Mod idea based on a fun GBA game.

It's a problem of IE, for some reason the font size can become really small with it.
So it is either problem of IE to process the css or it's just Opera with its minFontSize (iirc default 10), which prevent this.

I think he wants to use billboard sprites in place of 3D models.

I guess, though he kind of asked for the opposite of that. You can do sprite units if you want to, JLHack.

Hmm, another possibility? Maybe requires too much engine work?

Particle being a 2d object (i.e. sprite)
Interactive being you can click it or hover over it as though it were a unit or feature (example: We could have an HQ sprite rather than going through the trouble of modeling it)

I use FireFox for the most part

So how do you make non COB units?

You can certainly make sprites. If you need any more artwork in that form, I might be able to contribute if I finish a few of my present projects.

No I mean literally what do I put in the file that goes in unitdefs (.fbi file or whatever) that basically tells spring to not use a COB

Why do you want that? You can make a cob that does nothing if you want, anyway.

that works too.
I just wanna know how. I haven't got as much experience with this stuff as others, but I learn quick with practice.

The question is, how do I get it to stick a sprite on the unit?

Woah, it's been a while.
Sorry for dissapearing, I was moving into college for my freshman year.

Now I'm all set, so I think I can get back on this.

Status: Once I get it sorted with Argh, I think we can just use Merc Squad's code, turning Score into CO Power.

Also: Bumpage.
PS: Is it a double post if the previous post was over a week ago?

Offtopic rant: I have Jake's theme from AWDS stuck in my head.
Last night, I successfully emulated Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn.
I have an external PC Tablet setup so that I can play AWDS and FERD like it was a real DS touchscreen, except its a lot bigger.
When I made the previous post in this thread, a few weeks ago, Sasha's theme was stuck in my head...

It is possible that I may be obsessed with games by Intelligent Systems. It's just a possibility though...

Are you still looking for model/texture help?

at the moment first thing that needs doing is the CO power gauge, then we'll make some units and add COs for factions.
