    Did you save your file as TGA, PNG or JPG?
    If you use TGA, make sure you dont save it with opaque channel.
    If you use PNG, I dont think there are problems, just convert it to blp with blplab.
    If you use JPG, well thats where you lost your transparency.

    I've made a supersimple rewrap of sylvanas's model with the high elven archer texture. Added eyebrows and a couple particles to the portrait real quick. It looks fine imo, but there's one doubt I have.

    Since I am skeptical that something this simple has not already been done before, but querying this thread with terms like "archer" and "sylvanas" yields nothing, before I upload, in order to avoid duplicates, I kindly ask someone that is familiar with this thread to tell me off hand if this is something new.

    Here's a couple pics of model and portrait:
    Pictures moved from here to the template for submission, you can find them in the 2nd post below this one.

    Looks nice. You'd be surprised how many times in the thread we've said "how could this not have been made before??"

    Very well then.

    • Sylvanas Archer Rewrap and derivatives
      from: SylvanasPortraitOriginal.JPG to: BEportraitPupils.gif
      (BE variant: example pic here above)
      Description: As per title: sylvanas model rewrapped with the stock archer skins: i've made a high-, a blood- and a night-elven variant. Mostly just rewrap for units, small mesh and particles addition to portraits.
      Update #1: didn't like the blank eyes so I added irides&pupils, and a blinking global sequence to all variations. (images in the screenshots have not been updated with the change, only this one above)
      For modelers - improvements that still need to be implemented: fix eyebrows clipping.
      Resource Type: Model pack
      Filesize: Size unaltered from the vanilla originals: a unit model weighs 150k and a portrait model 60k. The complete pack is therefore 630 Kb
      Credits: Cuore
      Path: no custom texture needed. Still lacking icons at the moment this post is created, and help for those would be appreciated.

    Cuore maybe you should try using the Sorceress skin, to create a boss version.

    Good idea! the top of the blood elven portrait is already using the sorceress skin, seems easy enoungh to try extending it :) If you get other interesting ideas I look forward to seeing your results :)

    Here's the result with the sorceress. I like the archer skin better tbh. I'm also sure it can be wrapped a lot better than this on the other hand :3

    hmm this is still unclear, do you see images like avatars or the borders of the forum frames? Do you fail to see exclusivelythe ones I uploaded? In that case just get to the resource database page, there's acopy there.

    Sorry for not giving image, I'm in a rush.

    This is the "Acid Bomb" projectile but with the bomb removed and only explosion remains, so you can use it as a poison-explosion special effect.

    More quick and cheap effects.
    AcidBoom_Chimaera = the explosion from Corrosive Breath projectile
    VengeanceBoom = the explosion from Avatar of Vengeance death
    AcidShockwave = same as above but acid-green tinted.

    Could some one take a look at making the HighElfPeasant_portrait.mdx use the HighElfPeasant.blp texture instead of the RoC Priest texture? I tried using the free tools and even Milkshape 3D and all it did was piss me off and frustrate me to no end.
