Hi, this is Porcupine, creating my second tutorial
I made this because the other tutorials on this subject were hard to understand (all except one), and got bad reviews, I hope this is the opposite.
Ok you will need VTF-Edit
You can download from hereStep 1: Now what you do, find any picture that is 1024 x 768 or whatever resolution you play Counter-Strike Source in.
TIP: You could get a screen-shot from in-game
Step 2: Now open VTF Edit. Go to File>Import and navigate to your picture. Click ok to the option box that comes up.
Once its imported (that may take a while) it should look squished sideways, thats ok. Now go to file>save as and go to
C:/Program Files/Valve/Steam/SteamApps/*accountname*/counter-strike source/cstrike/materials/console (you may need to create that folder) and save the file as Background01.vtf
Step 3: Now open up Counter-strike Source and stare at your new background.
If there is anything wrong with this please post
If there is anything good about this please post
Detail: The detail is clear and split in to paragraphs and is to a relevant point and does not strive to another topic.
Usefulness: Useful to certain extents, certainly useful for people who design game back grounds for others.
Readability: A slight problem of indentation, but I do think this is still a very easy affair, well done for doing such a easy tutorial for people who have trouble reading. To the point and does not contain any slang or colloquialisms(example: ripping - putting data on to dvd/cd.)
Very nice, man :D
i've been working with PhotoShop in over 2years, so i'm going to make som backgrounds, when my PC is back from repairing xD
I guess i can save it from PS as png. or jpg., and then open in VTF Edit. :P
