Demo Videos

Hey there, If you need to reserve or want to work on demonstration videos, Please post on the weapon demos project here: https://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Team_Fortress_Wiki_talk:Weapon_Demonstration Ashes (talk) 15:51, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

I didn't know that page even existed, thanks! Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 15:54, 6 June 2018 (UTC)

Website Security

Thanks for the advice. I would have previewed it except that doing so would not have helped me in testing the website: I was checking to make sure that it is immune to an SQL Injection, it is. Cheers, Revetron (talk) 07:46, 4 July 2018 (UTC)

About recently added 3D models

Don't forget that all Festivized weapons come in team-colored lights. That means you have to do 2 models on each weapons. Just the reminder, as the one you added on Holy Mackerel is not on both team. 14:58, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Need help on Black Rose

Since the default style of the Black Rose is Mystery and True Love, I think you can help me fix the default style to use the Mystery and True Love one instead of Baccara, right? User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 23:33, 31 July 2018 (UTC)|}

Sure! I looked at the 3D views that it currently has, and I think I'll just redo them aswell, instead of just fixing the default view, as the edges are a little "fuzzy" and low-resolution on the current images. Can't do it right now because I'm not home, but I'll do it when I get home. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 07:34, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Help with Recently Added Medals

Hi there, I notice you've been taking infobox images for the newly added medals, which is great to see, but most of them are still missing class galleries, and some have class galleries that are hidden behind tabs; for things like different types of medals. Those pages could really use your help with the galleries, if you have the time. Most of them should be marked as needing images, so take a look around if you can. Thank you! -MarioMaster2008 (talk) 23:37, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

My current goal is to re-do the 3D-views for a few items that still use the old method (and aren't compatible with the new one), but after that is done, I could do it, no problem! Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 06:21, 24 August 2018 (UTC)

Moscow LAN Paint Rotations

Hey there, I had set rotation values for the three new paintable tournament medals, and was planning to work on them all over the coming days. While I'm more than fine with you doing painted variants for the Moscow LAN medals, especially because you've already done half of them, please don't forget to update the values on the Rotations page with your own, which you can get from regedit. Also, if you used a class other than Pyro, change the file paths to reflect that. Thank you! -MarioMaster2008 (talk) 23:14, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Of course, I'll add/update any of the values needed once I have all the medal pics done and uploaded. At the moment, 1st and 2nd place are done and uploaded, while 3rd, staff, and participant haven't been uploaded yet because I haven't had the time to do so. Thanks for letting me know!

TFMV Version

Hey, what is your TFMV version? Is it okay if I could ask you the link for it? I only have the Version 1.5, and all other versions are broken, I could not find a single person hosting a working version. If you want to share it privately, you can send it to me via Steam (feel free to add me). I'm helping a person with how to do images on HLMV, paint variant table, and so on, and it would be a great help if we can get our hands on TFMV, so we can use the Paint Chart Tool. Thank you. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 21:40, 23 October 2018 (UTC)

I don't know of any working TFMV versions either, the author deleted everything related to it and set his profile to private. I'm currently using a small Python script that I made myself, but it's not in a refined enough state where I'd feel comfortable releasing it just yet. I'll let you know when it's done, just needs some minor changes at this point. Sorry for any odd formatting, I'm on mobile. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 05:37, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
Oh, I see. Congrats on making the Python script, if there's anything I can say, is that it's working quite well, hehe. Take your time on making these changes. Cheers. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:43, 24 October 2018 (UTC)
All nice and comfy, except for the fact that I had a typo in the color value for Aged Moustache Grey, fixed it now but I have to manually redo all Aged Moustache Grey pics :>.

Any suggestions for the Shogun's Shoulder Guard paint images?

Hey there. There was something that bothered me all the way back in 2014, that the Shogun's Shoulder Guard previously only show the undershirt, without showing all the rest of the item. However, right now, it's very hard to see how the paint affects on the item. Do you have any ideas for this cosmetic? I thought of some pose that could take less space, but still show everything that the item has (a pose other than ref, I mean}}. Thoughts? I'll see what poses could fit.

