How To Make Custom Glass Textures Fairly Easy, By Ellard8
Today were going to learn how to make decals for CoD2. As I’ve never seen any tutorials for it and a lot of people have asked me how to do it.

I will explain you how I did make a model work in-game. I made a model of arms. In the following steps you have to do the exact same thing I do. So use the same names I use. If you don’t do that it all good end up into s***. Thanks to Jouke Jan Timmermans for this tutorial.

In this tutorial, I'm going to explain how to bring a model from scratch into Call of Duty 2 using the model exporter tool supplied by IW & Activision. This is a step by step process which assumes some familiarity with Maya 6.0 and basic modeling/UV mapping/texturing.
