Hi all, I created a new weapon, and I'm trying to add the new icon I made for it, but even if I imported it I only see the other normal sprites from the iconset.

How can I add my weapon?

Did you add a new iconset file to your project?

You can't see your new icon? How did you add it?

You need to edit the iconset that's already there, add an extra row (I think they're 24 pixels high), and add your icon there.

I started by copying the iconset and putting it to another program to add my weapon in the end of the list, then added it to system, but didn't work.
then I tried importing only the weapon to system clicking on itemset, but still didn't work, like I can see my weapon in system but I can't put it's icon.

Also another strange thing is that even if I try to work without using the icon, I still can't equip it.

the icon set has to keep the old size .. only up an down can be changed ..Screenshot_3.png

I would suggest going through some tutorials. It sounds like your not using the editor properly and not putting the graphics into the iconset properly.

tutorial video, tutorial text..
could you post screenshots of your iconset in order to find out if the size looks right?
-one with the whole iconset and another where the wanted icon can be seen

it looks like,you try to use 2 different iconsets , try to put the new icon on the old Default Iconset (pic 1) instead..
.. if there is no room left ,make the image longer but keep the default "width"..

Oh now it worked, thank you very much.
Now just need to understand why it doesn't let me equip the weapon.

Probably a wrong Setting,your actor must be able to equip the Weapon-Type of your wanted weapon

wow, Surface Tension is really one MF of an FPS level huh
So, I got let go from my current job because my skill set didn't align with the department's goals anymore. I have some hope, because I am currently in contact with a manager from a different department, and they are desperate for more employees. We'll see what happens... :kaoswt:
