Ghost Items

I'm just making a couple items for the Exile and her party members. Nothing fancy, just giving some things different stats and changing some colors on preexisting items. The problem is, when I see my item in the game, it is semi-transparent like a ghost. It is most pronounced on shinier items like sword blades.

Anyone ever run into this issue? I'm just doing some recolorings in a photoeditor and saving them as is.

Yeah, actually. The problem is that the textures have an alpha layer. This is an "imaginary" sub-layer used to "tag" certain spots for use. K1 and K2 use them for the texture effects, like the shine. You need to make a regular .txt file with the same name as the texture(minus the .tga extension, if it's present). In the file, if you want shine instead of transparency, type the following:

Code:
envmaptexture CM_Baremetal
Then save the file, but change the extension to .txi. After that, you should be all set.


Always remember modders: "Quality= Effort*Time"
