Hmm.. that's why I asked, because I have been warned about posting stuff I did with modified Counterstrike XBox files before... Ho Hum.. they don't know what they are missing.

BTW - As an aside.. I just copied my Gunman Chronicles folder over to Steam and it seems to work... Do you think I am going to encounter any problems as I go?

Cheers for now

I certainly did You made a nice job of it and everything seems to being working well (not had time to go through it all though). I even put the Hi Def pack into it.. looks very nice indeed.

I am just in the process of making a new splash screen for it in the style of the HL one. I haven't found quite the right one, but this will do for the minute!

If anyone wants those files, just let me know.

So.. about Gunman?

Cheers for now

Nice job!

Look, if you can send me the same picture without the menu text, I turn it into a genuine Steam splash screen and I add it to the patch

Well, I can't really take the credit for it, apart from searching the internet for around 5 hours looking for the right image. I knew there was some art around just like the standard HL splash screen with Gordon on it and the lambda logo.

I happened across this one and merely resized it etc. It's not quite the image I am looking for as the logo and Barney are too big. I'd sooner have more of his body in like in this box art...

It would be nice to have the OpFor one too...

I've cobbled together one for Gunman too, but I'm really not happy with that as I need to change the font to a darker one.

I'm trying to mix and match the "G" logo on this image...

http://www.mobygames.com/images/cove...0457409-01.jpg

...with the geezer on this image...

The annoying thing is that Valve or Gearbox will have these wallpapers sitting around somewhere, but never released them.

Anyway.. here's the 800x600 version of that pic..

If you want the bmp, MSN me - talismanisland@hotmail.com

BTW - tga files to follow.... when I'm happy with them.

I'm adding a hl.dll file which has Dr. Rosenberg and the BS armor implemented...

(sorry for no source code, but this is very old and the code is nowhere to find )

A bit happier with this tga for the logo, but still trying to find a transparent one...

Enclosed background too....

You should change the text color to black, or something darker IMO

The menu text looks okay to me in game.

I've been messing about with the Uplink Demo today. Got that functioning under it's own Steam install. Not too difficult actually as it seems to work with the latest HL dll files.

Never actually played it before so it was a nice change

Sorry about the bumpage for an old thread, but I thought I'd share this.

Just found an image to go with my original Gunman Chronicles background for Steam.



Only spent a couple of minutes on this, so I think it could actually look nicer given a bit of care (and work by someone who is proficient at artwork and Photoshop!)

It's a cross between the US boxart and the UK artwork for the game... seems to go quite well apart from the fact the the text is a bit light for it on the left hand side.

If anyone wants to make a more "professional" attempt I can supply the files I have used.

Cheers for now
