=========================================== Release Name: Medic Beam: Pinwheel Release Author: payohtea aka p3y0t3 Email: =========================================== =========================================== Whats been changed/Added =========================================== healsign.vmt healsign.vtf medicbeam_curl.vmt medicbeam_curl.vtf medicbeam_curl_bump.vtf medicbeam_curl_env.vtf =========================================== Install Instructions =========================================== Simply unzip into your Team Fortress 2 dir, recursing directory structure. Files should end up in: %steam_user_dir%\Team Fortress 2\tf2\materials\effects. =========================================== Notes from Author.. =========================================== In a desperate attempt to strike a good visual balance for both teams' medics, pinwheel was born. HOWEVER. for lord knows what reason, reds' beam seems to always look better... 'Cept for the case of the default Valve graphic, which is pretty much equal... Hrm, maybe I am missing something here =) Anyhow, enjoy, and keep it lit <\\\\\\\%*~~~^~~ ~~^~ PS: If there is enough interest in such a thing, I may release a little windoze app that allows you to quickly and easily either: a) load TF2 "styles" with multiple types of fx that can be quickly loaded\unloaded or b) just changes individual aspects of the graphics, for full customization The only thing really keeping me from having it done and out the door is a easy way to determine what the individual's %steam_user dir is on a per-installation basis. IE: my dir structure would be \program files\steam\steamapps\pay_o_tea\etc etc etc. If anyone knows the answer to this dilemna, much praise kudos and thanx =)

    If someone can respond, where would I put the 6 folders? There is no "effects" folder in materials. I tried sprites, but that doesn't do anything. I really want this, but I can't find any way to install it.

    This looks good and fits in the game, unlike a lot of the things you can find on the internets.
