The tutorial wasn't actually great. It was outdated and messy. When I made it, it made sense, but at some point, it didn't anymore.
The good news is that a hires video tutorial is hosted on my site for Brainfart!
The link: http://www.alice-dsl.net/wolf.mathwig/tools/brainfart/
It is an AVI file, the VLC player ( to be found at http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
) will play this just fine. You can read everything and as long as you can understand my weird english, the audio commentary is detailed enough to make you do everything right.
It shows and explains everything better than what I posted in the thread Untadaike linked to, so that's the definitive guide from my side at this point.
I once posted that video on my YouTube account, but the resolution was fucked up there, so I felt the need to host the hires AVI on my private space and pull the YouTube version.
BE GENTLE with my bandwidth.
You'll need Brainfart to actually convert COLLADA models to SOLID models (and vice versa), which you can get here: http://www.alice-dsl.net/wolf.mathwig/tools/brainfart/
(same link as above)
There's a link to an archive hosted on my webspace. Extract that archive. Run the JAR. Convert away. There's all sorts of help and README.txt stuff and so forth in the archive, check that stuff out.
You need Java6 to run Brainfart. OpenSource Java equivalents should work, which should help you out if you're on OSX.
The current Brainfart version is (and will be for quite a while) 0.3.
Note that if you start Brainfart from a terminal with
.. then you have to be inside the folder Brainfart.jar is in. Could solve an issue some Linux versions seem to have, so do that if this applies to you.
Have fun and post awesome shit!
Hint: You can also make objects (instead of weapons). Do it! Nobody's made a cool object mod collection. There's your free fame, mate.

- this is not a support thread for this kinda stuff. So consequently, that's all I'll say on the matter inside of the Holy Lotus Wolf Thread Of Awesome.
EDIT: All download link extravaganza issues resolved right now. Again, be gentle on my bandwidth - it's a private webspace. In the meantime, I'll look for some other hosting solution.
