The RSH:

As you can see by the architecture of the rsh...

it will be these two chunks we need. to either save and load the chunks or copy and paste. :P Into the whm of course above the other SSHR textures.

chunk'd into the whm:

when copied across into the whm either via chunk or the good old copy and paste chunk method.
As can be easily seen the two chunks in above the sshr in the whm. :P

SHDR Work:

Naming conventions:

The internalized SHDR must have the name for the MSGR/MSLC-Data to link too. :P

Internal address work:

the 1st chunk contains the address of the TXTR that it calls on.
textures_share addition into the name with the name of the shdr at the end.

TXTR work:
User Posted Image

The TXTR's name must be the address of the texture with the exception of the textures_share addition into the name with the name of the shdr at the end.

Linking it to the MSGR/MSLC-Data:

The MSGR/MSLC-Data must contain the name of the SHDR you want the texture to apply to the UV.

All done and should work internally without any issues.
First issue will always be typos. :P

this is designed for non team colour things like the daemons as the example.
I do not know if there is a way to do wtp work like this. But I think not.
Haven't confirmed if the wtp works if the texture is applied this way.

Something about DOW II. :P

What did I miss?
