Minecraft Skin Issues

blockdude’s skin just wont change, i bought it cuz i wanted to be able to use my minecraft skin, but the thing is not working with any username or link, please help

been told that @macdguy could help me here…

When inputting your name, did you use capital letters? Minecraft names are case sensitive; ie GameDev will work, gamedev wont.

i typed my name as its in minecraft, it works in singleplayer… and maybe other servers, i havent checked, but it doesnt work in GMTower

Just tried it myself, it appears that parsing Minecraft skins is currently broken. I’m not quite sure if Foohy is able to fix it at the moment.

hmm, ok, but, please try to fix it whenever possible? and sorry for bothering you, thanks for all

Mojang’s skin server moved.

Skins have moved from:
http://s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftSkins/ http://s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftSkins/Bloatzel.png (Old skins still load here in a web browser but not in gmod)

http://skins.minecraft.net/MinecraftSkins/ http://skins.minecraft.net/MinecraftSkins/Bloatzel.png

so what they have to do is change that thing in the playermodel?

It’s likely in the lua somewhere. All they need to do is update the url and it should be fine.

then ill just wait for them to have time and wait for an update, thanks

I can patch this for GMTower, but not for the separate Workshop addon.

so, it means it would just work fine in the gmtower? cuz it works fine in singleplayer

I think the skin gets cached in single player.

how is that?

It downloads the most recent skin so you don’t have to redownload it each time you play.

i see… but it doesnt load in gmt…

Because they do not have the space to cache every skin on their side.

i guess ill just wait

Yeah, it works fine in the workshop addon, just not in GMod Tower.
I posted some info about it a while before the GMTower forums went read-only here http://www.gmtower.org/forums/index.php?topic=10442.0

yeah, hehe, i seen that
And also @macdguy could you let us know if u ever fix it? thanks
