Hey, thanks a lot DarthDingDong. That's a great tutorial for someone who just wants a custom color without modelling his own hilt.
I was just wondering, is the part with KAuroraEditor necessary ? Somehow the application never worked for me (something to do with .NET Framework I guess, I thought I already had updated it though...), and I tried to complete the tuto without it : it worked.
The only thing I changed in the process was directly extracting the .mdl without double-clicking on it. So it was not named ***-ascii.mdl but had directly the name I wanted. And of course I had to extract manually the blade's .tga.

<edit />Got it, thanks again for the tutorial. I just found out that it works also for Masks, Blades, etc...

The KAuroraEditor Part Is Sometimes Nesascary Deending On How You Extracted The Model

If You Do What You Did However It Isnt :)

If you PM me with the error message you're getting when firing up KAurora, I'll have a look into it. Did you install the DirectX .NET libraries? Those are necessary for KAurora to work, due to its rendering engine.
