In this tutorial, I will show you how to creation your own textured BG using a stock BG.

Tools: MS paint or your basic paint program that comes with windows or OS. And sometihng to open .tga files. I will use PS3 for this tut.

I took the liberty to set up BG for you. It can be dowbloaded here.

??? is the MAP-ID in this tutorial.

Create your map. asuming you have your map ready and have your BG set up. Lets begin.

1) Open up your bg .tga texture in your editing program.


2) Copy and paste the BG into your basic paint program also.


3)Go on google or what ever search engine you use and type in landscapes and happy hunting for your sources.
As you can see I chose a mountain mini picture which I copied and pasted it into the ms basic paint.




4) Simply color out the sky. I used dark red to color it out. Doesn't have to be perfect, but has to be good enough.
Now Bucket paint out the red.


5) Copy and paste the mountain as must as needed across the blank bg square.
Don't worry about going over. Just highlight and delete the extra.




Now here we have the mountains laid across. As you an see I cut and posted a 2ndary mini bg. You can add as much as you want.


6)Copy and past the new BG back to your main editing program. You may have to select all.


Heres my bg pasted along with everything else lol. Just crop them out. Of course you will have to select the area with the lasso tool to highlight what you want crop in. Everything outside will be croped out.

Heres my BG cropped. She looks good for a tut lol.


8-) Hit Ctrl+L to bring out your level options and move the black course to the middle. Also the white one. We should now have this.



9) Invert the image so the sky is black and the mountain area is white.



Now copy the inverted image. And return the image back to its viewable image.
Paste the inverted image to your alpha layer.

Now with everything done. Just save it .tga format or if you used the templates provided, just save it.


Now go place it ingame and test it out lol.

Final NOTES: Make sure your image is using the power of 2. If not, you will get munge warnings and errors.
Just to be on safe side, make sure your image is 1024 x 256


Theres my bg ingame.

Completed BG Ingame
