using model transparency on other mods

05-11-2003, 06:01 PM
hmm.... so would i be able to decompile... say NS models and make some parts 0,0,255 Blue and recompile them with the new studiomdl.exe, and would those parts be transparent in NS? or does that have to do with the main code of the game? im bored and messing with models is fun.

you can use the new transparent models in any mod (DOD1.0 updates your sw.dll and hw.dll files)

Transparencies will work in other mods for people who have DoD 1.0. At least in theory. I haven't seen it done yet, but the updated DLL files blender pointed out could probably do it.

They should work as long as the user has those two .dlls.

Don't forget to add the lines to the QC, also. Be sure to come back and say it it works for sure, so we have more than just theories to go on.

There's a thread in the NS models forums that shows model transparency (and additive blending) in action. Over here (
