1.) GO to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\materials\models\infected\ put the boomer file in there if u dont have the folders make them.

2.) now go to C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead put the withe list in there.

3.) 3) Now, look for pak01_dir.vpk in the same folder. Open it using Notepad ++ to open it. Make sure you backup the original pak01_dir.vpk file.

4.) When you opened up pak01_dir.vpk with Notepad++, press Ctrl+h to find this line:

$baseTexture "models\infected\boomer/Boomer2" $bumpmap "models\infected\boomer/Boomer_normal" $allowdiffusemodulation 0 $phong 1 $phongfresnelranges "[.01 .15 1]" $phongtint "[.8 .8 1]" $phongboost 14 $phongexponent 16

Change it so it looks like this.

Enjoy your new skin....

    Hi, I'm doing a project called "Christmas Infected". and I love that Santa Skin. So I'm asking permission if I could use that Santa Skin for my project. Let me know if this is okay.

    Pros: Comical, works, looks great, epic detail, clever, original. Cons: None about skin. Shame about the "animation" and "model" section in the ratings. Drops your score a lot. Improvements: Fix up the ratings. Not skin related though.
