Skinning people is a no-no due to the fact that you could use them as cheats ie. It's alot easier to see a lime green character than a normal character.

Most servers run noskins anyway

Skinning weapons is different all you are doing is making an image that you see in 1st person view, the 3rd person view and others is unchanged.

ohhhh, i was looking to make some cool camo, like the new desert pattern,ect.

i only play with me and my friends, plus, just looking for something different to do...

are there any or for the reasons you stated there aren't?

thanks for your help...

at least for LW and TFD and the others im pretty sure the skins are handled client-side meaning noone else will be able to see the skins you use, this could pose an advantage no matter what the intentions of the skins.

by creating skins you also pave the way for cheaters to know how to create fluro green skins or the like

Most servers have the noskins command on and it will boot you if you have something other than NL's skin

ok, i got ya.... i am new to modding and mapping for this game, i rthought both parties had to have it installed to play...

i understand now, thanks!!!

there are ways to mAKE SURE THAT PEOPLE HAVE A MOD INSTALLED <-sorry caps stuckbut it gets complicated as then they have to play in servers that are 'mod enabled' they cant play in any other

ok, thinking about what u said.... is it ok to skin the weapons?
i am building a sniper map and would really like to have a nice camo skin for the rifles... and a nice camo for the caracters but, as you have said, nooo good!!! soo, i would just be happy with the guns...

if that is ok to do, could you help me in a directing as to learn how to do it, tutorials or anything...

thanks again for your help!!! GOOD DAY!!!

which df game?

In LW what you skin is just a tga file that you view in game, you dont notice any difference to anyone else's weapon and noone notices anything different to yours, so according to you you could be shooting a glock 18 when to eveyone else it looks like an M4A1

explain more later as i have to go

SoF Sniper 10-05-2003 02:20 AM

i am sorry, i thought this forum was just for BHD, in which i am making a map for, trying

so, if i made the file and gave it to my friends to install too, they would see it too right?

i only play online with a couple of friends, i dont play with others. also, we only like to play co-op in games, inwhich case i wouldn't wanna cheat, not that i care to cheat in games, after all it is a video game, why cheat? only takes the challenge away!!!??

thanks again....good day!!!

yah we go about 8 uniform skins now...

Exp has a skin for the body its mainly the back pack its a bet bigger and has EXP on it seen it in DF1 if you ask them, and as for DFBHD its being mod enable soon so skins maybe a go for it. it should be use only when other members seen it and there nothen bad about it. that can mark other players in the game to see easyer's to find and kill.

thats looks a bet on the rear side nice work :p

objective force warrior: minus the camel packs..

ATF desert raid:..

nice skins!!!! are there any tutorials out there for me to learn...? thanks

^eATER^DFS 10-15-2003 03:09 PM

but, beside packing and unpacking the skin files(.dds) from resource.pff in your BHD folder. you got to kick butt at photoshop and know how to use layers, filters and effects.

the (.dds) has to be cut and pasted onto new layers so each layer can have different properties.

ex. like the pants for instance. outline them and copy, then make new layer and paste them over where they used to be, then you can apply a cammo filter and the rest of the skin wont get messed up....

there are 100's of things you can do, so reading up on photoshop is a good thing to get at.
