I too have gone through the tuts and done exactly what it says in them to make a skin as have my friends. None of us have been able to get it to work propperly. The icon would show up but that is all. I do have a suggestion however for the ppl running this webpage whoever you are. As far as the skins that you can download go...you really should seperate the skins by weeks or something like all the old ones make from "April 1, 2002" to "April 30, 2002" and then another place "May 1, 2002 to May 31, 2002." just a thought so its easier seeing the new models and maps. Anyways back to the skinning. Like i said i did everything it said...andit jsut doesnt work. im not worried much about previewing right now i cant ever get the skin to work. I think anyone who truly helps out by basiclly HOLDING someones hand through this pain staking process would be helping the greater community because there will be many more skins out there and some people with Pure talent as far as that actually designing of the skin, not the technical part, are all being held back cus we cant figure out how to zip things up and make them work. After about 10 hours of trying, retrying, and retrying again, im very frustrated with this whole process. Well im tired or writing...and i hope anyone who has figured out how to skin...and i know there are a few of you who KNOW WHAT they are doing..i have i think all the skins that have been posted, please just take the time to hold someones hand through the process to show how to do it...step by step, inch by inch. i know im not the only frustrated person out there that would really enjoy making skins. my email is [email]slugz@attbi.com[/email] if you have the time and desire to help a fello JK2 PLayer out.

Oh as far as the sabers.....why the hell cant they jsut make more options for it instead of scrolling through the colors...why not make it like the skins...and scroll through them all ...all mods of it and keep the regulars there.

Well i appreciate it. Like i said i tried numerous times and i know im not the only one. Just not with it i guess so i do not know what im doing obviously. I can paintbrush all day and night...but i cant make it a working model. :frog: Is what you posted something i need for saber changing? i jsut got it but havent looked so. Anyways like i said b4 should someone help us out...then itll make it more fun for all when we unlock our true skinning inner children HAHAHAHAHA oh thats so bs. anyways....lemme know what yall find out im hoping to see someone make a real program or tut for skinning...the one thats out there doesnt help me much. but maybe thats just me. or maybe its me messing something in placing what files in what zip to turn it into pk3 ah dunno.

hook me back with comments or questions.

I posted the saber tutorial because you said; quoting

About skinning, its really something you have to figure out for yourself. Ill see if i can make a tutorial for that after my mod and my SP Mod Making tutorial.

I guess its kind of my point that making skins isnt something i just can pick up on my own. a little technical help would rock...such as what files are needed to correctly run the PK3...like waht skins do you need in it...and what other files are needed in the .pk3 thats a start. i said b4 that painting can be donea ll day long and that is fine. its the technical stuff. I got as far as renaming some things and make a wrking icon...its just zipping it into a working pk3 file with a sound that i want for a taunt....thats the part i need help.
