I am working on a small personal mod for me and a friend but i cant seem to get effects on my models. I added a forged blade effect to a model and export bone and geometry. Wwskinned it and linked it to the staff bone. 2 side normal. But when hes ingame i still see the black. i see the effect but the black as well! why? also i have see people with clear models. I would like to understand how you poeple did this? Thanks,

Well... I haven't worked with forged blades and the like yet (and thank you for reminding me that I have to do so). My first instict is to ask you if you did the whole material editor thing (hitting "m" in RenX) so you actually have a "skin" for the black stuff (looking at Elrond's model... his uses exlnzflar2). Don't know if this will help at all (or if you've already done it)... as I said, I haven't done this yet.

Thanks for the reminder though.

As for the "clear models" thing... I'm not exactly sure what you mean. Are you just elaborating off the forged blades effect problem, or is this a whole new can of beans?

Well, I just realised that the forged blades/flaming arrows/etc. is all wdump stuff. This isn't going to be fun :dry:.

EDIT: Oh look... 100 posts... I feel like such a spammer :blush: .

For the forged blades I would suggest reading the Wdump Tutorial. As for the clar models you cand do that by using an alpha channel on the skin.
