Please make sure you're following ALL the instructions on the [wiki]Skybox[/wiki] and [wiki]GLDEFS[/wiki] wiki pages. Notably you should only be using one method: Either the "real" skybox (using a cube sector with a skybox viewer), or the OpenGL skybox (textures only defined in the GLDEFS lump). Also, post your code or no one will be able to help you.
