i dont have a clue whatsoever. but one thing i've learning being on several forums where you ask for help, TELL what exactly you are doing to do it, and then ask why its wrong.

[hope it made sense, im tired as hell]

my problem is that when i try to use a skin in multi player, it won't allow me to select that skin and just has the normal skin that thiese new ones replace.

They are in the "base" directory that all the tutorials say i should, but to no avail, maybe there is something i am missing, if you know what that is, can you please help me?

i want to use my skins! please help!

Well... let's see if i can get you through this step by step.

1: Open the assets0.pk3 and extract the folder of the model you are skinning.

2: 2 choices here, either you replace the game's skin by just renaming your texture files the same way as the original model files. OR you rename the character's folder name and create new names for your texture files. In this case you'll want to edit the .skin file with the notepad and rename the paths and names of the texture files within.

3: If you want team colors you should copy your model and skin files and rename them. Use the originals as reference.

4: you zip the model's folder and then change the extension to .pk3

5: move the .pk3 to the gamedata folder.

Well that's about it.
Hope i didnt forget anything and i hope it helps ya out.
