i tried to make my first skin, but i guess i messed up somewhere. i followed a tut by hobbs for skinning a german steilhangranate. i edited the tga in photoshop, then i made the folders in pakscape, then i saved it as a pk3, then zipped it. but in the game, i see a normal grenade. there is the skin below. anyone know what the problem is?

Your file looks fine, when you tested it was the name of the file squirrel_nade.pk3 or something else?
BTW, the game reads pk3 files, not zip files. If you zipped it BEFORE you tested it, as you post suggests, then that is definitely your problem.
i didnt change the name of the file, and i saved it from pakscape as a pk3. i put it in my folder as i saved it.
There's only two things that can be wrong: either the path to the file and/or filename is incorrect, or the game is loading a different texture after it loads yours.
Put some zzz's on your pk3 just to be safe. Do you have other mods in your main?
First of all, that link doesnt work, zip’s damaged send me the right zip (or pk3) to [EMAIL="email@example.com"]firstname.lastname@example.org[/EMAIL] or post it here and then i’ll fix it and tel you what you did wrong
Maybe you should try re-downloading it. It works fine for me.
