Darth, download this attachment and it will make it easy for you. Just unzip it into it's own folder and run Wally.exe.

Basically do this:

1. Save your picture as a .bmp. The dimensions of the spray must be divisible by 16 (ie. the height and width) and heigth x width must be no greater than 10752 (112 x 96 or vice versa is the largest). Wally will tell you if you need to resize it when you try to make the wad file.

2. Within Wally, click Wizard, HL Color Decal

3. In the top box select your TFC folder, default C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\SteamApps\yourname\team fortress classic\tfc.

4. Next to File on Hard Drive, browse to your bmp.

5. Click OK. It will open another window. Just close it all and if it asks you to save changes or something just click yes.

6. This will create pldecal.wad in your tfc folder. Rename this file to be tempdecal.wad. Right click on the file, click Properties, and check Read Only. If you don't, Steam will overwrite it with one of their crappy sprays.

It's pretty simple. I'm no spray expert I just find a pic I like or whatever, resize it in paint and run it through Wally. It's pretty simple. If you are going to draw your own pic in paint or whatever, it's probably easier to set your "cavas" to the dimensions needed before drawing.

Did you try my step by steps. Should work handy dandy. If you want, post what you want as a spray here and I'll make it for you.

Here you go. Your problem was probably because it was a jpeg. The attached spray may have lost some of it's luster since I converted this jpeg to bmp. If you have the original in bmp, you should be able to use Wally no problem.

Otherwise, unzip the attached file into your tfc folder mentioned above. Then make the .wad Read-Only before you start up Steam.

Oh yeah. I'm in no way an artist so I didn't touch it. :lol:

You can make a monochrome spray, without any extra tools at all. Just make a 64X64 black&white bmp (24bit), and put it in your "team fortress classic / tfc / logos" folder. And then it will even show up in the HL menu where you select your spray.

Note : Black will be transparent, white will be the colour you select. And everything in between will be shades of that colour.

If you are still havin trouble

remember , it may take a few times of spraying it before it shows up.. it has to download to the server you are on before you will be-able to see it..
