Step 6: Adding you skin into your game

This part is on how to add the skin into your actual game. *Note: this will not work if you play offline as the skin is cloud-based. To upload you skin to your game you must first go to the website minecraft.net.  Once there click on Login and (obviously) log in. Once logged in as you, click on the link called "profile' at the top of the page. Once now once again look at the picture notes to get the full picture (lame pun) After following the steps listed above you can change your skin as many times as you want, with no charge, and make your character look however you please! 

Thank You for reading my 'ible on how to make and install a character skin in Minecraft. I hope you liked it.

You can also just download skins of the internet but where's the fun in that? You're a maker aren't you?!

Here's one! 500 points if you name the character!
<p>Conker! lol, f'cking love that game!</p>
I was wondering how to do it
Cool!! =) It worked
I found it easier and much more effective to open minecraft.jar look in mob then make a copy of char.png then open in photoshop elements (my prefered program) then save it as a different file and put it on your desktop or wherever then install it via minecraft.net
That would be for altering the skin of Steve. If you did that I suppose it would still show up even if you were offline, is that right?
you could do that by renaming the custom char.png and saving it in minecraft.jar but I just gave it a name and uploaded it to minecraft.net <br> <br> <br>I might do an instructable on how to change the skin for offline playing
You wouldn't have to rename it, if you did it woukd work, because the gameaccesses the file name not the contents
unless you had renamed the custom skin based on steve then you'd have to rename it char.png
Thats what i meant <br>
thats what I meant too <br> <br>oops lol
For those of you who are interested:<br><br>Google Chrome has a plugin on the Chrome web store, called Minecraft Skin Preview, that will let you see how the skin looks on your player, on your profile page.<br><br>Hope this helps someone.
Thanks! That's really cool!
