hey is there anywhere where i can find different backgrounds for the console in game because its really difficult to see the color black in the console. I downloaded one which was sapose to make it easyer to see black but it only helped a tiny bit i was hopeing for a brighter background.
can you help?
Make your own. Assets1>gfx>interface.
How do you get rid of that animiation a image called stars in the pk3 file makes even when you get rid rid of the image in the pk3 files you still see it in the console and i don't want any animation just the picture
Make it all an alpha channel, as in all black.
An Alpha channel is not just a pure black. You have to make it a Alpha channel, the black is just to help skinners do know where the skin is.
Edit: Pwned By Kouen! I knew I had it all wrong some how.

You're missing the point.
The image for the console has already been configured as an alpha channel, therefore to make the stars effect invisible when making an overwrite, you'd just have to make the image overwrite completely black - because the shader already exists, so the alpha channel is essentially an automated effect.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
Got a completly black background and a big white line going round the border of the console when i tried that
To be honest i don't get what you guys are saying lol so why don't you run me through it step by step.
1. Ive opened the pk3 file named assets1.pk3 using paksacpe 2. Ive went to gfx then interface in the pk3 file 3. I see 2 images in the pk3 file called console_jediacademy.jpg and stars.jpg 4. Ive found the image i want my background to be. 5. Ive resized my image to 1024x1024 and renamed it to console_jediacademy 6. Ive replaced the original image with the one i found.
now exsactly what do i do?
Make a new PK3 files. Dont overwrite Asstes!!!! Thats the worst you could do. Once you make a new PK3, save it as ''Yourmodthing'' or somwthing and put it in base and it should work.
That, and your size is wrong. The console_jediacademy is 1024x512 and the stars is 256x256.
