I am wanting to make a skin mod. I am using a model from a different game. I am aware that I will not be able to release it here... But I am having trouble with getting it to work correctly. I am using 3DS Max and Kam's Scripts.
I am following this tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc7SHyszHi0&feature=fvwrel
The Models I plan on working with have multiple sections, for example, The model is made up of separate sections and each individual section can be move around separately. I am having trouble because of this. At the part in the Tutorial, where I have to attach the polygon from the base model to the model I am working with, it only attaches to one of the sections of the model I am using. But if I merge all of the sections of the Model I am working with the textures don't cover the model correctly, making it look horrible. From what I gather by studying other modder's ped mod's in 3DS Max, It's possible to have the separate sections in 1 .dff file(Please, Correct me if I am wrong.)? Or how do I assign certain sections a specific texture at some point in the process?(If this is right, Please tell me how).
One attempt I made was strange... I tried something, then when I tried to test in-game, the game became unresponsive, it didn't crash, it didn't freeze, everything was still moving(like peds in background/CJ's idle animation). But I couldn't do anything, couldn't exit skin selector. The only thing I could do is pause the game, and start new game or quit...
(If my explanation isn't clear, let me know and I'll try to explain more clearly...)
If anyone can help me learn how to do this or direct me to a detailed easy to understand guide, I would greatly appreciate it!
EDIT: I think I figured it out... But since I am new to modding, I still have much to learn... I figured out the texture thing though. I had to load the Model with the original (Name).mtl file in the same folder with all of the textures, then 'merge' all of the sections of the model, then export the 'whole' model then the textures will appear right.
EDIT 2: I am still having issues with the game becomng unresponsive where I can't move anything but it wasn't frozen. The peds were still moving and so was CJ. But as I said above, I couldn't do anything.
EDIT 3: Here is a screenshot of the game becoming unresponsive. What I do is, I select my skin, Then I can't do anything. The game doesn't
crash, or freeze. CJ and the Pedestrians are still moving. The only thing I can do is pause, then quit/reload the file/etc.
I also tried following goin-god's
Tutorial, but this problem still persists... Please help! This post has been edited by Rai1994 on Thursday, May 17 2012, 19:04
