I need help with skining. Really I just need a good tut and someone to explain stuff to me. I tried ready that skining tut that is on the main page but that didnt really help me. I already know how to make maps. So if anyone knows how to skin but would like to map, we can do a little bizness. If you would like to check out my map u can find it at http://jedioutcastmaps.com the map file is called Training Experience (training_xp) here is a pic of the map if you would like to check it out before u dl it. although jedioutcastmaps as a couple pics there too.
learn how to CG, remember, smudge, burn and dodge tools are your best friend, so are tablets if you can afford them, then the last thing to rememer is keep in mind the skins are flats and are to be wrapped around the model so everything looks stretched
Do you know where i can find this program that will allow me to do the things u talked about?
in the software store where else, photoshop is top of the bill, really good really expensive, then there's paintshop pro not as good and not as expensive, then there's the GIMP a photoshop 3 clone it's free and from hear say it's quite ok, you can download it here
yeah i have adobe photoshop but i dont even know where to begin. What do u draw a model and then just make it into a pk3 file or something. By the way have u ever made models before? and if so do you have any pics i could see?
no don't model, and you skin the uvmaps from a model (flats) have you even read the tutorial??? it's pretty selfexplanatory
yes i read it but it seemd a littel confusing. When i painted what i wanted and read named the file to the new character it didnt even show up in the game. I will read it again to see if i skipped a step.
hey i finally made it but but the model wont show up in the game, the only thing that does show up is my pic that i made in the character selection part. Do u know what i did wrong
yes if you only see a weapon or a sabre you messed up your .skin file
remember the paths have to be correct in the skinfile
the bold things are the things you should check, the path and extension has to be correct according to your folders
what do u mean by skin file? Do u mean like if i used luke then everything should be in the Luke models/players/Luke folder when im done? is the .skin file the file that say model_default_a name.skin? and if so where do i put that. Oh i think i get it. So if i use Luke and I change his legs around. When i out it back into the file it has to say Luke_legs? But i thought it was supposed to say Blade for instance if that was the character you were going to make.
