View Full Version : Transparency issues. minimap,etc.

August 11th, 2014, 16:53
Hi all.
I'm trying to set my minimap so the non-playable surfaces are transparent.
I used the asset manager settings from both the tutorials here and from mapper's united wiki.
I tried dxt1,dxt3 and dxt5 with no success.
are there standard settings for both the .dds and asset manager to achieve transparency?
Looking through the images with the iwi viewer, I see some images with transparency using dxt1,3 and 5...

Sorry, but I have no idea how to do this. Free bump!

make the minimap image .tga 32bit and 1024 x1024 as 512 x 512 wont do transparencies

redo the material and add the new image to your maps iwd:icon_smile_beerchug
