I am making my first skin, its not brilliant but at least its not another reborn. I am using the jedi model and i have done the default skin and i would like to try it out to see if it looks ok before goin onto the team & other skin thingies. I put all the files in a pk3 wich i put in the base folder in my jk2 directory but when i try to select it in the multiplayer game its not there. I treid doin the /model command but that dont work either it just uses the normal jedi skin. I am creating my own server to try it out.

Somebody plz help me i would like to get into skinning :type:

Do you have .jpgs in models\players\BenZB (where BenZB replaces right directory of your skin) ???

Do you have model_default.skin file (in models\players\BenZB)?

Do you have model.glm file (in models\players\BenZB)?

BTW, You can also view it in ModView, but configuration of it isn't easy, so much better is loading skin in-game.

BTW #2, Here is a good tutorial: http://www.jk3files.com/file.stuff?body=CustomSkinningTutorial

[color=red]yeah..that tutorial didn't help me much. I have all of the things you mentioned (.skin, .glm), the things in the .skin match the jpgs, and I have a icon for it...but, I can't see it?

and my .pk3 is a folder :wtf:

o, and it is 'just another reborn' :p

(my first skin too) any ideas?[/color]

How does it behaves:

You can play as completly invicible guy? You can play as kyle?

And "and my .pk3 is a folder" - I don't get it:

To pk3 a mod, you must:

go to folder where you have directories such as "models", "scripts", "sounds", "maps"...

Select all folders you want to pk3

Right-click one

Choose from pop-up menu: win zip > add to zip file...

As name type: C:\mymod.pk3 (remember about .pk3 at end)

And copy this pk3 to gamedata\base

I followed that tutorial exactly, I unzipped the assets0 file i copyied all the stuff in the jedi folder in the models folder and made a new folder in models/players called jimbob . In this folder I have all the stuff I should like the model.glm and the skin thingies, and yes all the pictures are jpgs exept jimbob_face_02.tga and jimbob_head_01.tga

when i created the pk3 i followed the tutorial exactly, i made a folder on the desktop called models wit players inside it & jimbob inside that i put all the stuff inside it & zipped it all into a pk3 wich i put in gamedata/base

im pretty sure i did everything right so it might be something to do with the game or my pc
