View Full Version : Getting skins to work

None of the skins I've downloaded ever appear in multiplayer games - I only see the base skin (one of the original set). why is this and how can i correct it.

You have to join a server that has the skins too.

Ok, this is probably in the wrong forum, but I'll throw an answer anyway. :D

First, it's because you can only use whatever pk3 files the server has. If you try using something the server doesn't use, it just won't let you. Because of that, there's nothing *you* can do to fix it...it's a server issue. A lot of servers are now using other skins...though, seems the only one I ever see is like, the first Maul skin that came out the day after the game was released.

Unfortunately, I don't know one offhand that has them...but often you'll be able to see server names that say "latest skins here!" or some such...those servers tend to have lots of them enabled.

A couple darkside duel servers have skins.
The admin mentioned that he tries to get any and all available skins as well as maps. Made for a great change of pace to get to play on different levels on some VERY well made maps.
