This thread is to show How to import and export skins using Half-Life Model Viewer v1.25

1 down load Half-Life Model Viewer v1.25
link: http://www.milkshape3d.com/

2. use program to load model MLD

3. after loading model click texture
and click the skin map you want to export
http://img232.echo.cx/my.php?image=21pg.jpg

4. use a program to open and re edit any skin witch is in
256 color when you are in psp 8 or adobe then convert it to jepeg to edit the skin if you do not follow this step you will not be able to use some colors.
do not change the size of the picture or when you finish the edit you will get a error even if its off by a hair.

5. after you redo the skin map you need to convert it back to 256.
i used a program call becker draw. if you do not convert it back to 256
the skin map u just did will save as you did all your work in 256 :(

6. when you convert the skin back to 256 color import them back to where you exported them out of then there you go you have have just re-edited a skin.

If theres more links that i missed or didnt add please post them and ill add them to the links i have already posted.

many people know about this but some dont so here is for the people that want to learn how to do this plus its 6:51 am here when i did this and im bored so thought i would lend a hand out to em..
this should be added as a sticky or put into another sticky for people that want to get started with skining or just re-doing them

ps. would have put more pic's showing how to do it but i just resoted my comp and lost every thing and i dont even have half life install right now. please dont flame this thread for some thing like a two year old could do i did it for the people who are new to esf and want to add there own touches to the skins
