I've been adding new units, and I'm now looking to add icons. I've made the icons, and added them into the game, but they have a black background. I'm using GIMP, and I've added an alpha channel, but still no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

you have to add transparency to the backround, one way is to go to lighting effects.
I'm cooler than you. :p

Woot?! I have no idea what u said. I use GIMP 2.2 and somehow I got a backround that was all checkered (no idea how I got that) and so when I erase to the backround I get exactly what I want. (If that didn't make sense then someone shoot me.) It's late, what can I say.
*headdesk* I can't figure this out. When I use the transparent background, the whole image gives way to a checkered thing. Sorry, I'm still new at this.
Nevermind, I finally figured it out! Thanks for all the help.

the 'checkered background' basically means that that part is transparent.
