Spider-man Skin

Okay – this skin’s name is actually “srtixfmzcxvuywzzxxdsgggjbshgk” and it was uploaded by rodrigo2004.  The skin’s name makes it seem fishy, so if this is a reupload by someone, be sure to let us know in the comments with a link to the original.

With that aside, let us take a moment to marvel (get it?) at how awesome this skin is.  The color is awesome, the shading is excellent, and the likeness to Spider-man is uncanny.  There are plenty of superhero skins on Minecraft, but few as well-done as this one.


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 “upload to Minecraft” 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.


Remember to keep your meta.inf and original steve texture backed up somewhere just in case.  Who is your favorite superhero?  Let us know in the comments below, then download this skin and swing into action!
