This is the error that I got how do i fix it?

R_CreateImage: Models/weapons2/saber/saber.tga deimensions (442x441) not power of 2

07-29-2002, 03:18 PM
Resize the image so that the dmiensions are a power of two. For example, 128x128, 256x256 or 512x512.

It works now, But all I have is kyles saber with my skin,

1-pak file structure for the saber may be off. Make sure it's /weapons2/saber

2 - the model isn't in GLM format. Maybe this should be reason number one.

Psynex can i email you it? the Pak structure is Models/weapons2/saber and the saber is in glm format!

Psynex, i was reading these posts and i noticed something. YOu actually help people! And not just antone, you actually help us newbies! and i just would like to say, Thankyou.

You too JRA_Wolf, there is a reason your on my sig :p

Its people like you 2 that make this forum community what it is today, a great community. So i hope other Experienced modeler would stop just for once, and help us newbies out

Well, what can I say. Everyone needs it, even me. I remember what it was like being the "new guy" in the forums. Couldn't get a break. I just kept at it though time after time I felt inferior and wanted to quit. But noone should have to deal with that because everyone in here is capable of creating wonderful things, why stunt that ability? I'm still a newb to the Q3/jk2 editing ordeal as well, so I figure if I help, I'll get helped. We're in this together. I notice you have JRA_wolf as one who helped you with UVW mapping. I too am looking for a few quick pointers dealing with some odd shapes I'm dealing with. How did you contact him on this?


I'm seeing an unfamiliar file in your pak. Thumbs.db. What is this for? Everything else looks good. AHA! I'm 99.9% sure I know what the problem is. I'm testing it right now and should send it back shortly.

thumbs.db is a file for windows that databases all of the windows thumbnails :P

You can contact me through PM or email (wolf@mysticdale.com)

I should have known that. I didn't expect a respons from you at all JRA_Wolf. Most people making models in this place must be so full of themselves getting all this attention they can't take the time to help a brutha out. Unfortuanately I am at work right now and won't be back to my "workbench" for at least 4 hours. I'll send you some pics then of what it is exactly I'm doing and see what advice you have to offer. Thanks BTW.

I contacted JRA Wolf through a thread i posted called "UVWrapping Help" like 1 month ago and he REALLY helped me. so i bet if you had time you will find the thread somewhere. Ill try and find it

07-30-2002, 03:18 PM
Bingo, i found it. I am still suprised at how an experienced Modeler like JRA wolf Helped me out like this. Heres the link

He basically told me a very important side note of using the cylindral UVWrap instead of the one used by this one tut done by the Brothers in Arms ( by they way, their tutorial is still helpfull so im not trying to flame them)

I sent you 2 emails, just want to make sure you have them.
