How to make your console transparent

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike 1.6

Updates

Guide Revision 8mo
  • Addition Added a new screenies for the location of TrackerScheme.res
  • Improvement Revised the overall guide description

Add a new spice for your Console! --by making it Transparent ;^)

Hello, this guide is very simple and fast, and as the title says, gives a transparent look to your console. 

What we have to do first, is open the file named
TrackerScheme.res , which can be located in directory: "C: / Program Files / Counter-Strike 1.6 / platform / Resource" (depends on the location of your game). Don't forget to Backup the original File first.



 Open it
using Notepad and look for these lines:

1
2
3
4
// background colors
"ControlBG" "76 88 68 255" // background color of controls
"ControlDarkBG" "90 106 80 255" // darker background color; used for background of scrollbars
"WindowBG" "62 70 55 255"  // background color of text edit panes (chat, text entries, etc.)

 They can be changed for either of these two codes depending on your preferred choice: 

New Transparent Console:

1
2
3
// background colors
"ControlBG"
"10 0 0 125" // background color of controls
"ControlDarkBG" "75 75 75 0" // darker background color; used for background of scrollbars
"WindowBG" "75 75 75 0" // background color of text edit panes (chat, text entries, etc.)



Common Transparent Console:

1
2
3
// background colors

"ControlBG"
"62 70 55 125" // background color of controls
"ControlDarkBG" "75 75 75 0" // darker background color; used for background of scrollbars
"WindowBG" "75 75 75 0" // background color of text edit panes (chat, text entries, etc.)



*You can experiment on the color codes using RGBA format to fit for your desired one if you don't prefer the two transparent consoles given above*

That's It! Enjoy your transparent console :D
