- How to modify Css GUI - Well I 'm gonna show you how to modify main menu text color, font & tall in what you want. - first you have to **locate & find** "**SourceScheme.res**" file in the cstrike\_pak\_dir.vpk and move it to your **resource** folder. - open it with notepad or something - find a part that looks like that: ![Maintmenutextcolor & MainMenu.Armedtextcolor](http://uppix.net/3/5/f/10abaf3921ce5a487e65e3d716e21.jpg "Change color text of the main menu") 2 - You have to modify values of "**Mainmenutextcolor**" "**0 0 0 255**" and "**MainMenu.ArmedTextColor**" "**200 200 200 255**" **explications**: suit of numbers means a **unique color** **+ its transparency** (0:invisible; 255:totaly visible) it comes from **RGBA** 'system' (**Red Green Blue Alpha**). 3 - [Visit this site](http://web.njit.edu/~kevin/rgb.txt.html "RGBA color picker") (for example) to find color and exact suit of rgba numbers: ![RGBA color picker tool online](http://uppix.net/3/a/d/bac3c2015fe8732d6ca663911a58f.jpg "RGBA Color Picker Online Tool") This was for the color of the main menu text (one for its color, other for when mouse is over it: "armedtextcolor") 4 - Now **change tall & font**: **tall**: always in "SourceScheme.res", you have to find a text like this: ![Tall font of CSS main menu](http://uppix.net/5/8/8/87912bd904ec729003e312d894949.jpg "Change tall font of Css Main Manu") 5 - "**Tall**" "**28**": **change 28** to higher for higher tall, etc... 6 - **Font**: type your custom font name in place of "Transformers movie" (or whatever font name it is): ![Change font in sourcescheme.Res](http://uppix.net/1/5/3/48c263bce0b4c3ef5095fb0124b95.jpg "Change font in sourcescheme.res by iskander71") - in this example, change "transformers movie" to your font name (**without ttf**, and it had to be exactly the same name otherwise it doesn' t work). 7 - After that you have to add last thing in the bottom of "Sourcescheme.Res". it looks like this: ![Custom font in sourcescheme.res](http://uppix.net/f/8/b/cd1292e228708da027ea51355245d.jpg "Before adding custom font") 8 - So **add a text line** with the name of your font, with ttf this time, like this (example): ![Adding custom font in sourcescheme](http://uppix.net/f/b/8/add90d1dd7e269101a474317d967e.jpg "Adding custom font") - This line means where the game can find your custom font. it is in '**resource**' folder then now: 9 - you have to finally **add a copy of your font in the "resource" folder** & this is it !! ![Add custom font in "resource" folder](http://uppix.net/5/2/7/6aa563ce7e12223c133af735fc7cb.jpg "Add custom font copy in "resource" folder") Make sure to have type the right name font, without ttf and after with, don' t forget to add the font to "resource" folder, don' t forget to "save" before to go test it in Css, then your' done !!! iskander71 http://iskande.doomby.com
