Alright so i'm trying to make a custom skin but there is something that i'm confused about.
Some skins (Like the Firefox Ahri skin) use extra files to attain SPECIAL effects
Meaning that they would have files that are not found in normal skins.

How would you go about making these files work on base skins?

So to give an example...
There is a file in the Firefox Ahri archive that is called "Ahri_Fire_Burst.dds"
This file doesn't exist in the normal Ahri skin folder, so its obvious that it is used to make a effect in the Firefox Ahri skin. How would you make it so that the file in question will work for the normal Ahri skin.

All particles are held in a different set of folders (if I remember correctly).
In order to get those files to work on the base skin you would need to modify the actual particle files.
I'm not quite sure where those are at now either, I've not done any custom skin stuff since they redid the file system.

Modify them by name, so that they are named a way that will make them compatible
or physical contents, Which would be weird.

Basically that, you would want to go into the base particle folders and replace the files that you want changed, but they have to have the same name as the original (unless you go into the actual LoL programming).

You could edit your client exe to load the firefox skin instead of the original skin i think, but i don't think that that would be easy.
Tri lane for life.

Even if there isn't a variation of the skin's particles, there are still the original skins base particles. Those can be edited or recreated and then replaced.

so that would entail finding out what each file is used for in the skins, and then finding the file that has an identical use, or a use that isn't needed for the skin to work?
