well, it says that odyssey is an enhanced version of the aurora engine. that does not mean it is a completely different engine. you have to remember JA is supposed to be using an ENHANCED version of the quake 3 engine. but the similarities are there enough that if you knew how to mess around with JO, you knew how to get around in JA as well. especially for something as simple as skins.
i don't want to do a thing with the game code. i just want to play with the skins.
