Anyone know a step-by-step kit tutorial?


Recommended Posts

I just tried to make a Dragunov/MP5-SD kit. After going to the trouble of making what I thought was a working kit icon (this tutorial was what I used) and copying the layout of NMMGR weapons mod, these were the results:

First time I ran it, GR crashed. Second time, I got it to work but no kit texture, and the MP5 was acting weird and caused a crash when I tried to use it.

Basically, the questions I want to ask (I know, I've done nothing but ask questions since I came here :unsure: ) are:

- Is there a tutorial that goes through making a weapons mod from start to finish?

- Is the kit icon I used for real? Because it seemed to me that GR didn't like the resulting file format...

making kits is easy as pie, use IGOR. and remember to "clear" items.

as for the kit icons, it took me a long time to learn how to make them now I make them very easily.

give me your email and I can send some screen shots and samples to you so you can make what you need.

@Shadow, here's what I learned from my modding expirience; the best (and easiest ) way to make a working kit is trough notepad or any other text editor.

Here's what you have to do;

1) copy any kit..could even be one from GR.

2) paste it into your mod's kit folder.

3) rename it to what you want your kit to be called.

4) open it with notepad and change entries acording to what you want it to be.

in your case, here's what I would do:

take "astra_galinski-01.kit"..here it is, in green:

<KitFile>

<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>

<KitTexture>kit_galinsky-01.rsb</VersionNumber>

<Firearm SlotNumber = "0">

<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>

<ItemFileName>dragunov.gun</ItemFileName>

<MagazineCount>10</MagazineCount>

</Firearm>

<Firearm SlotNumber = "1">

<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>

<ItemFileName>m9.gun</ItemFileName>

<MagazineCount>5</MagazineCount>

</Firearm>

</KitFile>

and change the entries to something like below; (changes in red)

<KitFile>

<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>

<KitTexture>kit_dragunov_mp5sd.rsb</VersionNumber>

<Firearm SlotNumber = "0">

<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>

<ItemFileName>dragunov.gun</ItemFileName>

<MagazineCount>10</MagazineCount>

</Firearm>

<Firearm SlotNumber = "1">

<VersionNumber>1.000000</VersionNumber>

<ItemFileName>mp5sd.gun</ItemFileName>

<MagazineCount>5</MagazineCount>

</Firearm>

</KitFile>

Note a few things; make sure you name your kit icon .rsb to the same name as the entry in your kit file, and name your gun file to the same name as the entry in your kit file. Change the number of magazines to what you like.

IMHO, Igor is known to be buggy as far as kit.files go...either your kit won't work, or your kit.icon won't work..or you get CTD...you get the picture. This way, you have total control over your kit.file layout.

If you need, say, primary wep plus ammo or hand held item, pick and copy some simmilar kit, than change the copy to what you want..

Hope this helps.
