Create your own custom buy image

A Tutorial for Counter-Strike: Source

size, and alpha channels. 2 most important parts in development of this type of image.

my first ever tutorial, using HLMV, VTF Editor, and Photoshop CS4. please understand I did not do this to show you EXACTLY how to make YOUR version work perfectly, each person has a different way their computer and directories are set up. I made this to essentially show you the importance of 2 things: the size of your custom image (512x256) and the specifics about alpha channels. if you can get those 2 down, you can figure out the rest yourself, or have someone help you find where you need to save these custom files. download that custom FN SCAR here. I do not take credit for anything to do with that custom model, I only used it to create a custom buy menu image for it. Hope this helps you guys out
