This is a skinning tut, because you need to change .vtf files. 1. Get GCFscape here and install it. 4. Go to: `SteamApps\common\Counter-Strike Source\cstrike` and open `cstrike_pak_dir.vpk` with GCFScape 5. Select the files you need and extract them to a new mod's location: steamapps/common/counter-strike source/cstrike/custom/my_skin_mod/materials/VGUI/gfx/vgui (if those folders don't exist, make them) 7. Now get the VTF plugin here for Photoshop, here for Paint.Net, and here for GIMP. And install it. 8. Now open photoshop or whatever, then go to: `file>open` steamapps/common/counter-strike source/cstrike/custom/my_skin_mod/materials/VGUI/gfx/vgui and select the buy-menu picture you want to edit. 9. Edit the picture. 10. Go to: `file>save as` or `file>export as` 1. enter the SAME name and save as .vtf, hold the standard options. NOTE. You need to use the same sizes of the standard .vtf files.

    ---------------------------- ""5. Select all files and extract them somewhere you will remember (my docs or something)."" ---------------------------- ok, when i get to this step, i open up my VGUI file, it says to copy and store all the files inside somewhere.... but when i open it up, the file is empty... what does that mean?? oh, 1 more thing... ---------------------------- ""7. Now get the VTF plugin here And install it."" ---------------------------- that link doesn't work anymore! so i would appreciate a new link for that =) -TY!
