1. If you want to turn off the skin, you have to remove the .dds from the folder.
2. Sure!
3. When you rename the .pfd to .dds you get that message? Even if it says your computer doesn't recongnize it, can you hit "Yes" to change it to .dds? Even if it says "you might not be able to use this file with that extension", it doesn't matter. The skin will work!

I think the answer to this is yes, but just to clarify. If someone has a store bought skin, will the custom skin overwrite that skin with this method? I enjoy seeing store skins still =P.

No, it will only modifiy the original skin.

For example, if you install a custom skin for Annie, it has to be named Annie.dds
If you want that this skin overwrite the Goth Annie skin, it has to be named Annie2Black_Diffuse.dds (because every skin has their own .dds)

1) How do you edit the skin?
2) Can you replace one of your custom skins?
I want to turn my Rammus into Bowser and Low Rider Rammus.
