heartagram - love metel?? WTF! lol

heres wot u do.

alpha out what you want transparent in the image. put yr alpha'd .PNG on the root of C named orb.png.

fire up notepad and copy and paste this:

QUOTE

Texture MyTex
{
Source orb.png
Format D3DFMT_DXT1
Width 256
Height 256



save the file as orb.txt to the root of your pc C drive.

get a copy of bundler (dont ask) and put it also on the root of C.

then hit start/run/then type in "cmd".

in command box type:

cd c:\ (then hit enter)

then type "bundler orb.txt -o xbox4.xbx" it will produce the xbx with transparency named xbox4.xbx. insert in the appropriate .xip.

say 'voila', make a popping sound by clapping yr hand to yr mouth and yr done.

The 'blue' that you see in some xbx's is actually the transparency. By alpha i mean to make transparent. in yr image editing app you would simply select the portion of yr image that you want transparent (that u dont want to see) and delete it, saving it then as a .png.

and dont forget, the most important part of the process is the voila and popping sound tongue.gif
