Alright guys, I've found that when I use winzip to extract the file to the cstrike folder it just dumps them straight in without creating the parent folders for the files. I switched to Winrar (http://www.rarlab.com/) which works perfectly. You just extract to the cstrike folder and all the parent folders are created and files put in the correct places.

Hope this helps somewhat

To bad I wasnt on in the evening yesterday :roll:
But there is something weird about my problem.
Becouse I did instal everything using winrar and then double-checked if everything was in the right folder. But when I start up CSS and get in a server, I still have my default m4a1 skin. And yes, I even have the prob in non-vac servers.

I dont think there is a difference between Vac and non with skins is there. There is only one problem if the servers consitency is set to 1.

Not quite true there - there are 3 levels of consistency
2 - full blown, everything must be the same as the server
1 - skins and models can differ, but models cannot be overly large (stops models that give an unfair advantage... usually)
0 - no consistency
I have found i can sometimes connect to sv_consistency 1 server fine, and other times not.
Also - remeber servers seem to start up with a defaut of 2 (even though it reads 1), and then changes on the map change.


As for your sin problem, did the pack include an M4A1 skin?

i got a skin to work! but the nuke 24/7 server is not letting me use the skin!
it gives me an error message like "missing skin ak47" or something like that...
what is the server consistancy set to?

Yep it did, I downloaded a m4a1 skin with a laser ontop of it from csbanana.

Do skins work on the LNY servers?

helios
11-12-05, 01:10 PM
um, there is no reason why they don't. The only problem you may get is the server forcing consistency on the files, which happens with over-sized models

Together Burner and I sorted this problem. It seemed that steam was working out of a different folder than the one in which the skins where.

Sorted and I hope you enjoy em Burner - better skins make the game better - at least for me :)
