very cool , cant wait to see it in game...let me know if you need help getting it hexed in.. I just post a mini faq on my fastest hexing way so far in the Bcompiler this should help :

FAST HEX RECIPE!

After i modded and saved my files then reformatted them with bcompiler ::

1. Open hex editor and copy EVERYTHING in the .dds for dxt1 lvl of what your modding (and notice how many bytes it says you have selected.)


2. Open in hex , the file your replacing you mod skin into and type "name of thing your modding" when it takes you to where the item/unit is look for the area under it saying BODY and then LVL_ (if you dont see those things keep hitting next with your mod items name still selected)

3. PASTE EVERYTHING from the copy you just made and put it OVER the LVL_ all the way down to the same amount of bytes that you noticed you selected when you copied. PASTE IT IN . (most skins are @ 43992 bytes for dxt1)

In most files it takes a little bit of time to paste over it all so let it do its thing in hex, when its done save and do the same thing for the rgb file (you just reformatted in bcompiler) which should be alot larger then the dxt1 file was.(usually skins are 175051 bytes)

Repeat those until both files are hexed in and go load it up!

Doing the same things above I modded an entire skin for Hoth Sniper in less than 5 minutes.

מתכון של כישוף מהיר!

אחרי שאני מודדאד וחסכתי את הקבצים שלי אז פירמטתי מחדש אותם עם בכומפילאר ::



The instrutions are for modding the SWBF game ...Read the the many forum posts about hex editing if that word is confusuing, this also explains using the tools Bviewer and Bcompiler to mod the skins for the game , read more in te forums about modding the game..... then this will fall into place...

good luck :)

theres a good tutorial on gametoast on how to import into the game, try visiting http://www.gametoast.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&file=viewtopic&t=51 and u should be able to import, as for the lightsaber, just open up mace windus saber and change the purple to blue

I've seen that before I just don't understand it.

Is that going to work? I mean, the skin will look good, but the model itself won't have the right shape to it, so the hair will look like tattoos on a bald head...

It might work better if you apply that skin to Luke instead. You did a good job on it, though!

well if he followed the pattern of the mace skin down to the last pixle, then it wont have any problems with the suit, the suit will look alright, im not 100% sure about the head, u might be able to get away with it i mean is lukes hair a special part of the model? if the mace reskin doesnt work with the hair u could always try luke reskinnned

I purposely followed Mace down to the pixel and while this skin wouldn't work on Luke an Obi-Wan could be made for Luke.
