************************************************** ****** Quigon007's Guide For Jedi Academy Character Replacement ************************************************** ****** Note: You need to know how to mod previous to this tutorial

1. Open up your assets0.pk3 file and extract -> strings\english\MENUS.str Now open the assets1.pk3and extract -> models\players\jedi_hm\playerchoice.txt

2. Now extract the character you wish to use (for example I will use Kyle) -->models\players\Kyle 3. Open up the MENUS.str under notepad and add the character info at the top of the list like so

VERSION "1" CONFIG "W:\bin\stringed.cfg" FILENOTES ""

REFERENCE JEDI_KYLE -------------------this just tells the menu where to look NOTES "For character menu" LANG_ENGLISH "Kyle Katarn"

REFERENCE JEDI_HF NOTES "For character menu" LANG_ENGLISH "Human Female"

5. Move the playerschoice.txt from models\players\jedi_hm to the kyle folder

6. Now rename the folder models\players\kyle to models\players\jedi_kyle

7. Now open the playerschoice.txt -------------this text is for chossing colors for torsos and delete everything but:

//colorshadername {action block}

*white { setcvar ui_char_color_red 255 setcvar ui_char_color_green 255 setcvar ui_char_color_blue 255 }

8. Now rename open the model_default.skin file and rename the path: EX. " head_face,models/players/jedi_kyle/kyle_face.tga " and so on

9. now you need to rename the model_default.skin to head_a1.skin

10. take the head_a1.skin and copy it to 2 more skin files named: lower_a1.skin and torso_a1.skin

11. Finally, create 3 icons named icon_head_a1.jpg icon_torso_a1.jpg icon_lower_a1.jpg

12. pk3 it and your all set.

Note: for example, if you want to have kyle to have more than one changable skin, just have lower_b1.skin; lower_c1.skin etc. to add the path of the other skins, and don't forget to add a icon for every skin file you make!!!!

Very good. I've added Kyle and 4 skins, but I have some questions:

1 - Why there's no "kyle Katarn" text when I choose him? 2 - Is there a way to definetively delete all the species leaving only two or three Kyle models (added before...)? 3 - Is there a way to change the texts "SPECIES" and "choose a species" with something else? 4 - Is there a way to let the player to choose ONLY the lower, torso or head style (and not the whole skin at once...)? I can change the (whole) skin only by changing the head style...

For now you can only add new species... by following this "bugged" tutorial, the only one (for now). However you can exchange the two face textures (one of the two white ones with the black one...). I think you know how... For the title in your profile, first login, then go in "user CP" on the top of a generic gamingforums page. Then click on profile and change your title... Maybe GF stands for Gaming forums...

You surely replaced jaden_female by Darth_Maul lol. It is enough like said it N3G1@ to modify the sound.cfg file or to move Darth_Maul to Jaden_Male.
