    :confused:

    Where did you make the skin? In Upaint? Simply press "Export To Unreal" and you should be fine.

    open UEdit.
    create a new package and import your texture files. then save it. thats the utx-file.

    Check out the upl-tut for hints in writing the upl-file

    good luck and happy skinning

    I suggest you copy Romulus` values out of the xplayers.upl file and enter your values.

    uhm, moment I have the upl here

    *copy*

    *paste*

    *minorchanges*


    Player=(DefaultName="YourSkinsName",Race="Mercenary",Mesh=HumanMaleA.MercMaleB,
    species=xGame.SPECIES_Merc,BodySkin=YourUTX.TextureName,FaceSkin=YourUTX.TextureName,
    Portrait=YourUTX.TextureName,Text=YourTextFile.Text,Sex=Male,Menu="SP",Accuracy=-0.3,Aggressiveness=+0.25,
    CombatStyle=+0.2,Tactics=+0.5,StrafingAbility=+0.7,FavoriteWeapon=xWeapons.FlakCannon)


    Hope this helps

    Make sure all is written in "a row" with no spaces between lines (sometimes notepad does such things

    There should be a utx-file called Whelk.utx with the textures called "Body" "Head" and "Portrait". Looks like UT can`t load one of the 3.

    Ah wait a second, I got it

    Player=(DefaultName...

    ;)

    small cause big effect ;)

    EDIT:
    That`s strange, looks like one of the textures can`t be loaded

    Try to copy that text into your upl (is public tag there??):

    Code:
    [Public]
    Player=(DefaultName="Harry",Race="Mercenary",Mesh=HumanMaleA.MercMaleB,species=xGame.SPECIES_Merc,BodySkin=Whelk.Body,FaceSkin=Whelk.Head,Portrait=Whelk.Portrait,Sex=Male, FavoriteWeapon=xWeapons.SniperRifle,Jumpiness=0.2,CombatStyle=0.1,Tactics=1,Aggressiveness=0.3,Accuracy=1,StrafingAbility=0.5,ReactionTime=1,BotUse=1,Menu="",Text="Name: Harry|Age: 21|Race: Human||Data:||Harry likes to snipe his victims from a safe distance.||")

    What are the shaders, diffuse, opacity, specular, specularly mask, and self illumination for? Is this the cause?

    If the settings remain unchanged they shouldn`t cause bad effects
