hmmm..thinks you like it,..
before I was only importing the .ms which is mesh only or static object..there is no bones and texture inside.. so that the reason why the old methon dont have the effect of socket gem.. until I dicided to work with the smd files...ive notice the when I export the edited smd as a gr2, the only visible is the effect of the poison or ice.. I did more than 50 time figuring out why this is happend,,,
now here's my method and what I did to put back the weapon and effect...
in this method we are using the f_katana model as an example..
1.import the smd file,then rename the "smdimport" name to the original name of the mesh which is f_katana..
2.import the new model mesh.obj to the scene.. then click the original editable mesh ,rigth click then attach to the new model mesh.
3.after you attach the new model to the original mesh.click on the editable mesh >element and select the original mesh (weapon) rigth click then detach and then delete it..now only the new model is remain...
4..then click on the editable mesh and go to display tab, and select "hide selected" so that the only visible on the scene is only the bones....
5.next find the bone with the name of the mesh ..ex. " f_katana " the name is thesame name of the editable mesh ,click on it and then delete..so now the bone that remain is fx_wpn_glow and weapon_r_hand/weapon_l_hand,,
6.then export it as a gr2..
on the mesh setting unselect all except the mesh name f_katana
on the model setting include all..you will notice that if you double click the "model button"you will see the bone name ex.fx_wpn_glow or something , and inside it contains all the bone name and no "f_katana"
its becuase we delete it...
after that check on the exported gr2 files on grannyviewer ..make sure on the mesh tab only the f_katana or the model in it..
and on the model tab make sure all the bones are include.(just ignore if the model name is not the f_katana...it will load on the game with no error.
now im still figuring it out,,maybe we can link the mesh on the bones so that the model name on the grannyviewer is the f_katana..
hope it help alot..
