duh skinning is always the same it never changes, the naming of the files and such is different however, the best way to know how it works is by taking a peep at the model and skins that came with the DoD mod, or go to www.planethalflife.com and check there for tuts

I'm trying to skin for DoD....but the models in are like - sniper.mdl

How do I get the different parts....such as the face, torso, and what-not.....to edit.

If I try to just put the .mdl in photoshop....it says it can't read that document or something. How do I get it to work?:confused:

that's the cause the .mdl is the model file which is comparable to JK2's .glm file , you need jpgs or gifs or tgas or pngs or whatever that indicates images, as i said i don't skin halflife so you're gonna have to go to planethalflife and check through some tutorials there, i'm sure someone is capable of helping, hell i would help you, but i don't have HL installed at the moment, the disc is over at a friend's house and i don't even play DoD
