first, when you edit a existing skin, the importants is: make a save copy.lol. i changed some stuff and did it wrong and didnt saved it. so, make a save copy, if anything is running wrong, you have then the original file to overwrite the crashed one.
to edit a existing skin, get the PakScake. it is to open pk3 format. then you just have to paint the jpg files inside by yourself how you wanna have it. use a program like Photoshop 7. you have to reanme the pics. when you rename, dont make a whole new name. do it like that:
old one:h_Blah new one:h_papupapu only the last part, so the name i mean.
and its much more easier, when you name all pic same. like that: h_papupapu f_papupapu a_papupapu b_papupapu
you have to rename pics and also the pk3 file when you save it later, save it with a other name, if you dont do, you overwrite the old one. you also have to search for the old name entrys in the shader file and the skins file and the NPC file (the npc file is for the look of the model. so to set surfaces on or off. like the collar and knifes, ect. thats the thing i have problems with) open them with wordpad or with the editor. all old names of the pic inside of them rename to the new name like i showed you. and you need a selectpic. in the GFX folder you can find it. thats the pic, wich you see in the menu, where you select the skins in the game. all you have to do now, is to save the pk3 with PakScape with a new name, put the pk3-file in your SoF2\Base\Mp-folder and start up the game and look, if it work. some skins dont show up, try to name the pk3 zzz.pk3 and try if it work. you can rename the pk3 everytime. its just to test.
when it dont work, i forgot to tell you anything,lol. i dont hope, but may be. so try it out and tell me, if it works.
try it out. try it out. if i told you anything wrong, tell me. all i need now, is to know, how to set that surfaces off, like the collar model contours. what to write in the npc file for.
hope that i can help you.
