Ok for anyone who wants to know how to put custom admin skins in your server, you have come to the right place.
Go to the following website: here
And download the skins you want. Open the .rar file once it has finished downloading.
Click on the Cstrike folder, and drag it onto your servers Cstrike folder. Note: This will not replace any files your server may have on it, just press yes to all
Open notepad, and copy and paste the lines located in the read-me.txt
Save the notepad as
Now, go into your server's files so it looks like this:
Note: Again, your lineup may look different but as long it is in the mani skins folder it will work the same
You will see folders that say:
Drag the predator.txt into the "admin_t" folder.
Open up the admin_t.txt and then add the line:
"Predator Admin" predator.txt
The name in quotes is the name of the skin while the admin is choosing it, the predator.txt is showing where the files can be located, you can rename the "Predator Admin" YOU CANNOT RENAME THE PREDATOR.TXT You are basically telling mani what the .txt file is called, and that .txt is telling mani where the pieces of the skin/model are placed.
Now, go into your server's cfg folder and you should see a file called mani_server.cfg
Open it with notepad, and then scroll down to the skins section (it is near the bottom about 4/5 of the way down)
You will see 8 options... Set all of them to 1 so they should look like this:
// // Module : Custom Skin Control // // Desc : The following cvars are used to configure the options for the skins //
// 0 = Dont allow admins to have admin skins, 1 = Allow admins to have admin // skins mani_skins_admin 1
// 0 = Dont allow public skins for normal players, 1 = Allow public skins // for normal players mani_skins_public 1
// 0 = Dont force first skin in list for public player, 1 = Force first skin // in list on public player mani_skins_force_public 1
// 0 = Allow all skins to be selected via ma_setskin, 1 = Only allow misc // skins to be used mani_skins_setskin_misc_only 1
// 0 = Dont auto download skin resources, 1 = auto download skin resources // to clients mani_skins_auto_download 1
// 0 = Dont allow immunity players to have reserved skins, // 1 = Allow immunity players to have reserved skins mani_skins_reserved 1
// 0 = No menu on team join, 1 = show skin chooser on team join, // 2 = show settings menu on team join mani_skins_force_choose_on_join 1
// 0 = no custom skins for bots, 1 = use random public class skins on bots mani_skins_random_bot_skins 1
Now, you should just have to change the level on your server for the skin to take effect.

Once you understand this you might want to take a look at my other tut. Here
Want access to cool stuff? As a member you can:
Hi, i got some issues i have tryed to follow ur steps as good as i can but it all ends bad, when i go on my server it is a little route there it says choose skin and then 1 standard 0 exit. I thought it was like this that it shuld come up like a menu of skins. Do you think you can help me?
if i have a skin for example and i want to make it admin skin or like that to see all the players on the server my custom skin what i have to do? it is possible?
The link that the people before me have is wrong! Download the skin-pack on maniÂ´s new website. Direct link: http://code.google.com/p/maniadminplugin/downloads/detail?name=cstrike_skins.zip
This is a good tuto, but i've lost lot of time before finding the most important thing :
======================================== 1st : INSTALL THE MANI SKIN PLUGIN !
Then everything is ok.
PROBLEM : As someone else, every time the round starts, the skins of the bots i've changed is RESET. It's a bit boring. Someone knows how to not reset the skins when the round restart ?
Please send me a message !
Ok i did it but if i start the server it says something bad string host
Very good tut. What messed me up though for a little bit and is something worth noting, is that there are two files with a very similar name and their headers are similarl, so pay close attention to which text file you are editing. To add the skins to the menu chooser, you need to add your designator (e.g. "ADMIN Skull" skull.txt to the /cstrike/cfg/mani_admin_plugin/skins/admin_t.txt file. The other file is the /cstrike/cfg/mani_admin_plugin/admin_t/admint.txt file. The headers look similar so it can be confusing when you open the file to edit it. After ensuring the changes in the main_server config are set right and editing the correct file, it works like a charm
Sorry doubble post.
To all you that can't find your 'skins'-folder You have to download the Skin Manager from Mani's website.
