Are you troubled? Do you want to make better Gmod SWEPs by having better models? Well look no further! I learned from Heavy-D and I am Ready to pass it on to you!
STEP 1:First download this program, it is a hex editor
Make a new folder on your desktop and call it “XV132” and extract all files from the download link above into the folder
STEP 2: Find a download! For the sake of this tutorial I have posted an example link below. Remember to always make sure that skins you download are always for either CSS or DOD/DODS because those games use the correct files to port to GMod.
Download this file and drag the models,materials, and sound folders onto your desktop.
STEP 3: Now go to your XV132 Folder, and find the APPLICATAION called “XV132” Run it
You should see a little program start up, on the upper left, click on open, and open the models folder.
You should see all the model files, find the V and W .mdl files. In this case the two files we need to edit are “v_rif_galil.mdl” and “w_rif_galil.mdl”
Open the “v_rif_galil.mdl” file. You should see a bunch of numbers on the left side, and some words on the right. At the top right find where it says “v_rif_galil”
Edit that to a different name of the EXACT SAME AMOUNT OF WORDS <—thats important!
For example, rename it - “v_rif_aksmu”
Save the file, then do the same thing with the “w_rif_galil” file. Save it.
STEP 4: Editing your materials folder
If the materials files you are trying to upload say “file already exists in cloud” You need to change the folder path.
In this case the folder path is - materials>models>weapons>v_models>aks74u
If it says the file already exists, change it to something else with the same words. For example:
Once you are done with this, open the hex editor again.
Open the .mdl files, and scroll down to the very bottom. You should see that it shows what the old materials file path was. Change it to the new one! Now you should be done!
STEP 5: Upload to Toybox!
You are now done! Send the materials, models, and sound folders to .zip files and upload them to the cloud!
NOTES: If your textures are pink and black, you made a mistake editing the materials path. Trust me this happens with me alot, it happens.
I’m not going to teach you how to lua code, thats a whole nother mountain brother.
THANK YOU ALL!!
