It is a PDF, you can support PDF's?

I'll email you a copy right now to save you some grief.

Just tried it on a different computer, works fine.

The white screen is normal, it's just loading the pdf.

I've emailed it anyways.

I'd be happy to clarify anything that needs it.

The document is far from Gospel, but I'd like to make it the best it can be.

How do I open the file? or better yet, what do I open it with?

03-21-2004, 05:17 PM
It is an adobe acrobat file compressed with WinRAR.

If you'd rather not install WinRAR, I could email the pdf to you.

sorry if this is off topic but what file do i need to edit in order to change the color of the blade of the various swords in the game

note: the blade not hilt already changed those

03-31-2004, 02:53 AM
do you mean textures?

03-31-2004, 02:54 AM

03-31-2004, 02:59 AM
For all the swords, the blade and hilt are part of the same texture.

03-31-2004, 06:12 AM
Hey great tutorial, I finally was able to create a custom saber but I do have one question. How do you make the blade smaller? I know it was posted before but I can't find it.

04-03-2004, 11:08 AM
I hate to keep asking but could anyone tell me how to make the saber blades the normal size and not some big square looking thing.

I get a 404 error when I try to go to the site.

Unless your w_lsabre<<>>0*.tga is named after one of the originals you'll need to make a new txt file and put in:

blending additive
decal 1

then rename the file to .txi, that should make it glow like a normal lightsaber blade.

Assuming, of course, that's what you mean.
