Q.

When I open an object in Crafty, I get the following error message:
"Error: wglUseFontBitmaps() failed."

A.

Try using a different font driver:

  1. Shutdown Crafty.
  2. Open your ov.ini file.
  3. Find the argument Engine.FontDriver and set it equal to Sprite (texture based fonts) or Null (no fonts). WGL (bitblit fonts) are the default.
  4. Save your changes.
  5. Start Crafty.

Q.

How do I set Crafty up?

A.

To set Crafty up:

  1. Start Crafty.
  2. Select Setup then Options.
  3. Under the File System tab, select your Steam Directory then the User Name whose custom content you wish to use.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click Setup then Profiles and select the modification whose content you wish to open.
Q.

When I load a level, it is missing textures or models or other resources.

A.

Crafty needs to know where to look for any resources referenced by a particular level. To do this, Crafty makes use of Profiles which tell Crafty which packages to look in and which search paths to use. Prior to loading any level, you must first make sure that the game or game modification you are loading content for is selected in the Profiles list in the Setup menu.

Q.

I don't see my game or game modification in the Profiles list.

A.

One drawback to the Profile approach is there is no way I can include a profile for every modification, I can only do so for modifications I own. If you want to add support for a custom modification, you must edit the Specifications\GameInfoCustom.csf file in any text editor to add support. It is quite simple to do, the aforementioned file contains detailed instructions.

Q.

How can I extend the Material Browser to view .tga files for Source games?

A.

If you want to view both .vmt and .tga files for Source games, edit ...\Crafty\Specifications\GameInfo.csf changing the Filter for the source MaterialBrowser from *.vmt to *.tga;*.vmt (should be line 65)

Hey Nem, I've got a question.
Look, I've ported a map, saved it as .map and opened in Crafty, but the textures are not showing up! I've selected Half-life 2 profile, made textures VMTs and VTFs, but crafty says they're not found! Help, please.

I know it says only Half-Live stuff, but does it also work with Half-Live-BASED Games like Portal? The ingame editor of the second game is really too simple. bored

When I select a freak fortress model to convert to .obj (luigi) it gives me a solid colored model and no textures. In the console it says:

Material lui_body not found.
Material lui_metal not found.
Material eyeball_r not found.
Material eyeball_l not found.


In the profiles, I've selected TF2 and my username in the directory.

The materials are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\[exerpt]\team fortress 2\tf\materials\freak_fortress\luigi2, and the model is located in C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\[exerpt]\team fortress 2\tf\models\freak_fortress\luigi2.

How can I fix this? (And also, I poked around in the settings, it says something about VMT extensions, what would I put in that box?) HLMV loads the model with textures perfectly fine.

When I try to launch Crafty, it says
This application may depend on other compressed files in this folder.
For the application to run properly, it is recommended that you first extract all files.

What do?

Can you please add support for SFM? Because every time I attempt to open SFM models, the tool crashes