It's not everytime that the Patch note should be the same

I don't really know what happened in the IRC discussion, as I didn't read it. But sometimes, the information that is not included in the item page prior to changes should be noted. (Like previous stats for Soda Popper that mini-crits instead of grants more jump or Pretty Boy's Pocket Pistol which granted no fall damage before changed to just granted +3 HP on hit) I don't mind if it's discussed but the comment you used on reverting is a bit aggressive. As many of the spots in the Update history are never followed the patch note. (Like period on every patch note, change from "... The <item name> ..." to use non-capital "the" for the example) User Hinaomi Hinaomi-sig.png Rikka Takanashi (talk) • (contributions) 22:55, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

We thought that since other items that were changed in the same patch (Treasure Hat and Hat of Undeniable Wealth and Respect) do not mention this in their Update History, it shouldn't be on Bounty Hat either. I agree that it might have looked quite agressive on my part, which was never my intention - sorry, if it did seem that way. Perhaps we should add the fact that they were tradeable before the update while gift wrapped, to pages of all the 3 hats?

Nice infobox pictures.

Hey, I just noticed you've made some infobox pictures from some of the new items. Just wanted to say that they look great. Sorry if I'm not too active lately, haven't been feeling very well to contribute. I thought of a few times to come back and do a few edits, but haven't been able to. There has been a discussion I created long ago on Team_Fortress_Wiki:Discussion, both being "Including "Action taunt" to each respective Class page." and "Team-Colored Styles section", when you have time, could you leave your thoughts on these? I'd appreciate it. Well, I hope you good luck in future contributions. Maybe I can give you another Wikiachievement on the future, who knows.

Need some help with Millennial Mercenary

Hello! I'm attempting to do painted variants for the Millennial Mercenary, however I cannot figure out how to have the headphones stay visible for the different styles. Would you perhaps know how? Gadddy (talk) 04:55, 5 January 2019 (UTC)

Search tf_misc_dir.vpk for dec18_millennial_mercenary*, and you'll see that the different styles are technically different items. If you mean the headphones or hat for the Scout's model, those are called submodels. Load up scout.mdl, go to the Model tab in HLMV, and you'll see the area where you can control submodels, like this:
5cda874f353268aa7cd16073f3cf6109.png
To remove the hat, change the submodel of hat to 1, etc. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 08:51, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks, but that's not quite what I am asking. Sorry, I should have elaborated. The files used to make scout's body no_draw also applies to the headphones. I'm trying to figure out how to show the headphones with the cosmetic while keeping the no_draw on the body. Gadddy (talk) 16:17, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
You know.... I have such a bad habit of overthinking things... Sorry for asking a dumb question. I went back and found the answer staring myself in the face. Anyways, thank you very much for your response! Gadddy (talk) 17:54, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
Haha, glad you got it figured out. Great job with those images by the way, they look really nice! Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 19:20, 6 January 2019 (UTC)

Gray cornea thingy.

Hey. Your edit on Help:HLMV is mostly right, AMD cards can have the same issue. However, in my case, I was able to fix the issue, while on NVIDIA it's impossible to do so. If you set hlmv.exe to "High Performance" on the Catalyst Center, you'll mostly likely get the gray cornea problem. I had this happening before and I got it fixed by setting it back to Balanced or lower. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:11, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

I tried the High Performance setting, but it didn't help - the fix linked on the page did, however. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 15:12, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Well, I meant, setting to high performance cause these issues, reverting back to Balanced or lower should fix it. My computer has a hybrid Intel and ATI graphics card, it's kinda odd, but somehow things doesn't break. User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:15, 2 February 2019 (UTC)
Oh, I must've misunderstood. I can't use balanced or lower either, because it makes HLMV very slow - but still, it's good to know that there's another way to fix this. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 15:18, 2 February 2019 (UTC)

Not only you've almost made all the Paint Variant Table images from above, you've been also making other ones along the way too, all of which look `great.

