I know that everybody want to see every side of Darkel and play with him. Theres one way to do this!!! The most interesting thing is that Darkel's textures and model are in GTA3.IMG !!!! You can extract them and rename in player.dff and player.txd!
Than replace them with the original player files (dont forget the player.txd in txd.img too) ! And finaly delete the file models\generic\player.bmp and delete the files in da "skins" folder! Enter in the game! Dont worry if you see in the "player setup menu" that Darkel is white (without textures)!! When you start playing he will be with textures!

Enjoy!

I'm glad this isn't another "How can I play the Darkel missions in GTA3?" question.

For the topic, you can also play as the Pakistani taxi driver this way, you can't get him using the random costume cheat, for whatever reason R* disabled the costume. A gang uniform is always fun though - you can dress up as a Diablo or Triad and walk around the Mafia in Saint Marks at the start of the game, and they don't shoot at you!

Yes, I know that! Now I play with the Red Nines skin!

Can somebody help me please? I dont really get what you wanted to say, so if somebody could give me very detailed step to step instruction, I will be very grateful. As I got it, I need to open gta3.img, from there extract darkel skin and darkel model. from then on im lost.

EDIT: Forget it. I got a friend help me with it, now i know how to do it. P.S. Urgh, Darkel is so ugly! I think Im going to have nightmares...

Not practically, no, because that would require a modded PS2, an IMG editor that can read and edit the PS2 files, and at least one DVD burnt with the modded game on it.

You're much better off working with the PC version if you're into modding.

Ever wondered about the colour differences between the two? The weapon display is a noticeable greyish yellow on the PS2, but a mid yellow on the PC. The screen resolution is a bit different too - the PC seems to have the bottom area cut off a bit (probably NTSC vs PAL standards again, like 640x480 vs 640x512).

I can't get this to work.
I do all the things you said, but the Darkel model just appears with the default player skin and is all messed up.

Are you sure that you have erased the contain of the "skins" folder and deleted models\generic\player.bmp ? If you have done that check do you have replaced the texture in txd.img too !!! it's very important!

First of all, this is not the modding section.

Secondly, do NOT take stef_92's advice. The proper way to modify GTA3 is to make all your model and textures changes in gta3.img. IF you have a txd.img and txd.dir, you should then delete them and let the game repopulate them with the appropriate textures.

Yes! I agree with you! I know that! I just tell him to replace the texture AND in txd.img TOO because I dont want make him to delete the whole file! But if he want - let delete it! It's better to delete, but I just dont want to complicate him.

Teaching people the right way spares them the complication of mismatched textures later on down the road.

an IMG editor that can read and edit the PS2 files

Does that editor exists? I'm really into modifying a ps2 San Andreas. I dont mind if I spend a lot of dvds...
PS: I have a modified ps2

What is that supposed to mean?

By the way this topic is just confusing me, What are you trying to achieve the methods are wrong to start with hence the broken textures.

Also what is the point of restoring Darkel into the game. Finally, why don't you use the modding forum for this in future.

Because I posted that at the first day I registred myself in this forum and I still hadn't knew the rules! So I think that there's nothing more to discus here!

Why do people say things like "I was new" as if it exempts them? I watched this place for weeks before registering and read the rules before joining. IIRC, the registration process actually tells you to do so. Either way, somebody with respect for the place will make an effort to do this for themselves.

I'm trying to make a mission mod that uses the Darkel skin, and I would really like a step-by-step instruction of how to get the Darkel skin, because the words "access the txd.exe skin folder" are just garblemesh to me. whatsthat.gif
