Blue Shift WON Menu Re-Creation - A Mod for Half-Life: Blue Shift

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.

PSS: Apparently, there has been a mishap in non-English Operating Systems where the font displayed in the menu is incorrect. While I can't go over and make new versions of the mod for every single OS locale, you can still fix this issue by going over to TrackerScheme.res and changing the "MenuLarge" font name from "Courier New Bold" to your Operating System's equivalent name.

    You set the 4:3 man imenu font to Courier New Bold, but a problem occurs. My Windows is the brazilian version so the "bold" is "negrito", because that the file load the worong font file. The fix that i found is to manual rename "bold" for "negrito".

    I think you should include a note abaout this and explaning how to change, because in other operational systems
     this can happen. It's a Windows problem, don'ts worry.

    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.
