    Posted by hellmoss Great work man! If you can make a tutorial for 1.6, you'll be more than awesome!

    I'm sorry, I have no experience at doing video tutorials and I'm currently short of time. The basic steps in Gimp were: (1) Upscale the original 800x600 image to 1440x1080, using a sharp resizer (2) Upscale the left portion of the image in horizontal dimension, to make the image 16:9. This, of course, creates unpleasant knees in those yellow curves that go across the image. I had to erase and recreate them. I also had to re-touch other areas where stretched and original content meet. So it was a lot of manual work. (3) Sharpen the whole image with warp-sharp to hide the upscaling unsharpness in areas that must appear sharp. (4) Manually smooth out unpleasant sharpening artifacts in some areas.

    Posted by G.o.d.W.a.n.4.(TM) this is amazing :D can u make one of cscz?

    I'll be looking into that. However, it's going to be more difficult, because in the original CS:CZ background, there is no portion to the side of the image that can be arbitrarily stretched (blame that CT's shotgun to the left).

    Notes:

    • Ah yea, thank you. I noticed that. No problem. Corrected and it's working fine now. But you should re-upload this background with the fixed text file.

    You may notice the default background showing up for a split-second during startup. This is because of a wrong file name (my fault). To fix it, rename "BackgroundLayoutLoading.txt" to "BackgroundLoadingLayout.txt" (in cstrike/resource folder). This should immediately show the new background on startup. Again, apologies for this mistake.
