Im looking to change the color of the bowcaster shots, if thats even possible, im aiming for a blue, in the same intensity of the current green, if not i'll have to settle with green
i think you just can edit the efx images they should be under efx/weapons/bowcaster or something like that
Its a start Delta, I just need to learn to edit effects now :p
For the .efx files, IIRC you need to change some numbers. There will be sets of three numbers all less than or equal to one. These relate to the amount of red, green and blue in the effect. If you have a certain color in GIMP, take the RGB values and divide them by 255 to get the less-than-or-equal-to-one values you need.
Also check the gfx files for bowcaster shot images. I have just got a new (behemoth of a) computer since my laptop decided to give up and my Jedi Academy disc 2 is a bit iffy, so I can't reinstall it just now. If I get it up and running, I'll double check this stuff. EDIT: Just got it installed. As far as I can tell, these are the files that need altering. If someone could double check, that'd be great...
EDIT #2: Tried it for myself. If I was a bit more careful in GIMP, the effects would've been more cleancut. As they are, they have a sort-of white outline/glow around the shots. Anyway, here's a little demo of what can be done with RGB at 10, 80, 245. Nothing here is made by me - just recolored from the things in Assets1.pk3 Incase my instructions were hard to interpret (admittedly, it was a lot of guesswork...) you can see what I did with this little download. EDIT #3: Forgot to add a sample of the color I used...
actually if it wasnt for the white glow, I think i can figure it out now, next step for me, is to learn more about gimp and make the bowcaster into the "moonraker laser" :p
