    Assuming you have the pic and all you need is to convert it to .dds format, use DXTBmp

    You're looking to change the <Path> for the civ you're adding the flag to. Just point that to your new file and it should work without a hitch.

    Alright, I'll try and figure this out. Thanks for your help.

    I've learned so much about modding in just two weeks its ridiculous. I usually post over at Apolyton (which is where all the people I play "hang out"), but there is so much more info here at CF and its a much better site. But that's how it goes I guess.

    Anyway thanks everyone, if I have trouble with this I'll be sure to ask again.

    To convert to dds ? no, DXTBMP alone is enough, provided you have the pic in a format it recognizes (BMP or PNG, probably some others, but these are the only two I used).

    Where do I get the "border" from for the button then?

    You can use this... just make the black transparent and overlay your image, then make the pink transparent.

    I can't seem to edit this right, I pulled up the file using the DXBMP or whatever, and whenver I try to change the color on it it is just plain white in the paint program. How do I get it to show up normally?

    Ok, how many buttons are we speaking of here ? If it is just one or two, send me the graphics (size 56x56, the rest will be the border).

    Where does one find the *.dds flag files for the vanilla civs? I can save over expansion civ's flags, but the vanilla -- are they hard-coded in?

    You have to unpack the "Assets" FPK files in the Assets directory of vanilla Civ4. You can use a free utility like PakBuild to unpack those files.

    Nah. Get rid of smiling barbs. Totally screws the fearsomeness and unrealistic too.

    p.s. Actually, I had another look. It`s just the way the skull is so it`s actually not that bad. A `smiling` skull can actually look creepy- I think real pirate flags looked like that too. So I`ve changed my mind!