I have a few more for the ones that are "small" at the moment, please make those larger. Also, those were uploaded by myself long time ago, those were one of my first paint variant table contributions I did, please take extra care on those :). I personally think the rot and trans are alright for all of those below, but if you wish to change, go ahead (as for me, I'd keep the same rot/trans values).

Greetings, Vasya.
I did not know about the loadout.tf rule, my apologies for the NHBL medals models. Won't happen again.
I just wanted to translate the page at first, then I saw the missing files, I just wanted to complete the article, for it was left untouched since August, 2018.

You have more edits than I do, but I guess most of yours are text edits (although you have uploaded a ton of files too). I should also be in the top 30 users by edit count by now (Team_Fortress_Wiki:Reports/Users_by_edit_count updates on the first day of every month, so I'm shown as 33. there, but I have uploaded somewhere around 900 files this week).

Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 20:09, 15 March 2019 (UTC)
Oh yes, I did a lot of text editing, and my image editing were mostly Infobox images (someone has to do 'em), but I did paint variants for some items, and even did for an entire content pack (the one where they added the Banana Hat). Well, I started to like more after I got it, honestly, and... maybe you could join the Waterlogged Lab Cap club, there's only two members right now, hah (paint or don't paint whatever you want, I sometimes wish I could paint with other paints).

A few ones of your paint variant pics.

Hey, would you mind if I tell you a few of your paint variant pics that I think should be remade? No worries, I think all your contributions are great, there's just two items that I think you should consider remaking the images for. Those are, the Wipe Out Wraps, I think the lighting is odd on this one, and I think you could make it more angled it too. And the second one is Pyro in Chinatown (Full and Compact), I think you should add Pyro's Mask to the images (consider replacing the Style's images to have a consistent angle with the rest of the images). There's also the Arachno-Arsonist, which I mentioned before. That's it.
I also wanted to say that you forgot to add Head Hedge to your "Items I have painted". User Gabrielwoj Signature 1.pngUser Gabrielwoj Signature 2.png - User Gabrielwoj Signature 3.png 15:05, 16 March 2019 (UTC)

Bright light on Burnished Beryl painted variants

I noticed that a lot of the Madness vs. Machines medal painted variants seem to feature a bright shine, but particularly the Burnished Beryl, and as a result, in the Beryl's case, the images don't represent the gemstone very well. It should look something closer to this, I would think. If it helps, my stats to get there are:
Rot: (14.047998 20.529514 7.287695)
Trans: (15.000000 0.000000 1.000000)
Lightrot: (0.000000 180.000000 0.000000)

It could be the lightrot's issue, but I think this better represents the medal. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 05:22, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for letting me know! I redid the painted images for the Burnished Beryl with the same positioning and FoV, but with a different lightrot, moving the glare from the center of the gem to the side. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 08:26, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, that looks way better. I'd say you could stand to do the same thing for the Tempered Tourmaline medal too; just so that there's not such an immense glare directly in the center of the tourmaline gem as well. Some of these have a bit of glare in the backpack icons, like the Rhodonite medal -- but in general, you want to try and get these to look as close to how they're represented in their backpack icons as possible (with perhaps a different rotation to suit paintable section visibility), as that's usually the best possible representation of the item. If it looks too off from the backpack icon, like with this glare situation, it's usually a good idea to fiddle around with stuff and see if you can make your images look a bit better. -ThatHatGuy (talk) 10:31, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
I'll take a look at those too later :). If you have some free time, could you start with the page(s) for the RETF2 Retrospective medals, so that I can upload painted images for those aswell? Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 10:36, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Things I Still Need You To Do

These are the things I need you to do, after finishing my work putting every team-colored style into its respective infobox. (Gabrielwoj is taking care of some other things as well, like the Apparatchik's Apparel and some full-body shots.)

