Hi guys, I have a problem with skins
« on: April 11, 2017, 04:16:21 PM »
Since I played one day on the Fox server, and the admin changed my skin I have a problem to choose skins in any xatrix mod server.

On xatrix servers I only have 3 skins to choose from: a bull, "debbie" and another character. All my other skins disappear.

How can i fix this?

Thank you very much

There's a bug in some Q2 clients where the player menu will stop displaying skins if there are certain characters (like space or "!" or whatever) in the model folder name.

Unfortunately I don't recall the details.

Does anyone recall the specifics?

Try looking in baseq2/players and xatrix/players for model folder names beginning with non-a-z or non-0-9 characters.

No. No weird names.
And I can see the skins in baseq2 but not in xatrix/players
I just copied and pasted the one I use to that folder and It looks alright now.

I don't recall the specifics of q2max_hires_textures.pak (from 2006) but if you right-click on the link your browser should have a "Save as..." option.

Hey Quadz, I just checked the downloads (q2 max hires texture pak.) was looking for a pak that makes q2 a bit more hd or just better. Is there such a thing? and when I click on that it takes me to a page of coding.

I had same symptoms -=[AZ]=- complained about. Message was "your session expired while posting". Cure was to log in via the LOGIN link via the top menu on the forum and log in there, checking the "always stay logged in" box. Client was Edge browser.

Looks like the servers have not been recording player stats since November?   http://tastyspleen.net/quake/stats/

When I attempt to login from the main page it says session has expired every time. I have to go to the login page in order to sign in every time.
