[title]How to create a custom Background & Music in LEFT 4 DEAD[/title]
[u]You need:[/u] Rad Video Tools Click HereCUSTOM MENU MUSIC
Go to "Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\sound\UI" and rename the file "gamestartup1" to "defaultgamestartup1" (Backup). You never know if you want to use the default music again.
Copy your Song or Audiofile you want to use as Menumusic and paste it into the Folder "Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\sound\UI" and rename it to "gamestartup1".
Make sure the Audiofile is .mp3 and not to big or small. Look at the Default.
CUSTOM MENU BACKGROUND
Go to "Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\media" and rename the file "l4d_lighthouse_bg01" to "defaultl4d_lighthouse_bg01" (Backup).
Open Rad Video Tools, highlight the Image or Video you want to use and click on "Bink It!"
Now a bigger window will open. You don't need to do anything here. Just click on "Bink" on the right side.
A small window showing the progress will now open. When it's done just click on "Done" and your .bik file will be saved where the original Image is.
Again locate to "Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\media" and copy your just converted .bik file into the folder and rename it to "l4d_lighthouse_bg01".
[b]Finished.[/b] Start your Left 4 Dead and see what you've done!
- Make sure the Picture is in the same resolution as your game.
- Try to keep the "action" in a image on the right side so it won't let your buttons vanish in the picture.
Have fun and thanks for reading.
Aha... now here is an off-topic question: Which are the files that make the video background run??? Which files makes the video on the menu background work??? Does anybody in this big, wide world knows???
