ok i am trying to change the color of the grill of american 4 to black but whenever i color the texture to black and start the game it erases the black and turns purple as if there is no texture at all and when i say erase i mean i check it after it turns purple ingame, i use breckfest to convert it back to .png see what happened it turns out to be white when i clearly colored it black its starting to piss me off >:(

Grill turn purple means it not finding the texture. How fix, I'll let the skinner guys tell ya, since I don't know how.



I forget why my tires turned purple-pink with my first try at making a custom skin.

Did you name your file windows_c5.tga when you saved after editing? Then put it thru build_asset to make bmap?

Saving under the final filename before conversion worked for me.  8)

I put an aiming reticle on the windshield of the 40 ford for a custom skin concept.  ;D

Edit: Just saw that you're using breckfest. I use Bugbear's tools to convert between .tga (targa) and .bmap.
breckfest might be swapping color and alpha channels in your .png file.
