need help modding and adding weapons to ai.
« on: June 15, 2010, 08:16:05 AM »
i am working on a mod i will call hard contact mod that makes the clones look like in the previews (chrome and identical to each other) and I got that far, but i need to change the HUD so 38s arms are chrome too (like the commando clean). I also need to know how to give weapons to ai in maps (trough acter properties or somthing) like a clone with a rocket launcher sort of thing.

by the way i still have the problem that wont let me oppen up acter properties. HElP :cry:

sorry for all the noobish questions.  :mrgreen:     I just love swrc

To reskin 38's HudArms: Open the Texture Browser. In the drop down menu select:
HudArmsTextures>HudArms. There you will find a texture named HudArms. Just plain HudArms. And also a texture named HudArmsWhite_Shader. Rename that to HudArms.
I think that's how you do it.

The more complicated way is with GIMP. Take a screen shot of the HudArmsWhite_Shader. (alt+prt scr/sysrq) Paste it into gimp. Choose the selct tool and select the picture of the hudarmswhite_shader. Now scale it to 512x512. Copy it, and then create a new GIMP Picture, that is 512x512. Now click CTL+V.(Paste) Save the picture of the 512x512 HudArmsWhite_Shader as a .TGA(TarGa), and name it "HudArms" (without the quotes). Now go back to unrealed where you first took the picture of the HudArms. Click File>Import. Find you HudArms TGA, and click open. In the name thing, type HudArms if you haven't saved your picture with that name. Make the MIPS 2. Now click OK. If you have done this correctley, 38's HudArms should now be white/chrome. I hope I helped.

You want to reskin the boss hudarms for campaign or mp ? for SP the most totally easy way to do is to open textures and goto Hudarms textures select HudarmsWhite texture right clik EXPORT TO FILE it will save as HudArmsWhite so delete the "White" and save it as HudArms.bmp    make sure u add .bmp at end . ok so then u reimport it  File Import and name it HudArms replacing your existing hudarms but make sure u set the MIPS at 2 and the compression as DXT3  . then exit and save te updated texture file . thats the easiest way .. 8-)
