Where can I put the psd?

Here's a jpeg that can be just dropped onto a layer for the moment anyway. I've left on the UV liines and numbers incase anyone wants to use that as a guide aswell.
I slapped the numbers in, so I could easily/quickly find what block I was working to, and how far through the lines need to cross.

I hate counting :D

I'll have to clean up the psd a tad first :D
I like to play around with a lot of layers, and the numbers for each join were just scribbled in too.

I had another idea for a method that could work for complex lines going into the top section. I'll give it a go, see if it works and let you know

When i exported them i saved them as like CRG_Body edited.tga so i knew which ones were what.

You'll have to take the "edited" part off the tga before packing

I left my psd's with names like that, but saved the driver.tga etc to a new folder named with the new skin name, so I knew where to look with painted, and keep them apart from any other versions

Yup, I used the UV layer, but was still a pain guessing the angles that the lines etc would meet up.
Made me wish I'd bought a helmet with a far simpler design :D

I ended up making a layer where I numbered each join of the helmet top and side, so i knew which section each line would cross and how far across it.

I don't have any Karting boots as yet, so I've used yours from th TK template at the moment :D Hope you don't mind!
Also used your TK kart template, just so I can see where things sit exactly before I update.

Thanks for posting the templates etc by the way! VERY helpfull!

Again, no idea why the suit wasn't showing before. It just seemed to, WORK when I gave it another go. Very strange

Here's how it looks for the moment anyway.
Suit is Sparco Jarno.

Nevermind. For whatever reason, it's working now. No idea what the problem was, as I didn't change anything.
Voodoo magic or something

Managed to paint up my Sparco Jarno suit and get it working without an issue now.

Hi Guys,

I'm having an issue with putting the kart suit into the game.
I've downloaded as EVO's TK suit as a test, so I can see where everything on the psd sits before I edit my own suit into the game. (front of leg/arm etc)

I've used paintEd on the driver.tga file I made from EVO's psd, and placed the .pnt file into karts/paints/t folder.
No joy in the game though. I only get the option for base, and official.

I've been looking through the forums but can't figure what I'm doing wrong or missing so any helps would be great.

On a plus note, I've Managed to paint up my Helmet in PS (Nori Haga replica), and for a first effort, it lined up a hell of a lot closer than I thought it would (My brain was sizzling when I was trying to guess where the lines would meet up) :D
A few small tweeks needed, but overall I'm pretty pleased. Never tried doing 3d stuff before :)
