A Brief Intro: Ok, this is my first tool for css, ive seen people asking how to change the background and many tuts on how to do it. Well good notice is that now you have this tool that does the job in a few clicks. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This program changes the counter strike source background to whatever picture you want. Just 4 simple steps. 1. Locate your counter-strike source folder. (Usually in c:\program files\steamapps\counter-strike source\) 2. Open a bmp or jpg picture. 3. Select Ingame Resolution For The Background Picture 4. click on "Make Background" Thats all, now you can enjoy your custom background :D ----------------------------------- Credits ----------------------------------- Programming: Julio C.

    Ok, first pop up window is for locating counter strike folder, thats why it only accepts hl2.exe. That you will have to do it only once. Then when you load a picture an make the background, notice the message that says "this will take a while", that means you have to wait, compressing a DXT its not like saving a BMP, it takes a while.

    Gosh, guys! Listen up! IT is not possible to add more resolutions, its IMPOSSIBLE because the background can NOT run in any other resolutions then the ones given, except for 512x512 (Which is way to low for anyone to use) and 4096x4096 (which is way too high for anyone to use) So you CAN'T JUSTIFY THE RESOLUTIONS!!!

    I would have to actually hack the source engine to include the resolutions your asking for -.- just 1024x1024 will suit all your needs. Notice in the preview you see the picture stretched, but inside the game the picture will adjust to your resolution.
