Old skins not working

A Forum Thread for Team Fortress 2

After downloading some skins such as these: and . I found that none of these worked anymore, aside from the mediguns having backpack icons, probably due to age or something else. Is there a way to get these working again? it seems the creator is dead, though there is no last seen date to tell, so it seems I can't just ask for a fix. Any help?

    Changes in TF2's file system move crap around, chances are that these are simply outdated.

    Having a similar problem myself, I wanted to reinstall an old mod I made for the Concheror, but despite the filepaths meeting properly the texture remains unchanged ingame, while the sound file does change.
