    You shouldn't tell what resolution to get. Other than that nice tutorial. The resolution of the picture should be the player's resolution. They might have a 16:9 monitor, a 5:4 monitor or something else.

    Ok so I just got this new laptop, and i was trying to create a custom background for the loading menu when you first start the game, which I have done before on my home computer, but the background will not work with the video settings I play with (16:9 Aspect Ratio and the Resolution at 1366x768)..... the strange thing is if i change the aspect ratio to either 4:3 or 16:10 the background shows up. does anybody know what i have to do or edit for it to work with 16:9 Aspect Ratio and 1366x768 Resolution?? (I do have VTFEdit and GCFScape) Thank you in advance


    Hmm i think u should make a picture of 1366x768

    Pros: well easy to use and easy to read
    Cons: a few spelling fails
    Improvements: fix fails and make the link: < a href="link">here< /a>

    (whitout space between < a and < /a>

    Just some minor spelling corrections..

    "welcome by my first tutorial" should be "welcome to my first tutorial!"

    also, the url code isnt working, just remove the url code really,

    "typ" should be "type"

    "somethings" should be "something"

    the "too" should be "to"

    "appears" should be "appear"

    "els" should be "else"

    there shouldnt be any "it" in the second last sentance.

    i do know that english is not your first language, and i am only trying to help, but, appart from that, good tutorial mate.

    9.5/10
