    I think the skin is in the mainmenu or shared.map so you would need to internalize it but it would be like skinning any other bitmap.

    Open your map, go into the [bitm] tag and look for something like "masterchief_fp arms" and stuff like that. Then you would exrtact it and open it in photoshop, skin it to however you like it and then save it as DXT1 or whatever its format is. I'm not sure but you might have to internalise this one. Hope this helped.

    The bitmap your looking for is called "Objects/characters/masterchief/bitmaps/masterchief" then you will also need the arms, legs and head (found right around the first masterchief bitmap) then save its as DXT2/3 and it does need to be internalized.
