I can't use any skins that are vpk files

A Question for Team Fortress 2

Question Solved

This Question was answered and a solution was chosen.
Every single weapon skin that is a vpk file that I try to add in my custom folder in Team Fortress 2 don't load in game.

I need to use a program or anything else?

    I can only think of two things that could cause your issues.

    1. You're playing on sv_pure 1 servers. (Skins don't work on those)
    2. The vpk's have incorrect root folders. Thus cannot load at all.
    If you tell us what mods your using we could find what the problems are. (If it's the mods themselves that is)
