hi... im havin a prob with my torpedoes... i have tried to edit the flare textures usin photoshop... i edited them to make em look COMPLETELY different, but when i go to play the game, it looks exactly the same... this is because the torpedo is using the core texture for both the core and the flares... (if u get me lol) and if i edit the core, the flares get edited in the same way i dont no if anyone else is experiencing this, but it would be a gr8 help if sum1 could tell me how to fix it! THANX PPL!

thats strange it never happened to me. check the script in your scripts/tactical/porjectiles folder.there find your torpedo and open it. scroll down to where it looks like this:

kCoreColor, 0.1, 6.0, "data/Textures/Tactical/BorgTorpCore.tga", <---this is the core texture kGlowColor, 6.75, 1.02, 1.0, "data/Textures/Tactical/TorpedoFlares.tga", <---this is the flare texture kFlareColor, 4, 0.2, 0.3) make sure they aren't the same hope this helps you

Hmm, I thought I had this too, are you getting a square white box or oblong in Photoshop? I had to look through and amended the alpha channel before I could get the changes to take, unfortuantly I got the square torpedo effect and gave up in the end....

no no, i dont get a box, i get a texture that looks exactly the same as the core (its using the core texture for the flares)... and when i edit the flare, it saves and evrything, but it has no effect in-game... the core is still used. maybee ill have to just settle wit wot i got lol. thanx 4 tryin though! :beamme:
