Icons!!

I want to change the icons for the units in Empire at war and add some icons to the models i have. I can see the the icons line in the XML file, e.g

<Icon_Name>i_button_atst.tga</Icon_Name>


But i don't know where the .tga files and how to change them

I have seem that some mods have managed to do this.

Please Help!

The icons are packed into MT_COMMANDBAR.TGA and MT_COMMANDBAR.MTD.

Use my MTD Editor tool to manipulate these two files.

Just create the icon(s) you want in a seperate TGA file, with alpha mask and everything. Then use my MTD Editor to insert them into the MT_COMMANDBAR file pair and you're done.

Oh, and make sure to put the altered MT_COMMANDBAR files in the proper directory. i.e., GameData\Data\Art\Textures, or somewhere in the Mod Path.


PS: You may see tutorials floating around on the web that talk about using MTDEdit and remembering coordinates and hex editing and stuff. Ignore them.
MTDEdit is another editor that's not as sophisticated (as blunt as it may sound) as my editor.
