    Open up unrealED, find the player skin packages in the texture browser window and export a texture u want to edit. I think it exports to .dds image files so your going to need a plugin from www.udn.epicgames.com for adobe photoshop.

    All this info was off the top of my head but im sure most of it is correct, hope it helps, is0s

    Or put in the 3rd disk from the game and go to the Extras folder where you'll find the original skin art all ready to go in PNG format :)

    When you're done editing the skin you'll need to know how to put it back into the game. First, install UPaint so you can check out how your skin looks on a model before adding it to the game. Also, head HERE to download the update to UPaint, it makes the process for adding skins a lot better (the old version adds everything to a single UPaint skins package, whereas the updated version creates a seperate package for each new skin you create).

    To use UPaint, just open the program, open the model for the skin you've created and import both the head and body skins. Then save the model with a new name - this will be the name your character will have in the game - and then Export character to UT2003 from the file menu. Easy as pie :)

    If you'd like to know what goes into adding a skin and the files you need to create to do it manually, head over to Loric's Tutorial for info on that.

    Hope that helps :)

    Thanks alot dudes :) cant thank you enough :D

    One problem I am having with Upaint is that when I save a model it seems to sit there for ages and eventualy does not respond.

    Any idea why?
