Hi, I've tried to make a build button for a construction ship. I used Photo Filtre a paint program. I cut out a picture of the ship and put it on a rough buildbutton - it looks ok and I saved it as tga, but it doesn't work in game. So what was wrong?:confused:

You may have the wrong size, build buttons (when made) photoshop, paint shop pro etc have to be 64x64 for them to show up in-game i think! What was the original image? if its a .bmp you should be ok but once, i had a .gif with transparency and changed it to a .tga and it screwed it right up!

It has 64x64. And I first took a screenshot of the ship then I cut it out and put it on another empty buildbutton.

no... I'll tell you the complete story: I replaced the old construction ship with a new one. But there was no builbutton for the new construction ship so I decided to make one on my own. I only replaced the old button with my own.
