take the picture, if you made a shader for it make sure its in the scripts folder in BaseEF. With the jpg or whatever, make a folder in baseEF called textures, then in that folder make another folder with the name of your map, then put the jpg or tga into that folder. Then go to the scripts folder, look for the txt file named shaderlist, open it and type the name of the new folder in the textures folder in there, and save it. Next time you load GTK it will load the textures in that folder.

However, if the picture is currently a jpg, then make it into a tga, for some reason radient has problems loading jpg's if they aren't in a pk3.

you don't need to, but radient doesn't just see that folder there and the textures in it, unless 1 you specify to open it, or the easiest method is to put it on the shaderlist and it will look in that folder then.

ok what format is the picture in.

Also I would suggest making the folder the name of your map instead of that one.

just by changing the tag or did you save it as tga. E-mail the texture to me and I'll take a look, and see if I can get it to load in my GTK.

hmmm, small problem undertaker, I tried downloading the file and it comes back that it is a invalid format and paint can't read, you sure its not corrupted. Also can you save it as a jpg in paint, if so do that, and then send me the jpg.
