A Tutorial for Portal

v_portalgun.vtf

Hello! Have you ever thing about playing Portal with a custom portal gun? Now you can do this, just follow me step by step, alright? Okay, lets begin! Steps: 1. Download and install VTFEdit from [here](http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/) 2. Go to here (Portal's folder): `Portal\portal\materials\models\weapons\v_models\v_portalgun` 3. Open "v_portalgun.vtf" file with VTFEdit. 4. Now you see the portal gun's texture. Press a right click, and click on "Copy". 5. Run a picture-editor, and paste it in a new picture. 6. Edit your portal gun. 7. Save your texture in a PNG file. 7. Open simple VTFEdit: File -> Import, and select your portalgun texture. 8. Save it to "v_portalgun.vtf", and drag it into the v_portalgun folder and overwrite it. 10. Start Potal, and if you did it right, your re-textured portal gun is in your hands :) Thanks for reading, and I hope it works for you. P.S.: Yes, my English is poor, and I'm new here!

    It's okay, it's not the worst I've seen, just keep playing games, text heavy if at all possible, get the hang of those tenses.

    May I recommend copying the edited texture, and pressing Ctrl+V in VTFEdit instead of importing it? That saves time for me. (If not using the BGR888 or BGRA8888 format, saving the file somewhere may still be a good idea, if one wants to edit the texture further later.)

    Your English is flawed, get a tutor; also the keyword description clearly says you have to separate each tag with a new line.
