This is getting really frustrating for me. ive tried everything to make a minimap, icon, and loading screen work for my map, but every time i load the map it doesnt work. i put everything in the right folders and followed instructions given by others but for some reason it just doesnt work. im done asking for help so could someone do it for me? I've put all the files back the way they were and the names are the same as when they were created. i can send the files to someone that is willing to help. it would be really awsome if someone could do this for me cause the maps almost done besides a few things and im thinking of uploading it if it works.

how doesn't it work? That's the best thing to ask. You probably are doing something badly and that's why it doesn't work.

idk, i took the screenshots from the mission editor, croped them corectly, rotated the mm, resized them to the correct sizes and saved them as .tga files with my mapname as the file name. what i really dont understand is why the loading screen doesnt work cause that should be the simplest. i took the screenshot from the game and saved it in the folder called 'loading' in my mp folder with the correct. it just showed a pink screen when the map was loading. i even tried putting all the files for my map into a separate folder inside the mp folder with a folder in there called loading and the screenshot in it. it still didnt work. also, i dont know if this would have anything to do with it or not, but i bought the game from direct2drive.com and downloaded it. is it possible that this only works with the disc version, not the digital version?

did you give the targas an alpha channel and saved them as 24bit?

And no, digital, disc version makes no difference.
