    Thanks for the rep++.
    It took me between 2 and 3 months to create and post it here. And no, I am not crazy. I know this because every night when I go to sleep I sleep knowing I am a proud man for the people I helped and for the world I made better. Can you say the same or aren't you crazy enough ?

    Time is counting.

    Amazing tutorial, but one thing I noticed and had to figure out myself:

    The vanilla races use regular DISBTN icons for their autocast icons, i.e. the autocast DISBTN icons don't have the corner brackets that the regular autocast BTN's have! This causes unresearched autocast spells to not show the autocast corner brackets as well!

    I want to make an addition, perhaps you could add it, Flame_Phoenix. It's about the section "Fix an Icon", "Fixing green icons", point 4 (import path). I was in need to use subfolders if possible, like:
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element1\stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element2\stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element3\stand.tga
    ...
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\element1\stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\element2\stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\element3\stand.tga
    ...

    But subfolders do not work, at least not the way like shown above. What works is solely using subfolders for "ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\..." like:
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element1\stand.tga
    ...
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\stand.tga
    ...

    Wc3 searches in folder (without subfolders!) "ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\" for respective button names given from folder (with subfolders!) "ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\".

    So this isn't solving my problem, as the different "stand.tga" files under path "ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\" would replace each other.

    To cut a long story short, using subfolders isn't working for buttons in need of disabled versions. In this case you have to use different names like:
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element1_stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element2_stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtons\element3_stand.tga
    ...
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\element1_stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\element2_stand.tga
    ReplaceableTextures\CommandButtonsDisabled\element3_stand.tga
    ...

    Just wanted to clarify, as I couldn't find an answer to this question yet.

    Typofix Mk. II :)

    Beautiful tutorial. I remember reviewing this years ago. I noticed you fixed all the typos I listed last time. Except these three somehow eluded your scrutiny:
    Explanation: "Irfan" is the dude's name (who made the program Irfan View (or iView)
    THW is just HIVE now. But HiveWorkshop still works. Or Hive Workshop (two words)
    Google is a newly registered verb (most dictionaries have added it in their latest edition). "goggle" is a very old word and means something else. Not searching, but staring / monocle / half of a pair of sunglasses or other eye-wear.
    Thank you.

    p.s.: The [broke] bbcode tag you used at the top is, funnily enough, broken:
    +Rep'd you anyway. (Does it count as a +2 if I already +red'p some years ago? Because I did.)

    Instead of using W3IR, can I use Button Manager v1.8.2 instead?
    Edit: I still can see the icon but not sure if it works when using on an item
