How do I install skins on a CS server? Do I need a plugin? I have AMX and Metamod if that helps.

Hi, I started running a server recently, and I've tested some skins in CS:CZ and want to use them on my server. How do I install them on my server (HLDS) so that when my friends (and any others - its public) join, their clients download and use the skins? The "ultimate voices" sounds download to their clients and play properly, as do custom maps. Its just the weapon (glock/mp5/grenades/c4) skins and player (t/ct/hostage) skins that are troubling me. From googling, I've found that the problem is probably that the skins (must) have the same name as existing (default) files - so the clients think that they already have them and don't download them. Hence, people suggest that some plug-in would be needed. Does anyone know of a plugin that would handle player skins, weapon skins and (if possible) sounds too? I'm running AMX Mod X and Metamod if that's any help. The server will primarily be played by friends, so download times aren't much of an issue. [edit:] Also, would I be better off posting this in the CS:1.6 forum? I just noticed that this one seems a bit dead. Thanks, --_Stanai_

    Honestly don't know if CS:CZ/CS1.6 works like this, but if it's like CS:S put sv_pure 2 in the server config.

    Thanks. I got bored of googling and looked at the source code for a few random plugins to see what the language is like - I've started work on my own server-side plugin now.

    It can currently:

    1. re-skin weapons (Incl. knife, nades and c4; Models w_*, v_* and p_*)

    2. change the knife noises (lightsaber sounds :D)

    3. re-skin the players [EDIT: this is done now]

    It will hopefully also be able to:

    4. change the bomb noises

    If anyone knows of a **server side** plugin that can do things in the last list, please message me (or better yet, email me at {namaste} {at} {}) with the address of where I can download the plugin (or ideally, download its source code).

    I'll post my plugin with documentation when all features are implemented and tested.

    > 3. re-skin the players

    pretty sure Mani-admin can do that, it could when I had a server

    Plugin complete.

    Can't replace c4 or weapon sounds (excl. knife)

    Can replace player, hostage and weapon models

    Can replace knife sounds

    Can set bots to one of two models (for t or ct), and set players to one of four models (two for t and two for ct).

    If anyone wants it, email me:

    {namaste} {at} {}
