The skin servers for Minecraft have changed. I am now working on a new version to use these servers. As of 1/9/2019, SkinPatch V1.0 and V2.0 are broken.

What is skinpatch?

Skinpatch is a fix for older versions of minecraft that fetches your skin from the new skin servers. This makes it so you can see skin changes in version 1.2.5 in both singleplayer and multiplayer! It uses the skin fetching protocol from 1.3.2 to reflect new skin changes in 1.2.5. Cloaks (capes) are also supported!

Why did I create skinpatch?

I wanted my skin to change in Tekkit Classic, and when I went to upload...
"If you are playing version 1.3 or earlier, skin changes will not be reflected in-game."

What versions does skinpatch support?

Skinpatch only supports version 1.2.5. Comment to request patches for other versions.

What happens when SkinPatch updates?

Make sure you backup your jar before applying SkinPatch. SkinPatch updates are few and far between, but when an update is available, you should restore the jar you backed up and install the new SkinPatch update.

How long does it take to reflect my skin in-game?

It takes about an hour since it runs on the 1.3.2 skin protocol. I plan on updating to the 1.7.10+ protocol so skin changes are reflected immediately.

Why can't my friends see my new skin?

The mod fetches your new skin on your client, while your friend's client fetches the old skin. In order for them to see any skin changes, they need to have the mod installed as well.

How do you install it?

Like most other mods, just put the contents of the zipped archive into the minecraft.jar (with forge installed). If you are trying to run Skinpatch 1.2.5 on Tekkit Classic, put the contents into the modpack.jar. Make sure you copy ALL FOUR .CLASS FILES INTO THE JAR. ALSO, GO INTO THE MINECRAFT.JAR AND REMOVE THE META.INF FOLDER!

Do you think you could possibly update the mod to the new version of the skin fetching?

the mod doesn't work as of right now sadly enough.

I have installed the mod and it works great with the default texture pack but won’t show up when I turn on a different texture pack such as Sphax. Am I missing something or does it just not support other texture packs?

Will this work with the FTB launcher for 1.2.5 retro packs?

It should be the same. Just open the modpack jar and drop the files in. Unless technic pack is different on Mac.
