Cardmaking Issues


Recommended Posts

This is maybe something for our graphics-specialists, Jahled and Antonius.


Ingame you can very often see the blue background of the small pics while watching the status of a character of a card of mine. Indeed I´ve managed it just once to make them transparent like the original are. But I have no clue how that did happen. :?


So is there any kind of hint how to make the blue background for the small pics transparent? Thanks, guys.

Who cares at all?! :roll:

To get the transparencies to work, the top-left pixel must have the blue color that you want to be transparent. I'm not sure why blue was used, but perhaps it could have been any color. :)

Exactly, as Evaders told.

U must put a pixel in the bottom of the picture, on the left side, exactly in the corner.

If u are using Photoshop is easy,u have only to pick the color of the background(that blue), and with the "line" icon to draw a line of one pixel lenght in that corner.

To aquire that blue color, go in REBED, save a picture wich have that blue color, open it in the Photoshop, pick that blue color, open a 400x200, and 80x80 and 61x25 and a 32x32 blank file, fill with that blue background, and then from the clipboard put that character wich u want , and the card is ready ;)

Ask me if something is not clear.


Wich kind of cards are u making ?

Allright, thank you. :)


All I have to do now is find out how this works with gimp. :?



I´m not working on any card at the moment. All I want to do is increase the quality of my cards so far, so that the blue colour won´t be seen in the status-window anymore.

Eagle, and JanDeis : lets give e-mails, to can send some remade Reloaded cards.

I've enhanced the looking of the original Reloaded cards, made by Lord La Forge.

I mean the fleet and space battle pictures...

If u know the Reloaded, u will see the differece.

I've tried to uniformise the characters, one to not be little, and the other big, etc.

However this is enough hard, coz manually and with my eyes i have to do this things ;)
