Adding an image to MapvoteLA13

Post by Pileyrei » Tue May 30, 2017 9:50 pm

Hi all

Ive searched online but not found all the answers I need for this question.
I suspect its an easy task so forgive me.

I'd like to add a logo to my MapvoteLA13 setup - the picture/logo that goes in the middle.

It seems you have to create a texture and a package?

Can anyone help me with some instructions?

Thanks
Piley

Yes, you have to create a Texture file - see the ReadMe.txt that comes along with MapvoteLA13.zip:

A: LogoTexture=ClanLogoPackage.TextureName
Make sure the Clanlogo is added to the Serverpackages aswell

It can be a bit of a palaver because UT is fussy about images formats. These pages give an overview of dimensions, file-type and so on:

Start a picture editing program like Gimp, load the graphic file, scale it to 128x128, convert it to 256 colors (8-bit palette), save the new image file in pcx format.

Now open UnrealEditor, click on Texture Browser button on toolbar, go to File -> "Import ...", open your logo pcx file, uncheck "generate mipmaps" and fill the fields: First for example should look like "YourClanLogoPackage" (it must be a unique name to prevent mismatches), second should be empty and third fill with "logo". Click ok. Save the file with the same name as you filled the first section, here for example: YourClanLogoPackage.utx.

Edit the mapvote config file like this:
LogoTexture=YourClanLogoPackage.logo

Add the YourClanLogoPackage to the Serverpackages in your system.ini file.
