I have noticed a few flaws in the whole counter strike source skinning thing. I haave seen heaps of "noob" skins that make the terrorists and counter terrorist bright blue and red so they are easy to hit. Not only was this bad but i managed to reskin the dust doors transparant so u can "wall hack" through them. I just wanted to see if its possible, and yes, by playing around with the vmt files u can reskin walls transparent. Ofcourse i will not use these "skin hacks" because cheating wrecks the game but it is possible for low life sad noobs to get people to reskin dust and other maps for them so they can cheat. That is the main problem with skins, u can skin stuff to use to ur advantage. I know they cant get rid of skinning, which is a stupid idea but there are flaws in it. I am also aware that in proper css competitions they do not allow skins which is good:) tell me what u think?

    Stuff like thats been out since skinning started back in regular counter-strike. It's really nothing new. I do find it stupid when people use skins to help them see better or transparent walls but in the end who cares if you don't pub because its all illegal in online competitions.

    There are more cheaters/hackers in CAL than you'd think.

    One of the mods should go through the skins and delete the stupid ones.

    Or someone can make have a module that checks if people are using skins and disables them. Don't know if possible but good idea none the less.
