Hi,

Well i guess some of the people here want to know how to have your Custom Spray Paint Right? Well Let's Begin:

1.- Making the WAD File:

Download Half-Life logo creator 1.0 http://www.edgefiles.com/files/5761.html

Install it and Run it, Since it's the first time you run it it will ask for the directory of Half-Life.

After selecting hl.exe from your Half-life directory the main window may appear, click open.

Choose your image:

[img]http://img22.exs.cx/img22/5690/chooseimage.jpg

NOTE: To Make it easy choose a picture with 24 bits quality beacuse the program will reduce it to 256, so if you select a 256 image then it will reduce it more, but u can set the program to not reduce it. For Further information check the manual.

You Can pick Autosize to make a standard size of your image or you can resize manually.

ALSO! Make sure your image does not exceed 12288 Pixels.

From:


To:


After you can edit with the tools from the right toolbar or just make the wad.

Also you can add transparency.



Then, Choose Save it To: and choose the ESF directory, and name the file tempdecal. (Or you can save it to the folder you want and just Copy & Paste)



After you selected the directory and named the file tempdecal, then just click the Make WAD button.

.

You just finished making the WAD now to put in in game.

2.-Put it in the Game.

After making the WAD, enter ESF, and create your on server (or join one),open console and type bind < key > "impulse 201" (Yes with Quotes).



And press the bound key on the game next to the floor.



Click the image above so see the real size.

NOTE: Make your tempdecal.wad READ-ONLY so it doesn't get's overwrited when entering options

I hope this helps someone.

Have Fun Making your Custom Spray.

This would actually make a nice addition to the Misc. Tutorials thread. Perhaps this information could be moved to that sticky.
