im trying to make a chrome skin like bf1942 had, but i cant seem to extract my texture folder in the right place. i extracted it into the same place as in bf1942 (the main bfv folder) but when i try load a map, the game crashes to desktop. i have already moved the texture.rfa file out of its folder and all. has anyone figured out how to do all this yet? and also, does anyone know the file name for the car-15 skin. thats what i wanted to edit.:beer:

everything you've done is wrong ..... don't mess with the original texture.rfa , leave it where it is , just create a new mod using the MDT and then extract the texture you want to edit to the new mod folder you created ....

ahhhhh. gotcha. so does that mean that i cant just create and submit a skin alone? i have to create a mod just to create a skin? cuz i was thinking that i could just create a skin and you can use the skin on all the servers rather than servers that play with my mod.

if you want to replace only the texture/normal map , you don't need to create a mod .... you can pack it inside your map ..... wait , that wont work if you want to see that new texture in all of the existing maps that come with the game .... so , yeah , your best bet is to create a mini-mod , but then everybody has to have your mod which doesn't happen over night , unless you make something real good .... you could make a custom map and pack alot of changes in your map ....
