Game will freeze when custom skins are present

Alright, i'm a noob so, sorry if i'm doing anything wrong, but whenever I try to play HL (and I have custom skins) it'll freeze, and I think only when it is trying to load. This does not happen when I have no custom skins. Please help.

    The custom skin files are corrupt. try to download other skins and try them one by one. it happens a lot. hope you find this useful.

    Download Model Viewer, it will give you the view of the skin that you have downloaded, however it is useful for me to check if that skin is corrupted or not, corrupted skin is crashed, not is the skin will show, however, if your graphic is low, it will take time to load it.

    Most common crashed on skin:

    -Skin texture is large 1024x1024, and you computer is slow to load it
    -File corrupted
    -Animation corrupted
    -Animation is missing(Sometimes)
    -Wrong section for unZiping the files

    Etc.

    When you are changing skins change only V_MODEL because w_model and p_model can bust your game,destroy fps and on some servers their consistency is forced.

    Half Life engine models won't accept a texture bigger than 512x512 or a similar size.

    That depends on the w_ or p_ models you are using, not every model triggers consistency errors.

    Still using the console command "mp_consistency 0" wouldn't hurt.
