When you are using a custom skin isn't there any way for you to choose a different default skin (instead of Gorge) for the people who don't have your skin downloaded to see?

I thought that the 2225 patch gave you the option of picking a few different default skins:

- allow several different default characters. Change the default character by adding the following line to the [xGame.xPawn] section of your user.ini file: PlacedCharacterName="aname" where aname can be "Gorge" (the default), "Sapphire", "Malcolm". "Mokara", "Rapier", "Brutalis", or "Roc"

But I tried this and I still came up as Gorge to people who didn't have the skin I was using. Is this just to determine the default skin I see when I don't have someone else's custom skin downloaded?

I think it's a server setting. The server can decide it... I think

Yeah, I don't think you could change it client side. If it is even possible it would probably have to be the server.

The easy solution is just tell everyone what skin you're using so they can download... What skin is it anyways? I have damn near every single model and skin downloaded just to make sure I don't see Gorge.. And I like custom models and skins anyways. It's always funner fragging Christmas Homer, Wolverine, Bender and Spider-man than Gorge or Remus :D

There's a problem with team games as far as the Marvel Batman goes, he looks like he's on the blue team all the time.

He's got shoulder lights but they're not bright enough.

And don't use the Storm Trooper, all that white makes you stick out like a sore thumb.

What skins do you have loaded Flame, link them and I'll load them.

I've already got the Necris skin pack but that's all, however I do have most of the Models.

That's a big problem with a lot of models and skins, no Team Colors support... That's why I stick to default models when I am playing CTF.

You hear that skinners and modelers??? We want CTF skins included with EVERY model!!!! :D

I've made upwards of 15 skins, all of which have team skins :) I really should get round to releasing some of them soon I guess :lol:

Teamskins are easy enough to add to a skin, it's just an extra couple of images in the .utx!
So when i play with my custom skin all people see is Gorge? How embarassing!..............

I'd upload it but i don't know if the face can be changed for different teams?

No, face skins aren't changed according to team.

Holy Hijack batman...

That setting Flame, was designed so that people could pick a more visible default skin for them to see as a client. Basically it's supposed to replace all the default gorges with what you pick for you to see. I haven't gotten it to work. It's a bit of an answer to the DM skins prob.

MULTI-THREADING HIJACK!

Scum, one thing about unliscenced KISS likenesses... KISS usually doesn't care. When I met Gene Simmons, I was wearing a custom ari-brushed t-shirt with his face on it... he took hold of it, turned to one of the people there that worked for him and said "look at that shirt... that is a GREAT shirt"

Good for them. After all, it's free advertisement (Marvel should take a lesson ;) ).

Wouldn't that be funny as heck?!? Seeing a model of Richard Simmons running around in a little pink spandex outfit with leg warmers and liitle white sneakers, big freaking afro hair, and doing some prissy dance when he killed someone!

Oh, and the final touch - if you could find some audio clips of him. Imagine him fragging someone, then skipping way yelling "I'm a pony, I'm a pony!"

:lol:

As I understood, its to be used with force default models.

set UnrealGame.DeathMatch bForceDefaultCharacter True

Turn it off again with:

set UnrealGame.DeathMatch bForceDefaultCharacter False

Some players I talked to could ONLY get this to work if they
typed it on the console and hit enter - if they added it manually
to the ini or bind it to a key it did not work

It works fine for me though even if I bind it, maybe this was only
a problem in the earlier patches?

After turning it on, you can switch the model with one of the
following lines:

set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Gorge
set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Sapphire
set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Malcolm
set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Mokara
set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Rapier
set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Brutalis
set xGame.xPawn PlacedCharacterName Roc

So after you do this, everybody will look like whatever
model you choose, like Gorge, nice and easy to hit :p

From what I've seen, the forcedmodels can only be the ones listed above. The other models included in the game aren't even an option (like Lauren) but I haven't tested it to make sure.

That option doesn't work with custom-skins ... it really is hardcoded to those options (I guess they wanted to avoid big yellow Syzygy as an option ...)

Once you get it, let us know. I'm make sure I have it downloaded.

DaBeat, well, he said that he would if there was enough interest... the Gene model was made back in 1999, and I haven't found any evidence of the rest of them.

here are pix if you want to do it. To tell you the truth, I could really do without the wings on the back and the wings on the boots. I bet the model would look better, and be a better model for play without all the wings.

Also, some care would have to taken for the team colors... I don't think those shoulder pads would be enough. It would probably need Red and Blue on the legs for teamgames, but I'll trust your judgement on that.

These are all the pix I have, there were supposed to be 8 pix alltogether, but the website 404'd on 4 of them

Isn't that default character thing just for what model you see when people are wearing a custom skin you don't have?

Loibisch
5th Jan 2004, 07:19 PM
To use that feature you'll have to do two things:

UT2003.ini
[UnrealGame.DeathMatch]
bForceDefaultCharacter=True

User.ini
[xGame.xPawn]
PlacedCharacterName="*"
where * can be "Gorge", "Sapphire", "Malcolm", "Mokara", "Rapier", "Brutalis", or "Horus".

It will then change ALL other players' models to the selected character model.
That's it :)

btw you can force the game so you only see one model for everybody