Cosmetic Page Thing Status
Bonk Boy Tuned In style paint table for consistency's sake, which should also fill in the style table. Try and match the Aerodynamic Classic rots, or redo those as well. Your call. If you redo them, using the Scout head materials may make it easier. Pictogram plus.png Completed by Gadddy
Conspiracy Cap Hat style paint table, which should then fill in the styles table. I guess you should use the Engineer head materials, because they're the ones that were there for the style table. Pictogram plus.png Complete
Copper's Hard Top Lawless style BLU image. You may need to redo the RED Lawless style image, and/or both the Peacekeeper style's team color images as well, for consistency. Pictogram plus.png Complete
Hanger-On Hood BLU "With Headphones" style image. There were no rots for this thing, so it might be best just to redo all of them, for consistency's sake. Here are the head materials, if you need them. Pictogram plus.png Completed by Gadddy
Human Cannonball BLU style images. There were no rots for this thing, so it might be best just to redo all of them, for consistency's sake. Try and get as much of the designs in the shot as possible. Pictogram plus.png Complete
Madness vs Machines Tempered Tourmaline 2019 Redo the paint tables for both the hand and the Gem Only style, so there's not as much glare in the center of the gem, to better represent how the medal looks in game. Pictogram plus.png Complete
Menpo BLU style images/possible paint table revamp. There were rots provided for this item, but whoever did it took them at a weird lightrot that I can't replicate at all, and it wasn't provided -- plus, they didn't take shots of the entire strap on the model. So if you're up for it, we should probably just redo the whole damn thing. Pictogram plus.png Completed by Gadddy
Patriot Peak Paint tables for every class. Nobody ever did these, but they should fill in the style table. Maybe redo Soldier's ones for rotational consistency, as well. Pictogram plus.png Complete
Public Accessor Hat style paint table, which should then fill in the styles table. I guess you should use the Soldier head materials, because they're the ones that were there for the style table. Pictogram plus.png Completed by Gadddy
Robot Chicken Hat BLU "Beakless" style image. There were no rots for this thing, so it might be best just to redo all of them, for consistency's sake. Pictogram plus.png Completed by Gadddy
Tin Pot BLU "Standard Issue" style image. There were no rots for this thing, so it might be best just to redo all of them, for consistency's sake. Pictogram plus.png Completed by Gadddy

How long did it take you to get the wiki cap and how many edits had you done when you got the wiki cap and also do you suppose that I could be enable to get a wiki cap soon. I have been work on something enormously big thing that I have been working on scenes December 2018 which might be finished tomorrow.--Doktorjan 16:18, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

First of all, quality of edits > quantity of edits. Second of all, while quality > quantity, quantity does factor into it. As of right now you have very little edits compared to other cap owners and if you were nominated you will probably get denied

The neutrality of Zombie Survival

I have moved the conversation here from Talk:Zombie Survival, to avoid having to deal with the broken new talkpage system.

This page mainly seems to serve as User:Jack5wikia's playground and advertising platform rather than an actual, neutral article about ZS, this applies to about 90% of the text on that page. @Jack5wikia as the "host" of the page is that an issue you see or not? if you dont reply i'll assume you're okay with me removing such stuff The preceding unsigned comment was added by Naleksuh (talk) • (contribs)
Some parts of the article look fine, but it should indeed focus on the gamemode overall, rather than talking about a variation of the gamemode present in only one server group. Linking to Steam Groups for the servers and youtube videos that people can just look up themselves in the References section doesn't look very good either. I don't want to sound too condescending here, but it feels to me like the sole purpouse of his edits is to advertise his ZS servers. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 06:40, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
What you are doing is not OK. From my knowledge, you are the only person that is concerned about the article's bias besides the official wiki moderators, who have decided to step in after your latest edit, and have removed a lot of what I have worked hard to maintain (which you also did in the past). If other server groups want to contribute to this article by generalising the phrasing that I have written down, then they are welcome to. Destructive edits do not help and cause me great issues having to deal with them. I am temporarily reverting the article to its original state, and will be working to improve how unbiased it is, but this wiki page is a very useful resource for Rushy Servers players, and I don't feel like it is a good idea to completely strip them of helpful information based out of fear of or allegiance to other server groups The preceding unsigned comment was added by Jack5wikia (talk) • (contribs)
Thanks for taking the time to reply! I know you have worked pretty hard on this, and I have to say that the article itself, ignoring any server-bias, looks wonderful. I also saw your latest edit which made it more generalized - most of the article looks good now. I'd like to apologize if I seemed like an asshole here. My main concern was and is the weapons table - it could be improved a little, and perhaps similar tables for other server groups could be added. As you seem to be quite known in the Zombie Survival community, perhaps you could reach out to some other popular servers so that they could do the same? Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 08:28, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
@User:VasyaTheWizard Why do you hate flow so much?
@User:Jack5wikia I still think it's a little biased as dated, but it's still definitely better than it was before. In particular I think the lead in article, gameplay demonstration, and strategies are fine, special additions and weapon balances seem to clinged to your server and should be changed, and the external links should only document sources. if that's all concerns anyone has, i may change it later today. Naleksuh (talk) 15:09, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
I dislike the flow talkpage system because of how buggy it is. Many messages don't show up at all - I had to refresh the page 8 (eight) times to see Jack5's reply. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 15:12, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────If I may chime in here, I personally think it being a "very useful resource for Rushy Servers players" is completely irrelevant, unless that is the only server that runs it. If Rushy Server players wanted a useful resource, maybe they should link to a domain like user/Rushy_ZF. As the page is about the mod itself, not Rushy Servers. As for the links below, Muselk's channel is completely irrelevant. I would even go as far as removing the weapon balances section, depending on how many servers run the mod.
GrampaSwood (talk) 18:40, 26 August 2019 (UTC)

The weapon balances on the page only apply on Rushy Servers, from what I understand. I haven't played much Zombie Survival myself so I can't know for sure. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 19:25, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
I'd personally say remove it, unless like 3 server groups run the ZS mod.
GrampaSwood (talk) 19:27, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
Even worse, other groups run the zombie mod but without those balance changes. Naleksuh (talk) 19:41, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
i think that the wiki is more important than rushy servers in this situation and if jack5 wants to put stuff up about rushy servers he can make his own wiki. Naleksuh (talk) 19:41, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
I will generalise the weapon balances table further so that the information is as presentable as possible. I have also spoken with Lazyneer and suggested to him that he could add a drop-down table to the article so that our two tables are both initially hidden and can be viewed separately.Jack5wikia (talk) 00:10, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
How many servers in total run this mod? The mod specifically talks about giving the owners the freedom of balance, so it's better to remove it to not confuse people.
GrampaSwood (talk) 00:12, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
There's no official plugin, every server has it set up differently. There are about 5 different zombie survival servers (counting as communities and not individual servers) and all of them work differently. I still think the stuff I listed above should be removed, and if not, at least remove all the bias put in when writing it. Naleksuh (talk) 01:43, 27 August 2019 (UTC)
The article should primarily focus on the mod/game mode without the need of mentioning other servers' ruleset/balancing; this is irrelevant to the article and should be covered by the server group.
Due to the game mode in particular having no official SourceMod plugin associated with it, and the fact that server hosts must do all the balancing themselves, it is to my conclusion that the balancing table be removed entirely in order to avoid any confusion and/or bias towards server groups. Any linking to server groups will be removed as well as this can be seen as open advertising/promoting. User Wookipan Golden Strawberry.png Wookipan (talk | contribs) 17:03, 28 August 2019 (UTC)
Alright, I'll move the weapon balances to a different place that's off the wiki. As for everything else, we need all the information we can get from as many credible sources as possible, and any destructive edits made don't help. Paragraphs that are already on the page have been there for a long time, and I don't see any reason why they should be removed outright.Jack5wikia (talk) 04:48, 29 August 2019 (UTC)
I don't understand how removing confusing information is "destructive". Naleksuh (talk) 05:08, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

But I realized that if I was going to give you an award, it should be something properly respecting the impact you had on my ongoing project, so it waited until this one. You made those medal pages look good, son -- real good. Maybe even the best.

