    can someone tell me how to convert an existing .gif into a CSS spray?

    First you will need to download VTFEdit.

    For animated sprays, you're going to have to take apart your .gif, and save every frame as a separate image.

    Then uh. I forget. :/ Add me on Steam or hopefully someone else will be able to get the rest. I have to go refresh my memory.

    Okay, any specific size for the frames?

    I usually do 128x128 but I'm pretty sure anything to the power of 2 will work. The biggest is 512x512 though.

    Does it need 2^x size? Because when i scale it it looks crappy :mellow:

    Yes, the entire engine is based on the power of 2, so all textures, pictures, sprays are made on a 32x32, 64x64, 128x128, 512x512 texture scale.

    If you want, send me the picture and I'll see what I can do.

    Edit: The sexy man below me has a better way. ^^
