Postby tnarocks » Sat Aug 13, 2016 2:08 am

Im talking about one where i can select a admin skin or a donator skin or a regular skin. This has nothing to do with knives or anything like that. I mean something like these http://gamebanana.com/skins/105931.

Hey tnarocks, could list the features you want to have available in the skin chooser plugin?

I want it to open up a menu when you join so you can select the skin. So if your admin you have the choice of the admin skin or a donator or the public skin. And if you donate to the server you can either pick the donator skin or the public. And regular people get the public skin and so do bots. And maybe have it setup by steam id or a diff way. And also have it it so that it auto downloads the skins.

Then to setup the skins you would have to make a folder in the sp folder called skins and then add other folders called admin_ct or admin_t for the admins. And donator_ct or t for the donators. And public_ct or t for the public players. I kinda want it setup the way that mani admin had there skin plugin setup. Was easy and friendly to setup.

If you change the paths of custom skins without recompiling them for those new paths, the skins won't work as far as I know.

If what I remember and stated above is correct and if I don't misunderstand you, perhaps a better way would be to have a single config file where you configure which skins are meant for who, whilst allowing the skins to keep their original paths as intended by their creators.

That's true

That's how it's done. Well, I may have forgotten how it worked in Mani's, but it seems to me that those folder were for config files themselves, not the models and materials. Say, cfg/mani_admin_plugin/skins/admin/skin1.cfg. Anyways, such structure is dumb. Binding to directory names is a wrong thing to do, everything should be in a configs.

If the new path and the old path contain the same amount of characters then you can just hexedit the new path into the mdl

I'm kinda 100% sure it is possible with SP. But it's kind of takes a lot of effort.

Doldol this is not about knife or some other type of skin. Its aout a player model skin like halo skins or some other skin.
