  4. Color changing stone

    Hello eternal people, So, I got me a color changing stone ( ), and I am thinking of going Orchaness. Now I am human and I have custom human face. Does this effects changing color? Do I have to first remove my custom face, or it does not matter? I already got info on what happens if I cancel in the middle, apperantly one losses stone - that is not so great... But what happens if I choose orchan, and I do not like the charachter I made (not finish changing), can I go back and choose draegoni or something else? Thank you
  5. hey revi, i see you made an effort, thank you. I have no trouble saying thank you, but it goes like this: i ask, someone answers, I thank. I have even less trouble of saying f*!# you, that usually goes like this: i ask, someone is not understanding and doing something else, I f*!# i usually aim for one 'thing', but if they move... --- i have no trouble using github, what i am hoping is some help from people that already know custom --- I see some people answered here, but Aislinn did me no favour, or do you mean she is not using the 'power' that she is not to use anyway...?!? was it me or her stating the lie? --- I also do not understand where did i insult odie that there is such attack on this matter... if odie is insulted, i guess odie would say a thing or two... --- in this thread i said that odie has a one good server, and my bad, somewhere else i stated that he is usually a nica guy and gives feedback right after he uploads your meshes: http://www.eternal-lands.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=60010&p=587270 --- if you (plural) do not want to help, why pop up in thread? --- *Puts on human cape* if you help answer, you are not helping just me, but the comunity. and we here, in this thread know that there are at least two who know this, where is their help? *takes off human cape* please, keep your threats and spamming for yourself, i for one will be gratefull.
  6. Aislinn, you quoted quite well, i said IF, can you spot that two letters? that said, i see you are still in fog: "Sir Odie is doing everyone a favor and generously donating his server and time." - Aislinn. dear admin Aislinn, will you please correct this misstruth before you came again. I do not know some things, so i want to learn, why are you so afraid? bkc56, you are right on point, no matter how much we know and no metter if we set up 1000 servers, if client is not pointing to serves(s) our work won't gain nothing, khehe. and I was wondering about multi-servers, but I guess it would not be hard to sync them? even better, set up a web-page so players could simply upload, and all custom server's admins could easily pick files from there... again, but what IF aliens came and took sir odie back to their planet? How well are we prepared to pick up? I suppose VinoVeritas could do it, and for sure Aislinn, but she would want to hear something like "Aislinn is doing everybody a favour" khehehe... You, my dear admin, are not doing any favours to noone, it seems to me, khehehe for future reference, for you old farts and admins, i DID say sir odie has a good server, i did state he does get back quite fast. how came you missed that part...? please, stop your bitching and get out.
  7. oi oi, ok, let get you one at the time; Aislinn, having dedicated server for just unofficial custum clothes is probably stupid, i bet odie has that small zipped file on server that he uses for other stuff, unofficial custum clothing zip file is just a tiny little spec on that server... And he is doing noone favour, as i recall he gats el gc... And his quallity is easily surpassed... Darrook, you obviously can not read, this goes as well to Aislinn, I did get the answer on first part of my question, and I did my thanks, all of you others are just spamming in that first part, how about you stop and move on to my 2nd question? I am not saying we should/must/have to replace Sir_Odie, I do not know who gave you that idea, other that you misunderstood my question. Seems you are making a lot of noise, and i can imagine only one thing why... I am asking to put your knowladge here on unoficial custom clothing server setup, and maintenance and all that goes with it. Aislinn, you could, but i guess you wont. About reaching Sir-Odie VinoVeritas explained, I did thank him, what are you others spamming is beyond my knowledge... If you have some info, on how to set up server on custum, please, pour your love into this thread, but I guess you will keep on defending something no one is attacking, specially not me. please, stop spamming...
  8. well you are lucky old sods to have no trouble, i started this thread because people were camming back to me saying they can not reach him, or rather we did not know HOW to reach him. and this got me thinking, if he is away, maybe someone else more reachable should take up the job. i also see no reason, other that stated, that there should be more than one good server. that said, how well are we prepared to replace him? VinoVeritas, I suppose you could write it down, here on forum, could you not?
  9. eh, khm, it seems a problem reaching Odie...?
  10. oi oi VinoVeritas, thank you so much for this info, but this does not seem conveniant... How about that 2nd part of my post? Do you have any info on how to set up custum server? Thank you again for your input
  11. so i made some customs for el players, i told them to use Sir Odies service, and i just checked mercator for Sir: sir_odie was last seen online 55 Days 4 Hours 3 Minutes 33 Seconds ago Since his service apears to be the only one (http://el-wiki.net/Custom_clothes), could someone reach him? On the other hand, it seems poorly handled to have just one service, is there any info on setting custom server? -is it just folder structure, zipped? Thank you
  12. custom clothes how to

