Edit menu/video/tc_english.tga. Note that all the information is contained in the alpha channel, so a program like PS is recommended. The rgb channels don't actually need to contain anything but just white. Needless to say, be sure to save it in 32 bit format once you are done with the editing.

If the edited image is included in your mod pk3 under the correct path, it will replace the original when the SW logo / text crawl is triggered.

I believe PS in that post refers to Photoshop.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Pretty much yeah. In also 80% sure The GIMP can do that as well.

Although Photoshop is your best bet for most things graphics-related.

GIMP just doesn't cut it with a lot of stuff.

okay i still didn't get all that alpha channel stuff so i used Photoshop to edit "tc_english." It looked like i only drew on the words, so i'm guessing the other stuff is important, right?
