Hi, ok m8 first u cant only change the jpeg to have a skin workin,

do all that step

1. Download a workin skin from sof2files.com (like LAPD or Death) from fragger

2. When Done, extract the 4 folder in the pk3 file (zpk3 is like a .zip file u can extract it too)

3. the 4 folders should be : GFX - MODELS - NPCS - SHADERS

4. when done, go in gfx folder, after in playericon this is the picture of the skin whos gonna appear in ur menu (in sof2 mp). ull need to change it later, and change the name of the file it should be : NPC_somethinblabla ( somethinblabla ).jpg --> change all somethinblabla for the name of ur skin but u need to let the NPC !!

5. Go in models, characters, average face and suit_sleeves now do the jpg files... but u need to still let the first letter of the jpg example : a_somethingblabla - b_somethinblabla - f_somethinblabla all the first letters a,b,f need to stay there,

6. When the jpg are done go in Skins folder change the name for ur skin name open it with wordpad --> now u should see a lot of lines with the same extension : a - b - f - f2 - h let 'em there, and put ur skins name after that like u name the jpg exactly that,

7. When done go in NPCS folder, change again the name for ur skin name, after open it, in NAME --> put the name of ur skin

in Formal Name ---> name of ur skin

and at the bottom theres somethin call skin : ex.

Skin

{ File "lapd_police_b1" Inventory { Weapon { Name "M4" } } } }

---------------- where its write : lapd_police_b1

write ur skin name,

when thats done, ur skin is done, (but dont forget to put ur skin picture in) GFX - PLAYERICONS folder

------------

to make a pk3

click on ur right button of ur mouse, do New Zip File, after just move the 4 folders into the zip, when done open the zip

u should see the 4 folders that u put in,

if all thats work its good !!!

now u just need to change the zip for a pk3 file

------------- now u need to change the zip extension to a pk3 one, if u use winrar, when uare going to enter in the zip to see if the 4folders are in . ull see plus the 4 folder another one with "..." of name. click on it ull see a lot of files now, plus the winzip u made u should be able to rename the zip u made.

rename it for : urskinname.pk3

not for like : new.zip

--------------------------------> if u still dont understand... write back ;)

hope i help a little bit heheh

thank u, when i was makin skin i was wishin someone to do somethin like that too, i never understand the other help ... hehehe

well, ok maybe its ur pk3 who doesnt work, to try it,

copy the 4 folder and past 'em in da base directory

say yes wheny theyll ask to replace the file

and enter in the game, if u see ur skin that mean it works and the only problem is ur pk3

if u dont see it, maybe because u make somethin wrong,

sometimes its just "enter" that u did at the wrong place hehehehe

try the 4 folder to past 'em and post back whats happen
