I'm making a poorly drawn stormtrooper skin, you can read more on the the modding forum. But thats not important right now. I'm editing the .skin files and all the filenames in it are .tga when all my stormtrooper skins and the originals are in .jpg format. What should i do? If you read this, please post your AIM screename because i need to talk to you.

Actually you don´t have to change the .tga to .jpg, I don´t do it and it works for me.

I took the second bit of advice and left them all at .tgas even when the actual files were .jpgs the skin works, but it doesnt have red/blue skins. I did the same exact thing with the red and blue textures and .skin files, so i dont know what i did wrong. PLZ Help. I'd also want to add bot support and sounds, but right now i just want all the regular stuff to work.

Well, neither worked. I know im doing something wrong with the .skin file. I've tried leaving them as tgas and changing them to jpegs. I only never noticed because i wasnt being very observent and i could not get a clear view of the front of my skin in-game.

read the sticky thread and if you still don't get it then use the link in that thread to exarkun's site he gives a nice step by step explanation

I got it to work, i'll just need to stomp out some little mess-ups in the skin, they all have a little bit of blue (the skin background color), but this should be easy to fix. Expect to see it on JK2files.com soon. I've already sent in the mod, it still has the problem that i just told you about, but i never noticed it while playing so hopefully noone else will.
