Recently I decided to install a male musketeer skin


So I downloaded one from the Nexus Mods DD Library and extracted it


Installing it like so:

Computer > D: > steam > steamapps > common > DarkestDungeon > dlc > 445700_musketeer > heroes > musketeer


Which it came in the form of:



Due to it overlapping with the already existing musketeer_B file

I decided to rename it to musketeer_E


When I booted up the game the skin did not appear

So I changed it to musketeer_K


Which made it work for some reason


I've also had the same problems with other heroes when trying to install skins for them manually.

One for example being an arbalest skin set


that had skins labeled:

arbalest_E to arbalest_L


But only arbalest_E and arbalest_F appear in game.


Tldr; when i manually installed a skin it was labeled musketeer_E but it didn't work, renaming it to musketeer_K made it work though


My questions are

1. How does the labeling system work?

2. Does the labeling system matter? Can I deviate from the normal way of labeling it and change it to "crusader_GAP" or "crusader_A1"?

it's only A to Z as far as I know. Regarding why E did not work, no clue...

keep updating if you find out anything else regarding this
