#118 GUIDE: Weapon-specific Custom Crosshairs in Customization
insomniaripBenNZLI made some current weapon icons from the ones used in the backpack. They can be extracted from tf2_textures_dir.vpk/materials/backpack/weapon/c_models and don't need any editing.

I really liked this idea and I didn't see a download link so I've completed this if anybody is interested.


The only downside is that multiple unlocks share the same tf_weapon_....ctx file as seen here so I could only use one image for those.
Sorry for posting in such an old thread, but does anyone have these? DL link is broken

in the future, follow what he said: extract the icons from tf2_textures_dir.vpk within the specified folder via GCFScape, use vtfedit if necessary & create a .vmt for each of the icons.

#223 The Mouse/Mousepad Thread v2 in Hardware

my friend sent me a medium softness artisan ninja fx shidenkai mousepad and it's very comfortable. it sucks to know that it'll deteriorate quickly, but its glide is unparalleled to anything i've used in the past. would highly recommend trying it if you get your hands on it for cheap.

#30 Best hackusations from any place in TF2 General Discussion

even knowing nothing about realm royale, and despite kephrii's history of flaky overwatch hackusations, this is one of the best presented hackusations i've ever seen:

doesn't come as much of a surprise that he can present things so eloquently considering his background in military intelligence

#9 1st person tracers for pistol but not for scatter? in Customization

apologies, those weapon scripts made their way around because of my initial revisions when publishing the weapon-specific crosshair guide & my apathy when it came to genericizing the files.

you need to be careful of how you replace the "tracereffect" so you don't get visual artifacting (e.g. the scattergun tracer isn't compatible with the pistol). since tracers aren't indicative of where someone's precisely aiming, i found it useful to null them out for most hitscan weapons to not become falsely confident. note that it doesn't seem possible to naively null the tracer effects of miniguns (& i believe at least one other type of weapon but it has been too long since i looked into it).

since it's useful to do so with new tf2 updates (namely when any new items are released), you should get GCFScape (, open up tf2_misc_dir.vpk in your \tf folder and, within said vpk, extract the weapon scripts from the \scripts folder. use bacardi's tool to convert the ctx files into txt ( make all your modifications to the scripts via the converted txt files & then save said txt files in your custom hud's \scripts folder; you do not need to convert the txt files back to ctx for them to be recognized by tf2.

if you're not intending on using the scripts to change visual behavior of the weapons or use custom crosshairs, you can delete said scripts from your custom hud's folder & your weapons' behaviors will default to the game's scripts in the aforementioned tf2_misc_dir archive.
