Just made this for ppl that need help with skinning http://www.mediafire.com/file/dnb63q49nsbifni/My%20Skin%20tutorial.txt
First you're going to need gimp. Also you will need:
SWBF1 Modding LVL Builders Toolbox 2.0.
First opoen up your gimp so you will have it ready. I
recoomend Gimp 2.6.10 so it will be easy for me to tell
you. So after you have your gimp open, open up the
toolbox. Click the 1.2 side builders for SWBF1. click
what Team you want to edit: ALL(reb),CIS,IMP, or REP.
Click Sides,then click that team you're editing,MSH,
Then fine a file that look's like this:all_1st_inf_wookie
(that is a rebel class)of a troop that is a TGA. file, drag the
file into the gimp box. Once you have that done You will
see alot of parts to the class including: arms,legs,chest.
Then with gimp use the paintbucket, pencil, or paintbrosh
to skin the troop. Once you have finished editing, go up
to file and click save as,click save,click replace,
and UNCLICK: RLE Compression. Then exit out of gimp and go
back in the side builders to you fine the screen that says
_BUILD_PC,_LVL_PC, and all that. Go down to munge ALL and
click that, wait for it to munge, then go into
_LVL_PC/(Youre team)/ and copy that file of which team
you picked. go into your file location for SWBF, click
gamedata,data,_LVL_PC,SIDE, and paste what team you
edited: CIS,REP,ALL,or IMP. paste it in there. Now you
should have your skin!
