    [Guide] Make custome skins

    Ok well i have been around MMowned for a while now and i decided to post one of my guides. I'v seen enough people spamming threads with "WTB L337z Texturs changes!!!111' so i hope this will help those people out. By the way not everyone will understand what to do so take your time.

    Programs!

    MWCS -- http://www.verzend.be/v/6462731/mywa...io9.0.rar.html

    BLP converter -- http://wowdev.org/files/index.php?act=view&id=37


    How To Edit Textures!

    1. Open up MWCS.


    2. Open Patch.MPQ


    3. Find the texture you want to edit (.blp) I will be useing the Elekk.


    4. Now Extract it.


    5. Run it through your BLP converter. (sorry for no pic, its really straight forward though).

    6. Now that you have it open up some drawing program (paint ect.) Also http://www.gimp.org/ works well too!


    7. Edit it.


    7. Save your finished work.

    8. Make sure you rerun your 'newly designed' texture through the BLP convertor again. (make sure to remove the origional texture).

    9. Make it into an MPQ with the right treepath


    10. Enjoy your new texture all throughout Azeroth

    Here are what some can end up like




    And if your really talented --
    :P crazy stuff!





    Hope this guide helped! GL!

    Nice work, you probably should mention that better tools will be needed to make better textures.

    Either photoshop or the GIMP (http://www.gimp.org/) work the best imo.

    Re: How To : Make custome skins!

    Great! But one question, whenever I edit the texture and make it .blp again and add it to a .mpq file, the texture is either fuzzy or strecthed out. And if I edit something in white, when I log in, the whole texture is just green, or you see blackspots around the texture where it's supposed to be white. Do you know some kind of solution how to fix this?

    Some textures are just very buggy and don't work properly. Kepp trying with different things.

    BTW links fixed.

    Re: How To : Make custome skins!

    Is it alright if I ask again a few questions? I've edited some other textures then armor, but still I get the same results, with same results I mean that they are just black only. Here's an example:



    This is when it's zoomed in, when I zoom out the whole texture is black.

    and this is the texture:



    It's based of "Helm_Leather_RaidRogue_A_01.blp" , and just like the other .blp files I just get a black texture like the one above if I edit the texture. I edit the textures in paint just like the guide said, so I don't think I'm doing anything wrong. Is the problem MWCS or WoW itself?
