Hello all!

I myself, am not new to Jedi Academy our Jedi Outcast infact I'm not new to Star Wars in general... Recently I've decided to take on a project involving a few skins. Now typically I can do pretty well on my own and edit a few things with just NotePad and MS Paint (suprisingly I know it is). This project though is this; Take the single player skins that are not availible to be played in Multi player and make them so. Give team skins, bots support, and icons that look like all the rest. Icons for me, no trouble. Bot support no trouble. Team skins, no trouble at all. Default skin...difficult

These skins are a bit differnt from what I usually work with. As an example, the Reborn Twin Boss, the grey one, I have an icon and bot support as well as sounds.

So what I am asking is, how might I go about making a default skin for this bloke??:confused:

If you are making it separate from other skins (such as the other reborn_twin skins) then you would probably make the model_default.skin file read reborn_twin/arms.tga , torso_boss, etc and don't put a model_blue or red in there. Same with having more than one, just have the model_default read reborn_twin/(whatever the name of part is). Note: The reborn twin skin comes with the model_default.skin file so you should take it out if separate, or just delete all the extra stuff (red,blue skins, and the normal default skin). Gl :cya:

Alright well I have it working, sort of. When I loaded the game I have no icon in the player menu. When in an actual game, I type in "model players reborn_twin/boss" in order to access it like it is from the game and vwala, there it is but it has the icon I gave it instead of the usual no icon. It seems to work just fine just I can't seem to enable the icon to show up in the player menu. Any thoughts on this?:confused:

Oh and thank you for the help the last time, I hope someone else or you can help me out this time. As soon as I understand this with the Reborn Twin Boss I can manage to get all the others just fine, they're the exact same problem...:)

You need to name the icon picture "icon_default", it should be in the same folder as the skin textures.
