    Getting skins to work online is not as easy. AFAIK there must be a certain .u-file written to do that. This problem has been discussed here

    There are many different mods available, maybe this thread helps you

    For the availability of skins, there are many sites providing them, but SkinCity is definitaly the best of them IMO

    Sorry don`t have msn.

    What part exactly is unclear?

    Ok, I`ll try again, getting skins working for online play is not as easy, if the skinner/modeller has not included the discussed stuff in the linked topic above, (in most cases) default models will be used or UT2003/4 simply doesn`t startup the server.

    In the second part I`ve linked to a thread providing some nice mods with downloadlinks, simply check them out ;)

    Ok, here`s an example:

    Some time ago I made a skinpack
    Someone tried to start a server using this skinpack
    It didn`t work due the files were missing (I didn`t know that they are needed)

    Afterwards, klasnic helped me out and wrote that mod-files for me.

    If you want to take a look at the files, they have been added to the review.
    They are attached to the the review, such files are needed to get a skin work online AFAIK.

    I am moving this discussion to SkinCity.

    Please use the appropriate forum for your discussions, sgt lazy crash. The BeyondUnreal forum is for suggestions, comments, and questions about the site itself. Every forum has a description on the main index to give you an idea of what are the appropriate topics for each.

    In order for someone to address your question, I think you may need to clarify what you are asking. Using proper words will go a long way towards that.

    I think you are asking how to install skins. Is that correct? Be aware that online, your skin will only be visible to you unless:

    1) The server you are on has them installed by default (unlikely)
    2) Someone else has the same skin installed (more likely). In that case, they will see your skin.

    If someone does not have the skin you are using, the game will show them a default skin.

    If you want to start a server providing your dragon skin/model you`ll definitaly have to find someone beeing familiar in writing the ceratin-mod files.

    If you want to join a game on a server, I think these files are also needed, so other players can get that skins.
    But some servers force the default models beeing used anyways to hinder players using skins for cheating (for instance the very funny guys making totally invisible skins)

    EDIT:
    Nothing to add to Hal`s 2 points

    In most cases authors of skins/models/maps/etc. include a textfile with some additional information like contacting possibilities if you have questions concerning their work

    If you know the filename of the skin , or the name of the skin ,post it here and I can see , if I have the read-me .

    But as MäxX posted , the read-me should be delievered with the skin .

    Or are you talking about a model created by Hide ? (Dragon of Metal) .

    Personally I don`t keep the readmes because I remember the author in most cases. I suggest you make a certain folder to keep the readmes if you need them.

    The readme does nothing than providing some additional information you might need for usage of the skin/model
