I decided to try my hand at skinning the Colt 45. When I finished... I converted my .dds to .iwi, plopped it into an .iwd, and ran the game.
I loaded a mission to test it, and when I pulled it out in-game it was solid white.........
Is there some special way I need to convert it? Because I'm a little anxious to try it in-game (and release it, afterwards).
Send the .dds file to me at [EMAIL="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL] and ill try and do it right.
Can't you just tell me, or post a link to a tutorial?
I'll send it, but what am I going to do with any future skins I make?
I've sent it to you, check your Inbox.
Here's the file, download from here 'till CoDFiles puts it up.
The skin was white because the file name was incorrect. You have to remember to make sure the file name after conversion is the same filename as the original skin file.
