Hello community!

I hope you're doing good. I have a question that I can not find the solution to... and maybe you can help me out, or maybe there is already a tutorial about that I have missed?

I'm trying to make transparent (see trough) .tga file for Half-Life mod's UI, you know the files located under "resource" folder called "game_menu.tga" and "game_menu_mouseover.tga" those are used for showing your mod's logo, and the same logo when you mouse over it.

The question is how to achieve the same effect with the files...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Uuuh, you just gotta edit it with any program that can create transparent programs (Even MS Powerpoint works =O) and then convert it to TGA.

paint.net can open tga files. :) I think GIMP can too. If you wanna use a another program for editing the files, use paint.net to open the tga, then copy it and paste it into your other program. When you have finished editing it, copy and paste it back into paint.net and save.
