Default little problem with 2 models for 2 dif. skins

Hi, i've been using a guide here that uses 2 models to have '1' model with different skins, a common issue.

This guide explained how to make 2 models, use 1 for the original skin, 1 for the new skin etc. etc.

I have succesfully imported the model and the skin. Everything seems to be fine and the original model and the edited model just stand next to eachother when I start the game (1 DL with weird eyes).

Problem is it's 'animated' icon is black, not the hero icon in the left corner of the screen nor the icon in the subgroups.

It's the icon that moves etc, above the HP/mana bars.

Anyone knows what this can be?

You mean the portrait? Where the model talks? If so, that would most likely be a model issue, or you forgot to also skin the poertait model of the custom skin. Or if not its something I'm unaware of :P

The model you asigned the skin probably has a separate model for the portrait. You´ll have to import this model with the changed skin

Ok there are indeed 2 different models, 1 for the portrait and 1 for the model itself when I look it up in the wc3 viewer. But how should I connect both models to 1 custom unit?

You dont, you import both seperately.

yes ofc, I have 2 seperate models in my import manager. Problem is that the normal model has the skin like it should (custom unit uses model, skin has path of the model) but the portrait model is doing nothing.

Ok guys, I finally did it with the help of masterslowpoke's guide.

http://saga.samods.org/tutorial/wc3multiskin.html

It really helped me!

Here is a screenshot of a fiend and its evil twin xD

Portrait finally works.
