OK, I know nothing about skinning and how it works. But, I really really want to try making a new char skin. What software do I need? BTW, I already have Photoshop 7. Is it possible to create something from scratch instead of modifying a default skin? Or can I just import another game char into SOF2?? Is there a website that can explain step by step in skinning a char? And also, I would like to know how to change the filetype from .zip to .pk3 in windows XP Pro? I've tried to just rename the file, however the file type is still in .zip not in .pk3. One more question, I don't know whether this one could work. Can I just swap the picture of the weapons around? as example ak74.jpeg renamed to ussocom.jpeg and vice versa. Will it give me an ak74 that shots like socom and a socom that works like ak 74?
Thank you in advance
You can use PAKSCAPE for easier handling of .pak files. I use it, and it makes things WAY easier! You can use Ravens SkinMOD program for skinning.
