    I was kicked here by eusiria, he said check tutorials and I did. Nothing there. So I came here. How do you change the picture of the minimap to something else? EX: DBZ Rampage 0.49c. It has a picture of a DBZ character. How can I change the minimap picture to something like that?

    import a tga file into your map, must be 128x128 or 256x256, and 32-bits.

    Name it 'war3preview.tga'

    Em, you must name it War3MapPreview in TGA format. And, yes, in 126x126 or 256x256 pixels.

    Theres 2 things that involve the minimap, If your talking about the DOta picture when you select the map in ghet game list, that can be done thru WE unlimited. If yor talkign about actaully in game, that can be done in WE Ulimited. THe second thing, you can plafce a picture that will go in your game, and you will see your character move around on the picture.
