:bulletblack: I am using model X from a different game Y and I have a problem with ... !
This tutorial should work for most models, however, models exported from different games may be using different textures or something, that needs different settings than Lara's models. I'm sorry, but I can't help you with that.

Helped quite alot when i was trying to get rid of a shine effect on a model I have. Still having some bother with the look of their skin but I might have just missed some of the steps.

In any case, thanks for the tutorial =D

I haven't understood how to fix the eyes or what you do at the end. I think you should contain more details.
It's helpful by the way :)

Thanks for the tutorial, very nicely made n 'twas very helpful :thumbsup::) I used the tutorial with my Ayane model but I have a few problems like some of her skin being too rough (like old man skin) and her eyes not appearing in the render even after I found a second sorta white eyeball set around the actual eyes and made it transparent, I did wut I could, is this a problem with the textures or settings in the preceding procedures :?

Really stupid question, but how do you even open a model into Xnalara? I'm trying to get a Balthier model in Blender, but it is .ascii so I downloaded XNAlara so I could export it into a file type that worked. But now I don't even know how to load models into XNAlara because it doesn't have a button allowing me to browse my files.... I don't understand how this program works, I understand Blender.

Just put the folder of the model and its textures in the data folder in the XNALara_XPS directory, then it will appear in the 'add model' menu in the program. I frequently run into these lame problems with these programs, the solutions are usually straightforward (so much so that it's usually hard to find a written solution somewhere) but without them u can't take a single step :l Good luck.