A theoretical way to get Decorated Weapons.

Well, I'm not sure if the techniques you told me worked for you to get the textures from the War Paints, but there has been something I theorized long ago which may be our salvation. I'll put step by step on how it could be technically obtained:

  • Open TF2, set Textures to Very High, go to War Paints and select a War Paint you wish to extract the textures;
  • Get Process Explorer (an official Microsoft utility for Windows);
  • Create a Full Dump out of hl2.exe (right-click on it).

Now, here's a few more technicalities. EVERY Decorated weapon is 2048x2048, and the file size for VTF is corresponding to its resolution size. With that said, every decorated weapon texture has 2,66MB of size.
Knowing this, you may be able to create a script where it tries to find on the fulldump the following criteria:

  • Only search for files that starts with "VTF" as their header;
  • Knowing the first argument, dump every file that has the "VTF" header for the next 2.796.456 bytes of data (meaning: a file starts with "VTF" and ends at the 2.796.256th byte, in terms, "V" is at the 00000000 Offset and the last byte at 002AABA8).

If you are able to create a script that dumps all files that starts with "VTF" and is 2.796.456 bytes long, we might be able to extract all VTF files found on the dump file. There'd be a lot of "garbage" files, however, I have a thing on my PC that shows the thumbnail on VTF files on Windows Explorer, so it'll be easy to find which one are the ones we are looking for.

This sounds doable, actually. I'll try to do that after the paint script and the medal table are done. Killicon flaming huntsman.png VasyaTheWizard (talk) • (contributions) 19:22, 2 October 2019 (UTC)

Scunt page

Hey,

So I saw you deleted my post on the Scunt. Fair enough, I'm not gonna complain. But I kinda wanna ask a favour.

Is there any way for me to view it, just me. Because I really don't want to feel like my time was wasted. Now, this isn't me saying "aw pweaase put it back on the site" because if that's not what you want, then fair enough. I just wanna be able to see my project, maybe save it on my pc for nostalgia in years time, whatever.

The page has not been deleted yet, but simply marked for deletion. If you wish, you can move the information you had on that page to the Scunt section on Glossary of player terms, which is a more appropriate place for it.

Dear Vaysa, I grant you congratulations on your new "Kick the bad Guys" job, as a Moderator for the Wiki. It's awesome to look forward too what change you, as an new improved member can do for Official Wiki. Maybe in some cases bring justice over the user's that should try to brake the rules, or even harass others.
Here is an list you could use for justifying bad behavior on user's:
- Always take proof into an count, because most of the time people/user's ain't that well developed to fight back.
- Be fair and square to members, whom maybe forgot to read the rules or doesn't care, which in this case you take matters in your own hands.
- You should always be loyal for other staff members that also maybe could help completing your justification on victims.
- Take all time you need, because mostly staff members typically go strait to the point and ban them or mute, which is not always the case, exampel: quick hands, misunderstanding, harsh or even reasons.
I hope you like my list, that I learned over the years of being an staff for many things.
Big congrats, and I hope too see new stuff in the future. :)
Regards, BelCalm.

Hey Vasya, that white logo is a little grating with the background, however that is the logo they provided for our use. They don't have any other variants from what I can tell, but if they don't have any more suitable logos, I will make a more readable version and see if I can get their approval to use it.

It should already be updated to have an outlin (And yeah, mobile editing sucks).
