I am relatively new to skinning and I have looked everywhere for this, I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to make a body part glow, for instance eyes?

You can not create a conventional "glow" with Jedi Academy. You can do what they did with the jawa eyes - make map lightning not affect the texture. Here's an example of the jawa eye "glow" shader: models/players/jawa/jawa_eyes { { map models/players/jawa/jawa_eyes rgbGen lightingDiffuse } { map models/players/jawa/jawa_eyes blendFunc GL_ONE GL_ONE glow rgbGen identity } } Here's the same shader, in generic form: models/players/yourskin/yourtexture { { map models/players/yourskin/yourtexture rgbGen lightingDiffuse } { map models/players/yourskin/yourtexture blendFunc GL_ONE GL_ONE glow rgbGen identity } }

No, you really HAVEN'T looked everywhere for this. Anyway, the one that Inyri posted is probably the best thing for this.

What's the point of that? I won't make a difference. (Unless it screws up the icon)

no, sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesnt work on the icon. you can have some cool effects on them though.

Oh, you mean like moving shaders I take it. At first I thought you meant stuff like reflectivity, which would be completely pointless.

Yeah, but, it doesnt always work =\. I've recently tried doing it again, and the icon goes black, but other times i've used a Blueflame scrolling shader that was awesome, so, I dunno =\.

Btw, I think I now understand the tutorial on Qbranch about the glowing skin parts, however I can't download the file and thus can't make the damn thing work!!! I still need to know how to make my alpha channel sections tranparent in-game (Some shader I think) and how to put two skin files on one part of the model. Plus, can I have a slight reflectivity shader, AND the transparency thing on at the same time?

I put this here to save reviving an evn older thread.
