[TUT] Modding guide for Linux

1 post in this topic



This method works on Windows and All linux Distros.

For Windows, Google 'python 2.7 download' and download it

insted of the terminal command. Every other step will work just fine.


This tutorial will show you how to replace textures in NMRIH with your own. (Mod)


----What you will need----

https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=reader.py, python 2.7 (3 sucks)


----The How to----

1) You will need a Graphic to start with.

Either make, or google a picture that is 600x600 or 1024x1024 etc...

Preferably a .PNG

2) You will need to locate your NMRIH data for steam.

Right click on NMRIH on your steam library and go to

'Proporties' > 'Local Files' > 'Browse local files' > 'nmrih' then copy the file 'nmrih_dir.vpk'

and paste into a folder on your desktop.

3) Get Python 2.7 (run 'sudo apt-get install python' in the terminal) then make a .py file in that folder

with 'nmrih_dir.vpk' and paste the code from

https://www.dropbox.com/home?preview=reader.py in that file or download it.

Just get it into that folder. Then right click in that folder and select 'open terminal here'

and run 'python reader.py' then let it unpack it.

4) Go to http://tfsprays.com/ and load your picture and press 'Spray!'

This will turn your pic into a VTF file. What we need. Download the '.vtf'

file and place in the folder we made.

5) Go to your unpacked folder named 'vpk_extracted' and find the

'v_fa_1911_d.vtf' and 'w_fa_1911_d.vtf' for example purposes.

They might have some slur of BS behind it, like

Unfortuatly, I cant fix that. But you now have what you need. -Congrats!!

6) Go to your NMRIH data, then 'custom' and it is you skim thought the 'readme.txt'

to get some idea of what that folder is for. Now, inside that make your name for your mod,

and make a folder with that name. For now, we will call it 'mod'. Inside that folder, make another

called 'materials' (inside make) > 'models' > 'weapons' > 'fa_1911' then paste

'v_fa_1911_d.vtf' and 'w_fa_1911_d.vtf'. Grab that pic of yours in '.vtf' format and

copy it twice. Now rename both of your pics with the 'v_fa_1911_d.vtf' and 'w_fa_1911_d.vtf'

and get rid of the actual files. (Basicly replace them).

7) And launch NMRIH and create a server with the map 'isolated' (My FAV) and go upstairs

and look on top of the TV. Say hello to YOUR 1911!



If you want to share your skin with a friend, just copy the mod folder you made that contains

the files. Send it to them, and tell them to put it the 'custom' folder. Done.


Thanks for using my tutorial! I found this method ALL by myself.

Happy modding!
