So I have been working on a map for the past 3 days.. just a simple, playable map for a friend's server... but see, as I was making this map, I figured out how to download weapon skins (I never thought about using skins, until that moment) so I come here, learn how, download some, and thought they were great.
But, some turned out Pink and Black (yes, I know that sometimes happens) but that's not what I'm worried about... It's a flashlight one that I must have installed terribly, because when I try to use the flashlight, it does not work... and the sound it is supposed to play when turned ON, it plays whenever someone dies...
Then, you know what? My computer starts to act slower and slower. When I try to open my map in SDK, a blue error screen comes up. It tells me to check if I have enough space... and I do, I have 19 GB left. (My games run on my other computer fine with only 76 MB left!!)
I'm really concerned and scared, and I want to ask, if it is possible to get my data from my map and send a copy to myself on my E-Mail and like, keep it forever, you know? I don't know if thats possible, but if it is, it would be great if someone could tell me. I'm afraid of losing my data, cause I may have to.. uh.. format. :(
Damn. Where did you download this from? I'll steer clear of it.
I'm a dumbass. "So I came here. . ."
I pity you. I got trojanized recently, and I had the same symptoms. Except I got porno pop ups.
"No, really, Mom!"
Ok, hold on a moment... and modul3, I know I can send myself e-mails, hehe... I just wanted to know if it was possible to get the data from my map so that I can use it on a different computer to recreate the map in a snap... if that made any sense.
I'm gonna guess you mean highlight the file and press 'Copy'... right? I just don't want to do anything wrong. And two, when I want to put it on another computer, I put it into the vmf folder, where I got it from before? It will work that way? =o
Oh yea, and do you still need the links to the skins?
Yes, I do mean just highlight the file and click copy. To use it on another computer, just place it in the mapsrc folder on that computer.
If you want to give links to the skins, we can take a look at them and their contents to see if they have any sort of nasties in them. Also, I can help you get them installed properly once I know how that skin in particular was set up for download.
Ok. This may take a while, but there wasn't much I downloaded. =)
EDIT: Oh, and I downloaded the skins BEFORE I ever created an account here... so, I dont know if an account had to do with anything. ;)
Ok, sorry for such a long time.. I bet most of you are offline now anyways.
Here are where I got each of my skins.

Could not find my USP skin. It seems it maybe has gotten deleted... *shifty eyes* But the filename was fiveseven_for_usp.
Notes on the USP: It had all custom things. Skins, sounds, world view, player view, everything. And also, it seemed everythime I started up CSS, when I tried to go to a server, it would say something about the USP Silencer file. All I had to do was retry the server and it would grant access... its just that, I would have to go through the same thing over and over once everytime I started up CSS.

Famas- No problems.
P228- Possibly needs a script, or you may already have a script installed which is messing it up. No other problems.
C4- No problems.
Deagle- No problems.
Dualies- You may not have installed the script for the sounds. No other problems.
Flashlight- No problems. How is it messed up?
Galil- Make sure you picked one of the texture sets and installed that.
Glock- Possibly needs a script, or you may already have a script installed which is messing it up. No other problems.
HE Frag- No problems.
Smoke- No problems.
M3- No problems.
M4A1- No problems.
MP5- You need to pick one of the animation variants.
Scout- No problems.
UMP45- You need to pick one of the sets of textures. There is no custom firing sound, only reload etc. No other problems.
XM1014- No problems.
The flashlight problem is, that it won't even show up (meaning flashlight doesn't work at all) and the sound plays when someone DIES, not when a flashlight is turned on or off. I may have just freaked up on that one completely.
