Hey.

Ok, making a black saber without replacing the original. Hmm, I've never made a recolor of a saber, but here's how I'd try it, if I were you.

Make a folder in your base/models/weapons2 folder and name it saber_blacksaber (or replace blacksaber with whatever name you want, throughout this message.)

Open up notepad and type:

"w_saber,models/weapons2/saber_blacksaber/saber.tga" and Save-As saber_w.skin

now copy the saber_w.md3 and saber.jpg from kyle's saber folder to the new folder you created.

Next open MD3View and view that md3. If it gives an error, or the texture doesn't load, click file and import the skin file you created. now you should have a skinner duplicate of kyle's hilt.

click file, and chose export as GLM and you're doing good. Open ModView and open that glm file, it should be an exact duplicate of Kyle's hilt still.

Now modify the saber.jpg however you please, and then in ModView hold alt and hit the "R" key, to reload textures, and it should change to your new colored version.

When you're happy with it, pack it all up in a pk3 file and you now have a new hilt, jedimod compatable. you can add an icon if you like, by following the instructions in your jedimod/jediplus folder. I recommend that if you do, you take the screenshot for it in ModView, because it will be cleaner.

Hope that helps.

(oh, by the way, if you do it, and it turns out well, I'd love to get my hands on a copy.)

Oooohh.

Oops. Um, how do you feel about JediPlus? It has an option to make your blade black. I dunno how they do it though.
