I'm pretty sure insurgency is in the common folder.
C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Common\insurgency\ ?
Should install just like any other game. My steam is currently broke though, so I don't have INS installed.
Heres a little help for you bud. ok so firts find the skin you want to install.
Then goto your Insurgency main directory/folder mine looks like this
Then minimize the folder, ill come back to the install in just a moment.
Next open the RAR file or ZIP file, and you will see say 3 files inside the zip or rar file one would be the materials file models and if a weapon sound file *This is just an example the files change depending what skin or model you are installing*
Ok next you are going to drag the materials file from the RAR or ZIP file into the Insurgency folder *DO THIS BY HOLDING DOWN YOUR LEFT MOUSE BUTTON drag it down to the bottom of the screen and over the INSURGENCY folder and it will auto open and drop the file into the folder it will say do you want to place this file here click YES ALL and then do the same with the other files int he zip or rar file and you are done !
Start your STEAM up and play and creat game to check weapons, you will have to join a server to check your player skin as there is no BOTS in creat game.
This for me is the easyest way to install skins as you can see exactly where you are putting them, i have been dong this for years, some do it differently but this is the way i install custom content
Hope this helps bud
Are you asking how to install it or it won't show up on server?
To install it should be in:
And move all the files (Models, Materials, Sound, Scripts) into it.
Did you try it on a server?
I have Vista too, but the skins will ONLY work in sv_pure 0 servers.
If you go to servers with sv_pure 1, your skins won't show up, if you go to sv_pure 2 servers, your game will crash (Previous Experience).
Try to find a server with sv_pure 0 or create your own server.

Ok thanks. I guess I'll just leave them then lol coz every server I went on they didn't show up XD
Thanks for all the help guys :).
Um actually they should work on nearly all servers, even some with sv_pure 1 on, it's somthing wrong with the way ur installing them, u sure u taking the files ( models an mat an so on ) out of the files the r packaged in, i get this problem all the time when installing the skins.
first times took my a bit.
Hi friend, your problem, to version rc2.1 of insurgency you put the skin in your folder insurgency_"your languge", i am spanish, for example: insurgency_spanish, the folder is in:
C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/YOURUSERNAME/Insurgency/insurgency_"your language"
at this way, server pure on, the game see that the original and not crash, if pure off you see your skin ok. i use of this way and i haven't any problem.
now you and i go have a problem. at new version 2.5 of insurgency, change library o variable of folder models of weapons and don't run correctly, you see but see bad animation expl:when press "shift to run" and stop the weapon see fire and expulse some bullet , really not is firing but it see.
only skins or sound that not change folder model will run expl: recolored weapon
or new sound of weapon
i hope the coders move the fantastic weapon of this web to version 2.5 of insurgency also no play with diferent weapons to the original game.
if your skin is of the soldiers i push my skin of spanish force a run correctly in 2.5, i believe the insurgency programer not change nothing of this.
