How to make your own saber

This is a weapon of a Jedi Knight. Not as clumsy or as random as a blaster.
What you need if you want to create your own lightsaber for
"Jedi Knight" or "Mysteries of the Sith"

Software
  
  • Download MatMaster To convert BMP's to Mat files and vice versa.   
  • Download BMut To create bm files for the menus.   
  • Paint Shop Pro or any other good graphic program (I use Photoshop).   
  • and for editing the "sabers.dat" file, any text editor will do.



  • Creating a Lightsaber
    An elegant weapon for a more civilized time.
      There are four files you need to change and edit.
      
  • The "sabers.dat" (similar to "models.dat") tells the JK engine
      which texture files to put on which saber.   
  • The next two files are the actual textures for the saber.   
  • Finally, you need to create a BM file so gamers can choose
      your new saber in the menu.



  •   For this tutorial, we'll be making a Dark saber.
