So I have noticed that lots of people ask in forums, how to uninstall skins/use original skins.
First of all... Difference between custom models and default/original models are simple: Custom models are "extra" files which change game visualy. Default/original models are files which developers have done. You can't uninstall default files. That is illegal because you EDIT the game. You can only ADD things, not to change or remove things. This makes skins legal. All files which will EDIT game are illegal. Like all .exe files. Skins edit only visualy so developers have accepted it. Back to point: default files are files which you can't see. You can overwrite them by intalling skins. When uninstalling skins this way I'm teaching you now will delete those files so program can use default files.
When you delete skins, you will only delete custom files which overwrites default files. No default files changed or edited by this way.
Be sure to backup the folders you may want to keep (like maps)
Super easy way to uninstall skins:
- So your skins are in "cstrike" folder... DELETE it. When you start Css, game will automaticly create new "cstrike" folder with all original guns and HUD's.
But if you want to uninstall only one (1) skin? I delete now my AK47 skin: 2. Go to: cstrike -> materials -> models -> weapons. There should be two (2) folders called "vmodels" and "wmodels". (see screenshot 1)
First open your "v_models" folder and delete your AK47 files (Usually that folder is named "AK47")
Then jump back to "weapons" folder and open "w_models" folder. Now search your AK47 folder again and delete it.
When you have done that go back to "cstrike" folder.
Then go to: models -> weapons. There should be lots of files for different weapons/skins. (see screenshot 2)
Search all AK47 files. (I highlighted all AK files so take look at screenshot 3) File names are named "vrifak47" and wrifak47". When you have found all AK files, just delete them.
Last part is to jump back to "cstrike" folder and locate "sound" folder. Then open "weapons" and again, delete AK47 folder.
When starting game, your ak47 skin should not exist anymore.
Thank you for reading this. And please send comments.
