And here very small video about using OpenIV texture editor:
Original tutorial (not up-to-date).
People asks how to modify/import textures, so I decided to translate my italian tutorials for you.
Credits to me and my site GTA-Expert.it, do NOT copy this without my permission
Excuse me for my bad english, my english-to-italian is excellent, but my italian-to-english isn't so good, I'll translate my italian tutorials for you Hope screens could speak more than 1000 words
You could modify all .wtd textures in the game.
Don't confuse .wtd with .wdr files:
WTD [Windows Texture Dictionary] are textures files.
WDR [Windows (gtaDrawable)] are 3D model files.
w_mp5.wtd: MP5's Textures
w_mp5.wdr: MP5's 3D Model
you could edit/modify textures with OpenIV or SparkIV.
I think OpenIV is better , 'cause modifies textures levels to 1, so we have a better quality of the image in game. Anyway, ?ve made both tutorials for you.
Software & Downloads
- OpenIV Latest Version, viewer/editor for GTA IV Files.
- Photoshop or another graphics software.
First of all, extract OpenIV archive files and open "OpenIV.exe". Image.
Clicking on "File" > "Open Content", OpenIV will automatic load GTA IV Main Folder, loading all relative files. You could view all gerachy files and view some previews.
In this tutorial I'll modify Niko shoes with my Nike Air Max Plus.
We'll modify "feet_diff_001_a_uni.wtd" located in playerped.rpf (\Grand Theft Auto IV\pc\models\cdimages).
Find it like in the image:
Click on playerped.rpf to open the archive and show files.
There is a list of .wtd files. We know that in our tutorials we'll edit "feet_diff_001_a_uni.wtd".
BE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR FILES BEFORE EDITING ANY FILES!
You could backup "feet_diff_001_a_uni.wtd" clicking on "Edit" > "Extract".
Edit a texture
Select "feet_diff_001_a_uni.wtd" and right click on "Edit".
You'll have the textures files list on the left, in this case only feet_diff_001_a_uni.dss regular 7.
So, now you shoud have a .png file with your new texture.
Be sure that .png new file has same resolution (in our case: 256x256).
Click on "Replace" and load nike_squalo.png file.
IMPORTANT: Click on Change Levels and edit value to 1.
Now click on "
Save" and press enter when DOS Window will open.
IMPORTANT: To apply modifies, click on "File" > "Rebuild".
Close the program and launch GTA IV.
Hope this topic is helpful!
