How should LWO models be imported to TDM?

No shader issue with the model. Even if path to textures set to like "//doom\darkmod\textures\props\trees"

Do i need MTR file to represent model in DR or what?

Thanks!

What excuse do we have not to sculpt, and sculpt, and sculpt, until the job is done?

All textures in the game require a material shader, because a "texture" in D3 is usually a mixture of three or more different image files.

 

For basic testing, all you need is this:

 

shader_name

{ diffusemap "[path and name of image file]"}

 

Then name the surface "shader_name" in LW.

Can you be more specific about shader and LW?

Got mtr and textures, they look allright in TDM

Yes, as long as the majority of it doesn't cast shadows that should be fine. A lower poly version for LOD would also be useful.

specifying my own paths to the textures but retaining the original texture names didn't work, so I have to open up the .LWO model in a text editor (in this case notepad++) and see what path the model was expecting to see.

 

Is there no way to use custom paths with an .LWO model then..?

You could either use a skin, or remake the material shader to point to your own textures.

It should. The .lwo model just points to a regular material shader, like tdm_dark_wood.

      Jeff, I sent you PM a few weeks back but you did not respond. Maybe your inbox is full?

      I was playing Skyrim, got bored fast. Got back to The Dark Mod just for one mission, played "Somewhere above the City" which is not really a great mission but still good, as in above-average.
      My biggest regret is living in this country, where there's a heat wave, I am sweating at 20c and I really wish for temperatures below 5c.

      Is there something wrong with the forums lately, or is it my browser? I've been having trouble formatting posts, and just now I couldn't format anything at all.
      I'm using Vivaldi.
      Usually I have to: select text, click bold, nothing happens, select again, click bold, then it works. 
      Same for other stuff, like creating spoilers, bullet points, links. Nothing works the first time.

      Back from a spontaneous 1-week trip to Lanzarote with wife and son. I hope beta testing has been going well...
