First, you need a program to extract the necessary files from the VPK files. I use GCFScape: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/GCFScape
The download link is in the description.

1. Download and install.
2. Start GCFScape and click Open.
3. Go to your Left 4 Dead 2 VPK directory: .\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead 2\left4dead2
4. Open it.

There's 6 posters you can replace, and 2 billboards, and the stage backdrop.

Here are the paths leading to the files that must be changed:
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_01.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_album.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_dusty.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_jake.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_ox.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\poster_midnight_riders_smitty.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\sign_fairground_billboard01.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\sign_fairground_billboard02.vtf
  • .\root\materials\signs\sign_fairground_stage1.vtf
Extract these files.

1. Now you need a program to convert *.vtf format. I used VTFEdit: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/VTFEdit
2. Convert them into a format you can modify like *.tga or *.jpg.
I preferred to export them as *.tga for my concert mods. (File -> Export)
3. Edit them or replace them. I used Adobe Photoshop for this.
4. Convert it back to *.vtf format. Open VTFEdit. (File -> Import)
5. Use the correct settings or the image will not show correctly.
6. Save it.

Then just drop them back into their directories and you're done.

Np, the VPK file you need is pak01_dir.vpk. Good luck.
