Texmod is a free program which allows a Dead Rising 2 player to use reskin mods in the PC version of Dead Rising 2. For example, Texmod allows the player to change Chuck's outfit to a different color, or have different writing on it.

This article explains how to:

  1. download and install texmod
  2. Use existing created reskins, created by texmod in your game.

Troubleshooting Texmod[edit source]

Dead rising 2 virus alert.png

Occasionally a virus protection program will indicate that this program is a trojan virus. This is a false alert and can be ignored.[1]
{{#ev:youtube|fCj16VDyXoY|300|left|How to Fix - You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.}}

If you have AVG virus protection, and get the message "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." See this video to fix this problem.

Tools >> advance settings >> Exceptions. Add folder with TexMod into the folder.

For me, this video suggestion did not work, I had to add the file to the excludes folder. Tools >> advance settings >> Exceptions. (see picture to the right).
