How to use beard from one player to another with different hair color. *HELP*

Postby jeremiahsabado284 on Thu Dec 19, 2019 2:51 am

hi good day guys. i was trying to make a unique cyberface by mixing and matching stuff. credits to TGsoGood, video
phpBB [video]

but then i bummped in to this problem. i tried using DRose hair with tyson chandlers beard but the beard looks pixelated or something

it should look like this

the beard strands aren't showing up instead it loads black squares or somthing. after trying out some stuff i found out that whats causing this is the hair_color.dds file

My question is is there a way to use two (2) different hair color to load the beard and hair perfectly?
please help! thanks!

Yes there is. Basically you have to rename everything related to the facial hair texture as hair_01_shell. Trevor is the go to for this, he helped me last year with it. I’d reach out to him via PM and he can step you through it in more detail. I’ll try to see if I can find his full response.

Edit: I found it. It’s part forum post quote and part PM between us. I know posting PM’s is a violation of the rules, but I solely post it with the intentions of helping another user and answering a question, not to be inflammatory. If the mods want it removed, I can do so.

There are issues when using 2k18 or 2k19 facial hair in 2k17, as well as when attempting to use 2k17 or 2k18 facial hair in 2k19. But 3D hair is interchangeable between the 3 games. There should not be any issues mixing and matching 3D hair and facial hair between games. The only potential issue would be that the hair textures aren't applied correctly to both due to different UV maps. You can work around this by using 2 sets of hair texture files as I outlined here:

Yes definitely. Change the filenames for one of the sets of textures from "hair" to "hair_shell". Then add "hair_shell_shader" to Material section in whatever SCNE file it's in and change "facialHair_shader" or "hair_shader" to "hair_shell_shader" in the Prim section of the SCNE file

Correct. One set of scne files need to have their name changed to hair_shell_xxxxx.scne
