Making an icon should go by these standards:

- JPG or PNG - 128x128 ONLY.

And unfortunately, without the game's bare source you won't be able to create animated icons.

256x256 would also work:)

Err, actually you can use a shader to create an animated icon, well I think you can. Look at the shader file and the effects file of the bowcaster hit effect, it's fairly self explanitory. HOWEVER: I don't know if this will work on an icon.

actually higher than 128x128 wont work weather its a power of 2 or not, it just wont show up in the menu, the power of 2 rule is for textures.

/do you think you can let it work? :)

In a word - no. It needs to be JPG format to work in the game. You might be able to lay an effect over it with shaders, although I'm not entirely positive that will work as I've never gone as far as to bother with it. Animated icons are just an unnecessary distraction for anyone intending to actually play the game, as opposed to using it as a 3D chat room. The player's focus should be on the game, rather than on some little blinking thing in the corner.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
