This is my first ever working Minecraft mod, and it's... a skin fix... Everyone has to start from somewhere I guess.
The reason I made this mod is that I couldn't find any good working mods for this fix.
And the ones that work, mostly use external websites to get the skin file
(which means that if that website ever goes offline or has issues, the skin fix no longer works).
I also wanted to dip my toes into Minecraft modding.
I've compiled the mod for 3 different Minecraft versions: a1.2.6, b1.7.3 and release 1.2.5.
I'm still very new to Java so my code can be a bit messy.
Note: vanilla launcher will automatically redownload modified game files.
You need to create a custom version for your mods.
These guides are the same for every version of the mod.
Note: if your skin appears missplaced, you may need to convert your skin to the 64x32 format.
It's not much, but it works. Have Fun!
