FILE REQUIREMENTS of reliable Color Logos :

The ".BMP" file must be of the following type of ".BMP" file before you convert it to a color spray paint logo tempdecal.wad file with the Wally's "HL Decal Wizard" to work reliably.

  • The finished logo file 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 named tempdecal.wad .

  • It must be a ".BMP" file in "INDEXED COLOR" mode (Photo Shop).

  • It must be an "8 BIT" ("255") colors ".BMP" file.

  • The LAST color in its "color table" (color palette) must be PURE BLUE (red=0, green=0, blue=255).

  • Its pixel WIDTH times HEIGHT, must NOT be more then 10,752 or WALLY will not convert it.
    Picture's Width (in pixels) X Height (in pixels) =< 10,752 .

  • The .BMP files width and height, must be a multiple of 16:
    16, 32, 48, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128, 144, 160, 176, 192, 208, 224,*.....
    (see valid width x height size chart below.)

  • Any part of your BMP file that is colored PURE BLUE, will be transparent when sprayed in a game.

  • If you want to use a color really close to pure blue, but do NOT want to have it transparent, then set that color to red=0, green=0 blue=250 (almost pure blue).

  • WALLY will also convert other types of files to wad files, but by using "indexed colored" , 8 bit, ".bmp" files with the last color in its palette set to pure blue, you are guaranteed to have a good working color logo after its converted every single time. Higher color bit pictures give better looking pictures, but don't always work, so for the purpose of this tutorial we tell you to use 8 bit pictures. You can experiment and tweak later on your own time.

(Note: See "Advanced Tips" for exceptions.)

Once the ".BMP" is converted into the finished ".WAD" file, the color spray paint logo tempdecal.wad file can NOT be larger then 15kb in size or it will NOT load on to the game servers.
