"Files different from server"

A Forum Thread for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

I've been trying to create my own skins however when I replace them and try to play online I get the message "Files different from server" anyone had this issue or know how to fix it?

    Sound like they are doing something similar sv_pure. You could check if you installed something wrong. I think MW2 skinning needs you to edit the Hex code of the texture files so the file size in the end is the same. Have you done that ?
