This is aGtkRadiant developer list, not really for technical support.

If you're just getting started, try posting your question in the level

Add your texture dir to shaderlist.txt and use the shaderlist.txt only
filter. All the extra directories you're seeing are probably from various
map pk3s in your baseq3 directory.

> - if I de-select "shaderlist.txt only" then (1) are listed (initial letter
