Code: Select all

\Path\To\BZFlag\data\
On Windows:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files\BZFlag2.0.x\data
Then just open the files you want to modify in an image editor and change them... then get them uploaded to the image submitter.

Your map file can reference files from the user's local data directory, so you can use the grass.png file from there.

Then you did it wrong. We're not here to teach you how to use Photoshop. Google "darkening pictures in Photoshop", or something.

There are hundreds, if not thousands of Photoshop sites on the web.

Yeah, but if you want to make it darker in PS, edit the brightness in the options.

Err, hope that could help... o.0

If you need any more help, just BZMail me in the GU League or Ducati League, or pm me here, and I can answer your questions.
