I apologise if the thread I'm making is wrong in some way as this is the first thread I've created on this website and the second ever. The problem is that my 1.12 skin turns to a mangled mess in the 1.13 since the new launcher uses a different layout for skins. I just want to convert this 1.12 skin to 1.13 in the new layout. Is there anywhere where I can do that?
Also, I'm putting in a skin which is only in this for the fact it is similar to my own and that it shows the new layout compared to the old layout which is the ginger - haired one. To clarify: The one to be converted is the one with blue on his back with yellow/ginger hair. The one with black hair is just for comparison of the new layout.
I'm not aware of any changes to the skin format for 1.13, and I just loaded the game and my old skin works fine. The only change I know of that was done to the skin format was a few years ago when they added the Alex skin type with extra layers for clothes and such. Any of the original Steve skin style formatted files should still work fine.
Having said that, looking at your skin file, it looks to be rotated 90°, which should never have worked if that's what you were using. Rotate it to the correct orientation and it should work.
Thank you for helping me. It turns out you were right as I must have accidentally rotated it so when I updated it on the launcher it didn't read properly. I have no idea but I think I would have been a while before I realised the mistake.
Now it's just the question of how to make this say it's resolved...
