Rogue Adventuress Skin

It may be just a coincidence, but I’ve been running across many skins lately that were done for other people.  These skins always seem to be better than others, and the Rogue Adventuress skin by OblivionProjects is no exception.

The details in this skin are simple but well done.  Every aspect was given attention, right down to the shading on the hands to give the illusion of fingers.  Equipped with leather boots, black pants, a blue shirt, red longcoat, and even a metal shoulder guard (properly placed on the sword arm, I might add), this adventurer looks ready to explore the deepest dungeons without fear.

 

Installing the Skin

 

For online play, skins can be installed by simply uploading the file to your profile on Minecraft.net.  Skins posted on certain websites can be uploaded directly from their page, including this one; click on the button on the right-hand side labeled “change my skin” to be taken directly to the appropriate page.

 

For offline play only, the process is similar to installing mods:

 

  1. Download the skin’s .png file;

  2. Hold Windows key and press R to bring up the Run… dialog, or go to Start > Run.

  3. Type %appdata% and press enter, then navigate to roaming/.minecraft/versions.

  4. Open the folder containing the version you use for offline play and view the .jar file using WinRAR.

  5. Create a backup of the meta.inf file contained inside the .jar and store it in a separate folder.

  6. Navigate within the .jar file to assets/minecraft/textures/entity.

  7. Rename the image file titled “steve” to anything else (such as steve_backup).

  8. Change the name of your skin’s .png file to steve.png and insert it here.

 

Be sure to always backup your files, or you might end up adventuring to find some replacements.

 

This skin reminds me of a character from a popular Playstation game from the late 90’s or early 2000’s – I can’t quite put my finger on it.  Any ideas?  Comment below and let me know, or as always feel free to leave your opinion on the skin!
