Full quality sprays on low settings

A Tutorial for Team Fortress 2

So some of us might have the problem not being able to run TF2 on full settings, just as me. Me myself has set the texture quality to low for best performance. In this tutorial I will NOT explain how to make a spray, I assume that your spray is already a working .vtf and .vmt combination in your materials/VGUI/logos/ folder. Now to add the sexyness to the spray, how to get a spray to show in full quality in TF2 with the texture settings set to low. It's fairly simple, first get VTFEdit, preferably the latest one. Open the .vtf of the spray you'd like to have sexied up. Get over to the image tab and then to the flags compartment. To achieve our goal, we need to tick 1 (JUST ONE OMG!) flag extra, the "No Level of Detail" flag. Tick it and save. Enjoy your crisp spray! I assume this also applies to any other type of material as menu backgrounds, skins, the little photo's on map infos, etc.

    Posted by aerial Could use some HTML formatting, But apart from that it's a good tutorial with a nice outcome.
    it's not a large tut so its not really needed since its only needed to make huge walls of text readable(spelling?)

    Posted by sHiBaN No Level Of Detail? What about No Mipmap. That's way better lol.
    No Mipmap won't give this effect on low settings, also if you combine this with no Mipmap it will look weird when viewed from a distance, Mipmaps give a slight DOF effect, especially when viewed from an angle.