    oi hatwood, kjah, the title of thread is custom how to, and i also hoped that in one thread there should be all, a lot, or most of the stuff that WE know. i see no reason for openning another thread, this one shoud do nicely... if people mind reading i do not think you or i can make a button on which they can click and the custum will be made... if you desire so, you are free to do it, i think i gave all i have atm.
  13. custom clothes how to

    thank you hatwood all other inputs are welcome, as you put yours, and I hope more custom makers will step down from their throne and put their valuable knowladge into this thread. i am just sick of lack of info on custom, and nobody knows everything, but if we step together...
  14. custom clothes how to

    ok, let's get started To make custom clothing you need an Open Source application called Gimp, (it is not free as in free beer, but it is free as in Freedom of speech, so you can download it freely and install it, use it for any purpose you see fit). Also you will need a plugin for Gimp, the DDS extension. Gnu users can do the same, but if you compile Gimp make sure you use appropriate use flag for dds plugin. Also, to see any custom clothes, you have to opt-in custom clothes in Option panel in EL, and update it. Once you have Gimp installed it is time to understand the file structure: On Windows you have Eternal Lands installed in Program Files(x86)/Eternal Lands and the folder we are interested in is called meshes. In that folder there is a folder named meshes, and in it are stored pictures, called meshes. You do NOT want to change anything here, in fact, make a backup of that folder, in case you accidentally store your meshes there... The next folderS(!) of importance do not exist, you have to make them. In your Documents/Eternal Lands/ folder you should make a folder structure like so: custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/ Note that all folders are in lower cases! For gnu users, EL mesh folder is usually in /usr/share/games/eternal-lands/meshes if you used your distro packet manager, or if you downloaded installer script from EL website it is in the same folder you ran that script, and your working folder is in ~/.elc/ folder (here you make folders custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/) Next step is to COPY the mesh you want to change from: Program Files(x86)/Eternal Lands/meshes/mesh_you_want_to_change.dds to: Documents/Eternal Lands/custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/mesh_you_want_to_change.dds Gnu users from: /usr/share/games/eternal-lands/meshes/mesh_you_want_to_change.dds to: ~/.elc/custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/mesh_you_want_to_change.dds Now you have the file you can work on. Notice that this meshes will show only on your computer, to have other players see it you will have to use one of the services, which I will explain at the end. Now it is time to open Gimp and open copied file from: Documents/Eternal Lands/custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/mesh_you_want_to_change.dds As you open it, Gimp will ask you if you want to open mipmaps as well. Do NOT open mipmaps!!! We will work with just one layer for now. So here you make your changes to your clothes. If you added any extra layers, make sure you MERGE all layers before saving. When you are done, it is time to save it. You have to EXPORT file (so NO save), to your Documents/Eternal Lands/custom/player/your_toon_name/meshes/ folder First it will ask you if you want to overwrite, you choose yes. Than another panel appears where you set compression: none. Next, on same panel you HAVE TO choose TO generate mipmaps, this is important since not all people have latest graphic card, or they play on laptop, or have couple of alts running around, and they use Poor Man settings, and in this case EL will use those generated mipmaps. Every next save you can do just export, and it will save it with your choosed settings from above (you won't have to choose overwrite and mipmaps every export) To see your changes you have to enter/exit some door/map in EL. Here is a video of using Gimp, watch it in HD: Once you are satisfied with your product, it is time to make it available for other players to see. Go to Documents/Eternal Lands/custom/player/ and make a zip file of you_toon_name folder. Name it by your toon name, with lower cases: my_toon_name.zip Services that provide custom clothings can be found here: http://el-wiki.net/Custom_clothes Since there is only Sir_Odie's atm, let us go with that: Go to PL 212,63 and donate to Krosis 1000 gc You have to make your zip file available to Sir_Odie, either by uploading the file to some server and forwarding the link to him, or pm him and make necessary arrangements so he gets your zipped file. Usually Sir_Odie is nice and he gives feedback that he uploaded your files to server, but if he does not it does not matter, you have to UPDATE custom clothes in order to have it work for you. In fact, if someone does not see your new clothes they have to update their custom clothes. Now you can delete custom folder from your Documents/Eternal Lands/ folder. I believe that is it.
  15. custom clothes how to

    so you people do not understand, that is understandable, if you do not understand i can try a different angle: people that do custom, read on, others please do not read on; i needED of you to try out a mesh and came back to me, any mesh, and confirm that it works for you. is that simple? i need you to TRY and make a mesh. and if you are still reading, do not even bother trying, i got help from zil and made my mesh working...
