This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Old upload. Enjoy.

The mesh is not included, get it here.

Really? I've never heard of that error before. Try it again. Maybe you clicked on the wrong link? As far as I can tell the site works fine and no one else seems to be having trouble. It could even be your version of WinRAR or winzip. Thats all I could think of.

star_gusser Yay, animated! I can bin stuff myself, no problem.

Please tell folks that they need 7zip to open the mesh archive (and lzh files in general). I had not heard of this format before, but figured it out. Google is my friend. I guess that's why the Download Help said stuff about 7zip, hee hee!

SAGGG Do you get a box with two options? Open with WinZIP and Save to Disk? Make sure you pick Save to Disk. Of course, once you save it, you still won't be able to open it with WinZip, so you need to download 7zip.

These are soo pretty! I love your recolors! Red is my favorite!
Thanks so much!

SAGG: WinRAR opens LZH files. I was surprised to see that! I thought I was going to have to dl another zip program!

I...will never be a memory.

These are awesome, but the names/numbers thing is confusing when you only want certain colours.

beautiful thanks! ANd also thanks for the helpful directions in finding the mesh. I get sick of mesh links that link to the main page, and you need to go hunting for the mesh through all the downloads...
