Hello there,

I created a few buttons with the icon 'question mark', this buttons are passives
How do I create the 'borders' in the button just like the 'train marine' and 'build supply depot' having?

Is there anyone left on this forum btw?

What kind of buttons did you create? Are these buttons for abilities and stuff on your command card in the bottom right corner or are they created by triggers as dialog buttons?

If you're doing command card buttons and your borders are not showing up, it's possibly because you're using a custom picture that is non-transparent and therefore blocks the border. The solution is to make the background of the image transparent.

And no, there's no one left. The people replying to your posts are ghosts ;)

yes I knew it was about transparent and non-transparent I can 'check' boxes but I don't know where to find this

It's not within the editor. I'm assuming you're using a custom image? You have to open the button icon in an editor like GIMP and make the background transparent. I'm not really good enough to guide you with that, but you should be able to find a guide for it if you google.

Well, I'm lurking from time to time, and I am considering returning to the sc2 modding scene, but I'm very busy with both a full time education and a job in the weekends. Combine that with a very active social life, then there's not much time left for doing stuff like this.

I havent even had time to fix my gaming computer, which broke down a year ago:eek:

    Didn't the backwards compatability have issues too?
  • Accname Accname:
    I never had any hopes for that. Blizzard is not the same company it was 10 years ago.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    It happens in corporations. They just absorb the companies they buy and it is not about the love of making awesome games it is how much money can we make with the least amount of cost.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Blizzard is watered down now hopefully they can pull it together
  • The Helper The Helper:
    they got a server engineer job opening :)

    I really do not want to move to California otherwise I might consider it.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah California is not anywhere you really want to live
  • The Helper The Helper:
    That is why I did not take the job Blizzard offered me back in the day, there is no way I could have moved my family there on what they were offering, not even close and that was like 20 years ago
  • The Helper The Helper:
    yeah they wanted me on the tech support team when they did not get me they got one of the next MVPs in Dinobot
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot was one of the youngest of the MVPs tkron probably could have worked for Blizzard but he had a good job in Chicago doing business programming already
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Dinobot probably still works for Blizzard would love to reconnect with that guy
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I wonder what ever happened to Wargasm?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    This new version of Xenforo really is awesome
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Wargasm is still around. He works for the domain registrar where thehelper.net is kept.
