In this tutorial, I'm going to show you how to customize the scoreboard window in CS:S. 1. Open GCFscape and open C:\Program Files\steam\SteamApps\common\Counter-strike source\cstrike\cstrike\_pak\_dir.vpk. 2. Then you open the root\resource and open cstrike_english.txt(Screenshot A) after extracting it to your desktop for example. 3. Scroll down to "Cstrike\_Spec\_Ter\_Score" (with the quotes), and from there you can edit the names which will appear on the scoreboard.(Screenshot B) As you can see(hopefully), dead persons will have a Killed In Action status instead of Dead, the terrorist carrying the bomb will have a Suicide Bomber status instead of bomber and the VIP will have a VeryInvalidPerson instead of VIP. If you look further down most of you will be able to edit the menu names and descriptions if you aren't a complete noob. 4.Put the edited file in the "resource" folder in your cstrike directory. If someone wants an already edited file, just ask me. Also, pm me if you don't understand this or if I'm missing something.

    Detail: A lot of simple but yet complex vocabulary has been put in to this, just how I when I thought things could not get better
    Usefulness: This is definitely useful for people who want design their screen boards for their personal customization, or for up loading on this site.
    Readability: Very easy but try to split some of your paragraphs! All the rest are lovely and easy to read.

    Open GCFscape and open C:\Program Files\valve\steam\SteamApps\[Your Username]\Counter strike source shared.gcf.


    No, the file is in "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps", and you can edit not only "cstrike_english.txt", but also your language of your preference.

    Also, cool tutorial. I´ll test him!

    Small problem lol.

    Found the file in GCFscape.. edited the things to which I wanted, clicked save and closed everything down.

    The edited things won't stay.. have I missed a step out??

    Thanks.
