I'm fingering it out, but i'm trying to paint using existing models in the sof2/base_skins.pak
This is what I am doing: I opened the skins.pak file with pakscape and went into the models/characters/female_face directory and got the f2_deviant1.png + f_deviant1.jpg + h_deviant1_pony.jpg files. from there i went into the models/characters/female_skirt directory and got the a_deviant1.jpg file.
Now(whew!) before i experiment in painting, how do i use those to combine them into a single player that i can see in multiplayer?
Are u trying a make a new skins of of it, or just modify the existing one...
If you want to modify, just make sure you make a new PK3 for those 4 pictures. And make sure the new name of the new PK3 goes behind the original skins.pk3 when sorting all files alpabethically!!
If you change the original skins.pk3 you won't be able to connect to pure servers anymore!!
lets just say i want to modify them.... Now when I'm done, should I create a new .pak file with any name I make up? Ie:
