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 an .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/valve (or steam, where ever your steam files are in)/steam/steamApps/(your account name)/counter strike source/cstrike" And dump all the files in there.
Note: If the file name is 'cstrike' that was in the compressed (zip or rar) file, then just put it in the counter strike source folder (after your account name)
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) cturban or tarctic then you will need to 'cut' the folder that says (for example) ct_sas and paste it to your "My Computer/program files/valve (or steam, where ever your steam game files are in)/steamApps/(your account name)/cstrike/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/valve (or steam, where ever your steam files are in)/steam/steamApps/(your account name)/counter strike source/cstrike" directory. The base files are .phys file extentions. For example: cturban.phy or tleet.phy are two examples. Those base files go into your "My Computer/program files/valve (or steam, where ever your steam files are in)/steam/steamApps/(your account name)/counter strike source/cstrike/models/player" directory.
