Logo in singleplayer?
« on: 23 Sep 2009, 13:10:05 »
Hello,
I know you can setup a clan/squad logo in multiplayer, but is it possible to do it in singleplayer?  Im just curious about having a flag on the side of vehicles and as such.

Some objects can display pictures in game, using the command setObjecttexture. It's a property of the addon/model. Back in the OFP-days many soldier addons had armpatches that could be changed this way.

In vanilla ArmA2 you can use setObjecttexture on the flags and the video screen, found under Empty >> Objects.

The image should be in .paa format and goes directly into the mission folder (or any subfolder of your choice there in)

To the videoscreen I could put JPG too, nut just PAA.

Correct. My mistake.  But .paa files are smaller and will load much faster

OFFTOPIC:
Just I cannot create PAA... :( I tried, but paa tools said, 32bit TIFF needed and my old PaintShopPro can only create 24bit TIFF.

Tried doing it on a tank but I dont believe its the same one as the ones being used from xml.  The picture will cover a certain area of the tank (like the entire top part or the entire track of the tank).  Also tried it on helo and got the same results.
