How to Install Skins

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Source

START
Note: This is a simple guide for beginners and does not go too in depth into download misc files and props and what not. First off, you will need to download Winrar, find it at www.rarlabs.com Or just google "Winrar" and plenty of links should come up. Download and install it. Second, go to the "My Documents" folder on your computer and make a folder called "CSS Skins" DOWNLOADING SKINS
Now go to the skins tab on top of the website. Click on CS:S and then choose the gun (or player skin) you want. Next, go down to the "download" link and download the skin to the "CSS Skins" folder you created earlier. INSTALLING WEAPON SKINS
Now that you have your skin downloaded, go to your "CSS Skins" folder and open the skin folder you downloaded. (If its a .rar file your Winrar program you downloaded should open it. If not, you installed it wrong or there was a problem during the installation) Now extract the file(s) out of the ziped or rar file to your "My Documents/CSS Skins" folder. The contents in the folder should be something like "cstrike, or sounds, matrials, models, etc". Once downloaded, highlight the extracted files and choose 'cut'. Now, go to the start menu and "My Computer/program files (x86)/steam/steamApps/common/counter strike source/cstrike/custom", make a new folder and dump all the files in there. Note: If the file name is 'cstrike' that was in the compressed (zip or rar) file, make sure the underlying folder is 'custom', if so then just put it in the counter strike source folder. Now your weapon skin/model should work! Check it out in game and have fun! INSTALLING PLAYER SKINS
Now that you have your player skin downloaded, follow the instructions above. But if the file that was in the player skin downloaded says (for example) ct\_urban or t\_arctic then you will need to 'cut' the folder that says (for example) ct\_sas and paste it to your "My Computer/program files (x86)/steam/steamApps/common/counter strike source/cstrike/custom/my\_custom\_skins/materials/models/player" folder and paste the extracted skin folder in there. Now your player skins should work! INSTALLING RAGDOLLS
To install ragdolls, simply put the "models" folder in your "My Computer/program files (x86)/steam/steamApps/common/counter strike source/cstrike/custom/my\_custom\_skins" directory. The base files are .phys file extentions. For example: ct\_urban.phy or t\_leet.phy are two examples. Those base files go into your "My Computer/program files (x86)/steam/steamApps/common/counter strike source/cstrike/custom/my\_custom\_skins/materials/models/player" directory. CREDITS

    Posted by NOOBBOX I have problem with my css if i change gun skin it holds the gun in stomach can you help me??
    I have the same problem.Heh i hoped u could help
    That's to do with the skin you downloaded, not the way you installed it.
    Oh.I was hoping I screwed up so u could tell me how to fix it ,now i cant fix anything.And why about all the skins i downloaded are wrong?
    It's for every single skin you download? Can you explain the problem in more detail?
    First versions of css had these problems, update your css.

    Posted by donttalktome Yes solid_snake.WWhen i look at abot the stupid gun is stuck in the bots stomach.But,when i use the gun it is perfectly okay in first person.
    That has nothing to do with the way you install a skin. Whoever made the world models messed them up real bad.
