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:

    that field is going to explode and though there is competition there is going to be room for all levels in the coming years imho.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Why are we competing for rough mornings? :(
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't want to compete for that, yall can have it.
  • Varine Varine:
    @The Helper I'm trying. Once I am more prepared to be figuring out school I'll probably ask for your advice
  • Varine Varine:
    Right now I'm just trying to get through the pandemic and figure out how I'm going to pay for it, and figure out what I need to get a job at Best Buy instead of a kitchen somewhere.
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    oy just catching up on the discussion above. @Varine yeah I usually alternate between claritin & zyrtec, depending on whatever my body decides to reject at the time lol
  • thewrongvine thewrongvine:
    the more I use it the less effective it gets over time as my body accustoms to it so I try to not use it every day
  • S songbird:
    Glad to see some interest in the IS3 NUON reprint. :)

  • The Helper The Helper:
    Thank you Carl for making that happen that just might be the spark we need.
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm confused and amazed that NUON and TWV's news postings are the things still active.
  • Varine Varine:
    Or Tom Mai, not TWV
  • Varine Varine:
    Whatever happened to Cheshire? Or Firecat, whatever his real name was?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've been using both claritin and fexofenadine or something like that recently alternately and that's been kinda working, I don't feel like my face is going to explode at least. Eyes are still itchy as fuck though
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    I dunno, haven't seen Firecat in a long while now.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    By the way, we have new file attachment size limits now.
  • Varine Varine:
    Are they bigger?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Yeah, new max size limit is 64 MB, to accommodate NUON-Dome emulation.
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I ever ran into a file size problem before. What was it before?
  • Varine Varine:
    I've had file type issues before I think, but I haven't uploaded anything since like 2010.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    alot smaller than that basically barely anything and it would have been different then 2010 because of the forum upgrade
  • Varine Varine:
    lol I forgot this used to look different
  • Varine Varine:
    It's by far the brightest webpage I regularly visit, the first thing I usually do is try to figure out dark mode.
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    If you invert the colors, The Helper Forums looks amazing
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    It still has that blue theme at the top
  • Ghan Ghan:
    There's no particular hard limit to attachments. "Something reasonable" is preferred to "a size large enough to fill up the server disk"
