How do you write stuff?
« on: June 22, 2009, 01:11:54 PM »
How do you write stuff on walls? Like, in some maps I see it says DS.  How would I be able to write Cipher or something in one of my maps?

you must have a image that is in either .bmp or .tga format, and they must have dimensions that include 64, 256, 512, 1024, 2056, and i think 1 or 2 others. (for example, a 256x512 image will work, but you cannot have a 93x113 image - look at the dimensions of the default textures in the editor for a reference on what can be used). also, the images must only have one layer (you will need to flatten bmps, but if you are wanting transparency you merge visible layers and use the tga format)
you can make pictures by using GIMP, photoshop, or similar programs, and then size and save them like above
after that is done, use this tutorial to tell you how to put your custom textures into your map
