  3. Open folder called hlmviewer (you just extracted)
  4. In this folder (hlmviewer) you will see 5 more folders but open only folder called "install".
  5. there you will see hlmv.exe
  6. Open "hlmv.exe"
  7. while in you are in program press  >File< then >Load Model<.
  8. Select your gun model. (example: p_ak47.mdl) and click open.
  9. then program will render you that model.
  10. dwon below you will see few more buttons (Render;Sequence;Body;Texture;FullScreen;) select "texture".
  11. then you will see taht you are automaticly selected "wood.bmp"
  12. Click on "export" button near that "wood.bmp"

  14. then again you are in program... Now select other .bmp file from program and export it... do taht with all .bmp files !
  15. Open every single  .bmp files with any of pictures editing programs (Example : Paint.NET ; Gimp 2.0 etc...) and just paint what ever you want or just make solid color.
  16. then save files
