Hi

I know there are loads of genuises out there who can do this.......EASY PEASY!!!!

I would like somebody to do me a big fat favour...Lara Croft with the TR5 Camo outfit trousers, but with the TR4 body. So like half of her is TR4 Lara body and the bottom half is TR5 Camo Lara legs.

I just want the trousers - I have the camo outfit and have tried re-texturing however, her chest is different to that used in TR4 - more triangular shapes - makes it hard to work with!!!

So any help would be greatly appreciated ASAP!!!

Thanks

John (Moose562)

You mean like this:

It's has a custom bellbotttom mesh, but originally that pants were from TRC Cameo.

This is a modified version of Tijay's "Research Centre" level outfit.

I can modify that outfit to give Lara a normal head and a ponytail. Would be what you want?

I'll try to find it on my hd. I have so many wads. All of them named strangely, so i have no idea what it is.

But i'll try to find it.

thats great Larz, but the thing is, I have real trouble trying to re-texture her breasts and that whole area with that mesh...with the original textures. I want to have a normal old fashioned Lara top but with the tr5 trousers...

its tricky! has anyone got this Lara? lol

Get TRwest (from the TRLE faq thread)

Load research.tr4 as a reference file

extract (add) Lara_Skin, Lara_Skin_Joints, Hair, and Lara_Scream

save the new wad as filename.was

remember to save always with the extension .was at the end, otherwise TRwest will crash.

Get TRviewer

Open the .tr4 level file with a normal head

Find Lara_Skin, collaspe it, find Lara's head mesh

Right click on it, select "export as .trmsh"

---------------

Open the level file with the Research Centre outfit

Collapse Lara_Skin (click on the little x) find Lara's head mesh

right click, select "import trmsh"

Import the normal head

Save the .tr4

------------

You can now make a wad from this .tr4 so you have that outfit with a normal ponytail


I hope this was helpful.

TRviewer is very useful for fixing a corrupt WAD.

because it makes changes directly to the .tr4. I use it to troubleshoot, when my outfits cause the wad to corrupt.

Isn't it saved as teenagertemp or something? When you sent it to me that's what it was. :)
