Okay, first of all, I bought the game. I paid with paypal and my game allows multiplayer and everything. I have my own account, everything should be fine and dandy, BUT... when I go to the profile page on minecraft.net it says "You need to buy the game to be able to change your skin." Has anyone else had this problem and fixed it? I really want to change my skin because I made a really cool one and it won't let me apply it.
I'm a little perplexed as well.
I actually edited my skin once, just for giggles. I removed a tooth. It seemed to work fine.
Tried uploading a fully custom skin today.. Won't change. Still my missing tooth guy both on the site and in game.. :sad.gif:
OMG I'm having the EXACT same problem. It's really starting to get on my nerves! I don't want to be Steve anymore, whenever I go onto minecraftskins, it says on minecraft.net 'You have to purchase the game before changing your skin' and I don't know how to do it! Omg.
I had the exact same problem and i figured out how to fix it! Ok, so at mine craft.net instead of logging in with your Mojang account or email, you need to log in using your mine craft Username (not an email) and the password you use to log into the game. Then go to Profile and you should be able to upload your skin. Hope this helps!
