Is to possible to transfer just the skin weights from on mesh to another with two different joint systems. I have a completely different joint setup with the same mesh and don't want to take th time to skin both. I've never tried it but was hoping someone with more knowledge then myself would know the pattern and would share it. Thanks.

that isn't spatial lookup and transfer (what GATOR does), that's a rig retargeting/remapping.
It's possible and the tool you're after is called MOTOR. Might take you a bit to work it all out but it'd be a good long term plan to learn it.

You can also use this script:

It's working even if you have two differant mesh and two differant rigs.
it will give you an error, just ignore it.

Thanks for the script I'll give it a run, but I am intersted in learning MOTOR because I think that will be more beneficial in the long run. Does anyone know of any good tutorials?
