A small issue...need assistance

Post by xzenox7 » Tue Mar 12, 2013 10:33 am

I'm having a problem getting the Borg Ultritium Burst pod to show up and animate correctly. Instead, there is a white box between the pod, as if a file is missing. This is not a huge issue, as the weapon itself works perfectly. However, I would like to fix this problem. Here is a pic of what I am talking about.

Note: This is an unmodded, fresh install of the game!

The texture on the mesh is missing.
Use Storm 3D to find out which texture is assigned to the mesh.

First, I don't think anything is wrong with your game. I believe that is the way it game out of the box. Second, if you look at the mesh in the storm 3d tool (Borpod9.SOD), it appears that the texture file for the ribbon is missing. It looks to be mapped to noIcon.tga which doesn't exist. If you have A2 take the texture file called wbplanes.tga and copy it to the A1 texures folder then rename it to noIcon.tga and it should work, complete with animation.

If you don't have A2 then make a copy of the Wpsyblst.tga texture file and then rename it to noIcon.tga. Check in Storm 3d tool and it should be good to go.
