    What he means is that textures for the xbox are in a direct draw suface format that is not one of the 3 levels that UT2004 uses. Photoshop should be able to open them and can re-save them as anothe format. TGA(targa) works well, but photoshop doesn't always like to save into certain formats from other formats, which means its likely that the DDS files are palletized.

    However being as epic/atari/midway have not given their permission to use their assets for another game then they are not really useable, legally.

    So *IF* someone manages to get permission, will the skins look exactly like XBOX's?

    The skins themselves yes, but that would also require making models with the same geometry and uv layout. So technically if someone got permission from midway/epic/atari to use those textures for ut2004, then yes it could be done, though all told it would be easier to simply try and convince MEA to just make a ut2004 port on a default skeleton since they have the base files to run through actorx anyway.

    I definately have the knowledge, but not the time at present.

    The other thing is that without express permission from the owners of the Intelectual property its not really legal.
    Being as I'd like to work for epic one day I'd rather not chance pissing them off. ;) However I do plan to continue the UC2 skinpack, and possibly include some models as well. But that will be a little ways off. Have gargoyle to animate and other sundry tasks to finish first.
