  • Material overrides in s2fm? Want to make a model transparent

    It seems that transparency in gimp doesnt translate to the tga and in the material editor I can't seem to find where to make the model have an alpha channel. The alpha test either makes it appear 100% and disappear.

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    Okay figured it out on my own. So material overrides don't work in s2fm (to my knowledge) and Im not smart enough to work the vmat editor to make mine transparent. So I just made the model as a particle system with an alpha random. Then I animated it's movement in the particle editor since it was pretty basic.
