I am having some trouble modding my weapons. I am trying to change the skins of the weapons with img tool but thats not working very well. I never messed up but this is what happened. user posted image user posted image user posted image
I don't know whats going on at all. I never messed up on the img tool. i replaced what i was suppose to replace. Funny thing is that sometimes 1 weapon might change back to normal but the rest are still ruined. Can someone tell me why this is happening and how i can fix it?

This happens to me a lot. I'm not sure why it does it only sometimes, but it's really annoying.
The easiest thing I found to do is to just delete the .dff files for the weapons that are messed up and then add a new one into the .img file.
I hope that helps solve your problem.

LOL @ your puzzlement. Rebuild the IMG. Everytime you replace files, Always rebuild. If you use GTAGarage you must STILL rebuild.

I use Spark for my .img editing. It allows you to click-n-drag the files and doesn't need to rebuild the .img.
IMO it's way faster and more reliable than IMGtool.

Spark did not Rebuild Archive, which is what you need. monocle.gif
