How to make a skin!

A Tutorial for CS2D

Things needed:

  • Image editing software (I recommend using paint.net or gimp)

  • Access to game files




Tutorial

  1. To start off you are going to need to go into the game's files. This can be done by going to Steam > Library > Right clicking CS:2D > Properties > Local files > Browse local files.

  2. Now you need to find a folder called "gfx". Then look for a folder called "weapons".

  3. OPTIONAL Copy the orginal weapon files to another folder in case you need them. Do this by selecting all the files with the weapon you want to reskin and then by pressing CTRL + C. Now open the folder you want to copy them to and Right click the folder > Paste.

  4. Find the weapon you want to edit. Now you want to open the file in your editing software. This is done by Right clicking the file > Open with > Select software you are using. Start with the file named [weapon you choose]_m (this is what the weapon looks like on the buy screen). Replace [weapon you choose] with the name of your weapon.

  5. Now you can change any pixel in it that is not pink unless you want to change the shape of the weapon. The pink is used to as an alpha channel which in game is used to be transparent.

  6. When you are done applying this skin go to File > Save. This is typically located at the top of your editing software in the left corner.

  7. Now open the next file for the skin, this should be [weapon you choose]_d (what the weapon looks like when dropped on the ground ingame), repeat steps 5-6 on this file however before you save, change the background to RGB 255 0 255 or HEX FF00FF or HSV 300 100 100 otherwise the image will have a white background.

  8. Now find the file named [weapon you choose] (this is the what the weapon looks like when you are holding it) and repeat steps 5-7.

  9. Now you can load up the game and it will show your weapon skin! If you have any problems then post them in the comments and I will try to help you solve them.




Notes

  • I will add photos in the future.

  • Don't edit [weapon you choose]_k! Leave it how it is!

  • Some items such as knifes only need one file changed.

    The tutorial doesn't explains quite well. You've listed the tutorial as a beginner level tutorial, even though some of the points you've made their would confuse anyone who's just going to begin skinning for the said game.

    First of all, it lacks screenshots. A good tutorial's definitive point is to include some decent screenshots. Again, this beginner's tutorial is not so beginner friendly.

    You also failed to explain what's the difference between weapon_k, weapon_m etc. Also, you could've chosen a weapon, say, Glock as an example to use throughout the tutorial. This would've made it easier to understand.

    Now you can change any pixel in it that is not pink unless you want to change the shape of the weapon. The pink is used to as an alpha channel which in game is used to be transparent.

    That information is quite useless too if somebody wants to make a weapon from scratch. You're tutorial's name implies you're going to teach how to make a skin, yet this step defies it. You're actually teaching how to re-skin or re-color instead of making a new skin from scratch.

    Now find the file named [weapon you choose] (this is the what the weapon looks like when you are holding it) and repeat steps 5-7.

    What is this step even supposed to mean? as said before, this would've been a lot more easier to understand given that you provided the meanings of k or m or used a weapon's name for a example.

    Unless the post you took from reddit is yours, it's against the rules to copy someone's work off, cause you've posted it exact verbatim as it was on reddit.
    Forget what I've said
