Need help in weapon textures - A Forum Thread for Counter-Strike 1.6.

Im new to creating skins Currently, im working on a USP. The colour on the slide looks dull. How do I add gloss or the shiny effect on it using photoshop ? For example, the gloss on the red colour of Glock | Candy Apple Thanks in advance :)

    You can do that with Jed's Half-Life Model Viewer once you compile model with the texture. Just open model with it and go to textures tab, select texture which you want and check chrome.

Let´s say that the slide of the USP is in the same group as the handle or mag or wathever part in the model... How the hell he can add "chrome" only on the slide?

How the hell he can add "chrome" only on the slide? The texture has to be separate one from the one on the other side. Well i'm pretty sure that's the only way to add it as far as i know, but there sure are some tutorials on this so don't belive me too much.

Just open model with it and go to textures tab, select texture which you want and check chrome. I tried that but that makes all the details disappear. I used a bright metallic colour on my texture but ingame, its looks kinda dull
