    Why is it better to have animation files though?

    We finally know what M3H files are for. And we can mod easier.

    Post a M3H file. Is it just text?

    By the way could you attach those images to your post instead of using dropbox?

    In case something happens and your dropbox account doesn't work any more. Plus they're just general tutorial rules (I forgot to check earlier)

    The plugin link does not work for me. I have been searching for a decent dds plugin for quite a while now :|

    Edit: I found the plugin somewhere else :)

    One question:

    Must it be 119x111 resolution?

    Is there any programs that can compress textures/icons? Can I use warcraft3viewer or do i need a different program to nerf size?



    About map sizes in SC2; I don't think map size would be a big problem since bnet 2 gives you optimized download speed which is much faster than in WC3 download there bad connection limits dl speed.

    There is no need for compression, and i am sure it must be in that scale. Like in Wc3, Sc2 requires icons to be that scale. Check existing icons.
