This is my first post but I have had convos with people concerned with skinning on line and have read many tutes and websites about skinning. All that I can say is thank you all for your part in sharing your love for this craft. I might have spent a lot of time spinning my wheels had it not been for the game and Internet commune holding me up right.
I do have two… well one skin completed, for UT GOTY Edition. He is Xstar and based on the Male Soldier with a Samurai Warrior theme. He is my first and I am thrilled with the results. The second is based on the SoldierGirl and is just evil to the core.
Well, I have read about how to write the .utx and the .int file but I’ll be danged if I know what to do with them after that!!! And I’m guessing that they have to be written in note pad, but then what. I used SkinMaker to auto compile and install Xstar in the game but he came out all washed out in color. I blame that on the SMaker proggy but other then that this is a great program! I would rather NOT use the U2 Editor I have my troubles with that one and have heard it is bad bad bad. Ok there ya have it. If you can help me install my skins I will be happy but in addition, can you tell me how easy it might be to post a thumb here so you can see my work? Ok… enough post soon I’ll be back tonight or tomorrow. For now back to my skinz!
L8R, Xstar
P.S. I'm going to try to post a pic! here goes!

Hi Xstar ,

there are two ways you can post pics .

The first is showing the pics in originalsize , but you need to have a webpage to host them.
The second is to attach them as Thumbnails.

Thanks SaD for the help in your reply. I hope that I get some bites on my installing the skinz. I have directions for the scripts I just need to know where to put them. ok I'll try to attach a thumb of my work. Well wait a min maybe I have to read it somewhere here but how small a file are we talking about for a thumbnail? I'm going to try under 100KB We'll see....
I hope :D
L8R,
Xstar :cheers:

Welp I tried to send attached and under 100KB Maybe they are there but I don't see them! :angst++:

Hi ,
100 KB should be ok . Have you clicked the manage attachments ?
After that the upload-button.
You should close the uploadwindow after uploading the pic.
Your pic is now attached.

Ok then...I went to advanced message to respond to this. Next I will drop down to the "Manage Attachments" to attach the pics...I browsed and then uploaded two pix for a total of 194.1KB.(95.5+98.5KB) Both files show up in the "Attach Files" box below this where I am typing.
I know it probly should'nt matter but I turned off my fire wall(ZAPro) first
then at the bottom of the page I hit "Submit Reply"
Actually I selected a "Post Icon" first then hit submit! ;)
ok here goes and if this doesn't work Hell I don't know!! I'll send them to you SaD and have you try it!!

Thanks for your patience, it really is worth the wait!!

Thanx for the help Slaughter! I have no Idea what the prob was at the forum but I will give the other place a try. I really would like to get some feedback on my work. I 'll work it out with a little help from my friends :D
BTW Any help for me on putting my skin in to the game. This is the tut I am working with the most and I guess I will not be able to avoid using the UTEditor,

It was fun trying to read through the Swedish or German what ever it is that the website is hosted by!! :lol:

Anyway if ya have any critz I can use please post. If you just don't like my work tell me why. I hope to have Xevil done soon and both installed in UT.
I don't think that I will be able to get around using UREditor though Huh?

Thanx again for all your help SaD and TheSlaughter.
