I've been scrubbing the web for days now but alas I have found no one with the same issue posting about it.
While I've seen many posts about the host skin bug with lan for 1.7.10, I haven't seen anyone with this specific problem.
The issue isn't that other players can't see *my* skin, the issue is only *I* can't see my skin, but everyone else can. I can see everyone else's skin, but they can't see their own skin, sort of like a very frustrating Indian Poker game.
We are using the lan skin fix mod.
If there's any more information that is relevant, I shall post it.
