How to change or remove the CS:S logo color on main menu.

Have you ever wanted to change the color of the CS:S logo because you want it to match your custom background wallpaper? or maybe just remove it? In this tutorial I will show you how. ### Programs needed: + [GCFScape](>GCFScape "GCFScape") + Notepad (Notepad++ is recommended) 1. Browse to your cstrike folder (default: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike) Look for the file named "cstrike\_vpk\_dir.vpk". Open that file with **GCFScape** by simply double-clicking the file. 2. Then click on the "resource" folder on the left of the screen and then extract the file named: "ClientScheme.res" to this location: **C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike\resource** Once you've done that, you can close GCFScape. 3. Now locate to "cstrike\resource" folder and open the file you've just extracted (ClientScheme.res). If your computer ask you for wich program to use, then choose Notepad (Notepad++ is much better!) Scroll down until you find this:
// Top-left corner of the "Counter-Strike" on the main screen
"Main.Title1.X"		"32"
"Main.Title1.Y"		"180"
"Main.Title1.Color"	"255 255 255 255"
// Top-left corner of the "SOURCE" on the main screen "Main.Title2.X" "380" "Main.Title2.Y" "205" "Main.Title2.Color" "255 255 255 80"
Or you can do it the easy way and just press CTRL + F and search for: "// Top-left corner of the "Counter-Strike" on the main screen" (without quotes) Then it will pop up. 4. In order to change the colors you have to change the color code numbers in "Main.Title1.Color" and "Main.Title2.Color" **(Look at the picture picture above)**. Use a picture edit program like Adobe photoshop or you can go to this site [HTML Color Codes]( "HTML Color Codes") to get color codes you want, if you want the logo to be invisible, just change the opacity numbers to 0 (Look at the picture). After you've typed the numbers correctly, save it (CTRL + S). Then launch the game and you're done!
