ABOUT THIS FILE:
This is a High resolution replacement skin for the allied soldier in
Day of Defeat: Source. It is TWICE the size of the default skins so
make sure your computer can handle it. It has been running smoothly
on an ATI 9700 pro that is 3 years old so any modern video cards
should have no problems.
I made this skin to depict as accurately as possible a late war
(1944-1945) US soldier fighting on the European Front. He is wearing
an M43 jacket and trousers.
The Sleeve skin actually belongs to Captain Higgins and was slightly
modified by me to match my skins.
* skin inaccuracies
Not all colors are going to be perfect. The US uniform, by design,
is pretty drab and boring. Some liberties were taken with the skin
to give better contrast to details in-game.
model issues that cannot be corrected with the skin
Euipment suspenders at the top of the shoulder are incorrect. I did
the best I could to fake it.
other items of note
The buttons on the jackets cuffs - apparetnly there was more than one
way they were sewn on. I choose the style I was able to find 40+
pictures of, not the style shown on the jackets in Saving Private Ryan.
Captain Higgins - made original sleeve skin and provided references and
knowledge about US uniforms.
Foreees - a jolly good fellow
