Customs skins not working

Question Answered but Unsolved

It's really simple, I try to add custom skins that I downloaded and they don't show up in the game. I've put them in the custom folder in MMod proper, in the HL2 custom folder, in the HL2U folder, nothing.
Any help?

    Try dragging folders "materials, models, sound, etc" to a seperate folder and name your folder that addon. Let me know if it works.

    1. Try putting them in the base MMod sourcemods folder instead.
    2. Check the gameinfo.txt file and see where the MMod folders are loading the custom folder from.
    3. Use a symbolic link to share custom folder locations with multiple games.
