Part 12 - Installing SourceMod Plug-ins

* Installing SourceMod Plug-ins *

Installing SourceMod plug-ins is pretty simple. Download the compiled .smx plug-in file and copy it to addons\sourcemod\plugins. Some plug-ins may have translations (place them in addons\sourcemod\translations) and/or they might generate a configuration file that needs editing (found in cfg\sourcemod).
