Hi all... I was fiddling around with JK:JA and I figured some of the saber colors don't look quite right. for example the purple is just flat-out magenta! lol I went to edit them and heres how i went about it... i used winRAR to unzip the assets1 file in the base folder. from there I did my editting of the [*insert color here*]line.jpg files via photoshop elements 3.0 (:bows:), saved them, and rezipped the folder as a pk3 file... unfortunately, it didn't work.. i came to the shocking conclusion (:lol:)that i must have done somthing wrong... perhaps there are certain 3rd party programs I need... or somthing... if NEone can help It would be much appreciated. thanx all :D

1) Are you saving it as a seperate pk3?

2) The path's have to be the same

3) Is you're game patched? Dont ask me why I said this one.

I think there's an RGB color entry in the sabre effects file which you need to edit.

Did you make sure your pk3 comes AFTER the assets pk3s? You have to name it so that its located after the assets ones so it gets loaded after the assets.

I did not have to. I just edited the pictures, saved as jpg (I think it was that) then I just put it in a new pk3 with all the right paths.

I copied the assets1 file, renamed the original to assets10, using winRAR, i then unpacked the original to a creatively named "new folder", which was still in the same base file. from there I went into that "new folder", edited what i needed, saved it, deleted the assets10.pk3 file and rezipped "new folder" as assets1.pk3. again, all this was done in the original GameData/base jkfolder. so anyway, seeing how the NEW pk3 file was in the same file as the ORIGINAL, it seems to me that it would be the same path.. icould be wrong.. i have afterall never done this kinda thing before. I REALLY hope tha made sense to you... lol it made sense in my head.. said sense kinda got lost in translation lol anyway, i hope that helped you

First, you need pakscape, the pk3 opener. You can find pakscape here: http://jediknight2.filefront.com/file/Pakscape;31681

Once you have pakscape on you're comp you need to open assets1.pk3. Once opened click on 'GFX', then effects, then sabers at the bottom. Once inside copy the file you wanna edit. For example I'll go 'yellow_line.jpg'. Copy that onto you're desktop, then edit it in any image editing program. Once you've done you're editing save it as 'Yellow_line.jpg', or whatever one you edited. Now go back into pakscape. Make a new pk3 file, and create the folder 'GFX', inside GFX make 'effects', inside that copy and paste you're 'yellow_line.jpg'(or what ever one you edited) into the folder 'effects'. Now save you're pk3 as anything you want, save it to base folder, And

WALA!

If you need additional help just ask.

How's that?

Yeah that's it. Voila. I knew that it was wrong somehow. Also, I dont know why it wont let you. Maybe you're saving it as the wrong jpeg type. I dont know.
