How do I install the "primal bear" skin for Udyr? I can only get the normal stance to work, but phoenix, turtle and tiger are failing. I know that when I use this skin it's local, so other people won't see I use that skin, but I'd really like to know how to solve this. I've had this with Tibbers too.. Thanks in advance.

B]Q&A[/B]

-Are you able to turn off the skin when you want?
You have to remove the .dds from the folder.


-If someone has a store bought skin, will the custom skin overwrite that skin with this method?
No, your custom skin will not overwrite a skin bought from the store because all skins have their own .dds files. For example, a custom Annie skin has to be named Annie.dds. If you want to overwrite the Goth Annie skin, your custom skin has to be named Annie2Black_Diffuse.dds.


-Can other players see my custom skin?
No, only you can see your custom skin, unless they installed the same custom skin too.


-I installed a custom skin for Annie, can I do the same for Tibber?
Yes! A custom skin for Tibber has to be named HogyoBear.dds, you have to create the folder "bear" in "DATA". \Riot Games\League of Legends\game\DATA\Characters\bear
p.s. Even if you use Goth Annie skin, you can install a custom skin for Tibber.
p.p.s. This is the one I use: Dark Panda by heureux

So I have something that you might want to add to your Q&A. I have a question about applying the parts of skins that change with an ability, like Sion's enrage changing his axe, or Nasus using his ult. I'm thinking that you have to place one of the files in the particles folder but I'm not 100% sure. could I get some clarification on this topic.
