I've recently changed how undead males and females look (switched them around) by renaming the files in model.mpq and patch.mpq. Everything seems to work okay except I'm not sure on how I should edit the texture.mpq because the head areas of the models look pretty weird. I've made backups of the files in case, but if anyone could help me with this please let me know. Thanks :)

Okay, I'll go ahead and ask what is probably a "stupid" question. Why? Why swap the male and female graphics? Just because you can? Or?

Gamur 07-01-05 01:15 AM

Eh, I was bored and felt like doing something easy.. because I don't know how to do anything else lol.

Edit: And after playing an undead female for a long time I felt like playing around with a guy, plus I figured completely changing races would be too complicated

Cairenn 07-01-05 01:17 AM

Hey, good enough reason to my mind. ;)

Sometimes, "just because I can" can be a lot of fun. :)

Gamur 07-01-05 01:23 AM

Yup ;p but running around with half your neck missing and looking alil goofy is no fun :(

Cairenn 07-01-05 01:25 AM

Yeah, but you're undead! You've got more than just half your neck missing to worry about. ;) :D

Gamur 07-01-05 02:01 AM

I'm assuming you don't know how to fix this :confused:

Remelio 07-01-05 03:10 AM

Probably just need to do trial and error unless someone else has heard of someone doing something like this, you may be the first ;)

Beladona 07-01-05 09:28 AM

not the first. Maybe with undead, but others have done switches of textures, and even custom textures for things like mounts and such...

here is a file list for what you need. Be aware that the entries with ## after them reference a good 20-40 files each, so you may be in for renaming of over 100 textures...

model.mpq / patch.mpq

textures.mpq / patch.mpq

I've been running my game with no gnomes for a while now. The basic switch is easy, I just used night elf models and saved them as gnome male and female. The hard part comes when you modify the skins to look nice. I just used excel and listed all the night elf skin files in one column and the gnome in the other and matched them up to see which files would need to be copied. The last part is the hats...each race has its own head gear for certain items. Gnomes had GNF and GNM at the end of the name and Night Elves had NEF and NEM, once I copied these over the conversion was complete...NO GNOMES !

Here's the batch I created for female conversion for the basic skins...Put all night elf and all gnome files in the same directory ( too long to list, I'll shorten to show example)
