I'm not sure how to put it back in the file, but I must say that I'm VERY impressed, and I was waiting for someone to come out with a skin like this. I could use someone like you in my new mod, but if you dont want to thats fine. Once again, Im happy to see people skinning for this game, and i was waiting to play as the Fleet Trooper, but I can't help you out with the lvl files, but I wish i knew how to do that.

Well I could go into a lengthy FAQ that will most likely bore and confuse you or you could just wait a few hours for the bcompiler to come out at gametoast.com today or tommorow.

Nice work Clone03..

Hoping to see more of these done the way they should have been in the begginning :) If you dont mind I will try out your reskin in game and load it up and post the images here....

Once Bcompiler is out you will convert your dds to swbf format and simply hex edit it back into wherever your covering over the old skin...after modding your skin the rest is about a 5 minutes copy/paste fest then your gtg. the faq on the site is helpful and we most likely will include a nice readme faq with the Bcompiler package.

If you get/make more skins feel free to post them here , im working on a fett skin to replace darth on all darth hero maps .... just to see the possibliltes...but I love coming here to see what folks have skinned.

Ok np, i will compile it and paste images here....very clean work, hehe my skins so far have been test skins ..im eager to spend some time making real ones.... should be up in about 15 minutes.

Clone003
10-27-2004, 04:54 PM
well yeah that was my test skin...btw 1 question how come the bump maps don't work? i mean you can't extract them properly..get some weirdish picture with text...

kingguru
10-27-2004, 04:58 PM
while i wait for all.lvl to load....heheh

Is there any way you can make a snapshot of the bump results? I've not had that happen , so far we make about a build an hour when were in there but we actuayll added more tex_ so Bviewer will see everything now... Id likle to see what your getting on your end. Make sure its 1.45 bviewer and what app you use to open your .dds with>?

I opened SIDE/all.lvl and extracted a perfect bump of the inf_pistol_bump. These appear to represent animated images , they extract fine but until just now I hadn't messed with bumps in bviewer. Post a pic of what your getting if you like and we can see whats up.

General Maxmillian Veers, how cute, I wonder why he's a medic now? (P.S. he's the dude in the AT-AT on Hoth)

Here's a request for you Clone003, but I doubt you will be able to do it right now. A Boba Fett Skin. Perhaps you could attempt touching up the Tie-fighter pilot skin, it seems to look a little off compared to the movies.

Its your app bud...here is a photoshop pic of opening the same file in dxtool and photoshop. Try using dxtool to view it....its perfect everytime...

I will have the pics up in a little while from your skin, i had to find what map they play on and eat some quick lasagne while i watch them kill each other...

My Bad ,Clone.

Nimlot just reminded me that im using tommorrows release of 1.50 Bviewer which includes bump maps support, (way to many builds on my pc , hehe) dont throw that app away just yet, hehe.

Also were both messing with your texture/skin right now to see results on theed and endor using it... will post results for you (everyone) here.

Ok here goes Nimlot got it working after pasting the dds over all 4 areas where medic is used in all.lvl.

Nice work....it takes a little time to get all this pasted. hehe. Would love to see what else you can do with say....the M. Falcon or Darth Vador!
