Don't Tell anyone but Sir Bedevere of the round table is recruiting! The knights shall find new found knowledge whilst being trained by he
and shall be rewarded with the honor to wear his crest!

I came up with this idea for a skin a while ago and I decided to give a quick reskin a go.
I am going to be changing the HK's tabard to have the crest:

His shield too:

Change the colour of the archers cloth (invert the colour get rid of the cross replace with crest)
Lastly the flags and banners.
Got Photoshop from a discreet source :icon_yarrpirate:

I am gonna give this all a go over the holidays but first I need a bit of advice:

What do I use to get the textures out of the gcf files?
How when I get them out can I convert them from .vtf files to .jpg or .png and back?
Any useful tips for a first time skinner?
What is your favorite colour?

    gcfscape

    don't try do do anything that the geometry can't carry
    having one favorite color is pretty stupid..

    I don't think custom skins/models work in PVK yet (could be wrong; probably not). Just a warning.

    Where can I find the gfc file with the textures in it? I looked everywhere but I cant find them(am I just blind?). I got gcfscape and vtfedit and they work fine.

    I have verified the integrity of the cache and it was ok and now I am defragging I hope it works.

    *edit* Nope it didn't work I can't find it at all well whatever I hope the next update fixes it.

    Apparently I was blind I found the gcf! I found the textures and I am going to start tomorrow. They look so creepy all flat.

    (or looking at the time i'll be working on it today :icon_stabhead: )

    I got all the textures I am going to change! Flag, banner, hk tabard, archer cloth (both third and firstperson) and the trinket particle! I am excited, it will be tricky to install because you need to get gcfscape in order to use it. So until I am finished I would like a suggestion. Where should I put it up for download?
    And for before and after pictures what console commands do I use to fix the camera and remove the hud?

    I finished the skinpack. But I cannot modify the vtfs in the gcf file so...I can't use them as skins until the next update. Here's what I got done:

    New version: http://www.mediafire.com/?1v83nk3g6ii94dl

    I know it isn't usable yet but that won't stop me.
    It is rather quite silly that I am making this whilst it isn't even usable but I want this skinpack to be ready when the time comes.

    Not that they matter but here are the changes: New music, added scoreboards and generally polished some things.

    p.s. Got any idea for a skin or skinpack for pvkii? Want it done in advance? Send in a request!

    SKINPACK WORKS

    You can now use my skinpack!
    Just some forewarning though, some textures have a black background or stick out. I might work on this pack a little more in the future!
