For some reason I can't seem to ''highlight'' or select a code in the hex editor. I am using the second recommended hex editor in the tutorial. (the one which doesn't require the user to buy the software even though it has a one month trial period).

It is different to the one DL uses (or so he states in his tutorial) and one major way is that I can't seem to be able to select a string of numbers at all. Im fact, instead of being grouped in fours (like in Dl's hex editor), the numbers or hex codes are grouped in twos... I can't seem to be able to select more than one pair of numbers at a time and even though i have windows, I can't copy and paste into notepad...

(oh and i can't, at the moment, get a different hex editor but I keen on skinning but need to put them ingame etc.

Thanks!
Sweet, sweet memories.

skinning tutorial video

the skinning tutorial is complicated
so if someone could make a video showing exactly what to do it would be extremely helpful.
thanks :D

I don't understand why you're having trouble. You just click on the data and drag. Or, you click on the data, hold shift and press down or pg down on the keyboard.

I'm a little confused. I looked in the two folders where there was any chance of the .bmp's showing up when I used convert CTT (at least thats how I think it's spelled). Also, I want a difinitive answer on how to make a part of a skin vanish (aka. carnotaur, baryonx, suchomimus, crestless dilopho.)

on photoshop use any selection tool to select the part you want to delete only, just delete everything that is selected with the background deleting rubber. it'll be shown in white and grey squares.
for deleting special colored parts like around the teeth do the same procedure just that under that selection use the magic wand to select everything except the teeth (normally the teeth will be always placed on a determined colored background, just select the background with the wand after selecting all with the free selection tool. then just use the background deleting rubber again and wala.
once you extract the dds on the convertercct there will be a second bmp called _opa wich means that what you see on opa with black color wont be seen in the game o.o i hope i was clear pm me in case you dont understand xD

You have yo download alot of stuff and use it. It isnt a thing on the web... Its in the first post.

How come when I copy and paste the HEX code of my skin (Its a DDS) into the TML, the skin is still the same as the original?

Might be because you made it the dead skin.

It's a shame more people aren't into modding this game. I'm sure someone with knowhow could create a program that would do this with little effort :(


I JUST started skinning and was hoping that you or someone else could give me a bit more "step by step" way to get texture.
Because a dinosaur with no texture would just be Far too smooth :facepalm:
