With this program you can easily create vpk files from hud folders, change HUD, CFG and user launch option presets so you don't have to write it manually every time you have to.

Hi! Some of my friends asked me to create a program that can change hud and cfg easily, because they always do it manually (they use 1 for casting and 1 for normal playing). I have created it, and now i want to share it with you. **How it works**: You can swap the contents of the cfg and folder that with cfg_ (e.g.: cfg_cast) starts. These must be under tf folder. You can swap the contents of the cfg and folder starts with cfg_ (e.g.: cfg_cast) folders content. These must be under tf folder. HUD Change: under /tf/custom/ there must be vpk and old_vpk files. You can browse to your HUD’s folder and convert it to old_vpk (the program will automatically place the converted file under custom folder). (if you have only old_vpk files, you have to change one of the files extension to vpk) Launch Option presets: you can easily change launch options for TF2. ![CFG & HUD Switcher](http://jimmorrison723.hu/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/cfghudswitcherV14.png "CFG & HUD Switcher")

    Is there anyway to change .old_vpk to .vpk back? I messed up.

    Edit: Nevermind, I fixed it.

    > Do you have your own knowledge to create a custom VPk file maker?the default one doesn't work due to my large skin file sizes

    Hello !
    Sorry for the late answer.
    I checked the documents about the VPK file format, and i still don't know if i could do that. I could do a VPK reader, but creater... I don't know. I will try when i have time for that.

    It's not a recording tool, but it can make it easier if you want to user fraps or programs like that for recording.
    The basic concept was to make it easier to change HUD. A community member said it would be good if he could easily change his hud (he use 1 for playing and 1 for casting), but it's boring to do it manually.
    So with this program you can change your hud, cfg, and now you can start tf2 with different launch options (after the first release a few user said it would be nice to launch tf2 with different launch options, so i built it in). You create the presets, there is no movie config built in in the application.
