Big thanks to Stre1itzia on YouTube for the instructions on getting TexMod and ReShade to work with this game.

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb is a fantastic game. The gameplay perfectly captures the feeling of being Indiana Jones, in ways that no other game in the series has even come close to capturing. Unfortunately, the textures hadn't received anywhere near as much care as the fighting mechanics did. It looked like the game's texture artists just grabbed some random carpentry clothes, plus a contemporary Dorfman hat and Wested jacket, scanned them, and called it a day. For the discerning fan, this can sometimes make it feel more like you're playing as a generic safari man, rather than Indiana Jones.

But not anymore.

Now, Indy's textures have been recolored by referencing pictures of actual screen-accurate Indy Gear. The colors of each gear piece were then level-adjusted so that the color relationships between each gear piece falls perfectly in line with the movies. And when viewed in-game, the lighting can play a big part in how the gear looks to the eye... Exactly like the gear in the movies!

The shirt is light khaki, but can sometimes look stone white.
The pants are "Officer's Pinks" khaki, but can look a lighter khaki, a saturated pebble brown, and even light gray!
The boots are a carmelly medium brown, but can look a much darker brown as well.

The gear displays all of these characteristics in the movies, and with this mod, they'll have these characteristics in Emperor's Tomb as well!

Notes:
---Across the movies, a few gear pieces drastically change color. The most significant of these is the gun holster, which went from a medium brown in Raiders to a dark brown in Temple Of Doom onwards. The natural tan whips used in filming also darkened with age as the series went on, and in Last Crusade and Crystal Skull the web belt was a light khaki. I offer the mod with variations for all three movie styles.

---Indy's professor suit is given some TLC in this mod as well. The original textures made the suit look very mismatched, with a greyish-brown jacket paired with a black vest and brown pants. The mod fixes this so that the vest and pants match the jacket in-game, and it looks just like the three-piece suits he wears in the movies.


---V2 of the mod is now available. In addition to a few minor improvements to Indy's Gear, I've also added the following new textures:

The Hat/Whip stand in the College Classroom, updated to Indy Gear spec like the rest of the gear textures.

Liquor Bottles now have visible wine inside, presented as best as a static texture can present them.

The Shotgun, Luger, MP-40, and Mauser are all given a blued look to them, with a slight warm overcast to keep them looking filmic.

The MP-40 Ammo pouch now has leather straps, as the genuine article does.

New Crosshair made from scratch, created at 33x33 initially, then recreated at 99x99, then centered in a 133x99 canvas to counteract the stretching present in the widescreen mod.

The Nazi Afrika Korps and Officer uniforms are recolored and altered to better match their appearance in Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Last Crusade.

The Turkish Grunts and Palace Guards are recolored to more closely resemble their depictions in their original concept art.


---V2.1 of the mod is now available. There are a few more tweaks to Indy's Gear, including toning down the highlights on Indy's pants, darkening the hat and boots a little bit, and recoloring the Temple/Crusade holster to be a bit browner. The Nazi Officer uniform had previously been overcorrected, resulting in a very warm gray color; now the colors for the uniform were redone referencing a screen-used Last Crusade uniform, and now come off much more accurately.


---V2.2 of the mod is now available. Temple of Doom Web Belt recolored to actually match the on-screen ToD Web Belt. Recolored Indy's MkVII bag to a warmer green color and the Belt Buckle to a less orangey gold.


---V2.3 of the mod is now available.

General:
-New accurate Indy hat and jacket color based on my Steele & Jones hat and jacket. In certain lighting conditions the hat can look darker than the jacket.
-Slight desaturation for the Temple of Doom/Crusade whips.
-Newly added recolors for both Indy's Canteen and the Large Canteen to more closely match the items they were based on: the British Mk VII Water Bottle with P37 Skeleton webbing, and a 2-quart western round canteen, respectively.
-New Bag Strap/Gunbelt color to match the mod's Temple of Doom holster.
-Slightly darkened Indy's boots. Screen-Accurate Moc-Toe pattern added.

Raiders:
-Tinted the Raiders holster slightly towards Cyan to make it less reddish and more brown.

Crusade:
-Crusade variant now alters both the revolver and the leather straps, the former to mimic the gray-handled Webley WG that Indy carries in Last Crusade and Crystal Skull, and the latter to resemble the bag strap and "stunt" gunbelt seen in the Petra publicity photos from Last Crusade.
-Major reworking for the Crusade Web Belt (which looks much better now!) plus a new alternate Crusade variant with the slightly darker Crystal Skull web belt. (Remember that Indy never had a single jacket-off scene in Last Crusade like he did in the other three movies. The Crystal Skull Web Belt variant is there for the sake of making sure the web belt color for the Crusade variant looks good with both the jacket-on and jacket off versions of the model)

Non-Indy:
-A few improvements to the Afrika Corps uniform's khaki parts. It now gives off the appearance that if you removed the jacket, the shirt and pants would be the same color, like you usually see in Raiders.
-Added recolor for Grenade to make it more accurate to the Model 24 Stielhandgranate it was based on.
-Added recolor for Thompson to make it more accurate to the blued finish of the M1928 Thompson it was based on.
-Added recolor for Turkish Knife to make it more accurate to the original concept art.
-More alterations for the Palace Guard.

This is really cool. What program did you use to make your tweaks?

I used TexMod to extract and replace the textures. Although, I appear to be having a little bit of trouble getting TexMod to work with Emperor's Tomb on a native Windows 10 PC. Support for this mod is going to have to be delayed until I get things under control again.

Thank you for doing this, but i'm more glad people even REMEMBER this game, let alone make mods of it.
