View Full Version : Problem with banners and badges
12th Feb 08, 3:37 PM
Hey all I downloaded Hanger 8's banners and badges and they show up great in the army painter but are not showing in game.
I have tried increasing the ingame options settings and adding fullres_teamcolour=1 but this has not made either the banners or the badges show (although the banner colour is correct there is no detail).
I have had a good search around but with no joy, although it is likely to be something really silly any ideas/tips would be much appreciated.

Does it happen every time? There is a bug that occasionally happens where banners/badges don't appear. Never experienced it myself, it's supposed to happen online I think.
Are you playing with teamcolouring ON. If they show in the army painter, they are installed correctly. If teamcolouring is OFF however, you'll only see the default chapter colours ingame.. there's only a handful of those anyhow: Blood Raven, Blood Angels, Imperial Fists, Ultramarines, Space Wolves errr.. a couple more (I'll be shot for forgetting I bet ;) ).

the colour schemes work and they show in the army painter, the detail gets lost in game and although the banner colours are correct the images are not.
I did manually edit the teamcolour files rather then select the images in the army painter (although I checked they appeared correctly on each army via the army painter).
I will try selecting the banners through the army painter and then let people know how it goes.
They are amazing though the detail is stunning.

...the detail gets lost in game
Unless you are running fullres_teamcolour=1** (see below) in your local.ini detail will be lost, it's the way DOW works. When you say the images are not correct on the banners, are the images totally not correct (wrong/no banner on the banner pole) or just indistinct?
** Search the forums for info on the use of fullres_teamcolour=1 and it's impact on game performance.

I have the fullres_teamcolour=1 included in my local ini file.
It is just a background colour (correct colour) wiht two strips on either side (also appearing to be the correct colour) those that have detail or a more complex chequered pattern dont show.

Check that the badges are in the Badges folder, no subfolders. Check the banners are in the Banners folder, no subfolders. Fire up DOW, create a NEW scheme using the banners and badges you cannot see ingame normally. Does this new scheme appear correctly ingame?

ahh getting somewhere now. A new race works fine. Which suggests that when i manually edited the teamcolours that despite them being fine in the army painter it doesn't make them work okay ingame.
If i change to the next banner save then move back it works.
dont know why but will do this
thanks for all the help and the banners :)
