'for dummies' ;D

Hello, I've been asked how to install backgrounds for CS:S alot recently so this beginner friendly tutorial will help you for sure!

Everything is detailed in screenshots, just follow steps :D


  1. Picture 1 : Download a game background on gamebanana (manual download => download), save the file and go to Downloads directory in your file explorer
  2. Picture 2 : Right click on it, extract here (if you have no extraction option, get 7zip here or Winrar here)
  3. Open the folder that appeared in Downloads, if both .vtf files are in "whateverpackname?\materials\console" then you can copy the folder, if not, just create folders to get the same path.
  4. Paste it to your custom steam directory (C:\YOURNAME\Games?\steamapps\common\Counter-Strike Source\cstrike\custom) and you're ready to enjoy the background next time you launch your game!

    Picture 3 :

    If you can't find steam directory, open steam library, right click on CS:S, click on Properties,
    go to local files tab, and click on browse local files !


    I hope it helped you ! Enjoy your backgrounds :)
