I removed the melee weapons from the dakkafex which makes it look ok in the OE but results in a pink box ingame. How to I change the mesh without getting a pink box?

OOF

In OE,go to animations and delete all red fodlers that say ''XREF ERROR!''.

Then save.

Ok its no longer a pink box but its still missing the devourers in game. I had hoped that deleting unnecessary meshs would solve the skinbatching issue but that didn't work.

It does not work like that.

You have to detach parts from the main skinned mesh and reskin them accordingly.

Does that mean I'd have to make new textures? I'm no good at drawing.

Nope.
Just cut the bigger mesh into smaller ones.
For example.
You have a full body.
Cut it into arms,legs,torso,etc.
And skin accordingly.

Not only it is easier to render but also easier to skin!
The texture map remains as is.Nothing is changed.
You go to editable mesh,select the parts and click detach.

Its already divided like that, always has been. Every mesh is a single element.

OE's debug window says the poly count is too high, does that mean its a single mesh that has to many polys or the whole model does? I guess I only have to split the highest poly mesh on the model.

Where is the code for UA's relic resource? I can't find any file that has it.

That's Taskbar coding ...

You mean the AE part? If yes, then just look into one of the researches that increase it, and see what modifiers are involved.

I just learned that steam users are on version v1.3 of dark crusade. Are mods made for 1.2 compatible with the steam version? I thought we had to mod with the cd version because steam uses different file paths.

They'll work fine. The difference with the Steam versions is that they have had the old Gamespy multiplayer stuff ripped out and replaced with Steamworks. They also disabled LAN play as well, which is annoying as hell. No other changes that I'm aware of - nothing that will affect mods anyway.

I just discovered that the predator_codex model that I edited is missing a bunch of animations in max and OE. And yet those missing animations still work ingame. How is that possible? I'm very confused. Can the game get missing animations from the vanilla predator and use them with the codex model? I can't think of any other way it could happen.

XREF from the vanilla model.

Some models do that.

And you can too in OE if you have a vanilla model already converted.

I've been using the objective points mod in my mod but I can't figure out why the imperial guard banner is pink on the back side.

-Which version of the OP mod?

-Have you modified the ig_strategicpointflag texture in any way?
