OPENING THE FILE
1. download GCFscape 2. go to your 'C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike' folder 3. double click on 'cstrike\_pak\_dir.vpk' 4. go to '\recource\' 5. extract 'GameMenu.res' to your '\cstrike\recource\' folder 6. open "GameMenu.res" it will look like this:
"GameMenu"
{
"1" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_ResumeGame" "command" "ResumeGame" "OnlyInGame" "1" } "2" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_Disconnect" "command" "Disconnect" "OnlyInGame" "1" } "3" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_PlayerList" "command" "OpenPlayerListDialog" "OnlyInGame" "1" } "4" { "label" "" "command" "" "OnlyInGame" "1" } "5" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_FindServers" "command" "OpenServerBrowser" } "6" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_CreateServer" "command" "OpenCreateMultiplayerGameDialog" } "7" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_Friends" "command" "OpenFriendsDialog" } "8" { "label" "#GameUI_ReportBug" "command" "engine bug" } "9" { "label" "#GameUI_LaunchBenchmark" "command" "OpenBenchmarkDialog" } "10" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_Options" "command" "OpenOptionsDialog" } "11" { "label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_Quit" "command" "Quit" }
}
RULES TO FOLLOW
1. you may NEVER EVER EVER edit the command("command" "...") box. that will totaly screw up the game. (trust me) 2. the "OnlyInGame" parameter can be set to either 1 or 0. if set to 1, that menu will ONLY show up if your playing in a server, NOT right when you start up the game if set to 0, the menu will show up in BOTH, when it starts up, AND when your ingmame 3. to edit what it says, edit the "Label" parameter.
EDITING THE FILE
so, for this line:
	"11"
	{
		"label" "#GameUI_GameMenu_Quit"
		"command" "Quit"
}
if i wanted it to say "Penis" instead of "Quit", i would change that whole thing to:
	"11"
	{
		"label" "Penis"
		"command" "Quit"
	}
and now save and go into css and this is what you'll see! ;) and all menu items can be customized so good luck and merry editing!

    You can edit pretty much all of it safely

    mine has ZB_LO3/ko3/rconpassword/ED_config/a name change and a button to join my war server.

    {
    "label" "#ED config "
    "command" "engine rcon exec edcssmr15.cfg"
    "OnlyInGame" "1"
    }

    "11"
    {
    "label" "#GameUI_ko3"
    "command" "engine rcon zb_ko3"
    "OnlyInGame" "1"
    }
