You know how same textures have that blue stuff in them that's supposed to be invisble? (The textures with } in front of the name)

In my game when ever I have a texture like that, it isn't invisible, it's black....

Well here can be two things why it is black....

1.Your brush render mode sould be SOLID and amount 255
2.Maybe your texture palette is bad, couse the last color of the palette (255 index) must be blue....
I want to make a HL mod! Doing everythig with HL except coding C++ | its not interesting to work alone

Troi is correct. You need rendermode=solid and fxamount=255.

This only works on entities too.

Well, when I do this.......and play the game......the brush isn't solid. You're able to walk right through it.

Well, could this be solved by doing a func_wall and setting it to Render Mode > Solid and FX Amount 255?


Also, what func_illusinary would i do if I want it to be able to shoot through it and the blue stuff still invisible?

func_illusionary is supposed to be non-solid.

If you make it a func_wall, it will block everything, including bullets.

OR: you can add a clip brush in the same position as your func_illusionary and it will block players ONLY.

um, do you know how the decals.wad file has all the textures with the white around them?


I want to make an area look all scorched, but I want to get rid of the white stuff around the texture.


?

I rarely use decals but I thought they just worked on their own?

If it doesn't, does a decal have RenderMode?

well, it's the same. The white stuff is still there, even though I did func_illusanary or whatever with RenderMode = Solid FX Amount = 255. (in the game)



I'm making a HL1 map for single player and this part here has dead bodies strewn about. But how would I render the blood red and get rid of the white?

Make the background blue, and really blue I mean.

In wally in the colors palette pick the blue that has Red = 0, Green = 0, and Blue = 255. Then in the func_illusionary the Rendermode = Solid, and the FX = 255

would the actual sprite render red? Or would I have to color that in myself?

Umm..It should render red if you're making a red texture? But you need the blue color to make it transparent I believe.
