Thanks for the great work Wyz_sub10 i haven't played it much yet... was having the flag troubles and playing without the flag just didn't do it for me. I had tried loading the game with and without the cache cleared... and with it cleared i tried both holding shift while loading and manual clear.. but to no avail. But after playing around with the .dds file i managed to solve my problem by removing the alpha layer and then changing the <bWhiteFlag> from 1 back to 0... and now that it's fixed... i'm in for a long night of Canadian civing Thanks again Wyz_sub10 For all of you still having problems with the white flag... if you have the tools to edit the .dds file and remove the alpha layer you might want to try that and see if it works... of course make sure you make a back up copy of the original file before you edit it. And for those of you who do not have the tools to edit the picture, if Wyz_sub10 does not mind.. i can post my edited file for you to try. Of course this fix workes for me... but i don't know if it will fix everyones or anyone elses flag problem.. but it's worth a shot.
