hey i have aquestion i've been meaning to ask but never got around to it. I just downloaded the night elf model, i installed it properly and everything, but when i started up multiplayer and went to select the model, it wasn't there no picture or anything. this also happened to me with goreld's ( i hope i spelled it right) royal guard model, and i never got it working. so my question is, can anyone help me get these models to work? the both look so cool and i can't use em! it's driving me nuts!

make sure the night elf pk3 is in your base folder.
i just d/led it off jkii.net and put it into my base folder and it works in MP just fine.

Yeah, it could be too many files in your folder, or one is set to take the place that the night elf should be in. I dled it and put it in and it works fine for me, so like it was already suggested, take some files out of your folder (i'm sure you have at least some that are unecessary).

Your folder was full? Wow, what the heck did you have in there? Anyway, glad it's working now. Have fun, that model is pretty sweet.

I didn't even think there was a limit... but since I guess there is, I would like to know what it is myself.

it isnt a folder limit, its a skin limit, the icon bar can only have a maximum of 99 icons in it, and if you go to the coding board, u will see that there are posts asking people to help on projects to fix that problem.

Why would you even NEED 100 or more models/skins? I can only think of maybe 10 or so I see people using.
