    in particular, when it works for me, but when it's on a server (with the custom content included), no one else can see/hear/smell/whatever the custom content.


    it must be something very simple, because i can't find anything anywhere about this.
    the files are definetly there, but it's as if they didn't exist as far as anyone else is concerned

    no. first time i've ever heard of pakrat.
    i was including it in the file structure (e.g. materials/signs/customsign001.vtf )
    i'll have to search for this pakrat thing.
