Note: The font you use must have capital letters. This is just a quick tutorial on how to change the logo font for CS: Source. What you need:
  • A font of your choosing
  • GCFScape (Optional)
  • A text editor (e.g Notepad)
Step 1:
Place your font in counter-strike source/cstrike/resource/ If the resource folder isn't there, create it.
Step 2:
Open up ClientScheme.res in your text editor(Notepad). If you don't already have it, open up GCFScape. If you do, skip to step 4.
Warning: Close Steam before opening GCFScape!! - Doesn't matter anymore. Step 3:
In GCFScape click open(or File>Open) and select counter-strike source shared.gcf Click through the folder branch to the resource folder(cstrike>resource) and look for ClientScheme.res. Right click it and click 'Extract...'. Extract it to your existing Resource folder. Now open it in your text editor. Step 4:
Find or scroll down to "ClientTitleFont". Next to "name" is the logo font. Open your font, and next to "Typeface name" is the name of your font. You need to replace "Counter-Strike Logo" with the name of your font. After the // change cslogo.ttf to your font's file name(e.g HomeRem.ttf). Important note: The name must be the actual name of the font, not the file name. If you open the font it should say that actual font name there. Almost done! Step 5:
Scroll down right to the bottom of the text. There's a section called "CUSTOM FONT FILES", this is what tells CS:S where the fonts are so it can load them, otherwise it will either show the default, or use what I think is Arial. Anyway, now you need to add an extra line to the list. Simply put the next number in the list, followed by the path to the font. File>Save and you're done! (If it prompts you for a save location, save it to the Resource folder as ClientScheme.res, replace if it asks.) Now when you open up CS:S the logo should be in the font you chose! If it isn't, make sure your font has capital letters in it and make sure you got the file names correct. Notes: "tall" under "name" is the point size of your font, bigger values will make it bigger, smaller with make it smaller. "weight" under "tall" is bold, the bigger the value, the thicker the letters, and vice-versa. To change it back to default, you can either delete ClientScheme.res or if you changed other things in there you want to keep, just change everything back to what it was. You can find your fonts in C:/WINDOWS/Fonts or Control Panel>Fonts. Thanks for reading! Hope it worked for you too. -Fibbs

    Pros: Clear, consise.
    Cons: None
    Improvements: None
    Notes: It should be important to note that the "name" field MUST include the actual name of the font, not it's filename.

    Someone please help i was trying to change the font and it ended up getting all messed up and now when i go into a server in the top right of the screen where it usually shows the names of people who got a kill, a little picture of the gun they used, and the names of people who were killed...it only shows the little icon of the gun so i dont see any names next to them at all..

    Delete the .res file(s) you edited and launch CSS again.

    Pros: great tutorial, very useful to me when making a completely new GUI for my clan
    Cons: /
    Notes: also it is well put together, from the html for good separation of sections, to the screenshots right there instead of having to open a new window..

    favorited!

    Detail: It is detailed to parts where you can read it simply and follow it's rules, there is no tough "jargon" involved and this makes it an ideal choice for people who are interested for this.
    Usefulness: Certainly useful for people who want to make GUI's for people on this site. So lovely, you serve as a model for others.
    Readability: Very easy, which is exactly what a tutorial is designed for, you have made a great tutorial that will help the majority of "newbs" on this site, if I may be allowed to put it that way.

    You'll need a blank font file which you can find around places. You can use the method in the tut with just using the blank font.
