OK, I've changed the pcx files into utx ones. I've created another file Female1Skins_drl.utx so I don't overwrite the original. Now what do I do?

well now you create an .int file that is the EXACT same name as your .utx file. Now in that file write the line "Object=(Name=Female1Skins_drl.X,Class=Texture)"

Now where the X is, that is where you put the name of the skin at. That should do it. just look for it in the game.

Infiltration also uses the gamespy forums, so my posts carried over from there

Darkleige, you knew how to use custom skins, that's something I never knew. And I'm gonna end up adding that to the list of stuff that will be added to the FAQ. And credit will be given where due /~unreal/ubb/html/smile.gif

I meant in general, you guys know more than me. Since skin and texture creation and editing is what i do in my free time, its just natural that i must know. Hell, i don't even know how to make a mover loop or use most triggers.

What program(s) do you recommend for skins, weapons, etc.? I looked at 3D Studio Max - very expensive...what are your thoughts?

There are always ways around pricetags. For instance if you're honest and a college student go to www.edu.com. (http://www.edu.com.) They've got some good deals if you make the qualifications. On the other hand if you want a copy of 3d Studio Max I can help in that department. Albeit you officially throw all morals out the window.

Textures I'ld look for a program that will let you tile the picture and edit like that (ie: a 9 image tiled so that when you edit one all of them are effect, ala Wally).

Wally is a decent free paint program. Intended mostly for Half Life and Quake2 but it works in a pinch.

Jasc Print Shop Pro 6 has a lot of good features but the lack of the ability to tile the image kinda hurts for knowing if a texture will tile properly.

I don't know about Adobe Photoshop is a program I've only dabbled with in the distant past so whatever I know is very likely to old or non-existant.

even paint shop pro 6 works descently. you can get a 30 day free trial with all the functions working. then if you're a good little boy or girl then you have to buy it, but if you're not then take it out of the registry. i think that would work.

Thank you for your candid comments...I've very new to Skins and Unreal Script (for lack of a better term). I write programs for a living, but this language is taking me quite a bit of time to get used to...

I've been through the tutorials, but I want to know the code to the point where I KNOW what everything is doing.

Thank you once again!
