Installing GUIs/Sprites

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike 1.6

How to install CS GUIs and Sprites
================== First of all you need to locate your cstrike folder. It should be located here: **C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/common/Half-Life/cstrike**. It is in this folder and the folders within we shall put files.
How to install a menu background
------------------ 1. Un-zip the archive you have downloaded. This can be done by right clicking on the downloaded archive (.zip file). If the file ends in .rar you might need WinRAR to un-zip it. 1. Inside the un-zipped folder there should be 12 files ending in .tga (in some cases there might be more than 12 .tga files). 1. Now copy all the 12 .tga files which starts with "800." 1. Find your cstrike folder and open it. Inside there should be a folder named resource. If there isn't a folder named resource you must create it! 1. Open the resource folder. Inside this folder there should be a folder named background. Open it. If there isn't a folder named background you must create it! 1. Paste the 12 .tga files starting with "800" into the background folder. You have now installed your new menu background. NOTE If there are more .tga files which doesn't start with "800" they should be put in the resource folder. Not in the background folder.
How to install a radar
------------------ 1. Un-zip the archive you have downloaded. This can be done by right clicking on the downloaded archive (.zip file). If the file ends in .rar you might need WinRAR to un-zip it. 1. Inside the un-zipped folder there should be file(s) ending in .spr. Those are sprites. The full names of the sprites can be: radar640.spr or\and radaropaque640.spr. 1. Now copy the .spr file(s). 1. Find your cstrike folder and open it. Inside there should be a folder named sprites. If there isn't a folder named sprites you must create it! 1.

TIP Swap between solid and transparent radar by using cl\_radartype 0 and cl\_radartype 1. NOTE If your solid or transparent radar doesn't work your hud.txt file is probably corrupted. Download the original hud.txt [here](http://files.gamebanana.com/bitpit/_282-.txt "").
How to install a scope
------------------ 1. Un-zip the archive you have downloaded. This can be done by right clicking on the downloaded archive (.zip file). If the file ends in .rar you might need WinRAR to un-zip it. 1. Inside the un-zipped folder there should be a file ending in .spr. That is a sprite. The file name of this sprite is often (but not always) sniper\_scope.spr. If the name isn't sniper_scope.spr there should also be a file named weapon\_awp.txt. 1. Copy the sprite (.spr file), and the weapon\_awp(.txt) if there is one. (If there are files named scope\_arc.tga, scope\_arc\_ne.tga, scope\_arc\_nw.tga and scope\_arc\_sw.tga you should copy them too. 1. Find your cstrike folder and open it. Inside there should be a folder named sprites. If there isn't a folder named sprites you must create it! 1.

    Regardless of what this particular tutorial is about, this is what all tutorial writers should strive for as far as formatting, clarity, and detail.
