It has to be uploaded into the server so.... not all servers have it.
They called him Pre. The man who ran like fire every day, every race, wire to wire. The man who caused people to stop and say, I've never seen anyone run like that before. A runner who never paced himself, slowed down or quit. But Pre wasn't a runner.

Yeah it needs to be on the server to see it. All our skins in the downloads section should be on HoP, most come with icons to make them easily selectable from the ingame player menu. Some of the earlier ones don't tho, to see them you need to whip open your console and type:
/model (name of skin)
For example if you download the Snape1.pk3 skin you would type:
/model snape1
In the console to see the skin. Hope that helps.

In which case it shouldn't ask for a password. Unless someone came along and broke it. :x
