    Something's wrong with this tutorial.

    The Z Origin and the Height will be the Z Max. If you are using Photoshop, convert the image into Indexed Mode, then save as .bmp (8 bits/pixel).

    Making a minimap overview for the map? Watch this video.

    Image editor used in the video: GIMP

    This applies on Day of Defeat, Half-Life, and Condition Zero maps.

    I have tested and it works.

    I just have make an overview for css_dust2_go and css_train_go.
