Title: [H.E.V.] H4wK's H.E.V. Reskin. [UPDATED .RAR]
Post by: H4wK on June 20, 2006, 11:39:39 PM
Here's something that I think is a little overdue, its a bit annoying to have to keep going into the OP4:R thread and downloading and extracting, and saving these from the model. I planned on doing this awhile ago, but never did. Thank Shadowe for being the kick in the ass I needed  :P. Included in the .rar are the hi-res (512^2 / 256^2 maps) and lo-res standard(256^2 / 128^2) maps. And by standard I mean thats what they are default on A.I.'s model. Enjoy.

EDIT: Updated the .rar with skins compatable with the default hd arms' UV and dimensions. Enjoy.  ;D

Just use HLMV to change the sleve and glove texture to h4wk's.

Post by: MusicallyInspired on June 21, 2006, 02:53:22 AM
I'm afraid it's more complicated than that. HLMV will only let you import textures of the same size. H4wk's textures are in a higher resolution than the regular AI ones. You'll have to use Milkshape.

Oh if it is just only textures then you can switch the without using Milk Shape  with Jed\'s ’HLMV’ , very simple but some image sizes will not be allowed.

Read h4wks post, he included standard AND high res sizes. I just got done porting this skin onto all of AI's hands that i've got.

[edit]
Goes without saying that the LD arms don't work though ::)


Does anyone know why all hl1 hands keep the same plain-black slightly chromed gloves? I always wondered why nobody redid them to resemble the hl2 gloves more.

Ok people, calm down.

You can change the textures to the high-res ones WITHOUT milkshape.

All you need to do is:


As long as the texture is NOT larger than 512 x 512 pixels and in the same proportion as the original textures (so increasing from 128x128 to 256x256 or 512x512 will work) you will be fine.

Any downloads such as Jed's HLMV you can search for.

Because in HL2 you have the Mark 5 HEV suit. In HL1 you only have the Mark 4 HEV suit. There are differences. That said, someone posted a Mark 5 hands model here somewhere didn't they?

Awesome work, H4wK, awesome work! :D
First we got Toadie's hi-res OP4 arm reskin, now we have H4wK's hi-res HEV reskin.
I think next there should be a hi-res BS arm reskin then. ;D (ok, it's more a comment than a request.)

Ok people, calm down.

You can change the textures to the high-res ones WITHOUT milkshape.

All you need to do is:

  • Decompile the model that you want the larger texture on
  • Replace the hand textures in the folder you decompiled to with the new ones
  • Recompile the model

As long as the texture is NOT larger than 512 x 512 pixels and in the same proportion as the original textures (so increasing from 128x128 to 256x256 or 512x512 will work) you will be fine.

But don't forget to fix the UV map misalignments caused by decompiling!

Ctrlrlrlrlrlr + T in Milkshape.

You can do it in image manipulation programs just shift a pixel to the side needed

Ah, yeah.  I always forget that bit.  I usually end up doing it Aydin's way, although it isn't perfect if the UV goes right up to the edge of the texture, but I don't have a working Milky... Maybe I'll just buy it...

FFS, you're all telling people to decompile when all they need to do is click "low res" instead of "high res" when browsing folders in Jeds!

[edit]

and if you just want the SD hands to use the high res textures when they originally had the low res, whats the point? i've tried both, theres absolutely no difference in quality.

Hm, H4wk's Hazardous EnVironment Suit MK4? It's just the arm, not the whole suit.
Can you try to reskin Romka's H.E.V. Suit model as well?
