  • Installing player skins

    OK... I did a search and didnt' find anything on TG about how to install a new player skin. I looked elsewhere and found

    http://www.fpsbanana.com/tuts/2106
    and a couple of others similar

    Here's the short
    I want to install the bender pack just for fun for a bit (I used to have it on CS 1.6)
    http://www.fpsbanana.com/skins/2891

    But I can't get any of them to show up except the hostages.

    Am I messing up or does there need to be some sort of server option to allow other skins to show?

    Where does one place the skins exactly?

    Any help would be appreciated... I'm feeling particularly dumb right now.

    I'm not sure but I think custom player skins are restricted on the TG servers. Custom weapons and hostages work fine though.

        Custom player skins work fine on the server, but you rarely ever see them because pretty much everyone uses TG's own skins, which override any other skins.

          that would explain it.. I installed them also. Is the overiding a server thing or some setting on the skins themselves?

            It's the server. Basically, if anyone choose the Standard option at the start of the game, you'll see them in whatever skin you currently have for the player model. However, people rarely pick that option.

                If you want to test it, start a local game and play with bots.

                  Actually player skins will not work on our server even if you have them installed and someone is using the default skin.

                    That's odd.. The other week I saw someone running around in my custom Arctic Avenger skin... Could it be a bug?

                      Does the server check some sort of embedded hash code in the skins? Perhaps you just had a skin that used the same filenames as the ones downloaded from the TG servers.

                          I just tested and confirmed that only our skins will work, I had to make a few updates to the server for it to operate properly.
