Kitmaking Tips and Help Thread

Why does my curve create a semi circle instead of just a curved line?

for my program "Jasc Paint Shop 7" you need to open the properties box for that semi-circle and make sure that ther is no fill, only the stroke should be active. Another way would be to draw a curved line rather than a semi-circle.

need help with this Kit Raptor.

I installed kit Raptor and then tried importing a Goalkeeper kit for Sporting Lisbon, the game doesn't have a kit for them, so a got the "kit not in game" message. Then I ran the "fixer" and tried again, same thing "kit not in game" What I want to do is put the kit in the game!!! :f***:

What do I need to do to get this to work? Please help!

there is no way to directly convert those 2003 kits to 2005 kits but,if you want kits made based on the kits you have got....why not ask the kitmakers on the forums or better still, post a request in the request thread.

How to make simple mesh

1, Open a new image, 4x4px, Transparent


2, Zoom in on this new canvas, 1600%, till it wont become any bigger


3, Select the Pencil Tool and change the brush to "Hard Round 1 Pixel"

4, Choose your colour for the mesh i.e. if red (#FF0000) I will choose a darker shade namely (#D00000)

5, Colour in the canvas with the Pencil Tool as shown in the picture below.


6, Now go to Edit > Define Pattern... and click OK


7, Now the pattern has been loaded into Photoshop so you need to apply it to your kit. Double click the layer you want to apply it to on the Layers tab, tick Pattern overlay and find your pattern.


8, Adding a few more effects and you should now have your mesh looking a bit like this


You can also try making your own mesh patterns, the pattern above isn't the one I use, on my mesh I have added some opaque brush strokes and very low lighter and darker layers.

Happy mesh making!

You could maybe make a mesh tutorial for bigger mesh i.e. the different sized mesh used by nike, if you get me, and if ya can be bothered mate, but yea black textures sounds a good idea.

Guys, for importing GK kits.

I'm trying to import a PSV GK kit, but when i do, it says the kit does not exist, is it because the kit im trying to replace is generic?

Any help Appreciated.
