I'm editing the imperial sabotuer and i got all the jpg files next to the mdl file and .skin file i got from assets1. When i try to open it in mod view it dosnt work; it says missing sabotuer_legs in the sabotuer folder but i renamed the folder to my new skins name. And all the files it says its missing are tga when my skins files are jpg. Could someone help me out?

It is probably that but I have come across that error and couldn't fix it no matter what I did so I just saved the texture as .tga like it asked. Oh and why is there an mdl file?

There should be a file in your folder called [COLOR=Red]"model default.skin"[/COLOR]. Open that with a program like notepad or any oter text editor (microsoft word isn't that good for it). You will come to this:

[COLOR=Navy]hips,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_legs.tga torso,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_torso.tga torso_lower,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_torso_lower.tga head,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_head.tga head_teeth,models/players/rebel_pilot/teeth.tga head_plate_off,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_face_plate.tga head_mouth,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_face.tga head_face,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_face.tga head_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_arm,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_arms.tga r_hand,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_hands.tga r_hand_cap_r_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_arm_cap_r_hand_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_arm_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_arm,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_arms.tga l_hand,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_hands.tga l_hand_cap_l_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_arm_cap_l_hand_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_arm_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_head_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_r_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_l_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_hips_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_leg,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_legs.tga r_leg_cap_hips_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_leg,models/players/saboteur/saboteur_legs.tga l_leg_cap_hips_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga hips_cap_l_leg_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga hips_cap_r_leg_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga hips_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga[/COLOR]

You want it to look like this:

[COLOR=Navy]hips,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_legs.tga torso,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_torso.tga torso_lower,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_torso_lower.tga head,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_head.tga head_teeth,models/players/rebel_pilot/teeth.tga head_plate_off,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_face_plate.tga head_mouth,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_face.tga head_face,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_face.tga head_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_arm,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_arms.tga r_hand,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_hands.tga r_hand_cap_r_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_arm_cap_r_hand_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_arm_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_arm,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_arms.tga l_hand,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_hands.tga l_hand_cap_l_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_arm_cap_l_hand_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_arm_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_head_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_r_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_l_arm_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga torso_cap_hips_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga r_leg,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_legs.tga r_leg_cap_hips_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga l_leg,models/players/YOUR_SKIN_NAME/saboteur_legs.tga l_leg_cap_hips_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga hips_cap_l_leg_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga hips_cap_r_leg_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga hips_cap_torso_off,models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga[/COLOR]

YOUR_SKIN_NAME being what you named your folder.

You don't need to change the [COLOR=Red]"models/players/stormtrooper/caps.tga"[/COLOR] in any skin you decide to do.
