i wanted to see if i could get JK3 weapons in jk2. after opening the pk3 i change the folder name to models/weapons2/saber instead of models/weapons2/(sword name here) it half worked. the model shows up fine just no textures, skins anything. its just grey. can someone tell me how to get the skins/texture to show. i've tried everything i can think of and am no good at modding and stuff.
Like with Windows OS backwards compatibility with JK3 going to JK2 does not work to well. Unlike JA, JK2 was setup for single saber combat aka just kyle's lightsaber. Less of course your on DS-Online. :naughty:
It's been a while (since i don't play Outcast anymore), but this is how I got it to work, and it usually does: make sure you have TWO folders, one being the one in the pk3 you downloaded and another being the saber you are wanting to replace, whether it's Desann's, Kyle's, Luke's, or the Reborn's. You will need to pull out the md3 and glm and rename them to the names given to the hilts they use depending on which one it is, and stick them in that new folder (i.e, saber, saber_reborn; etc.); and leave the textures associated with it in the folder they came in. That should work. I do that all of the time with guns and it works.
can you try explaining again? i didn't quite understand.
acually i understood some but it didn't make that much sense. i try what i thought it said though it took a while. sorry. it worked but the game crashed after a few seconds and said ran out of transform space for ghoul2 models . adjust miniheapsize in sv_severside or something like that
Well, that sucks. If that's happening with some of those hilts, I don't know why. I forgot to mention that there may be some hilts that are already named saber_w.glm. In those cases, just make a folder which bears the name of the hilts that the game uses that you are wanting to replace(saber, saber_desann, saber_luke, or saber_reborn) and slap the saber_w.glm (from the folder that comes with the custom saber you downloaded) in there and delete the one in the folder that came with the custom saber; nothing but the textures should be in there. If they still crash, let me know.
i tried some others and it seems big swords like the buster sword crash the game. i did what you said in the above post and it only lasted a few more seconds than before T_T. other swords work pretty much perfectly. thanks for your help
