I make backgrounds

I’m on it.


OK here it is http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=91232

OP, it’s not so hard to make a background; almost anybody can do it easily. I don’t see why this is such a huge milestone for you. All you really have to do is convert an image to a .VTF file and do some .VMT file editing.

Read this as criticism, and not as an insult.

As a matter of fact, I just extracted the background files and edited them and made a backup of the old ones :haw:

You guys are assholes.

What I do is take the picture into paint.net(with vtf plugin). Then re-size the image to 1024x1024, and save it in garrysmod/materials/console/background01

good to know

  1. It’s always best to make them 2048x2048 so they don’t look as stretched and shit
  2. Use VTFedit

wow that’s really hard to do you must be proud of yourself

lol vtf edit is hard. paint.net is easier to understand.

Joke of the week.

>save as .vtf

Am I missing something here?


I mean I learned how to use paint.net to the point where i couldn’t figure out vtf edit.

I use both with success.

Your point?

i can’t get it to work anyway

You mean you installed it wrong?

You know, I wonder if you can have maps as backgrounds in GMod.

You could add “map_background [mapname]” to the autoexec.cfg, but it would load Gmod THEN the map.

no it doesn’t work my computer hates it(my computer does not have a mind of it’s own)

That’s not a very good condition to have if you’re offering a mediocre public service.
