textures into my map, it's just somehow not packing correctly :|


    I am scanning the correct directory, as shown in the path below (Latest version of my map is v2.0d)

    I dunno if this is your issue, but your map name shouldn't have a period in it, ever. Lowercase letters, numbers and underscores only. I'll bet you something is messing up because of that, whether you know it or not. Could be this!

    Your textures have spaces and ampersands in the filenames, I can assure you this will fuck something up.

    Here is my packed version. If it doesn't work, change the texture names to something sensible and try again.

    I should have been more clear, but Source doesn't like non-alphanumerics and it doesn't like spaces, period. That was the point of my post about your map name, and I'm willing to bet Seba is right about the textures too.
