I was wondering if any1 could tell me what to do to skin weapons and get them to work ?
> What programs do i need and which ones do people use? > Did what it said in sof2 files ,no luck.
> Please help
i just started skinning myself, and i found that tutorial a big help. if you followed the tutorial, you know you need winzip/pakscape and an editing program (i use psp) i dont really know how to help you cuz i dont know where you are stuck.
did you open the models.pk3, and find the ak in the weapons folder? (lets say your skinning the ak) did you make the 3 folders in each other? (models/weapons/ak74/ak74.jpg) are you using psp? make sure when you save you save as ak74.JPG not .psp ummmm i think your folder names have to be exactly the same (sig551 cant be sig, ak74 cant be ak) im not sure though.
could you tell me exactly where your stuck?
You dont need Pakscape to Pk3 it, its just the easy way out thats all. If you have good knowledge of Winzip that is good. I think the 'rename' part is dealing with Winrar, not winzip. Winzip is a little different. Do what is on the Tutorial about the edit. Create a new archive in winzip CLASSIC (not wizzard). Take the models folder you created and drop it in the file area. You should see a dialog box(see Attached JPG below). Just hit ok after you typed in the filename.pk3 as shown in the screen. and look in the folder you saved it to (in the Models folder whereever you put it on the HD.) just pull it out, put it in the MP folder, and Enjoy :D
I did what it said to do in sof2 files again ,still no luck.
I made the 3 files models/weapons/usa made it a zipped file then went and renamed it models.pk3, when i did this little box poped up and said " if you change a file name extension, the file may become unusable" i clicked (yes) (In the models.pk3 file i have in it :thumbs.db , usa12.jpg)
Then put the pk3 file in my mp folder. Went and played and nothing it is the old usa
What am i doing wrong?
for starts its usas not usa :D and what is the folder called? is it usa? it should be called usas12 (models/weapons/usas12/usas12.jpg) what is :thumbs.db ? zip it again with only the jpg inside. and make sure your folder is called usas12 not usa.
Deleting the DB file makes no difference. Using the right names does. :D
