States/Overlays and Colorshift

Post by Darkquake » Mon Apr 23, 2018 1:53 pm

So the goal is to coloshift an over lay specifically fullsetgeneric which uses AuraFanatic.dcc, thing is no matter where I change values in either Overlays.txt or States.txt nothing happens. Is it hardcoded? Do I need to go manually edit each frame and repack it into a dcc and use that, or is there just something I'm missing and colorshift actually works?

Edit The knowledge base doesn't mention what is/isn't hardcoded and doesn't go in depth about the color columns. I'm asking for 1.13d if it matters.

Downloaded, trying it out now. Thank you very much!

Edit: I did it all, change colors, make the overlay and state put it on an item I have to test and it crashes the game lol. Halt Location line1646. Expression Unrecoverable internal error 6fe1fe5c.

SixDice has a bad habit of corrupting dcc files on save. You can fix that opening the corrupted file in an other tool and just save it.

I don't remember the name ofthe tool I use for this, I will tell you here once I'm at home by editing this message.

There's a trick with SixDice to make recolored DCC's work. You make your recolor, save, then click on "Export Series". After that, you export your frames into a dummy folder. In the end, select "new" in SixDice and then "Import Series". Re-import your recolored frames and save.

Eh, I diden't know that.

I personnaly just open the saved file with DCxTool, then save it with it, without doing anyting. It just work after doing so :)

I tried both methods and they both work perfectly now with no crashes in game. :)
