Unhappy Texture changes when moving mesh.

Hello. Iím kinda green in maya and have a question.
Iíve made a model of a drumkit, rigged it, and made a texture for it, but Iím getting a weird problem upon moving it by joint, you can see the issue on the image below.
I have already tried to delete non deformer history, and Creating Texture Reference Object.

Here's the img:


Any ideas?

I don't recall the order you should use when using texture reference objects, or if it matters, cause you should just unwrap the UVs and texture based on those. For a mesh like this you don't have to get fancy with the UVs, simple projections should do.

I saw a guy having this kind of problem. What the cure was, freezing the objects transformation and remapping uv.

Deleting history always sorted this problem out for me.

Tried, didn't work unfortunately.

A few questions:

Is this issue showing up in renders?
Have you tried switching the viewport renderer types around to see if it's just a display error?
Is it a 2D or a 3D texture?
What is the shader setup down the line of connections for it?
What do the inputs look like on the mesh?
Do you have insane history on the mesh other than the assumed skinCluster?

Answer some of these and I might be able to help .

I'll try my best :P
1. Yes it does.
2. It's the same on all of them
3. It's a 2d texture (place2Dtexture)
4. None. This model was made to be exported into the Source Engine, so the only things made for now were the texture and the bump map.
5. Not sure what do you mean by that, and how to check it out (I'm green in the whole hierarchy, node, input things in maya).
6. Well, it's a mess, so that's possible. But deleting the history maked me lose all my bindings, so I'm looking for another way.

This is my first more compilcated model made in maya. Sorry for being a noob, but I'm trying to learn from my mistakes :P

Okay so. Quick fix:
Duplicate the original mesh in whatever your "T-pose" or "bind pose" was and bind that to the same joints as the original mesh. now copy weights over from the original messy mesh to the new clean mesh. Delete the old one and viola, clean geo and no history and hopefully issues bye bye.
