i read the skinning toturial at jk2files.com and it says i have to change the file from a .zip file to a .pk3 file so i can share the skin online. how do i change the file extension from a .zip file to a .pk3 file?
i dont know im haveing troubl with that myself:confused: :uhoh:
plus does anyone know how people made skins of anikin and darth maul?
when making a skin and you wanna pack it up into a pk3 do this
right click on the model folder which has all your stuff in it, mouse-over the winzip thing, and click add to zip (look at picture for more info)
then just look at the pic i placed underneath this line of text, check the same boxes and type the same thing in the path thing, but remember, my skin is named leroy, just name your skin whatever you want it.
thanks but when i put the pk3 fie u showed me how t make, on my friends computer(under the Gamedata\base folder) it didn't work. the skin woulnt show up under where u pick ur skin(in a created server for multiplayer) ps. the server we created was a non pure server(all the other downloaded skins worked but not the one i made) can someone tell me why?
did it work on your comp?? if not then check the icon image file you might have named it incorrectly, also if it's a normal skin with no teamcolors then don't use a teambased game variant cause your skin won't work or be selectable, also make sure when trying to select it that it clearly states default as teamcolor or it won't work
the skin works on my computer(not the pk3 file, just editing it), but when i make it into a pk3 file and put it in my friends "base" folder it will not show up in multiplayer. P.S. i tried it with FFA with no teams and is not a pure server
the pk3 file (skin) won't work on my computer either help
