Hello!
I have a serious problem with custom icons. When I change the icon set to a custom one, a black icon appears in the enemies and it does not take off, but when I return to the original icon set this does not happen, and I want to know if it happened to them and they have fixed it, or if they know how correct it. I would be very grateful if you could help me solve it

Apparently your first icon in the custom icon set is black background, not transparency.

This isn't a deployment issue, so I'm moving this to MV Support.

When the game draws icons, it uses the first index (or the topleft most icon) as the "blank" icon. So if your iconset has an actual icon on that place instead of just a transparent square, then that icon would be drawn over anything that was meant to be blank.

It's transparency

The first icon in the customized is transparency

The file name isn't "IconSet.png" ?

Or perhaps the issue is caused by one of your plugins?

The icon set is called IconSet.png, not cc.png

Does your iconset have an icon that's completely black? Are you using any plugins? Check them for a "default" icon index. I know a lot of people have this issue with one of Yanfly's battle plugins, because they typically add the plugin and expect it to work, not bothering to take the time to read and set up all the parameters.

I changed the name of the modified icon set to use the original. So the name currently does not matter.
The fact is that if I use the modified IconSet in a new project, the black box will also appear

The problem still persists if it is in a new project without plugins. And in the custom icon set there is no black box

If it's not an iconset with commissioned art or something can you post it here?

Try editing it in an image editor that supports transparency and delete the first icon. It might look transparent but maybe it actually isnt (due to encoding etc when the iconset was made/saved). Given that even on a project without plugins, the problem happens, then chances are its your iconset file that is the problem.

Well then this points to an issue with the iconset itself (we've ruled out problem with plugins). Maybe you should post your iconset which is causing the issue. Perhaps people here will be able to find the source of the issue.

Where did you get your custom icon set? If you didn't pay for it, you can post it here (or post a link to where you got it from if you didn't make it yourself), and we can take a look at it.

It still doesn't work, I guess it's because of the file size (3mbs) or the number of icons. RPGM MV has a limit of icons or can you add whatever?
