SF4 PC: The Custom Skin Mega-thread!


You may not link to nude mods or screenshots of nude mods. No nipples, no penis, no vagina. It’s pointless to argue whether the mod is “tasteful” or not, because the forum rules are quite clear. Defy this warning and you risk a ONE YEAR BAN for linking porn.

The mods have spoken.

Update: 7/28/2009: **DLC Alternate Skins are on Live Marketplace! ** - If you plan on modifying alternate skins OR using modified ones, I strongly encourage you to purchase the DLC pack first. For around $12 you can get all 25 characters and support Capcom’s decision to allow us to modify this game in so many great ways!

Update: 7/24/2009: We’ve gone to Wiki format to help better organize everything (thanks to hunterk for the help!). Keep posting your new skins to this thread and we’ll make sure to update the Wiki. In the future, we may allow Authors to edit the Wiki themselves!



Changing SF4 PC Skins

  1. Download whatever skin file you want (.emz file)
  2. Find your SF4 Characters directory.
    Retail version: "C:\Program Files\CAPCOM\STREETFIGHTERIV\Battle\Chara"
    Steam version: “C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\street fighter iv\Battle\Chara”
  3. Go into the folder of the character you want to change. Remember they are Japanese names so Boxer is “BSN” (Bison).
  4. Whatever the .emz file you download is called, make a backup of the old one first. For example, Chun Li’s file is “CNL_01_05.col.emz” so rename that “CNL_01_05.col.old” and copy the new modified one from the zip file in there.
  5. Load the game and pick the proper character/color to see the skin (more in notes on this). Enjoy!

Important Notes
-PLEASE respect the authors here. DO NOT turn this into a beg/request thread but feel free to post any ideas you have. If someone wants to make it, they will. You can also do it yourself with the tools listed below!
-These skins do work online but only you will see it, not your opponent. They are local only and the game doesn’t appear to have checksums/checks in place. Still, CHANGE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
-No links to nude screenshots or nude patches directly please. SRK’s policy includes a 1-year ban for linking to porn so be careful what you put up. It’s on you! If you want something on the Wiki you don’t think is safe for SRK, PM me directly. Please obey the rules!

That Hogan skin is soooooo good. :rofl:

Indeed! I can’t believe how good some of these are right out of the gate. For the first time I’m very glad I bought it on PC.


Once i’ll get a new PC i’ll seriously think about getting the PC version.
Claw and Zangief mods are top-tiper this time

Yes we have some awesome ones so far Once I get the hang of the injection methods, I should have a few rolling out myself.

Cammy bikini
Cammy tattered original
Ken flame suit

Awesome thread, hopefully we’ll be seeing more great custom skins soon :smile:

evil ken looks like a 28 days later zombie.

Fei Long (small variation on the alt costume, gloves and additional bloodier cuts)
Chun li Pink colour mod on original

thanks alot keeep this thread alive, and we will have some great custom modded versions of SFIV.

also is there any tutorials in order to make our own?

Man all these customization are boss. They REALLY need these on consoles.

Hulk Hogan mod is amazing :looney:

Theres a mention about how to do it in this thread I believe

Subscribed, even though I don’t own or will not own the PC SF4.

Thanks for making this thread, i been looking for mods. I am so glad i decided to get SF4 on PC even if its just to mess around with this skins. I installed the goth chun last night and LOVE IT! As time goes on i am hoping to see more skilled artists come out with some killer ideas!


Even though i own PC version i will not use those on it. Don’t like moding games,like to keep it as original as possible.
But,nevertheless,this thread is amazing :smiley:
