Chrome To A Normal Texture??
« on: July 25, 2010, 08:53:44 PM »

I want a tutorial, learning how to change a chrome texture to a normal one

Example: I want the gordon_glove_chrome.bmp, without chorme, with a normal texture (without chorme, of course).

Use Jed's Half-Life Model Viewer to open the model, go to the textures tab and find the glove chrome, uncheck the chrome settings and save the model.

It looks ugly without chrome though.  :-\

If you want, say, an actual glove texture tho, a la HL2, you'll have to UV and skin it yourself. No other way. It'd be simpler to just hack the SC4 hand to it instead if that's what you're aiming for.

Ha, Good luck with that. Since the Sven Coop hands aren't flatposed, and the links for the flatposed hands are down, you're going to need to learn how to model and rig.

But if you want HL2 hands, I made something similar for HL:S only.

There's a few refs for the HD skeleton, but they need to be rerigged to work properly. So yeah, you're gonna need some modelling expertise.

Also, those hands are hot. D:

It should look good, since you're the one who made it.

Assign the chrome to a new, non-chrome material, and UV it.
