The SO Crow skin is on the top downloads of the week appearently because there is a CRC problem in the zip, so people keep re-downloading it in an attempt to download the file (BTW, you can download the skin with no errors here).

My personal opinion is, it's ok, nothing great. It's a decent looking skin, but I don't think it's anything worth having, but I wanted to know if you guys feel the same way, so this poll is on whether or not it should be added to Duelers, but that's not the question I want you to ask yourself though, I want you to ask yourself is... 1) Would you use this skin? 2) Would you like to see others using this skin?

I like that skin lol :rolleyes: , now seriously i just made that skin because i like "The Crow" character and i dont think there will be too many ppl using it they may feel it looks cool or something but "The Crow" is not that popular so...., anyway if u want to use my skin for Duelers u have my permission. :D Ive already uploaded the third one which is my favourite one though not very different from that in the pic.

Cool, it's good to get the permissions out of the way. I haven't taken a look at the ski myself, but in case you didn't do any custom sounds I will if I have either one of the Crow movies. I don't personally like the skin all that much, don't get me wrong, it's not bad, but it's not all that great either, so this one here is a public vote. I may extend the poll onto the DarkSide & JKII.net forums as well.

doesn't reap mean like to take it vigoriously? I'll look it up

Reap:

  • To cut (grain or pulse) for harvest with a scythe, sickle, or reaper.
  • To harvest (a crop).
  • To harvest a crop from: reaping a field.
  • [color=red]To obtain as a result of effort: She reaped large profits from her unique invention.[/color]

also,are you making a skin pack for the duelers mod because if you aren't, it's gonna bea chunkof a download, and people might also have the skins and why bother down loading them again? expecially if you're on a 56k ; )

Reap as in the grim reaper, when he comes for you you get reaped.

The skin add-on packs are large yes, but they are 2/3s less the filesize of the original, plus these have tons of fixes on the skins, more sounds, bot emotional attachments the way they are supposed to be, & as for the duplicate files, this thing will have an installer, if you choose to use the skins it *can* move the old files to a subfolder in base, that way there are no duplicates.

The reskins (with no sounds) were even less than that in filesize. In Pack A (which comes with Duelers Full), I have 27 skins ( not including the 7 hidden skins that are now unhidden), multiple taunts for almost every single character & the whole thing is 7.37 megs. So it's not bad at all for what you are getting. I still may add some more sounds & skins yet, but for now I am concentrating on the add-on packs. I already have most of the skin texture work done, I am currently going through the sounds (ie, removing background noises, making sure everything is mono as it is supposed to be as the game makes it stereo & individual sounds themselves are to be 1 channel only, etc; etc.). I am moving next month & if I don't get this done soon I may never get to release it. It's tough to do a project like this all by yourself, but for now I am just concentrating on getting it out the door.

All of the skins in here have to have "standards", almost everything Duelers does. All the hilts in the hilt pack were re-exported to make sure they all use the same saber blade position, before with JediMod based mods, certain hilts were longer than others which gave the weilder an unfair advantage, that element is removed with Duelers hilts. Some of the red & blue skins have to be modified or removed if they are not red or blue enough.

As for 56k'ers, it sucks to be one of you guys; Gaming is hard any way you look at. Now while the add-on packs are very large files, there are allot of things you get with these packs you just can't get anywhere else. The whole "I wish I had his skin" thing is cut down big time, I did certain modifications to some skins that I think everyone will enjoy & you can not get anywhere but here. Again, the filesize is also 2/3s less than the originals, so if you don't have that many skins, here's something you can download for a large variety of skins. I am sure most 56k'ers will be content with skin pack A for awhile though.
