i was trying to create marty bodyguards by playing around with pga.txd and player.dff following instructions in the topic "easy way to play as doc and marty", although obviously something went
the only good thing (i think) about this is that i accidently seemd to have found away to have the marty skin have an open jacket on the front, but not have it on the back. i think it has something to do with alpha and bitmap textures....
anyway thought it looked funny and if anyone know how to fix it, i.e return marty to normal and have marty bodyguards, that would be very helpful thanks!!!

Aug 5 2007, 8:57pm Anchor

probably a txd error. Check there.

Wait, you did replace both dff and txd, right?

i changed the pga.txd to the marty skin, then renamed pga.dff to got quite any of that right?

Edited by: danlovesbttfmost

Aug 5 2007, 9:30pm Anchor

you didn't do any name changing within the txd, right?

Aug 5 2007, 9:49pm Anchor

um, i might have made a pga-old.txd file, to back it up, but other than that just .dff files.

Aug 5 2007, 10:09pm Anchor

dunno, retry?

Aug 6 2007, 5:22am Anchor

ok thanks, just to clarify...
1) change texture of pga.txd to doc/marty (by opening up pga.txd in workshop, replacing image of bodyguard with bitmap skin of doc/marty only (so do not import alpha texture)
2) make a copy of player.dff (from exporting it), rename the copy of the player.dff to "pga.dff" and add to archive
3) rename the original pga. dff file to something like pga-old.dff so there is only one in archive
4) hit rebuild archive and close

Aug 10 2007, 2:52pm Anchor

If your bodyguards look like ghosts, try to replace pga.txd also in the txd.img file....It works for the cars, so why not for this....

Aug 10 2007, 2:57pm Anchor
