Ok, you know the mods people make where it replaces the Kyle skin with a different skin (ex. kyle gets replaced with Luke). I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to do that. I'd appriciate it. If it's really long winded and you don't fell like typing it, thats cool.:dance:
it depends on what kind of models you want to replace the others with, downloaded or already in the game. E-mail me @ [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email] if you need the info.
open up your game data dir. go to base. all of the assets in that folder are .pk3's. those are extractable with winzip so open with... winzip. extract to wherever you can access it easily. after that the dir. should open up, if not open up the folder that you extracted. in tehre there should be models. open that. from tehre there will be players. open that. then the names of the players are listed. open up a new folder. put in a dir. named models. in models, put in a a new dir called players. in players (refer to the folder(s) you extracted, write the name of the person who's skin andmodel you want to mod. keep 2 windows open. the window with the person you want to mod (the folder you made) and the window with the originl characters in the game (the folder you extracted) now in the folder you extracted under someone's name (lets use luke as an example) you will find a whole lotta pics, and a model.glm file, and also a model_default.skin file. those files show which files to load up as a skin. follow me??? so lets say you want to switch kyle with luke. (play as luke). you would make a kyle subfolder under players in the folder you created. and copy and paste both the model_default.skin and the model.glm from luke or whoever into kyle or whoever. but be warned, doing this will also change kyle's mod in multiplayer. if extra help is needed just e-mail me.
I post to get attention
