I'm a bit stuck. I've managed to pinpoint that the problem is coming from the .albm texture that i am using. I tried changing the nrmr and the atos textures just to be sure - but no matter what adjustments i make to those two - these shiny artifacts remain consistent. Therefore the problem lies in the .albm file.
My DDS settings are:
BC7 (ive switched between fine and fast - same results)
Color + Alpha (alpha is 100% black: therefore non mettalc)
Mipmaps - are auto generated
layers flattened before saving
mrmr - alpha is grey, same settings pretty much as albm
On the hex editor side:
I made sure that the streaming dds is 2048 x 2048
the sectionroot dds is 1024 x 1024
headers are all properly copied,
and checked all textures in Noesis (albm, nrmr and atos all looking correct)
but only when when in the game - it looks like this.
I'm completely stumped as to what to do next. I couldn't see this problem before because I was having an issue with getting rid of the full body shinyness. Now that I have solved that problem, this is new on me. And I couldn't find any info on the several tutorials about textures.
Has anyone encountered this issue? Any suggestions?
The sherrifs belt:
- I modified only the mesh (by deleting some parts of the belt, and re-sizing the mesh to fit around his waist. I made no changes to the texture files, or the uv mapping, and the shiny-ness just changed. I made sure to put the newly edited belt mesh thru the same process as the mesh import (going thru noesis and such, and renaming the mesh and exporting correctly) but yeah, this shiny belt issue just kind of appeared on its own.
I've only been dealing with the weapon textures and in those .albm files the alpha channel is a gradient, the brighter the alpha the more "reflective" it is, like glossy the darker it is the more matte it appears basically the wooden parts of the weapon are very dark grey/black (though not completely black perhaps as you found) and the metal parts are very bright, light light grey to white
edit; accidentally read over the part in the first post I was going to suggest maybe it was the issue of copying the wrong .tex header (found that out the hard way, albm and nrmr are not the same header haha) because that can give weird ingame artifacts too (I copied the header from the albm file on the nrmr file and the reflections were all messed up, way too dark too)
albm : RGB Albedo, with Metalness in the alpha channel. nrmr : RGB Normal, with Roughness in the alpha channel. atos : R = Alpha (transparency), G = Translucency, B = Occlusion, with Subsurface scattering (SSS) in the alpha channel.
Some models may use different textures, I've come across a few already.

zorlin3321: the forums not dead, it just doesn't have that many people because this site competes with nexusmods in search engines and nexusmods will beat you every time. not really fair but this place provides exclusive content that's not on nexusmods so i visit here
