Has anybody else had this problem?
Skins that I have downloaded and properly unzipped into the base folder do not always appear in the skin selection menu. Sometimes a skin that has appeared on the menu will disappear after a while, as well.
For instance, I downloaded the Darth Tyranus skin, but he's not to be found in the menu, so I have to go through the console and bind a key to use that skin (e.g. "bind j model tyranus" or something like that). Aside from the difficulty with keeping track of key binds, I'm sure to run out of binding keys at some point! :)
Another example is the James Bond skin I downloaded. For a while, it worked fine. Ol' James could be found on that menu if I scrolled to the right. But he mysteriously disappeared recently.
I doubt it was SPECTRE that caused Bond and other skins to disappear, and certain skins to remain unseen from the start. Is this all happening because I have too many skins or something? Perhaps certain skins overlap others when they are downloaded and installed? What should I do to fix this?
Well I know that there is a limit to how many skins JK2 can show at one time. I just don't know what the number is ;) From the sound of it you probably may have too many skins in your folder.. try removing some and see :)
if you see this when connecting to an internet server then it might just be the fact that the server is pure and thus doesn't allowe anything but the original game skins and models
