Exclamation Soulved Error "Failed to load $include VMT file ...."
Hey I was struggling with the error :

Quote:Failed to load $include VMT file (materials/METAL/METALCHROME001.vmt)
Failed to load $include VMT file (materials/METAL/METALCHROME001.vmt)
Failed to load $include VMT file (materials/METAL/METALCHROME001.vmt)
......

This is due to Linux bing case sensitive, meaning that the file "somename.vmt" that we get from the "./steam -command update ..." command is not the same as the file "SOMENAME.vmt" which is what srcds server is looking for.

Now maybe it would be enough to rename the folders in the materials folders to uppercase, this would be manageable. However if all the sub-folders and files would have to be renamed as well this would be a big ass pain to do by hand so I offer my solution a script I wrote.

I chose to have the script make symbolic links to the original files and folders so that it would not use too much space copying the files, and so updating the server would not download new files with the lowercase names in case it would do that, and if the original files were now to updated the new uppercase "files" also will be updated.

I'm sure its poorly coded and could be better in a lot of ways, but it works and thats enough. So here is how to use it:

*Download (or copy/paste into a file) from one of the following sources.
-http://frag.mine.nu/files/SrcDS-linker.sh
Not sure if I will keep this up so upload and redistribute the file as much as you want
and paste links here incase the pastebin version goes down.
-Pastebin: SrcDS-linker.sh
-Attached file.
.zip  SrcDS-linker.zip (Size: 1.54 KB / Downloads: 55)
-I will also post the script at the bottom of this post.

*Put the script in your "<serverdir>\hl2\materials", move to that folder
Code:
cd <serverdir>\hl2\materials
and run it using
Code:
sh SrcDS-linker.sh
or possably
Code:
./SrcDS-linker.sh
and follow the instructions given by the script.

*Put the script in your "<serverdir>\orangebox\cstrike\materials", move to that folder
Code:
cd <serverdir>\orangebox\cstrike\materials
and run it using
Code:
sh SrcDS-linker.sh
or possably
Code:
./SrcDS-linker.sh
and follow the instructions given by the script.

That should do it, no more annoying errors on the missing materials.
