Wow, that is very useful!!! I/we thank you for the valuable information! +rep for you my good man.
I've reupload Joedreck's file as patch (there is also a link for that in the frontpage now). I hope this will work for you plus make sure you have no other skin mods first just to be sure (clean slate). If not, please explain the details on what did you do step by step so we can help you.
