I can upload the PSD/PDN file for this, once I get my laptop back. would a PSD/PDN file be suitable? Kizzycocoa 10:37, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

-- It would be great if you could do this - I'm working on a short Portal mod and it would be very helpful to me - otherwise I'll have to leave TestChamber signs out

Yh, I just need to get around to it, what with exams and stuff, I haven't had time to do this. That and the fact I forgot. Basically, go into the portal GCF and take out one of the sign textures, export it as a tga, edit and transfer to the right folder. SImple MLSTRM 11:33, 10 April 2010 (UTC)

Ok, that seems easy enough - I tried to find the sign textures but to no avail earlier - I shall try again. Thanks --Cred-Injuries 11:12, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

It's been changed to seperate tiles for each hazard now. sorry about this. And i can't find my original so we could just delete this page... MLSTRM 11:02, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

OMG! I totally forgot about this thread. I will upload the PSD of the test chamber (not hazard) signs ASAP! Kizzycocoa 09:39, 24 June 2010 (UTC)
someone please find a permanent place for this. mediafire is only temporary. Kizzycocoa 17:39, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
added to moddb. if it's authorised, it can be lined from the article as a permanent location for the signage Kizzycocoa 17:49, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
it was authorised. here's the link. Kizzycocoa 23:10, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

Article Updated

I majorly revamped the article using the tutorial included with the PSD. When the file is uploaded to moddb someone can change the link. Subject15837 21:46, 27 June 2010 (UTC)

can we have an update explaining what the text fonts/sizes are? we don't all use photoshop :P Kizzycocoa 22:40, 27 June 2010 (UTC)
The text fonts and sizes should be there already, it's a template... Subject15837 02:27, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
"Select the Progress Numbers 1 layer and the text tool to change the first set".
this action is photoshop-specific. :P Kizzycocoa 06:02, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, but anything that can read PSD files should be able to read the font there. Still, I guess I can specify the font, if you really want it. Subject15837 15:01, 28 June 2010 (UTC) (one of the leading freeware paint programs) cannot read it unfortunately :P Kizzycocoa 16:30, 28 June 2010 (UTC)
Actually I have a PSD plugin, that's the upside to a freeware program: plugins :D Even still, the font is now in the article. :D Subject15837 19:39, 1 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, thanks for doing this guys, i totally forgot and i just didn't have the time either. MLSTRM 18:30, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

This needs a change

I do have a personal easy way to create test chamber model signs. But it's admittedly quite dumb. I have a set of text I copy and paste. I paste the text in the smd file where "awe_total" and "awe_total_grey" start and end. I also have comments that tell me which will be greyed out or solid. It works surprisingly well but it's very unpractical.

I really wish we knew of an easier way to make test signs whether if that's by modeling, or writing a program to automatically create signs for us.
