This procedure, if followed properly,
will fix about 99.9% of all Half-life
color spray paint logo problems.
Ok, to solve
your "non-working color spray paint logo
problems", we need YOU to start "isolating"
possible causes. We are assuming you are using Half-life
Counter-Strike. Btw, color logos must be installed for EACH
individual Half-life mod to see them in that mod when
THIS ENTIRE "Color Logo Troubleshooting Guide"
at least once before trying anything.
Btw, if someone CRYs to us:
my color logo don't work,,,,Whaaaa"
we will NOT help them, follow this guide first,
should test to make sure YOU have your
"Half-life Counter-Strike" game (or other
mod) properly installed and UPDATED to the
latest version on your computer. Test
to make sure YOU can JOIN and PLAY
"CS" properly on a known working
server. You can test your Counter-Strike by
playing on the really good low pinging and friendly
[TiC] Clan's Half-life Counter-Strike
"TALK is CHEAP"
ip number =

(Note: this server has the spray allow rate set to
unlimited spraying, so you can spray all you want.)
the ENTIRE "How to INSTALL COLOR
Halflife Spray Paint Logos" page at least (2)
download page of the
AtomicWARRIOR Color Logo Section:
Then double left
click on and
download the #2 color spray
paint logo ("[TiC]Clan I want you" logo)
on that page (we KNOW this [TiC]
color spray logo ALWAYS works).
the zipped pldecal.wad file.
If you don't have an "un-zipper' software program get
WinZip (it's free).
pldecal.wad file to tempdecal.wad
Half-life color spray paint logo files
used to be named
pldecal.wad , but now
because of changes that the "Steam" update made to
Half-life and it's Mods, the file must be re-named
Put a copy of your BRAND NEW CUSTOM
color spray paint logo
tempdecal.wad file into each
directory of each Half-Life Mod's folder that you
want to spray it in.
|Here are the
default paths to the various popular Half-life Mod's
folders where the
should be copied to if you want to use them in those
(You only have to add the
file to Mods you want to
use the spray in).

Now TEST SPRAY
that logo on this SPECIAL Counter-Strike server ran
by [TiC] Clan that always works and also allows
'"unlimited logo spraying" (but no porn ;-):
"[TiC]Clan TALK is CHEAP CS Server"
Once you get on that [TiC]
Clan Server, WAIT at least (6) MINUTES before
you start spraying (allow time for the logo to upload to
the server and re-download back to your friend's
computer), then SPRAY your logo (6) times (you
should hear the "spray sound"). Your
test color logo SHOULD have sprayed now, did you see
it?? If you have friends on the server, did they see
Now, -IF- you did ---NOT---
get the #2 [TiC]
LOGO spray to work on that
server after all that, THEN THAT MEANS YOU
have a problem with YOUR computer's settings. You
you know you have: your CS working properly, you downloaded and installed the #2 [TiC]
color Logo properly, you got on
a [TiC] game server that we KNOW already
ALWAYS works with the #2 spray color logo, and
you WAITED (6) minutes for the logo
to UPLOAD to the server and you tested sprayed (6)
possible that you might have "LOGO
SPRAYING TURNED OFF" on you computer,
to make sure that this is not the case,
get into a CS game and hit the "`"
keyboard key and pull down the CONSOLE,
then type these commands into the HALF-LIFE
A. Type in:
B. Hit your ENTER key.
C. Type in:
D. Hit your ENTER key.
E. Type in:
F. Hit your keyboard's ENTER key.
G. Now get on that [TiC] CS server again and wait
(6) minutes after you connect to it, then test spray (6) times
again, it should spray now.
NOTE: the reason it takes a (6) minute WAIT after you
connect to the server,
it sometimes takes a while for the color
logo to be "UPLOADED" to the
server from your computer behind the scenes. Behind the
scenes Half-life will also "download" your logo from the
server to your friend's computer. This is what you are
If you do all these steps EXACTLY and
STILL you can not get the #2 [TiC] Color
Logo to spray on a [TiC] server, go to the
post your message saying you have TRIED
and could not get the #2 [TiC] test Color
logo to spray on a [TiC] CS server and that you follow
the complete "Color Logo Troubleshooting Guide". In the
message, post your game name, email
address, a detailed descriptions of what
you did and in what order and what
happened, or did not happen.
-If- you DID get the [TiC] #2 color spray
to work on a [TiC] Clan CS server, NOW
try installing YOUR CUSTOM color logo (your
tempdecal.wad file) in your cstrike folder, this replaces
the [TiC] logo
tempdecal.wad file in that mod with your logo.
See if your logos will spray now on that [TiC] CS
server, if your CUSTOM spray paint color
logo does NOT spray (after the proper installation of it and
the (6) minute wait and (6) test spray attempts), then
that means YOUR CUSTOM LOGO is bad. Go back and re-read
"The COLOR Spray Paint Logo
Bible" again (the tutorials on how to make a
color logo). Read the ENTIRE "The COLOR Spray
Paint Logo Bible" (2) more times, just read it
don't whine ;-),
substitute YOUR custom picture for our
example picture of "deadBill". If you don't know what we are
talking about when we say "deadBill",
then READ the ENTIRE "The COLOR Spray Paint Logo
Bible" tutorial about how to create a color
spray paint logo
and PAY ATTENTION this time ;-) !!
If your logo DID spray in STEP 8, then hey, its working,
go spray it and thank us on the
Logo Forum for helping you. ;-)
If you have any other questions, DO NOT EMAIL
us, please simply post on the
Logo Forum a detailed message with a
description of what you tried and what happened or did
not happen and ask for help there!!
We hope this
gets you going with spray paint color logos!
Good luck and happy gaming and happy spraying!! ;-)
