Ok here's my delema: I have a neat idea for a personnalized skin, the problem is, my winzip doesn't work properly and I can't find certain files needed to do my own skinning. :( The major malfunction with my winzip is that it won't let me extract files to my base folder, sounds like no big deal right? I mean I could easily drag the .pk3 files I want into the base folder from another location, but this does become a problem when I look for skin file for characters. When I find the ones I want, I extract them to a file folder and then drag them to the base folder, only when I try to open the model_default_blank.skin file, my computer tells me it's corrupt and can not be opened :confused:

Fat story thin, I need to find someone that has a fairly skilled knowledge of skinning, that would be willing to take a the idea of a not so perfect stranger and turn it into a work of art...or something along those lines ;)

Thanks for the time you spent reading this load of garbage, while thinking, "Man, I could screw this guy over and he wouldn't know the difference!!" -Dan :rock:

P.S. - If the person who decides to help me has any knowledge in making capes, I would love a cape on the skinn.[EMAIL=Stik_Twig@Hotmail.com]mail[/EMAIL]

cape will most likely be a model, cause i don't really know if any base character has a cape.

and i don't know what kind of thing you said about winzip, if you want to edit skins you have to UNZIP the assets0.pk3 file to a location, you don't have to drag the pk3 file into your base folder to edit it, and if your winzip doesn't work download another one from downloads.com

Thanks for your help, man:D. I've got the vader skin and I was just wondering about that, cause somebody must have made him from scratch.

And as for the whole skin thing, I really can't do it cause I don't paint shop Pro, or photoshop, or any other pic enhancing program. :( Oh well, I still need to find someone with time on there hands and a somewhat skilled knowledge in skinning, that would be willing to help out...or possibly make a skin for me!! Anyway, thanks for your help again Zak, t'was useful! I feel that having a pesonnalized skin is a calling, that I msut answer to...nah, I just think it would kinda cool :rock:[EMAIL=Stik_Twig@Hotmail.com]Please give me a shout, I'm a lonley person[/EMAIL]
