char****.txt files for Player Pictures

Postby manutoo » 11 Dec 2007, 13:57

Hello,

FilipeMB is asking me this by PM :
>> what should i put in char****.txt file?

I'm answering here so everyone could know about this point.

The char****.txt files must be located in the subdirectory Data\Menu (that you need to manually create, coz it doesn't exist by default).
It must has 1 file like this for every player picture.
Usually, you'll have a picture file (.tga, or .jpg), along the .txt file, for example, like this :
- char0140.txt
- char0140.tga

The picture contains the player image displayed on his/her profile.
The .Txt file contains the displaying size. Here an example :
Code: Select all
NbSprite: 1
InfoSup: 1

Spr 0
{
   RealSize 85 150
}


It says that the picture should be 85 wide and 150 high in a 640x480 resolution screen. (if the resolution is higher, the engine will scale the picture accordingly)

You can also add this optional line after RealSize :
Code: Select all
HotSpot 0 -16

Specifying an Hotspot will let you move the picture on the screen, to put more to up, or to the left, or any place like you want...
In this example line, the picture will be moved of 16 pixels up, in a 640x480 resolution screen.

That's all, I hope it's clear... :)

Then, if I find a 80x160 pic in the web, then I should put 80 160 in this file, right?

just look the player in the rankings ! ;)
From the ranking screen, click on his name a 1st time to see his activity, and from this screen, click again on his name to access his character sheet...

I get an all brown picture. I tried to use the image in JPG, BMP and TGA formats and with all of them I get the brown picture. I tried another images, with a box os other color. I'm really disapointed.

Have you tried with jpg and then a jpg mask? This is what I did and it works. I just tried deleting a mask and it produces a brown square like you are getting.

The mask is a separate file that defines what parts of the image to display, as with TE2009/11 female shirts

the file is named like this:

char0xxx_mask.jpg

Here is an example from my image pack:
