I recently downloaded 3 skins, and after installing them in the correct folder they do not work. I have put all of the .vmt and .vmf files (in the correct files i.e. knife_t, rif_m4a1) in the v_models folder C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\mabols\counter-strike source\cstrike\materials\models\weapons\v_models and all of the .mdl etc. files (also in correctly named files) in C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\mabols\counter-strike source\cstrike\models\weapons And all of the sounds in C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\mabols\counter-strike source\cstrike\sound\weapon Why don't my skins work?

    I cannot get skins to work anymore either, I liked it when it was simple; put the skins in cstrike and your done. But I'm sure that recently they have changed it. I want many skins but I can never get them to work, shame.

    Valve pretty much hates custom skins.....I am assuming that you had an error that said something similar to the following: "Server is enforcing file consistency on v_xxxx.mdl" This means you have a model that is "too big" according to valve's lameass standards. Please tell us if there is an error or if the skin is not working correctly. You have to be more specific.

    Im pretty sure that

    Server is enforcing file consistency on v_xxxx.mdl"

    Mean the server has sv_consistency 1 set
    If the server has it off you can join.

    Hmmm do you think it would be way better if everyone submits skins copressed as self-extracting files, so you only have to select your "Cstrike" folder then everything is installled properly?
