Default I did it!! Here\'s how to modify the skins!

OK folks here's what you need to do!! First you need to do a full install of the game. Then you need to find the C:\Program Files\Ritual Entertainment\Heavy Metal - FAKK2\fakk\pak0.pk3 file. There are others but we'll use this for the example. Double click on the icon and windows will bring up a screen asking which program you want to open it with. Pick Winzip and unzip the file. You should end up with a pak0 folder. Go in this folder and find C:\unzipped\pak0\models\players\newjulie\julie1_sk in2.ftx file. This is the lower torso of Julie after she enters the lower city to fix the generator. Use the ftx to tga converter to change it to something you can use. Use your favorite graphic editing program to modify the skin. Try writing your name across her butt. Save the tga file as a 32-bit graphic. Use the tga to ftx converter on the targa file. Replace the modified file to where you got it from in the unzipped pak0 folder. Right click on the pak0 folder and choose the "add to zip" icon. When you zip it up, make sure you change the .zip extension to .pk3 before you start the compression prosess. Now simply replace the old pak0.pk3 file with yours and your name will appear with all it's glory on Julie's butt when you play the game. I suggest you make back ups of the original files before replacing any. I'll be making a web site soon so if you're missing any tools or have questions you'll find the tools and a better explantion in a skin modification kit I'll throw together for download. I'll post the address as soon as it's up.

Thanks guys, all in good time though. It'll take me to about Sat or Sun to get the site up and a skin that I'm happy with. I don't put out trash or half done garbage. I only post skins that I'm really satisfied with. That takes time. I promise that It'll be something else once it's done though!!

Just go to the directory with the skins and click view on your tool bar. Select arrange icons and then arrange by type. All the files should go to the top. They will all be there.

You could just unzip that one file and then put the replacement in a new .pk3 file.

Does this mean you can do like Quake, and just zip the modifiesd skin and save it the game directory as a pk3 file. With the appropriate path and name of course.
