MOD - Your own menu background (How to export image to TGA)

If you want to change the background image in your mod menu, you must use the correct TGA format.

You could use the free app IrfanView, which has the option to export your image as a TGA file - it doesn't have a lot of options (it's the easy way). Of course, you can do that same in GIMP, but you must uncheck the "RLE compression" option (like on the screenshot below).

When you export your image, you must save it in the correct location:

Code: Select all

Original War\mods\<mod_name>\Interface\Menu\Honza\menu-main.tga
And this is all :).
