what is the easiest way to remove the masks ingame graphic? I want the icons to still be there, but I want to be able to equip any mask and have no visible change in my character (I hate how they look)

I could do this, but my method is far slower than it probably could be, so what would be the easiest way to do this?

Hello all,

Another option is to use kotor tool to extract the following models:

i_null.mdl
i_null.mdx

and rename them to the same name as the model you want to have invisible.

So, if you wanted to get rid of the verpine headband model, just rename them to:

i_mask_011.mdl
i_mask_011.mdx

Then throw them into your override folder.

All the benefeits, none of the polygons!

Err...nice to see you search the forums but please look at the date of the last post before continuing a discussion. You just revived a long dead thread... :redskul:

I have no problems when people revive old threads to ask a relevant modding questions in relation with what has been discussed in the thread but not to simply continue a general discussion.

I know this has been discussed already (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=130058), but I still do not understand what to do.

Could anyone give me clear instructions on how to do this?

I appreciate the help.

Koshir0,

You would have been better served by posting this in that thread and bumping the old thread, than starting another one.

And Cchargin states in that thread how to make masks invisible in game by;

So what Cchargin is saying is in KT find and extract the i_null.mdl and i_null.mdx to wherever you want.

Then rename multiple copies of these files to the following i_mask_001.mdl and i_mask_001.mdx through i_mask_014.mdl and i_mask_014.mdx giving you a total of 28 .mdl and .mdx files.

Copy these files to your KOTOR override and you are done.

Sorry for not posting in the older thread RedHawke.

Ok, but where in KT do I find i_null.mdl and i_null.mdx and where do I extract it?

BIFS > items.bif > Aurora Model > i_null.mdl

BIFS > mdx > i_null.mdx


For safety extract them to a temp folder, then re-name the null files to the name of the mask you're replacing (spelling very important, must be exact).

Once you've renamed them, drop them in your override. Click OK to overwrite the existing .mdl & .mdx files of the mask(s) you want to be invisible and voila! :D

Be sure to backup the exisiting .mdl & .mdx files you're going to replace....just in case

Thanks for the help ChAiNz.2da and RedHawke. And one more question: what is the .mdl and .mdx file for Circlet of Saresh?

::EDIT::
DOH! Scratch that...those are the cheat codes :rolleyes: :headbump

I believe it's i_mask014.mdl & i_mask014.mdx

**tip - open the .uti files for the mask (since I posted the cheat codes, should be simple enough ;) ) and look at the model variation...that will give you the proper .mdx & .mdl files to extract/use....

Just an FYI Redhawke the old thread could not be bumped because the last person who bumped it got it closed for asking questions not relevant to modding.

I'll confirm that for you, i_mask_014.mdl was the model I used to test all of my failed helmet models. :D

Actually... yes it could Darkkender, a simple PM to any Holowan Moderator would have gotten that thread unlocked so he could post his relevant to that topic question there.

That is what Moderators are for, and I'm sure they would have no problems with a request like that. :D

I was not aware of that. Or more to the point I haven't thought of that in the past.

By the way I like the new Avatar. Is that from Babylon 5, one of the shadows? ;)

I'm sure the Moderators here would do that in an instant, being that keeps relavent topics to the same thread, and things more organized.

That is a big help in a modding forum! :D

Actually, if one of them reads this they might, if so inclined, merge these two threads. ;)
