    Hi, can anyone help me turning the flag on this picture:

    Into a usable flag?

    Despite what it looks like on the picture though, descriptions seem to indicate the eagle should be very, very, very dark red, if not black.

    This flag is also a possibility...

    Ok, here are 5 different color schemes, let me know which (if any ) you like and I'll make a flag/shield/counter set. I will also work on the other, more complex flag

    T-hid, could you pls tell me?

    Ok, flags and shields.

    In both cases you start with a 2 dimensional "flag" graphic. 324x216 works best. There are several photoshop "template" files you will need (I will get all that stuff together in a zip file and post it ASAP). When you have the "flag" and the template files you will need to run a Photoshop "action" by loading? a .atn file. This file is basically a script that processes the 2d "flag" and outputs a finished HOI2 Flag or Shield.

    I do not have photoshop so I reverse engineered a Python script that does an analagous procedure for Paint Shop Pro 9 using the .psd templates. I believe that there are Photoshop readmes with the template. Also, a user named Mad King George on this board has a website with all the templates and instructions.

    Leader Pics

    find your headshot of a leader crop it to a .720 ratio (final size needs to be 36x50 pixels), resize the pic to 36x50, then paste it as a new layer into the leader_template.psd file that I will post. Then drop the picture layer below the border layer that is in the template. (the existing layer is the white frame that goes around the pic). Then save it as a 24bit bmp file named appropriately for whatever leader you want it to be.

    Counters

    Here I use a tool made by Andreas Schmitt (KeldorKatarn). Basically you can open up an existing counter, increase the color depth to 16million colors/24bit. Then edit as you please. You can reduce a "flag" to 14x9, or a roundel to 10x10 and paste into the counter. Save the counter as a 24bit bmp. Then go to My Computer and drag both your counter and the counter prototype (in zip file) onto the exe file (in zip) it will produce a new counter called counter_new.bmp that is in the correct game palette. Delete the 24 bit one you made and rename the new one and then put it in the correct game folder. Keldor has a good readme in th zip file

    Event Pics

    Easy, just open an existing one. Wherever you see green (green=255, red=0, blue=0) in the image, will be transparent in the game. Just find an existing one that has the right aspect ratio for the image you want, paste your image over it, then save as a 24 bit bmp with the name you want.

    Now for the files

    Leader Template

    Flag Template

    Shield Template

    Counters

    Hmmm, I think the second one looks best.
    And the second flag looks great too!

    Question

    T-hiddemen:

    Is there any chance that in some future you will make some background pictures for The Fallout Mod for about 2 countries? Of course we will supply with all materials?

    My First DD Art

    OK, downloading Doomsday has me more excited about HOI graphics, so here is my first Doomsday artwork, a fairly simple, but hopefully appropriate load screen

    ^ Thats quite weird T.

    I made some new load screens ages ago before DD was announced (I plan to use them for upcoming turtledove mods) that were quite similar in some respects.
    The first release version of the Settling Accounts mod for HOI2 DD for Iron Cross is now available. See my thread in the Iron Cross modding forum for pics and download link.
