Hello,

I want to make a fence-like texture.



So it needs be partially see through. How do I do that? Which freeware is out there to create partially see through textures?

I know about wally and about having to multiply the width and height by 16 and where to place the files.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings,

Colin

All you need to do is:

Put blue (or another color) in for the transparency, just like the fence.

Then make sure your blue color is number 255 in the palette. (You can use the tools in Wally to rearrange the palette.)

And make sure to name your texture with a { at the front.

After that, you need to do the usual in Hammer, setting the entity to Solid / 255.

The texture shows up blue in-game. I dl'ed an fence example RMF and applied my texture {C1A3WALL07A to the fences brush to make sure I wouldn't make a mistake. I used blue 255.

This is the texture:

Do you have any idea what I could have done wrong? Does my image need to be a special type of bmp (other than 24-bits)?

Greetings,

Colin

Are you not posting because you think all I have to do is what you posted previously? Because your solution didn't work...

Colin, can you do it with one of the standard partially see through textures?

If you can, there's something wrong with your texture, or it's been inserted wrong, or it's just a bug.
Today's post brought to you by the letter: "heck".

I need an 8-bit image. Don't know how to create one though. Mspaint only produces 24-bit images.

You can do it with MSpaint like this:
Save your picture as a 256 colour bitmap.
In the Save As Dialogue box, open the Drop Down menu that's next to Save As Type...
and select 256 colour bitmap.

does this help?

Whenever I load 256 colored bmp's they show up black in Wally (even extracted 256 colored bmp's like {fence.bmp)
