Is there a faster way to name the files?

Is there a faster way to name the files?

Unless there exists an external program to do it for you, no. Usually renaming is the most tedious part of the process.

What if I want to have two differents back/side and side frames?
I should have explained this better in the main post, but here's how this works:

A frame called PLY1A8A2 is the A frame of the sprite "family" PLY1, but the numbers make it interesting. The numbers signify which angle it should be displayed at. The reason most skins have frames with two numbers in them is that putting an additional one tells the engine to render that frame for (in this case) angle 2, and mirror it for angle 8. This is true for other rotations as well, such as 6/4 and 7/3. If you want a full 8-way rotation, you'd need frames A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, and A8 all defined. If you wanted different side frames and back/side frames, you'd need A3, A4, A6, and A7.

I've been meaning to update the main post for a while with this corrected information, but I haven't gotten the time to do that yet. Maybe I should do that soon, haha

Look over your filenames and make sure none of them are incorrectly spelled.

Hello. I have an issue with my skin: apparently, frame A is 'missing rotations', and MM8BDM won't run due to it. If my skin wasn't set up correctly, please tell me why. Thank you.

There's a good chance that you messed up when naming the files. Can you post a screenshot of the wad in SLADE/SlumpED?

My skin works when I follow this tutorial, but the sounds aren't playing. I'm not sure where I went wrong?

Make sure that you spelled the filenames correctly in the skininfo and that none of the filenames are longer than 8 characters long.

So when I activate the game, each time it gives me this error message when the game starts up.
"Invalid data encountered for texture Kawaii Blizzard Man.pk3:sprites/skininfo"
I guess something is wrong with the SKININFO file. Here's what I have in it.
{
name = "KBM"
sprite = BLZG
class = Megaman
dsnoway = FATLAND
dsoof = FATLAND
dspldeth = MEGADEAT
dspdiehi = MEGADEAT
dsplpain = MM4PAIN
dstaunt = dsnone
gender = other
}
What's wrong with this?

That sprite text needed 4 digit not 3 digit
