Hello there! ;) OK,so this is my new skin I've been working on...it's an Ep3 Anakin Hooded skin (look at the attached screenshot).To give this skin an unique touch I've decided not to make the right hand just black but to skin the robotic hand as it looks like without the black glove. Now I need somebody to make a metallic shader for me and put it on the robotic hand in order to make it look shiny since metal is shiny lol :p So if you would be so kind doing this for me reply here and I will send you a PM.Thanks in advance :) Oh...and please don't ask me why I don't use the new Sith Anakin model for a hooded version of Anakin.The reason is that I've started working on my skin 2 weeks ago and actually finished almost everthing yesterday when this Sith Anakin model was just released and since I've put much work and effort into my skin I don't want to give it up and start again just because there's a better model for such a skin out there now. :)

His hand is more wires than metal, methinks... Besides, these shaders have been posted time and time again. I'm sure if you take under 5 minutes to look for one, you can find it and do this yourself.

Sadly you can not expect everyone to actually search the forum for answers, most of them never do... but yea...

///Metallic shader

PATH { { map PATH blendFunc GL_ONE GL_ZERO rgbGen lightingDiffuse } { map gfx/effects/chr_inv blendFunc GL_DST_COLOR GL_SRC_COLOR tcGen environment } }

did you write your paths in and put the gfx/effects/chr_inv in your pk3?

Well, not about the shaders but if you're wanting a better view of the hand, there's a view of it http://www.aptirrelevance.com/sw-archive/imgview.php?id=01404 . As far as the shaders all I can suggest is that you double check your paths.

Haruki Exodisdid you write your paths in and put the gfx/effects/chr_inv in your pk3?[/QUOTE] Yeah,I've put it in but still no shiny effect there :( Do I actually have to change something on the hand texture/image in order to make the shader work?I read those shader tutorials ten times but I just don't understand them.It's the first time that I use a shader and I'm trying everything but nothing works.I'm probably doing something wrong...

Wow,thanks!This will help me a lot to improve the hand :Pc:

This shader will add a slight shine, that will be barely noticeable in your case because the hand is a small object. Maybe you want to try a specular shader.

Well...since the shader you gave me doesn't make the shiny effect really visible on the hand I would try another one but I can't find anyone or let's say,maybe I found one but I'm not sure if it's the right one...But tell me please one thing 'cause I'm not sure about it since I didn't really understand the shader tutorials: Must the texture image of the robotic hand be a TGA file and do I actually have to make something special with the texture image of the hand in order to make the shader work?I think I read about this in the tutorials but I could've misunderstood something,probably everything :lol: Anyway,can you tell me exactly what I have to do make to make this damn shader work?Your help would be much appreciated :) Thanks in advance :thumbsup:
