I’m sorry about this. I know I’m constantly asking for help with something (and being slow to reply, due to a combination of work and the website slowing down my computer some strange reason)but I have tried for the last three days to find a solution to this problem and failed. It’s a problem involving either VTFedit, GIMP, or possibly both. What I’ve been trying to do is make an overlay with a transparent background. I started by making a circle in GIMP, and then turning that circle into a path. After that, wrote my text and used “text to path” to curve it. I “fuzzy selected” the lettering, moved it to the area I wanted it in, filled it in with a color from the TF2 palette, and deleted the original path to text. Afterwards, I found an image of a flame on the internet, pasted it beneath the text, and wrote my italicized text beneath it. Once that had been done, I exported it to VTFedit twice, once as a PNG the other as a TGA. This is what it looked like in VTFedit. Since transparent backgrounds usually appear as black here, I didn’t really mind. However, the finished spray in Hammer retains this black background rather than appear transparent. I’ve spent three days trying to fix it myself and looking for answers across the internet. So far, none of them have worked. The worst part is, I’ve successfully put overlays with transparent backgrounds into Hammer before, and they worked. Granted, these overlays did not feature text that had been put on “text to path.” In fact, now that I’m writing this, I’ve realized those ones never even had paths; that is the only difference I can think of. Basically, I have no idea what I am doing wrong.
