OpenBRF : Can open BRF files AKA the textured models to see them
Wings3D : Creates models

Well here's a problem I just found with the OpenBRF, and I don't know how to solve it.

Two days ago I edited the colours2.dds file, turning the 33rd's colours into the 82nd's. Thing is, when I saved the file and compiled it as DXT 1, the resolution dropped massively, and, in simple words, the flag looked awful.

I decided it would be a good idea to sacrifice a bit of disc space in the name of HD flags (come on. They're the Colours. You can't deny HD to the Colours), so I got back to work with the flags and this time compiled them into a R5G6B5 format (four times the disc space, but great looking texture... Tis barely 2mb anyways). The problem is, even though the game supports them, OpenBRF doesn't, and it may be a problem once I start making custom textures and such. I really, really want to have nice looking HD drums for the 42nd and KGL, but this will get problematic once textures start playing jokes on me.

Any solution?

Credits:
  • The musket models without bayonet are modified versions of the original fixed muskets.

  • The fixing&unfixing animations were made by me, CaseOfInsanity and it's free to use. If your mod ends up using the animations, it would be nice of you to mention my name  :)
As stated by himself, some of the code is not finished. I'l try to figure it out and post here any fixes i figure out, If anyone else feels like doing the same it would be appreciated

Its not crap its simple. Blender is complicated for new users. Wings is a bit more use friendly. Ofcourse you sad people should learn to use Maya.

Hello everyone :)

I want to become a texturer to make new uniforms / change their colour and add a plume or something. I want to make uniforms for regiments I like and which are not in the game (like for minor german states / special  or elite regiments).
The problem is I dont want to pay 200 Euros for an image editor (photoshop) and there are not many texturers using free programs like GIMP. But since I am a beginner in texturing, there are some questions which BetaKnight or Atilla the Nun can't answer because they use photoshop.
I'll come to the point : I am looking for a texturer who can answer the questions I have (like where do I find this and this part of the grenadier's equipment) or give me some tips. If the texturer has an advice to get a different FREE program, I would get it if it's better than GIMP for texturing.

Please send me a PM if interested in helping a newbie :)

Just google for tutorials, or watch them on youtube. There are plently of them.

Don't use wings its crap and simple, use blender.

There is nothing wrong with Wings3D, perhaps it doesn't look so fancy, but it's easy to learn, and to use to create proper models in no-time.
