Hey fligh, thanks for posting. I have read your sigs (twice, they rock!) - I also tried the f5, f6 routine but somehow even that failed to produce what I need.
Now, by way of an explanation, I should point out that I do realize this is not the way to ‘learn blender’ and I shall be doing just that as soon as I complete up this mini project ;] But in the meantime I am stuck with, in one hand a .blend model car that has a basic skin and which I can open in blender 2.34 and in my other hand I have the new replacement skin which, so far, I have been unable to get into the mix.
I fire up blender 2.34, open the .blend file and hit f5 but from there it starts to go wrong as I do not see anywhere the option to add new material nor do I see the option to add a new texture when I hit f6.
Can anyone see where I am going wrong? Should I install an older version of blender? All I need right now is to see this new skin on the model.
