    The the water top is black of brownish with black spots on it. It looks normal underneath but is freaky up top. I already put cubemaps on the water yet nada

    95% of the time, problems with water have to do with a leak in the map. So id check on that first and foremost.

    Really I just posted though to ask you what the heck is happening in your sig. Is he tearing the ketchup bottle in half? Is he crying because the bottle somehow was torn in half? Is it a talking ketchup bottle? Why does he have those orange circles on his face?

    The world may never know.

    You either have a leak as haphazard said
    OR
    You have not compiled with VVIS turned on.
    Water does not work without VVIS compiled.

    Vvis is one of the things that run when you compile. It only runs when you have no leaks that prevent it from running.
