Go to your main simtractor folder, dont enter it, be so you se "Simtractor 4.0".

Copy the skin and paste it over it, then it will say "Replace this with this one? Yes or No?"

Press yes and I hope it will work.

Try to search up the file you'll replace, then paste the new skinfile over it.

Could it be that the skins are replacing the backup files for the skins and not the original? Try finding the skin which you are working with. You will see in several places there are two skin files for each one. One skin is a backup file and the the other is the original.

Also, are you using Windows 7 or Vista? If your reinstalled Simtractor, make sure that you installed it in the same file path as before.

Windows 7 and Vista have a folder labeled Program Files (86x), and also have a regular Program files folder.

It is possible to install the game accidentally to both program files folders and then the game will load from only one.

Do you understand me?
