Adding Custom tattoo's in San Andreas
The tools you'll need
TXD workshop (tutorial made with 3.5, will also work with newer versions) Download
SA GXT editor Download
1) Making the Tattoo
You can do this in 2 way's :
1) make a new TXD
2) adjust my txd

i'm going to explain way 2, because that's the easy way to make a tattoo.
Download Sergiow.txd LINK
Open it with txd-workshop, you'll see a black image, when you click on alpha, you'll see "Sergiow"
if you want a black tattoo, you only need to adjust the alpha :

Click on alpha/mask, then click on export.
open the exported file with paint, photoshop,... and edit it.
This is a picture so you can see where you're tattoo will be :
user posted image
everything that's white will show up on CJ.

save it as BMP/tga and import it in the txd
be sure that alpha/mask is selected when you import your mask!

click on "alpha mix view" (in txd-workshop) to check if you did it right

Now you have a txd with your own tattoo, now rename it, i named mine Sergiow.txd
Add it to player.img
user posted image
2) Editing Shopping.dat : Part 1
Open GTA San Andreas\data\shopping.dat with notepad.

Go to +- line 520 and there are the tattoos.
This are the code's for where the tattoo should come:
# 4 = left upper arm
# 5 = left lower arm
# 6 = right upper arm
# 7 = right lower arm
# 8 = back top
# 9 = left chest
# 10 = right chest
# 11 = stomach
# 12 = lower back
now make a new line in your shopping.dat (mine is +- line 530) like this :
CODE
Sergiow     SERGIOW  8     -     respect 9      sexy 9      835


Sergiow => name of the TXD (step 1)
SERGIOW => you can choose this, you'll need it in step 4
8 => back top => a tattoo on CJ's back
respect 9 sexy 9 => respect and sexy
835 => price

PICTURE (picture of barton mission editor, you can just use notepad)
3) Editing Shopping.dat : Part 2
Go to +-line 1020.
there are 3 "sections" of tattoo's. here you can choose where you want the tattoo (los santos, las venturas,...).
the 1st section is los santos, the second san fierro and the third las venturas.
just add "item name of TXD" like this :

PICTURE
(my tattoo is in los santos, san fierro and las venturas)
4) Editing the name of your tattoo
open "GTA San Andreas\text\american.gxt" with "GTA: San Andreas GXT Editor 1.2"
Pick Entry -add
user posted image
then it asks a "new name"
In step 2 (shopping.dat) you made a new line :
CODE
Sergiow     SERGIOW  8     -     respect 9      sexy 9      835

the "SERGIOW" needs to be the new name in your GXT-editor
Then on the right you type the name of your tattoo
user posted image
5) The picture you see when you buy a tattoo
Open GTA San Andreas\models\txd\LD_TATT.txd
make a little image (64*64) of your tattoo.
in TXD workshop => image=> new
after that you import your mini-tattoo
double-click on you're mini-tattoo on the left and click on compressed
user posted image
This is what you'll get : http://users.myonlin...24073/tat/7.JPG

Now play GTA, if it doesnt work, just ask smile.gif

Nice tutorial, glad mine helped get everyone started on making new tattoos. I think I will have to revise my tutorial and add in my own take on your tutorial. Hope you don't mind if I add this into mine (of course I will use my own images, and have my own way of explaining it all).

Moerder runs off to revise his tutorial

Maybe you could add links to the tools mentioned, as some are still kind of hard to find, namely the GXT Editor mentioned. I've searched everywhere for one for SA.

This is a great tutorial. Although there may be one for adding clothing to shops, I haven't looked. But using what I learned from this one I was able to add several new items to Didier Sachs. Thanks for the link to that GXT editor. I searched the forums here thoroughly and found nothing before posting.

Hey chief. I just signed up to the boards because of this thread, but I did have a question to you.

You see, I used a derived image from this site for the tribal wings to make it a back tattoo. All went rather well, aside from perhaps two things, one of which I may already have the solution to. The problem, you see, is this: the back tattoo seems to cancel out the visibility of any arm tattoos. CJ still has them, but they just aren't visible. Quite a pickle, because I was rather happy with those large wing-like things confused.gif

Could you perhaps help a guy out? If needs to be, I could send the .BMP and .TXD for you to review. Most likely through e-mail, I guess.

Zip them up and send them to me ([email protected] since the email I use here [my Army email address] doesnt support zip files). I will gladly look at them and help you out to the best of my abilities.

You must have to cause I am still not getting your tutorial to work. I have followed it down to the bottom line like TheAce777 and am getting the same result...

*EDIT* Well I finally got my tattoo to show up on my character. How did I do it? Well I replaced the 4spider tattoo. This is how I did it:

Shopping.dat (Normal):
CODE
 4spider   4SPIDER  4  -  respect 2  sexy 2  60

Shopping.dat (Moerder's Tattoo):
CODE
 4spider     MOERDER    4  -  respect 4  sexy 3  5

Worked perfectly fine like that. All you gotta do is take the 4SPIDER (or whatever the tattoo you want to replace) tag and rename it to something out (MOERDER in this case). Once you do that you can go down Tattoo Parlor section (line 1035) and make sure that 4spider (or the tag of the tattoo your using that is before the one we edited) shows up in the shops you want to be able to get your tattoo in. From there go into the GXT Editor, make sure you are in the "Main" table and go to Entry -> Add. Now this will be whatever you renamed 4SPIDER to. Then put in what you want your tattoo to be called, save it and run the game. This worked for me.

Your point? More people have had problems with the tattoos when you edit the shopping.dat your way. With mine I actually get the damn tattoo to work. And your screenshot doesn't prove if the tattoo actually shows up on your character so I might as well figure that even if I did try doing it your way i would get the same result (no tattoo or a tattoo that is already in the game)....

You can follow Moerder's tutorial for this step. But DON'T do this step => "Go back into IMG Tool and replace the old txd with".

It goes to my website. I have revamped the site and havn't added my GTA:SA tut to it yet. But doesn't really matter since Sergiow has removed my tutorial from his...


Sergiow: I keep seeing you say that your updating your tutorial, but I have yet to see you post of pic of the tattoo working on your character. Your just proving that you can add it to the Tattoo Palor's list. People get it to that point, but once they choose to get the tattoo it doesnt show up on the character....

I don't think editing the face is an option, because I want to make a teardrop tattoo. If I edit the face I'll have a teardrop tattoo on both sides. That would look really wack I guess.
Very cood tutorial btw.

EDIT: Maybe I could edit the eyepatch. Do you think taht would work?
