    Ok, I seen someone ask this a little bit earlier, so I tried it myself, and it worked.
    Ok first of all, you need these tools needed to mod. I can't post an outside link, so PM me if you need them.
    It comes with all the tools needed to edit.



    Now that you got those, find the image that you want for your backround.

    Now you need to make sure that it is sized to 1280x700.

    Once it is resized, find your menu_mp_image file inside IW_03, and extract it to your desktop.


    Now you need to convert your iwi file to dds format with iwixdds


    Good. Now you can open it in Photoshop, but make sure you installed the plugin included in the ********** file.



    When your done, and it looks as gay as mine does, look on the channels tab.

    Make sure it is a D3D/DDS Document

    Since it has an Alpha channel, save it as ***5 ARGB 8bpp Interpolated Aplha

    If it doesn't have an Alpha channel, save it as ***1 RGB 4bpp No Alpha


    Now that your done with all the editing, now you need to convert it back to iwi format with dds2iwi bt dragging the file into the app.


    Now you need to open a few things to make it work without Hex Editing the file. Copy the directory where the old file is located, and paste it into the
    Original file on the IWIFixer


    Now do the same thing for the new Files. Then click start


    Ok, almost done now. Now repeat the last step, using the CRC Fixer


    When you are done, click execute.

    Now all of your file is fixed, and ready to be put back into your IW_03 file.


    Now it will show up on your screen


    Good job, you now have a gay custom background like mine
    You can also edit the menu_mp_backround file and do the same thing.
    Thank me if I helped.


    EDIT: Fail!!!! Wrong section lmao! Plz Move Ty

    Move me!

    It should be noted that doing this only works on alteriwnet. Doing it in the regular game will give you a Files Different from server error.

    Wouldnt take more than a verify to fix it. But the only thing stopping people from using custom background layers in the real version of the game is that no dds to iwi converter supports ARGB. I cant imagine it being too hard to update one, and if I had the knowledge to do it you should believe I would.

    Thx,
    Because you do not have the DDS plugin. All the tools you need are in a sticky at the top of teh page, clearly marked: "Tools needed for modding"

    I'm a Buddhist, Christian, Paramedic, Vegan, Straight Edge Pimp
    But most of all, I am the flyest one you will ever meet.

    Thx,
    Because the tools needed are already stickied in the Texture Modding section for 1, and the file is way too big for a virus scan, and I don't have the time or patience to upload them, and post VS. As for your error, get the photoshop plugin from the sticky

    I can also edit the cloud file, and the backround file to make it an animated screen with your suggestion lol

    There is no need to sticky every single tutorial about something. There is already a good deal as it is, and this doesnt even work for steam.

    It's the problem of image hosting, I guess. Few days ago I couldn't see the pics, but yesterday they appeared. Can't see them now, though...
    By the way, I was inspired by this tutorial and created the similar one for Black Ops. Thanks <3
