After reading all of the help on multiplayer skins, they all seem to say the same thing....can't do it on a pure server.
In regards to the link on Custom Skinning Tutorial is specifically says is can be done. I run a pure server and have put many .pk3 files in the base dir. When starting the server, the console shows that is sees them.
From the client end, however, I can choose a skin successfully before entering a server, but when joining the server it asks to choose a skin/player and configure force powers. But the list shown are all of the default skins. HELP!
I must note that this is a Team deathmatch server.
One other item, I have forcepowersdisable set to 128 as to eliminate lightning. It works great, but when joining the server, the inital summary screen, you know the first one that shows all the maps and weapons loading, the server name, the players....etc...anyway, it says "No Force Powers" and I beleive it is detering ppl from playing and they are just disconnecting. Any idea there, or just a bug.

The only way custom skins will be considered 'pure' is if they exist in the server host's 'GameData/base' directory. If they aren't there, then you cannot play as them.
oops.. hehehehe.. didn't understood your post the first time, sorry :D
