Paint creation tutorial
« on: August 21, 2010, 10:06:32 PM »
Paints are used to change liveries of kart and driver.

To add an helmet paint:
1) Download template
2) Create a texture named helmet.tga or helmet.bmp
3) download PaintEd
4) create the directory structure driver/helmets/sk6/paints
5) Using PaintEd, convert the texture to a paint, saving it in the previously created "paints" folder.

To change helmet's visor:
1) Create two textures, named visor.tga and visor#2.tga ( for rain )
2) Move them to the same folder of helmet's texture
3) Using PaintEd, convert the textures to a paint.


Inside Kart Racing Pro, when in "viewer" mode ( click on the dot in the bottom-right corner of main menu ), it is possible to reload a paint from disk pressing the 'r' key.

I searched around and tried to open up a .pnt file with this PaintEd program. But every time I try to open the white.pnt it crashes the program.

Anything you can think of?

You use some program to make a paint (photoshop, paint, gimp etc).
Save file as .tga or . bmp
Use PaintEd to convert your .tga/.bmp image file to .pnt file.
Use that .pnt file in KRP.

PaintEd is just a tool to convert .tga/.bmp to .pnt, it's not image editor program.

I am having the same trouble not being able to see my helmet design in game. It shows the name in the drop down box when selecting the helmet, but when selected, shows the plain white helmet on the driver...

When you open your .pnt file with PaintEd, on the left side does it say 'helmet'? Does clicking on it show your paint correctly on the right?

How do we get a suit to show?
All I can get is the helmet. :-\

[edit]
Just after I posted I thought of something I hadn't tried, put it in the 'kart' folder.
Works like a charm. ;D
