    Gif sprays can only hold 6 frames of animation in most cases in games, thats too long.....also dont link to porn sites -.-

    A porn si--Oh WOW. Seriously? It's no porn site. If this is porn to you, then Jesus, I'd hate to see what's normal to you.

    This is porn to you? This is the link. Seriously. I might just buy the "Epic fail" stamp, JUST for your comment.

    Yes, technically it's a porn site, but not everything on a porn site has to be pornographic, this is double true on most booru sites.

    That said, this can't really be turned into a spray unless it was maybe 64x64 due to filesize constraints, it hhas to be <512kb, that's because sprays should be just that, sprays, not a movie.

    The site link does contain porn, the 1 link is not but its a mixed bag as Dev said. If you look at the site without that huge .gif part on the url, you will see its full of weird porn, and even advertises adult products, so my comment was correct.

    Tbh this gif is just way too large, although you could probably do it by removing every other frame and making them all 64x64, and disabling generate mipmaps but it would look terrible.

    I'll explain how to do it anyways:

    First you need to extract all the frames from the gif, I personally use GifSplitter. From there, import every frame (all at once) into VTFEdit. Save the file, and place it into your logos folder along with the VMT that was created. And like Devieus said, if it's above 512kb it will appear invisible.

    edit: fuck this is kind of old
