Fix for skins in Tekkit Classic

Recommended Posts

About a month ago, Mojang discontinued all of the legacy skin APIs. Until 1.2.5, Minecraft retrieved skins from an s3.amazonaws.com/MinecraftSkins/, however this database has not been updated since April 2014. Because of this, skins would no longer update in any version prior to 1.3, although they would still technically work if you had an older account. Versions 1.3 through 1.7.8 used skins.minecraft.net instead, so a number of patches came out to make older Minecraft versions retrieve skins from skins.minecraft.net. Unfortunately, in February, Mojang discontinued all Skin APIs except the current one (sessionserver.mojang.com), and deleted both of these older databases. This newer API is not really usable with older Minecraft versions, because it would require backporting the 1.7.x+ UUID system. To solve this problem, I have made a fix for Tekkit Classic which tells Minecraft to retrieve skins from an API called Minotar, which still uses usernames to designate players.

Well, it worked... sort of. I have my skin, it's just not wrapped onto the model properly. I added both files as stated in the README, and I understand this is an old topic, but if I could get some help, I'd appreciate it. A screenshot showing the error is attached.

Hey,

I am having the same problem, have you found a fix for this?

Thanks!

I actually did find a fix! The issue is the new skin format. Instead of the new 64× skin texture with space for the arms/legs/jacket layer, you need the old 64×32 with the legs and arms sharing the same texture, as well as the hat layer, like the attached image. Upload a 64×32 version of your skin to use through, say, the official Minecraft launcher, and it should all be fine. The skin may not update immediately, just give it some time. Restarting the Technic Launcher may work as well.
