Would be nice if you could show us on how to make intros or just text appear on screen like in most mods begining :)

Make a video on something like windows movie maker.
Save it as, "Intro"
Go to your "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\<modname>\media"
(if you don't have the media folder make it.)
create a text document and name it "StartupVids"
edit the document so that it says. media/Intro.<video format>
for windows movie maker it's .wmv
save and close it.
download and add this file to your media folder. Here -
now rename "Intro.wmv.sfk" to "Intro.<video format>.sfk
save, move your video to your media folder, startup your game. =D
