this tutorial was in fedmapping (crazy name for a mapping site. kinda fed up isn't it)
So here you go my friend

developer 1
dev_overview 1
adjust the view with the keys
then take a screenshot
close the game or make alt-tab
copy and paste an existing overview (example anzio.bmp and anzio.txt) give them the name of your map
open the screenshot, select all, open the bmp you copied and paste your screenshot in it
then edit the txt file, the values are in the screenshot (at the uppper left corner, since you have developer 1)
finally edit the bmp to fit your taste. Green will be transluicid.

has a good template for the overview as for the overview itself:

add -dev to your .exe

developer 1
dev_overview 1

ajust the middle with your cursor
take a screenshot at 1024x768

write down all the numbers and what they stand for in the console

open one of the existing overview.txt in your overview/ folder
and add the numbers. save with the same name as your level

and done!
