Hey guys!:cya: I heard that the game is kind of new...well 1-0.5 years seems long enough to me...anyway. Not the point! I am wondering how I could create skins! I have loads of nice ideas and I have downloaded some custom skins. And when I open the second zip file I see DDS files. I open those and I see the skins blue. Here are my questions: -Where is the folder where I can find the skins. Please...I need full location (C:/Program files/BF2/...?) -Is there any program for the skinnin? -How can I make the pictures be normal. I mean not blue. I have the DDS tool for Phtoshop. :) If you could answer these few questions...or just some of them...Please do! THANKS FOR ALL!:beer:

Watev, dude bf2 came out 6 months ago and u want to make skins for a game you don't even know good?? Come back later, youre not welcome - somebody would say (a modder ofc) First learn the basics, like EVERY good modder did (there were no tutorials for coding in binary, people learned how to program a processor by themselves...) Do so too, and use Google.

Duke of Holland And your spoiler is very bad.

Thanks!! Anyway...What the heck is a spoiler? I mean I have heard of a spoiler on a car, a person who spoils stuff...but I don't know anything that could have made sense in that sentence...:confused:

Hmmmm, you dont want to know. The other post was removed, thats all you need to know.

But to answer a few questions (which I forgot): - In your bf2 directory there are some .zip- or .rar-files, look into them; - A program for skinning would be PhotoShop or Paint Shop Pro (my preference is Photoshop; - I really dont understand your final question. Do you mean the normal-maps (red/green/blue) or the displacement-maps (normal color).

Well...I have a DDS tool...just somekinda thing that you can open DDS files with...you can't edit them. I think it comes with Direct X...anyway. I didn't try opening the pictures in photoshop. All I know is that the Direct-x program opened them up all blue...

I dont know the directX thing. But get hold of PS, visit nVdia's website and look for the DDS-plugin, install it and you can open/edit/save as .DDS-files.
