Scratched Black and Red Axe

Handsome Dan's Scratched Axe RELEASE NOTES ***V2*** Black motion trails have finally been added to the Black version of the Axe. Very special thanks to AWSM for finding the fix. This is a quick reskin of the original Axe with your choice of Black and Red. Added some color adjustments and more scratching to make the axe look used. INSTALL Place the VPK's into your Addons Folder "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2\addons" Note, you must choose to turn on either the Red or Black, not both at the same time. As of 12/30/09 the VPK method is disabled in Realism Mode... Not sure why Valve did this, so if you want to play Realism with this skin, follow the instructions below. 1. Navigate to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2" 2. Overwrite the "materials" folder in your "left4dead2" folder. 3. Overwrite your "Whitelist.cfg" with the supplied one. 4. Open pak01_dir.vpk with notepad++ and change the following lines, (bmelee_weapons is the Black Axe, rmelee_weapons is the Red Axe) $baseTexture "models\Weapons\melee/4melee_weapons" Too$baseTexture "models\Weapons\melee/rmelee_weapons" QUESTIONS Feel free to e-mail me at frg6789@hotmail.com SteamID: frg6789 I hope you enjoy the Skin

as of a few months ago, Valve inserted a "Consistency Check" so if you edit the pak01_dir file, you can't join online games.

I really love the black axe, however I'm using the red one.

Mostly because the red blur frustrates me.

However, I noticed you said that the most recent version fixed the motion blurs. You give a VPK for the black axe. I have edited the VPK manually. My question is, if I use the black axe vpk you gave is it going to work in every game mode? Thanks a lot.

Great skin. Thanks so much for it.

The motion trail will work in all game modes, however the custom skin probably wont. So thats when you'd need to edit your PAK file just for the skin, and have the VPK turned on to get both a black texture and a black motion trail in all game modes.
If anyone knows of a better way I'd love to hear it, but at the moment, Valve has been very picky on what edits will transfer over into what game modes via VPK.
ummmm....

Love the black axe! Personally I think the red motion thingy works perfectly when your chopping the sh*t out of zombies. I dont even notice it since it blends in with the blood.

Thanks Handsome Dan, another amazing skin!
