Hi all! How do I make the little black bar at the bottom of the thumbnail picture in the map selection screen go away? I know their supposed to be transparent or something, but I dont know how to do this when creating the image in Photoshop. So far I`ve just used thumbnails from other maps, but now I want to make my own. I have tried just copying an image on top of another working thumbnail, but I still cant get it to work. Oh and the image dimensions are 128 X 128 pixels, but how much of that is the actual image and how much is the black bar? Cheers!

copy the alpha channel from another thumbnail.dds to yours, then make sure you save with a 1bit alpha channel

Remember that you must save it WITHOUT Mipmaps, if not the players that use 800x600 resolution will see it pixelated

make your pic 128x96 in size.... and copy/paste it onto a transparent 128x128 empty pic. make sure you set your pic at the top. with empty area across the bottom, under your pic. then save it as a .dds file.. after which add it to your map
