Sounds good!

 

I've did it in almost the same manner, but I decided to use folders and filelists.

 

This is my folderstructure:

 

 

->Alderney (Manhattan)  ->manhat05     ->manhat05.xls  ->manhat06     ->manhat06.xls     ->mh06_p_txd        ->dev        ->final        ->orig  ->manhat...->Broker (Brooklyn)  ->...

 

 

And the *.xls-files are lists of all models/textures that contains in this archive, where I can color each texture-/model-file in red (untouched), yellow (W.I.P) & green (final).

Check manhat09.img... there are some files starting with "esb_"... try 'em smile.gif

 

If don't know where u can find a special texture:

- Start GTA

- Go to the object u want to retexture

- Press ESC to open the map

- Take a screenshot to remember the location

- Exit/minimize the game

- Open the map located on the bottom of the first post u see here: http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=474215&hl=gims

- Find the location u chose ingame, by the help of the screenshot that u took

- There u can find a text on the map (e.g. for the empire state building it is "manhat09_5")

- Now u know in which *.img-file u have to look for it (in that case = manhat09.img)

 

Thats the way i do this... I don't know if there's a better and easier way...

After i read a lot about iCEnhance and playing around with Open IV and Photoshop, I want to overhaul the Interior exspecially Romans Taxi Office, Vlad's Bar and the different player homes etc. I already found Romans Mansion, but i can't find the outdoor part of the house. Can somebody tell me the exact position in Open IV / Spark IV.

 

I have the same problem with Roman's Office, i already found the interior but not the exterior.

 

EDIT: OK thanks, the link helps: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18649105/wbn-map.jpg

@Darecki: Yes! And I'm just trying to edit the textures/shader to add new normalmaps... I hope it'll work smile.gif

 

//Edit: YAY! It works! I exaggerated a bit, but its just a test... look at that kerb... smile.gif

@Benny_ Did you add "new" normals, or did you edit existing normals? I can not imagine how a game could detect a normal and knows how to use it.

@Baender: Yes, I added new ones and "intergrate" them in the shader, so it works the same as the diffuse map. I'm just testing around. wink.gif

 

@ice: Thanks man smile.gif!

Steady on cool.gif... ur doing a great job! Can't wait to see new peds and ICEnhancer 1.2.5... icon14.gifwink.gif

Who's interested... I've wrote a How-To... smile.gif

 

I hope my english is good enough for that... biggrin.gif

 

 

HOW-TO CHANGE THE SHADER OF EVERY TEXTURE WITH OPENIV (TO ADD NORMALMAP ETC.)

 

At first, you need to know the name of the texture you want to change. Than you have to find the *.wdr-file (Modelfile, NOT Texturefile) in OpenIV of that object with the texture you want to edit. RMC on it than “save content/export” and save it anywhere on your harddrive.

 

Now you have a *.odr-file in the destination folder that we want to edit.

 

Open it. It looks like this:

I want to edit the texture “nj01_kerb2.png”.

So I look for it in that file.

 

This is the line I found:

user posted image

 

The first (“gta_default.sps”) is the shader, which is currently used for it.

 

Change it like this:

user posted image

 

As you can see, I changed the shader to “gta_normal.sps” (You can use every shader... you find them in your common/shader/.. folder.) to activate normalmapping for this texture.  The first digits behind the filename are the specularFactor (higher = more glossy), the second is the specularColorFactor (I don’t know…), the third is the bumpiness (higher = more bump) and at the end of this line is the filename that we use for the normalmap we want to apply. (You can use any filename)

 

Save the changes.

 

Now create a Normalmap and put it in the same folder with the filename you choose in the *.odr-file. (in this case it is nj01_kerb2_n.png)

 

Go into OpenIV, open the right *.img-archive and select New -> Import openFormats -> Multiple Import. Than select the *.odr-file. All files mentioned in it will be automatically imported.

 

Thats it!

Benny, you can read my minds. Exactly what would have been my next question: How do I add normals to textures.
