Don't forget to put the badge into your final map. :ironic:

Uhm...guys what's happening here?
I can't upload pictures any more.
The upload part under the write-editor is missing for me :???:

EDIT----------------------------------------
Then I use my picture uploader.

What do you think guys?
It's not resized and not converted into pcx (and masked).

And here is the Badge as utx file.

I hope everything went well.
Thanks to @Metalfist 's little tutorial :mrgreen:

that download link sends me to a website with a fake virus alert pop up!

could you upload it somewhere less dodgy? Drop box or something? Looksgood though!

Just save the posted picture, convert it to tga and import it. It takes 0 effort and 1 minute of time.
You must construct additional pylons.

Hm??? ... filehorst is a German trusted uploader. What browser do you use? Oh wait ...I uploaded the utx directly maybe this is the problem.

I don't have a dropbox account and don't want to use google stuff for this. Is Mediafire ok?

You mean bmp? If no, I didn't know that tga works as well.

if the laptop I use for Ued wasn't a complete piece of **** then yes i would! If I open photoshop on it to convert the picture It may explode!

I followed the link on my mobile browser. tried a few times but keep getting one of those fake "you have a virus" popup

currently don't have a better pc to work from! Suppose i could do it work, but I'm a bit busy

@Eviltom PMed you the Badge ...for everyone else: Do you have the same problems with my uploads?
Dr.Flay wrote:I just tested your permissions @Papercoffee, and no file uploader visible.
Is any one else missing the ability to upload ?

I can see recent forum changesby Shade and Gecko in the logs but nothing stands out.
May have to ask "Shade"
I think I know what it is ...I don't have permissions to upload files in an announcement thread.

You can convert it to bmp with PAINT.

I meant tga for transparency reasons, but you can do it with bmp and just mask everything I guess.

you can't convert it to an adaptive 256 colour palette though, so the colour quality would be awful! iv converted it at work now anyway so problem solved! :mrgreen:

Ok, two questions:

1. @sektor, why converting the PNG when I created a working UTX already?

2. @staff-crew ...WHY I'm the only one who can't upload stuff to this thread??
I thought this was a global problem but sektor could upload his files.

I read previous posts about troubles, well... I don't have many (except some black around - I should see UTX and for which reasons I have black around circle)...

How I would do this
· Convert the logo and texture you want to put it on to .png & True Color.
· Using transparency, place the logo over the texture.
· Convert the now logo'd texture to .pcx & 256 colors.

It always works when I do it, no muss and no smudges.

hi gecko can you please add me to participant list. I am making a map and this time I promise download size will be under 25 MB and I will use 128x128 textures instead of 4096x4096. Also i will use around 5 files this time instead of 20 :loool:

I downloaded german UTX :mrgreen: and then I dropped it in MyLevel - very cute and no flaws. Also in game it do looks nice, no complaints.

Now attention, please - see textures packed by Funky, I gotta admit some of them blocked me in Editor for more than half an hour being really nice. I couldn't stop looking at them, they are good for MyLeveling too.
