Howdy guys. Name's Kirby. I do TF2 and voice work and am an amature skinner.
So that time of year is approaching again. the time which Kirby thinks about what the devil he likes in TF2. Oh, wait a minute, he can't buy anything because he's poor as hell. But hey, no one said that the TF2 Buying or Trading game was easy.

I know gabriel hasn't given me his information yet, but this is where we stand with our skins.
I reviewed with Matt and there were a few visual things that needed to be edited or fixed. We came up with a small list, but the idea is that there are MINOR things wrong with it, and in certain cases MAJOR
Soldier - Darken Helmet
Spy - make hands the color of spy's skin, make shoes a darker color such as brown or black.
Scout - DO OVER ENTIRELY, NO EXCUSES
Sniper - Turn Green to Tan
Medic - Darken shoes
BLU Pyro - Make certain Purples into Blacks
RED Pyro - touch up the white portion of the belts and straps so they have continuity [difficulty level, enormous]
Engineer - Touch up the helmet so it's not blazingly purple, turn the pants a lighter color, fix belt buckle mishaps.
That's all for now on my end. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and will have a Happy New Year.

To install the skins: you must go to C:\program files\steam\steamapps\(your steam name)\team fortress 2\
the .zip file should already have the needed folder. Just extract it to a folder for safe keeping, and put the folder named "tf" (the first folder you see, hopefully, or else you're doing something wrong.) into your Team Fortress 2 folder. And that should be everything you need!
Technically speaking, I have uploaded the JSSG skin files for download, but an admin needs to check them out first.

[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: ...
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54 grumbles, looks back at the previous amount of conversation.
S҉yd҉er: you fail at adding
S҉yd҉er: no wonder you have bad marks
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: i don't have a math class.
S҉yd҉er: being groounded won't help that
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: :/
S҉yd҉er: ...how can you not have math.
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: i already took all my math i needed and got really good grades. The problem is that you're being rather cryptic, my friend.
S҉yd҉er: i bet you have 3 times more religion then
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: no, just two free periods.
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: did i just somehow confuse you?[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: america does things ass-backwardsly, i know.
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: ... i take it you're mad?
S҉yd҉er: because every imperial unit translates so well
S҉yd҉er: i'm being cryptic
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: and then a lot of random keybanging.
[JSSG] PurpleKirby54: :1
Kirby is a student at the Advanced Technologies Academy of Southern Nevada, or "A-Tech" for short.
Anyhow, that's enough narrative style for now.
So, I have a bit of an education so far in my life. Nothing too special. So, yeah. I'm Kirby, I make music, doodle from time to time, and play Team Fortress 2 in my spare time. Now, keep in mind, I don't intend on doing anything of a grandeur scale, but if something happens to blow up, become famous, get like 10 million views, I'll let it. I am not trying to be someone popular on the internet. If it happens, big deal. I'm just a guy who writes tunes.
All in all, I ain't much to brag about. I play piano and violin, I am a fan of classic video games, specifically the Sega Genesis games and N64 games. I am a Nintendo nerd, knowing plenty about their franchises and what not. Sega however is a neat little hobby. Sometimes I dabble in third party whatsits and more recent things such as Team Fortress 2, as I stated before. My main method of creating music is a neat little program called "Mario Paint Composer". No, not the entirely limited one for SNES, the one developed by "UNfun Games". I dabble, really. Nothing to brag about. I mostly deal with Original Compositions, or OCs for short. If I tell you I'm working on an OC, that's what that means.
Anyhow, I best be getting off the computer pronto. Pop just got home and he probably wants to use it.
