//==================================== //Changing the Counter-Strike Source logo font by J2K! //==================================== This tutorial will teach you how to change the font of the Counter-Strike logo on the menu screen of Counter-Strike Source when you start the game. //==================================== //Setting up your font for CS: Source to use. //==================================== First of all, navigate to your Counter-Strike Source directory. C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Counter-Strike Source Open the cstrike folder, and if it does not exist, create a folder named resource. Now go to C:\Windows\Fonts. Copy the TrueType Font file you wish to use for the Counter-Strike logo and paste it into C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\Counter-Strike Source\cstrike\resource Rename your font file to cslogo.ttf And finally, right click on cslogo.ttf and click properties. Tick the Read only check box and click Ok. You can now go into your game and view your font in the menu! Happy fonting (: Jay.

    When I do this, I just get.. I think... Arial instead of the font file I used

    Any advices? Please PM me.

    maybe the font is in wrong fileformat?
    Make sure that the font is a .ttf file.

    Yea I tried several fonts but it didn't work.
    Maybe you have to change the actual Type-Face name?

    Shown in the red box. Renaming the file doesn't change that.
    Not sure though, but I even tried a few default fonts which also didn't work..
