How do i use custom Skins?

Postby Orangewaggs » Thu Sep 22, 2016 3:41 pm

Like what the title says, I'm not certain on how to use custom skins...
I have the files they just never work so I'm sure i have to be doing something wrong...?
Or does Zdoom?Gzdoom not support plain old custom skin files and i have been barking up the wrong proverbial tree?
Any help appreciated.

Doom Legacy and ZDoom-style skins can be auto-loaded by being placed in the /skins/ folder inside your ZDoom folder (if it doesn't exist, create it). Skulltag and Zandronum skins are not supported.

What I had to do was find a skin that only worked in Skulltag, change the lump named SKININFO to S_SKIN and get rid of the opening and closing brackets in the same lump mentioned and it worked.

Does this method work in singleplayer with GZDoom? Is there a different method?

There's no reason why it shouldn't, but bear in mind that some mods that replace the player class may not be designed with skins in mind.
