Another spray topic
So. Basically I do everything right. The transparent spray is working and I have only one problem.
When using VTF (and the other valve filetypes) made from PNG using Nem's tool or spraygen I have to reload it every game, because it doesn't show. Seriously every single game I must open up options and choose the VTF. File is good size and weight.
When using targa file I cannot make a transparent VTF with the tools mentioned above. I have to upload the TGA every time and it's not making any VTF automatically.

I've never head this problem in the game, and it sound wreid... If you're able to use your spray, that means filetype is correct...
Check your autoexec.cfg file (in \Steam\SteamApps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\left4dead2\cfg) and add there your spray location like this:

cl_logofile "materials/vgui/logos/custom/spray.vtf"

Didn't look like autoexec problem. Checked with another file with simple name. Nothing. Graphics still in display in options, but all I get is spray sounds at most.

Check if your synchronization with Steam Cloud is enabled (in game options, last sub-option)

What is your problem? You can import any image file 256x256 bmp or pngas a spray.

Actually the problem is I can open only JPG or Valve Files. That's first. Second, when I do any logo I have to reupload it every single launch. Can I be any more clear?

My suggestion is to go with something like paint, modify it into its 256 pixels, save it as a PNG, and then convert it via: http://www.online-utility.org/image_converter.jsp?outputType=TGA

I've had no problems generating sprays with this method.

Targa is the same problem. I've used converters and PS, playing with channels and other options. Is my game simply fked up? -.- It's not that serious, but annoying. All is working, but only after reloading :|

If you want to use TGA format, you must remember it must be setted as 32 bits... Also your image has to be square...
Try to disable Steam Cloud synchronisation, then restart the game and set this on again...
Also, some areas are unsprayable, even if they're flat and looks as perfect location for a spray. Use walls in saferooms...

And how do you choose your spray ? There are actually two options for that:
Set Spray and Import Spray, I think you should first try to import one and after that select it from list (custom ones)...
Also put your spray somewhere in L4D2 location...
