how do you change the color of the flame on the archangel's sword, or is that part of the model?

No it isn't part of the model, you should just be able to go into the Character folder in data.pak and follow the links from there to the texture files, which you can then edit (you know, model->materials->textures, you'll have to look through the materials until you find the flame, it must be there because the NCF angel-based creatures have different colour ones, iirc...). Alternatively, it is an effect (sounds more likely now I come to think about it), in which case you need to find the animset file, then look in the idle anim, then effect->model->model->materials->textures or something like that, I can't quite remember.

@Gnoll Mage
i dont quite full understand on how to find the files for the fire effect on the archangel's sword


EDIT:i need help with icons, i have 32 and 64 and 124, but the main keeps messing up because i can never convert the file from a tga or jpg because its not a power of 2(55x55)

Why is it 55x55? Can't you just resize it, then save it as dds (is that what you're trying to do?)? :confused:

You can resize it? Because when i extract it, and make from dds to tga, its 55x55 acording to photoshop, and dds converter v 2.1
cannot convert something to dds unless its a power of 2

Hmm odd, that's sensible because I think that DDS files can only be multiples of two in dimension - but then why was it 55x55 in the first place?

But of course you can resize images in Photoshop. Just go Image -> Image Size.

PS On a slightly unrelated note, did you consider installing the NVidia DDS plugin, it would be much easier to do things than with a stand-alone convertor (which is what I presume you're talking about)?

well i do have the plugin, but when i save it a bunch of options show up, so i just press save(i have to resize it thought). But when i look over it with photoshop it appears with high constrast, its very lightened. I'm not sure what caused this, but i imported it and it's all messed up, only the 128x128 works

If i'm doing something wrong or different, please tell me

It doesn't work with PlayObjectAnimation. I made a script for an ambush.
The region's name is ambush01.


function ambush01( heroname )
if GetObjectOwner( heroname ) == PLAYER_2 then
StartCombat( heroname, nil , 3,  113, 1, 113, 1, 113, 1, nil
Trigger( REGION_ENTER_AND_STOP_TRIGGER, "ambush01", nil);
end;
end;

But it isn't working either. Why?

Easier to tell you:

Open the Map Editor, go to Adventure Map Shared properties, and where it says Model: {Long string of stuff} click once, then click on the [...] box, then find a Hero in the folders.

@Arhaeus: did you set the Trigger() outside of the function?
Trigger( REGION_ENTER_AND_STOP_TRIGGER, "ambush01", ambush01);

@WarPriest: of course it is possible to save 55x55 as DDS. You just have to pay attention in the save dialog, and set the correct options.
Plus, in ToE, you only need the 128x128 icon anyway.

@VokialBG: in your winrar screenshots, the rar format is selected, and it's not clear at all that zip format HAS to be selected. A rar archive renamed to h5u will not work, and I'm afraid not everyone reading your post knows that.

For everyone having problems with renaming files: just change your damn windows settings to always show the file extensions. You'll be far safer!
And if IE keeps renaming your files when downloading, just drop it for a real browser.

Okay possibly what's happening is that you're trying to save mipmaps when you don't need any. But that couldn't be all that's wrong, so could you send me the tga/jpg?

Edit: sf is almost certainly right, that you don't need the biggest size of icon (just use the 128 version for this one maybe?)

I succeeded with:

function Fambush01( heroname )
if GetObjectOwner( heroname ) == PLAYER_2 then
StartCombat( heroname, nil , 3,  113, 1, 113, 1, 113, 1, nil);
Trigger( REGION_ENTER_AND_STOP_TRIGGER, "ambush01", nil);
end;
end;
Trigger( REGION_ENTER_AND_STOP_TRIGGER, "ambush01", "Fambush01");

But I don't know now how to implement "messagebox". Where to save the txt file to be seen by the game?

@Arhaeus: you place the txt file in your map folder (for example: Maps/Singleplayer/MyMap/my_message.txt), and then you use it with:
MessageBox(GetMapDataPath().."my_message.txt");

@WarPriest, Gnoll_Mage: DXT3 requires multiples of 4 as width/height, but not 8.8.8.8 ARGB. Also select "2D texture". Even with MipMaps, it will save any size.
