USING DOWNLOADED SKINS...

    Hello... I play UT2004 on a Dedicated Server, my.gameservers.com. I was thrilled when I found the "Skin City" site, and I have downloaded a few skins (Ghost, Xan, and others...)

    Step by step, this is what I do....

    1) I stop my server.

    2) I open up SmartFTP and link to my server

    3) I unzip the file and place the .u and .utx files in their necessary placements within UT2004

    4) I restart my server.

    Here is my dilemma... I have the ability from my server to choose to add, say for instance, "Ghost" as he now appears in my server, however, when I am playing in the game with Ghost as a Bot, it reverts back to the usual default character... in other words, the name above the head is Ghost, but the player looks like "Jakob."

    Second, I don't know how to be able to select the skin in order to PLAY as that individual. I go to my Settings screen in UT2004, click the Player tab, go to Change Character, and all I have available are the default characters. How can I find the skin of the character that I have dowloaded and uploaded to my server in order to play with that character...?

    I know this must be a NOOB question, however, I have searched and searched and read and read re-reread all the threads, and all I am able to come up with is rather vague information about how I am able to accomplish the above... If anyone can help, it would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    Have you included the characters on the "serverpackage=" list from your server's UT2004.ini?

    (as far as I recall)

    Hi Kantham... I appreciate your reply. I remember having placed that text in a file somewhere, but now I can not find it in any of the files. What is the text that I should place in the UT2004.ini file again...? Thanks!
    Also, is there any other editing that I need to do to other files, Kantham? I appreciate your help...! Mike
