Much easier way to manage attachments. Give me a minute. I'll look at it.

Well, Curt.
Thing is, when you perform an edit of any kind, it must be saved as a unique name.
By uploading your version, it would overwrite the original colorscheme of the model that already is up on the swap pages.
Your .rfx also contains a single .TGA.
Your .dds files did not carry over.
Listen to the guys, you must include .TGA for the Basic difusse, Normals and specular maps (3 in total)

I got an error when I chose your colorscheme. Ended RF. Let me see why, or if I can get around it.

You only need the base .tga. You don't need the _N or _S. (But they do make the model look so much better.)

It is a different filename. It has a 2 in it.

Hey guys, I DO very much appreciate your time... but at this point, I'm doing nothing more than wasting your time and i apologize for that.

I'll just have to keep the file for personal use....

Thanks SO much again for your time.

The name is different, but the scheme is the same. Should this be like the picture you posted before? It's not.

I'm going to repaint the TGA file using ONLY Corel X5. This way when i'm done, I can save in the SAME format so I don't lose any of my effects such as clear canopy etc.

I'll keep trying and will eventually get it right...

Yes, I opened up the glider, renamed it. Then selected the new colors and created a dds... then found the TGA file... edited it (quickly and simple)... saved the repaint and didn't lose my effects (window etc).

So now I just have to repaint the whole thing. I can save it without losing the specular effects (is that the right word?)... so I'll be back once the paint's done...

Thanks

Opened up the glider and renamed it? I'm not following.

The specular effects could be tied to the striping pattern on the original scheme. You may not want to reuse it.

I selected the original glider from inside the game. I opened up save colorscheme and renamed it (in RF). Then I selected it and it created a DDS. Then I went into Windows Explorer and found the TGF file created (the repaint). I opened it from that location colorscheme... then I'll edit it and save it in the same formate it was taken from the color scheme folder. No effects should be lost (they won't, I already tested it with a quick simple paint)

I'll have to figure out how to upload it later, but at least now by eliminating the one program, my file won't be corrupt.

I think you're still not doing it right. Start here. Name it something unique. Find that file and edit it.
