A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

##############################################################################

THIS METHOD WAS FIXED IN 1.36.4.0 VERSION OF CSGO (7/6/2018) AND NOT WORKING ANYMORE!!!!

THIS CAN BE USED ONLY IN TEST PURPOSE, LIKE WHEN YOU WANT TO CHECK YOUR CUSTOM PARTICLES IN GAME!


Here's video demonstration of that method: 


The way it works:
In pak01_dir.vpk, in particles folder there's a "particles_manifest.txt" where you can find line about precaching "money_fx.pcf" file, but that file not using in game at all, you cannot even find it anywhere in game files. So if you rename your .pcf file to "money_fx.pcf" it will be precached by CSGO itself. That's it.

Here's "particles_manifest.txt":


Pros of this method:
- It easy to do;
- You can play mm, while you have "money_fx.pcf" in particles folder; (NOT TESTED)

Cons of this method:
- You need to restart CSGO, to update your particles;
- You can only use 1 custom .pcf file at a time;
- You need to rename your custom .pcf to a specific name;
- You still need to use different method of precache (Like sm plugins) to see your custom particles on servers;
