CS/CZ Skin Installing!

How to install skins - CZ & 1.6

Counter-Strike players may get tired of the same old CT and T skins and weapon skins!

This is a tutorial that shows how you can install skins of your choice to add some flavor to your game!


-=Weapon Skins=-

Step 1 - Download the Condition Zero or 1.6 weapon skin of your choice, must be a weapon in-game though.

Step 2 - Open your "Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\cstrike\models" folder (for CS 1.6 use).

Open your "Steam/steamapps/account_name/condition-zero/czero/models" folder (for CZ use).

Step 3 - Once the Skin is downloaded open the skin file. There should be v_ w_ p_ types of the skin (if it is a gun skin). Drag the Skin file (name should be "v_gunname.mdl") to the models folder.

Step 4 - Once you have all of your skins dragged to your models folder, you may now open CS 1.6 and play away.

Note - This method may be used for both Counter-Strike 1.6 and Condition Zero but not CS:S!

-=Player Skins=-

Step 1 - Download the Counter-Strike 1.6 or Condition Zero Player pack/skin of your choice!

Step 2 - Open your "Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\cstrike\models\player" folder. If you do not have one, make it yourself. Inside this folder should be 8 folders. Each folder should have its own name, 4 for CT and 4 for T players. Names are:

CT TEAM: T TEAM:
sas arctic
gign guerilla
gsg9 leet
urban terror
spetsnaz (CZ Player ONLY!) militia (CZ player ONLY!)
Step 3 - Have the downloaded skin file opened. Then drag the player skin to the player folder it belongs to. If the file says "sas.mdl" drag it to the "sas" folder etc.

Step 4 - Once you have dragged all the player skins you have downloaded or are wanting, you may now open CS 1.6/CZ and play away.

Note - This method can be used for CZ and 1.6 - CZ does have 5 players so if you want to change your CZ Player skins you must add the skin of your choice!

    in some models, some may have consistency error

    for example: could not join the game due to: bad model: P.M4A1.mdl

    to fix it: delete the model or replace with the original mdl file.

    in some skins or models, the p model usually have cosistencies.
