    I recently tried to install several custom models for UT3, and now the included models for the krall, necris and Liandri robots all use the default human male model.

    I attempted to reinstall the game, but this has not corrected the problems, or removed most of the custom models. All the custom models still show, though some (like Hel) no longer animate.

    I installed Jessica, Jade Cat, Warhammer 40K, Rodents Faction, Desert Falcon Unit and Hel models without issue, however Nyota and others have caused this issue, and I'm at a loss on how to fix it at this point.

    Have you tried to delete your customchar.ini?
    When you start the game, UT3 will generate a new one.

    I agree with Slaughter, but I don't see how re-installing would stop some of the models from animating, because all of the files required for the model are stored in My Documents/My Games/Unreal Tournament 3/ ect.

    By any chance did you install UT3 to a different directory from before or anything like that, because maybe that would affect it?

    I deleted the customchar.ini, and started the game, everything looked fine.

    Attempted to reinstall one of the models that worked right, and all of them appeared on the map. The custom models move around the map, but are not animated. Liandri, Krall, and Necris models have all defaulted again.

    I'm following the same install instructions that allowed it to work before, and have no idea what might be happening.

    Anytime I reinstall, it's always to the default directories.

    It is patched, current version is 1.2

    Update: I have run the patch again. Custom models are working, but I'm back to Krall, Necris, and Liandri defaulting again.

    Sorry to be a pain, but I do appreciate the help with this.
