You can use Moses' bitmap optimizer/converter to get any texture from halo 1 PC/CE/Xbox bitmap tags(http://forum.halomaps.org/index.cfm?page=topic&topicID=50247
Its part of the refinery upload)
The diffuse textures are recolored by the alpha channel in the multipurpose maps by shaders, and the cubemaps also contribute color to the overall look of the elites ingame.
solid color is multiplied over the alpha channel of the multipurpose map, the result of that is also multiplied over the diffuse. Cubemaps are basically static reflection textures, they are multiplied over the multipurpose maps' blue channel which basically controls how strong or bright the reflective cubemap is.
~dataelite special is the specops/commander bitmap set, while dataelite torso is for the normal elite variants.

You can extract bitmaps using Texource for CE tags, or from a PC mapfile using Eschaton.
The bitmap you want is located in characters\elite\elite.bitmap
The elite bitmap is monochrome, a tag function overlays a color mask that changes their appearance ingame depending on their rank. This is done via the Actor Variant and Biped tags, in this case. You can duplicate this effect in Photoshop if you are exporting to another platform, simply add a colormask layer in Photoshop, adjust hue satuation and levels then resave the bitmap.
Wow i havent used eschaton since halo trial days yearrrrrrs ago.
Diffuse bitmaps are not monochrome, UI bitmaps are only even black and white because the xbox actually had a format for it originally which converted to mono.
For PS, use a solid color over the diffuse layer and use the multipurposes alpha as its mask, set the color layer to multiply.
PS the prefix "data" is something done by Moses' tool, idk if you can change it or not but its not like it matters--original texture names are without the data prefix (elite torso.dds)Edited by Imouto on Jul 13, 2017 at 03:19 PMEdited by Imouto on Jul 13, 2017 at 04:47 PM
