Heyo all, quick question. I recently ttied to make some new light textures for a project. I made the texture but when I brought it into Binedit it loaded the entire image with the background instead of just the light. I've looked for tutorials but couldn't find one. Maybe I'm just being a noob but can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong here?

Are we talking about the texture that one would assign to the front corners of the truck, or the flat glowy texture used to simulate the glow of a lit headlight?

The one used to simulate the glow, sorry I didn't clarify.

As I recall, the glow texture is drawn in mtm2 with an "additive" effect, which BINEdit's software renderer (?) doesn't support. This won't affect the final result - just go ahead and place the lights where you need them, and in the game they will have their border-free glow.

Edits: I assume you're talking about a truck project, using the built-in light system. If you're talking about something you're trying to assign as a "static" glow on a truck body or track prop, that poses a problem as mtm2 does not offer a "Transparent Additive" face type. But my guess is that's not your goal anyway.

Yeah, it's a truck. I'll try it out tonight or over the weekend. I'll try and get pics if it doesn't work
