Following Reag's tutorial at fpsbanana ( http://www.fpsbanana.com/tuts/9038 ), I decided to make a Youtube video showing how to make a distance fading spray for games using the source engine (like Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, Left 4 Dead, Left 4 Dead 2, Age of Chivalry, Neotokyo, etc. ).
----Nvidia Photoshop Plugin ( http://developer.nvidia.com/object/ph... )
----DirectxSDK ( http://www.microsoft.com/DOWNLOADS/de... needs Genuine Microsoft Windows)
If you have problems with Genuine Windows, just download DirectX Texture Tools here: http://www.mediafire.com/?w3ztzmjqjyn , it might work (I took it from tf2in.ru), but mipmaps are not visible ...
----VTFedit ( http://halflife2.filefront.com/file/V... )
----Quick & Dirty Bloodlines Tools v3.9a (.rar file: http://turvy.dommel.be/vampire/VPKToo... )
----An idea for a spray (www.hit-your-head-against-a-wall.com)
Then just follow reag's tutorial: http://www.fpsbanana.com/tuts/9038

My Spy fading/disguising spray (UPDATED 21/09/12) :
Paste it into the following folder:
steam\steamapps\STEAMACCOUNT\team fortress 2\tf\materials\vgui\logos

Don't forget to suscribe!!
NB: if you cannot use photoshop or its plugin, then simply use Gimp
and its plugin: http://gimp-dds.googlecode.com/files/...
I don't use GIMP, so I don't know how to use it, sorry. Google it a bit, you should find out the solution ;)
UPDATE: It seems you must save the VTF file as a VMT before putting it in the logos folder, or the spray will not show up:
" I could not get the spray to show up without making a VMT file with VTF Edit and putting it in the logos folder " (said by WolfDemonProductions)
" Open VTF file in VTFedit and go to Options and make sure Auto Create VMT File is checked, if it is not, check it. Finally go to File - Save as and navigate to your steamapps\username\team fortress 2\tf\materials\VGUI\logos folder " (FPS Banana)"
