Custom pilot/squadron images
How do you get them to work? I have two images that I want to import, one for pilot and one for image. They're both in pcx format, and they're in the right place. And the game counts them as present, but when I switch to them, all I see is a blank screen.


This is in BtRL, if it matters any.
Wh00t!? Vinyl? Is it like an I-pod 2 or something?

Re: Custom pilot/squadron images
160x120 for pilot

128x128 for squad

If memory serves me right.

The color also has to be of some ****ty quality as well. But I forgot that.

It's right, but just to clear up confusion, Pilot images are wider than they are tall. (so 160 wide by 120 tall).

...yes, from the history of man, the first value denoted width and the second always denoted the height.

Why would it be a confusion now? :wtf:

That relies on the assumption that people reading this thread are intelligent.

This:

Proves this:
