MX Reflex Skin DLC Packager v0.9.5.3
« on: July 18, 2014, 11:54:26 am »
Finally it is possible to add your own skins to Reflex, TwistedDIRT brings you the MX Reflex Skin DLC Packager which supports building you're own DLC packages for Rider gear, Bike and ATV skins.

Warning: Using this program and the DLC packages that it generates will almost certainly cause your profile to be reset at some point. To avoid this you will need to deselect any custom rider/vehicle skins from the in-game Garage before you remove or replace any DLC packages. If Reflex tries to load a skin that is no longer available to it, then the game will crash and your profile will be reset.


The packager comes with wireframes for all of the supported gear and vehicles to get you started. You can create up to 25 custom skins per DLC (for gear DLCs) with DLC010, DLC011, DLC012, DLC013 used for gear, DLC014, DLC015, DLC016 used for Mx bikes and DLC017, DLC018, DLC019 used for ATVs.


Each skin set needs at least 1 texture to be replaced before it can be saved to a DLC, that is the diffuse texture, which is always the first tab on the texture tab set and usually is labelled 'Skin' or 'Plastics'. The grey light will only turn green (which means the texture will be included in the DLC package) when this skin has been replaced. Some other textures have been included in most sets if you want to play with them but they are not needed to make a new skin set. If you have changed the textures in a skin set but not the diffuse skin, then the light turns orange to tell you that you have made changes but the skin set will not be saved to DLC.

You only need this tool if you want to create skins. It creates DLC packages that you will be able to download from sites like reflex-central.com or mxmaniacs.com and then you can install these skins by copying the unzipped download files to your \Database folder in your MXReflex install folder. Remember to de-select any custom skins before you install a new DLC packages.

You can download the packager here.

MX Reflex Skin DLC Packager v0.9.5.3


Big thanks goes to JvdL and JamieT for their tireless testing and solid feedback that made it possible to make this program.   :-*


Have fun

Good stuff guys.

I'll update Reflex Central tomorrow so that you can upload your skins there.  I'm sure Reaper will be doing the same to mxmaniacs pretty soon, if he hasn't already...

Post a link to it here might be as good as anywhere.. If you are happy with people using it as a basis for their own skins then a PSD is fine otherwise you might want to use a JPG or PNG and reduce the size to something more easily viewable on screen.

If you haven't got anywhere to upload the file and you want others to be able to d/l it then email me and i'll stick it on the TD server for you. Otherwise mxmaniacs you can upload skin files, should allow you to u/l a PSD file if that's what you want to do..

one 450 of each brand per pack. one 250 of each brand per pack.  this just replaces the 3 dlc bike packs that came with reflex.

I seen that troy lee bike on mxmamiacs it looked sexy!!!

it kinda sucks but the best thing is probably to team up and release full packs as there is only three slots so it makes sense to have them full.
im thinking
-one pack needs to be all stock bikes.
-one pack for full US factory teams like, muscle milk Honda 450, troy lee Honda 250(your bike would fit here nice!), jgr Yamaha 450, star Yamaha 250, red bull ktm 450, Yoshi Suzuki, pro circuit kawi 250 (ive done this) ect

its going to be messy if too many single bikes get released. it will cause lots of game crashes if the person installs without swapping back to a stock bike first. this will make people pretty unhappy as you may have to restart reflex from scratch to repair the crashing fault.

anyone else keen on this project? any bikes you'd like to make for this project? any diffenent sugestions? I just don't want to double up!
twisted dirt bike pack 1- stock bikes
twisted dirt bike pack 2 - ama factory teams

Nothing is replaced from the stock game.  These custom skin packs were just based on those skin DLCs that came with the game.  Basically just using them as a guide.


Uploads on Central are slightly broken at the moment guys.  You can upload packs like Mototank has done to the tracks section, and I will move them once everything is fixed.  The problem is to do with the size limit of the files you can upload.  It's a long story, but I've had to contact my hoster, and they're trying to figure out the problem.  All their suggestions so far haven't worked.  The issue seems to be server side, with something I've got no control of.

Hello guys. this game quite old and new 2013-2014 bicycles will be suitable for it not all) But for UNLEASHED many excellent skins, 2009-2010 the bicycle were made. Whether as you think we can use skins from MCMFactory for REFLEX and whether there will be guys against? There after all there were magnificent skins of GALA, RUIS KOVALSKI and many other guys) I have no with them communications, probably someone from you know mail, or communicates with them?

twisted dirt bike pack 1- stock bikes
twisted dirt bike pack 2 - ama factory teams


we can also have steam reflex teams pack like T-usa and my current team DM.
but i am totally up for that idea btw i also made the TLD skin for a lites bike with black number plate so if we wanted to put muscle milk in its place, we can.
if you are doing stock bikes or ama skins let others know whos doing what and for which bike.

It's hard to make a decision cause every classic splitfire/pro circuit design is pretty cool! Check out this:

















Last but not least take a look at this one ;D
