I think the program was called pakscape.

Go to the JA modding forums at filefront. They have a tutorial of how to set up mod view that I used. After that, skin away!
If you want/need a base skin to modify, there is a skin called 'Jedi Supporter' or such on jk3files.

M@RS 06-02-2008 12:23 PM

qhat am I supposed to do then?

katanamaru 06-04-2008 12:29 PM

The tutorial will tell you how to get your skin into Modview. You will have to use an art program to skin whatever model you choose. Save your skin file and view in Modview to see how it will look in game. Repeat as many times as necessary till you get the skin the way you like it.

After you get all that done we will help you get it into a pk3 file if you can't.

How do I view it in modview?

Neon 06-07-2008 08:11 AM

No offense, but can you please ask questions in the general editing on the forum, and post here again when you got something to show?

M@RS 06-07-2008 11:16 AM

I was going to show something but I got stuck, and no one seems to know what was wrong

If you are still stuck with modview not updating/displaying the proper textures, copy paste the content of your .skn file in here.

Also make a printscreen of the character's folder (or type the name of the files in here too).

M@RS 06-09-2008 12:11 AM

I'm horrible with PCs can you tell how to do that? I know enough to be on LF though *shrug*

Psyk0Sith 06-09-2008 08:12 PM

Open the .skn file with notepad and select everything, hit ctrl-c (this will copy the selected text to windows "clipboard") and then hit ctrl-v in your LF message.

M@RS 06-09-2008 08:25 PM

Alright, thanks... I think :)

M@RS 06-09-2008 08:29 PM

Never mind, it was too long

Ah ha! I get it...I got it here...


is this right?

:swear: I still can't view my skin in ModView!

Psyk0Sith 06-11-2008 07:27 PM

That looks about right, it would be easier for me to troubleshoot with the actual pk3. This is for Jedi Outcast correct?

Let's start with the basics, make sure you setup your work directory like this:


Setting up the work path

Since Jk2 is based on the Quake 3 engine, we need to create a base folder to hold the player model.

-So go ahead and create this directory structure:

"c:\base\models\players\"your player model"

-the next step is to add the animation file to:


-Where is the _humanoid.gla file you ask? in the assets0.pk3 file in your gamedata\base folder of JK2, a .pk3 file is a zip file that's been renamed. All you need to is do open it with winzip, find the file _humanoid.gla...just sort the files by type and look for gla you can also extract the .cfg file (animation sequence file). Make sure it's in "base\player\_humanoid".

-I installed the Raven tool kit in c:\base which should give you c:\base\tools

You should now be ready to start your project.

alright I'll get on it, hopefully it will be downloadable by tomorrow, thanks...
