Spray Paint Logo
Downloading and Installation Instructions:
color spray logos have been tested to work OK in "Half-life"
and Half-life Mods (with the new "Steam" update), like TFC,
Counter-Strike, DoD. They "should" work in other lesser
Half-life Mods as well too.
Download a spray paint logo by just double left clicking
on one of the color spray paint logos on of the
download pages over at our Logos
WareHouse and then save
the downloaded ".ZIP" file to a folder
on your computer somewhere. (Note: see our
Contact page for file use policies).
Then double click that ".ZIP" file to "unpack"
(extract) the Logo somewhere on your computer. The logo is the
pldecal.wad file. To
un-zip files you have to have a "un-zipper" software
program like WinZip
(it's a free download) to un-zip it.
file is in the zipped file only for your convenience to
view the logo outside the game and see what it looks
like if you don't have a ".WAD"
viewer software program like Wally (it's a free download).
NEW STEP BECAUSE OF "STEAM":
Because of changes brought on by "Steam" to the
Half-life gaming engine (and ALL the other Half-life
Mod's), you will now have to --RE-NAME-- the
un-zipped downloaded logo's file name from
pldecal.wad file to
Now move the
tempdecal.wad file to each
of your "Half-life Mod's"
folders that you want to use it in.
Here are the default paths to the various
popular Half-life Mod's folders where the
file should be copied to:
(NOTE: Replace the "yourEmail@yourISP.com"
with your email address you used when you
registered at Steam.)
(You only have to add the tempdecal.wad
file to Mods you want to use the spray
Day of Defeat
TFC (Team Fortress
DO -NOT- go back into that Mod's
"Options-Multiplayer" Game Menu after you install the new color logo's
file or YOUR COLOR LOGO
WILL BE ERASED from that Mod. You would have to
if it gets erased.
Now go into a game and spray the new logo
!!! ;-) You might have to spray a new logo 2 or 3 times
and wait a few minutes before the default Half-life
"lambda" sign spray paint logo switches over to your new spray paint
Spray Paint Logo Tips:
You can have different logos
in different Mods.
If you later decide you want to use another spray logo in a
Mod, you will have to replace that Mod's
tempdecal.wad file with your
new logo's tempdecal.wad file.
You can only have one file at a time in each folder named
tempdecal.wad , so a trick is
to just just re-name the un-used files by adding a number to
their names like: tempdecal1.wad
, tempdecal2.wad ,
tempdecal3.wad , etc, etc.
If you should ever want
to get rid of your color logo spray and go back to the
default logos, simply go into that Mod's "Options-Multiplayer"
menu and select a default logo and click OK and your
custom logo will be deleted. You might
want to make a copy of the
and save it for later just in
case you do that though.
DO -NOT- USE the included ".GIF"
FILES as SPRAY LOGOs, they will NOT work as "sprays" in Half-life
or any of its Mods. You have to download and un-zip the
version and re-name them
and use them instead. The ".GIF" files
are simply included to be an easy way to show
you what each color logo looks like. You can
view a ".WAD" file, if you open it with a free
"Wad" file "Viewer"
