    Tools Needed For Modding

    In this folder is all the tools that you will need for modding textures in Black Ops. I added all of the newer tools as well, and If a mod would help me keep it updated, I can update all the tools as they get released.


    Tools


    CRC32 Fixer
    A tool used for fixing the CRC32 value of a file after modding it, so that you can get into public servers. Very essential.

    HxD Hex Editor
    In this folder I am including the IWIFixerBlackOps tool, but just in case there is an issue with it, or you can not get it to work, it is good to have a good hex editor to do it manually. Refer to House's tutorial on how to use it.

    Pakscape
    A tool used for opening the IWD's that all of the game image files (IWI's) are located in. To use, either open pakscape and go to open, and then select "All file formats" in the second drop down box, or right clcik on an IWD (like iw_11) and go to Open With>Pakscape.

    iwi_x_dds
    A tool for converting the game's native file format IWI into a DDS (DirectDraw Surface) file that Photoshop can open and edit.

    dds2iwi
    The tool you will need to convert your modded DDS files back into the games readable IWI format.

    DDS Photoshop plugin
    Photoshop will need this in order to open DDS files. Just run the installer once you have photoshop installed. See below for download links to photoshop.

    IWIFixerBlackOps by master131 (THREAD)
    Using this tool will automatically do the hex editing step for you. It helps speed up the process, and adds an extra prevention measure for messing something up on accident.

    Texture Installer V3 by House (THREAD)
    This tool is used for automatically installing textures. Check the thread for more information and how to use.

    House's tutorial
    Here is the tutorial from the THT on how to make/use texture mods.

    Texture Modding Tutorial for Black Ops

    Download Links for Photoshop
    Here are links to Photoshop CS3, CS4, and CS5.
    Photoshop Download Links

    ALL of the links here are in the .me domain due to the issues with 1and1. When Dave gets those resolved, if a mod would be kind enough to change them all back to .net. Also, I dont really know how I would have screenshots of a folder, but I will include the scans here. Mods can delete this text when they see it, and we get moved back to .net. I also realize House put the TOOLS.rar from the MW2 section in his tut, but I am posting the same+some of the new tools for simplicity.

    Scans----
    Virustotal 8/42
    Jotti 2/19
    The majority of the false positives come from the IWIFixer/CRCFixer. There are a couple of others that come from the Texture installer too though. I scanned it with Avast! and Super AntiSpyware Pro myself. If you dont trust it, nobody is making you download.

    If a mod would so kindly remove the small text about domain issues, and switch the links over to .net instead of .me, it would be appreciated.
