I am trying to create a menu background. I have followed tutorials that told me to save a **background01.vtf** to my Steam folder
cstrike/materials/console
However in-game I do not see my background, the default background is still present... Can anyone help me?!?

    My custom background is called background01_widescreen.vtf. Its 2048x1024 and is in materials/console/ and it works fine. Dunno if that helps.

Wow that made it work for a second while the game was loading, then when it loaded the background went black. Any suggestions?
