View Full Version : Custom team icons ?

11th Mar 2005, 10:24 PM
Is it possible to assign icons to a team or make some custom team icons ? I'm referring to the grimreaper and other images that are used to ditinguish teams beside team colours.

Yes, it is 100% possible, and I would like to find out how to get these and custom flags on a server to work...

I would assume making your own would be like getting custom crosshairs to work. My guess is you need a texture file with your icons in it and a U/INT/UCL file(s) in the System directory to get the game to load them. Not really sure though since I've never tried, and I don't have any custom crosshairs on this computer to check how it's done.

I know the Titan 32 person ONS server has custom team symbols, so I would ask them...

Tried this?


It's for 2k3 but might work for 2k4. The readme has instructions for the texture creation as well.



This was also mentioned on another forum:

I was able to get team symbols to display correctly everywhere (in the interface, on flags, banners, video screens, etc) by importing them as masked images rather than alpha'd images.

Instead of creating a .tga (or other) file with an alpha layer, I instead created an 8bit (greyscale) .bmp file. The team symbol was white on a black background. When I imported into UnrealEd, I selected masked (instead of alpha'd), and everything seemed to work dandy. Important note: things only seemed to work if the image was an 8bit greyscale image. When I tried importing a 14bit or 32bit RGB or a 2bit bitmap image, things didn't go so well.

I hope this helps someone!

It would be cool to see the UT team logos return. :tup:

The logos are obviously set by server, and for client to see the properly (even if they have this texture pack) you need toadd this UTX to ServerPackages
