i'm trying to get my head around the skin files that control which textures are applied to md3 models. i've been trying to modify angelyss's skin files but i can't seem to get any results. i took pak2-players-mature.pk3/models/players/angelyss/head_default.skin and modified it to this-
Code:
h_face,models/players/hnt/clothes.tga

h_hair,models/players/hnt/hair.tga

h_clothes,models/players/hnt/clothes.tga



tag_head

and then put it the folder system of /models/players/angelyss, made a pk3 called v-angelyss.pk3 to override the previous pk3s and dropped it in baseoa. i was expecting angelyss's face to now be skinned with the clothes texture, but everything was the same as before. i really can't spot what i've done wrong.

it would be really great if someone could download the pk3 from this page, take a look at it and figure out what i've done wrong, because i really don't have a clue.

also, i have another question. how does the game know which skin files to apply to a certain md3 model?

hyperfocus the angelyss model is special in that the lower.skin file is basically the entire model

asking when OA3 will be done won't get OA3 done.
Progress of OA3 currently occurs behind closed doors alone

I do not provide technical support either.
