    There are tons already done, so not much point of Valve making any, even an animated one of Dustbowl (which isn't hard at all to make your own).

    still it wud be good if valve did it as some people want there to be alot of them to show up rather than 1 showing up like they did red or blue

    Red vs Blu is a good idea, and classes might work, but animated seems pointless to me.

    Source games use the scripts\ChapterBackgrounds.txt file to load background maps. However, this doesn't work in TF2. No matter what you do to it, the game will only load static VTF backgrounds. The only way to load background maps in TF2 is the map_background console command.

    TF2 originally had a dustbowl background but this was dropped either in the beta or shortly afterwards because it made some peoples PC's explode.

    I'm all for more static painted backgrounds though.. only if they dont overwrite existing ones

    They need to make a background for each class.

    You can get it from FPSB, or simply play the Xbox version. It loads on default.

    ok but has anyone asked valve to add these but i have another idea, it scans your pc (or looks at your potions menu to decide) and only uses menu backgrounds that your pc can cope with (or you decide)

    btw the guy that voted they'll ask valve what did valve say
