I read the tutorials on how to do it but I managed to screw that up somehow. So can someone tell me how to make a badge and a banner for DoW SS? I made a SM chapter called the "Angry Hornets" and wanted to make a badge/banner for them.
I didn't make it!
badges have to be 64x64 with an alpha layer, saved in tga format. Banners are 96x64 they must be saved as a tga as well. That's really about it. What exactly did you screw up?
do the easy thing, if ure making a banner, download one then put ure image over the top, if ure making a badge download one but then delete the image and put ure on top, if it has an alpha channel (most badges do) click selections > load selection from alpha channel > delete alpha channel, then use the magic wand tool to select around the badge u want, click selections > invert then selections > save to alpha channel save it as alpha channel 1 or the name of the previous alpha channel if u cudnt delete the old alpha chanel, thats wot i did, i havent started a badge or baanner from scratch ever...
I screwed up the alpha channel part. I was using paintpro I think.
i made this badge and banner hell easy, just by using this program by beezer, its like an unknown program, i tryed submiting it to dowfiles but they rejected it coz it wasnt my own so im gonna send the download link to any1 that wants it... Beezers_badge_banner_and_r.zip - FileFront.com there it is, it is the easiest way to make badges and banners and teamcolors to go with them :D
I'm using it now, I'll let you know.
yea thats good for making the badge and banner but if u want good quality ones make them on paint shop pro ssave them as jpg with a transparent background then just import them into it to finish it
It worked, but my image looked a bit sloppy.
mmm its best for making banners, if u want better quality badges either settle for square ones or make ure badges on paint shop pro or summit and define them clearly so big and neat on a transparent background, o yea and u can change the preview pictures for wen ure making a scheme color if u use the same colors as he did in a screenshot. this way u can put tau, dark eldar, necron etc pics into the folder and make teamcolors for them, wen u save them rite click on them and click edit, in it look for wot race its for then change to wotevr race u wanted it to be
Thanks for the help.
