you can keep the modified sound files, and delete the models. thus will have the new sounds and the original skins.

I wish skins were easier to install tbh. For TF2 I had afew skins but you can't beat the originals.

Having said that you should see how hard it is to install skins in L4D!

Jeeze.
Apparently you can't even use them online.
TC- you sir, are one pain in the ass!
Imp- you've been offline for a while and you dont have a life. i am confused.
Kan- War is annoying to play against I will agree, but he isn't cheating.


:D

I use high detail M4 and AK but keep default sounds. Thats all. Not really a fan of the other skins.

Yeah i've had it come up saying you can't join the server because so and so file is inconsistent or some thing like that and so i just try again and it works , happens first time every time i try to make a server which is annoying but yeah , it should usually work if you just try again .

i think some times skins make me play better , but then some times i use bad guns because the skins just make them look sooo damn nice lol.

I have played the game for over 3 years. I only started messing with gun skins recently. I got totally hooked. I have 2 full setups, a "fun" setup and a setup dedicated to default animations, leaving the main guns intact like the M4 and AK.

What is the point? The game is 4 years old and looks it. It's still a great game but putting in gun skins just gives it some modern polish. There are extremely talented and dedicated gun skinners out there who have created for CSS some of the best looking skins and animations in ANY modern game, imo better than CoD4 or 5 and even better than the brand new FEAR, which I was gutted when I installed cause I immediately thought "Christ these reload anims are pants!" The only exception is Far Cry 2 which does have tasty gun skins in it.

I have put together some screens for you to look at, just what was lying in my screenies folders. If peeps are interested I could post some more and even give you pointers on how to install them properly and where to find them.

Gun skins are not hax, they just give the game a more modern look. Some skins are total garbage, granted, but CSS is a mod and is designed from the ground up to be further moddable. Anyone can download the SDK and make maps and skins, anyone. And as for a "waste of fps" lol lol lol. Unless you are running a 3-4 year old pc using gun skins won't even dent the fps.



Lets start with the basics: Beretta for USP

World view of some berettas in for Duallies

Me fav knife, and yes I did just win a Gungame :)

Image

Me fav Glock

Image

Me fav AK (Fresh will like this one :) )

Image

Some other stuff (I never use lasers when a crosshair is avail, and you can never use T auto snipers on UKCS anyway!)

Image



And now for my ultimate favourite skin, the M4 by which all others are now measured:

If anyone wants to know where to get these (FPS Banana) and/or how to install lemme know.


Enjoy :)
Have a nice day!
