While it's been many years since I played Counter-Strike I have recently purchased CS GO, and want to know a few things.

1 - what is the DIR and filename of the player config on OSX?

2 - are custom skins still something that is doable?

I'll just break your question up:

What is the DIR and filename of the player config on OSX?

This varies depending on your Steam setup and folder location, but by default, it should be in:

~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive

... which puts it in:

~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike Global Offensive/csgo/cfg

Are custom skins still something that is doable?

Depends on your definition of 'custom skins', custom modded skins are only possible on third-party servers (and is deemed 'illegal' by Valve).
This is due to skins [in CS:GO] being an economical item, which can be created by submitting to their curated workshop to be 'sold' or placed in crates, and obtained (in-game) by unlocking it through a crate (and purchased key), via the community market or from drops.

  • I read somewhere that the player config is not in that dir unless you make oneconfig.cfg - Is this correct? @aytimothy Mar 24, 2016 at 3:20
  • No. It creates one when you start the game for the first time.

  • hmm, that wasn't the case for me. I opened the game twice now with no such file in there. You're saying config.cfg will be in that folder on its own ? @aytimothy Mar 24, 2016 at 3:28
  • Why is this post getting so many downvotes? Mar 24, 2016 at 8:57
