hey guys, i'm new to this forum so first of all hi to everyone. i have the same problem and i must admit it really annoys me. added some custom skins to my game and most of them work just fine. but with 2 skins (hs_anakin and general windu) i encounter the very same problem, that the blades are invisible until i throw the sword. maybe somebody knows how to fix this. any help would be fine.

When you throw the saber, does the console display any errors?
This shouldn`t matter , but have you updated the game to version 1.01? Did you put "HS-anakin_saber-SP.pk3" and "General Windu Saber.pk3" in your "Base" folder? If you did , try moving them out. It also shouldn`t matter , but who knows , maybe it will help. Both skins can work normally without them. What else did you add to your "Base" folder? Something could be causing this problem.
thanks fpr your quick answers, things i also have in my base folder are a hilt pack, custom skins: maulvm, yodavm, vadervm, hs_kenobi_rots, grievous, darth nihilus and darth savet. they all work fine. i didn't put the extra saber files for anakin and widu into the base folder because i implemented them into the pk3's of the skins. mmaybe thats the reason. i'll check it out.nevertheless it works with all other skins

I'd try removing all your non needed PK3s (Every PK3 but the assets and those skins/models) out of the base folder and into a temp folder on your desktop... then if everything works fine you know it's another PK3 interfering with the skins/models somehow then slowly add the PK3s back until you find the troublesome one.
Yes , do what Link said. I would suggest the same thing. I suspect that hilt pack to be the cause of your problem , but I could be wrong.
i removed every pk3 except the standard ones (assets pk3's) but the problem remains. seems that the skin doesn't work correctly in single player mode :( i think i'll try to do a windu skin myself :) nonetheless i apreciate your help, thanks a lot. besides, if my english sucks, i'm sorry i'm from germany ;)
I have those same models , but I never tryed them in Singleplayer , only Multiplayer and they work fine for me there. Do you have that problem just in Singleplayer or in Multiplayer too? If you haven`t patched your game yet , please do. Might help.
i've patched it to 1.01 and i didn't get any console errors, strange huh?just in singleplayer, don't play multiplayer very often. hs_anakin and hs_kenobi_rots work well in singleplayer. maybe this custom model isn't meant to work in sp mode
I looked around a bit and it seems that you are not the only one with this problem. Take a look at this: General Windu, Jedi Knight 3 Downloads, Jedi Knight 3 Star Wars Note the comment under number 32. It seems that the author of the model messed something up. Sorry I couldn`t help. But hey , with the invisible blade your enemyes might think that you are unarmed and make easyer targets. :lol:
