Hey everybody, I'm writing once again because I'm having always trouble making the skins, portraits etc viewable. My problem is the asset.dat. I can't make it work for the RotWK. I've asked Ridder Bart (and thank him for it), but he gave me an answer concerning the bfme2, and I think that the problem is in the expansion. Can anybody help me?

ok, so first make a folder on your desktop called art
then in it make a folder called w3d in the w3d folder make a folder named by the first 2 letters of your model
for textures
in the art folder make a folder called compiledtextures in the compiledtextures make a folder named by the first 2 letters of your skin/texture, as for which extension the files need to be... i dont know
for models it's .w3d
for texture i just put dds AND tga...
after you put your stuff in the art...
drag the art from your desktop to your asset builder
then check the create asset.dat from files in list only
and save it somewhere...
it must be called asset.dat because else it wont work...
even capital letters musn't be used...
then import the asset.dat into your .big file
i like to name the asset.dat file data\asset.dat... in the .big file ofc

as for portraits for some reason they wont work for me :(
