Small tutorial by Asterisk

Change the weapon model to a different global epv color

  • Open the evwp with a hex editor
  • Edit 6C to the desired color (with 010 it is called "Global EFX")
  • Use images as reference point

  • Here is the evwp template for 010 editor

01 dds usage (general fire/liquid/electricity) FF 00 00
02 aura    (player/weapon glow) 00 FF 00
03 mod    (spirals, SA glow, rocks) 00 00 FF
04 light behavior  (light on player/monster/ground) FF 00 FF
05 decal behavior (ground textures that glow) 00 FF FF
06 transparent dds usage (similar to dds usage but becomes a different shade of color) FF FF 00

Q & A:

Q: When is X weapon coming?
A: I'm going in order

00 GS | 01 SnS | 02 DB | 03 LS | 04 Hammer | 05 HH | 06 Lance | 07 GL | 08 SA | 09 CB | 10 IG | 11 Bow

Q: Can I get one color for all GS models?
A: Yes. Download the template then use the epv editor to change the colors listed for the template file to what you want or ONLY take the custom global epv of the color you want (from Color Shift Weapon Application) and rename it to " hm_wp00.epv3"
