So basically this just changes the color and size of the Menu Text and it adds several subtitles to make it closer to the WON version of the Half-Life menu while keeping the more convenient menu design the Steam Half-Life had.

It also includes a background that simulates the one featured in the original WON version.

Now, here are some features that are not included in this mod. (Consider it a To-Do list)

-The background is NOT animated. I don't really think that's possible.

-It does NOT include the grey text featured on the right of each subtitle. (It may be possible, but I don't know how to do that.)

-The subtitles do NOT have glow effects like in the original. (Once again, It may be possible but I don't know how to do it.)

Also something to note is that the background is a 720p image. (I couldn't scale the original splash.png any further, so I apologize for the inconvenience)

I would also appreciate every kinds of contributions to this small project, to make it look more polished and/or closer to the original WON version.

Most of the credit goes to the HLImprovementTeam for making the base of most of the work being displayed here. Also special thanks to: deuxsonic (https://www.reddit.com/user/deuxsonic) for providing me with the font used in the main menu and a clean background I could use.

It includes a Widescreen and a 4:3 Mode. To install either, just drag the contents inside the "16:9 Aspect Ratio" for widescreen, or the "4:3 Aspect Ratio" for 4:3 into the Valve folder in your Half-Life directory.

PS: I'd appreciate it if you rated and commented on this project again if you saw it a week ago. It was withheld for being in the wrong category and I wouldn't want it to fade away because of that.

    If you can, make for CS and other GoldSrc games.

    Note: The 4:3 background is the same of the 16:9, making black bars on screen, please fix it.

Everything but the design, which was made by Valve.
