So, I'm trying to make some custom ability icons.

1) I go into WCII extractor, Extract out a .tga and save it
2) I use photoshop to edit that .tga and resave it
3) I use the import manager to import my .tga into the map
Rinse and Repeat for another ability

4) For both abilities, I go into the "ART-ICON" Options, choose "Import" and choose my icon that I imported (BTNNaturalDisaster.tga)

5) I go into the game, at first, it works fine, then when I choose one of the abilities, the other one goes green in the ability select screen

6) When I reach lvl 2 the other ability turns back to the custom icon I gave it. I select it and nothing happens.

7) Then when I use the ability I gained at first level, it uses the ability I chose at 2nd level instead!

What am I doing wrong?!

You have to import it as a .blp format I believe, as for it using the wrong ability I have no idea.

Ahh, I'll try that, thanks.

PS: CONVERTING THEM TO .BLP DID NOTHING ;/

you need two pictures: one for the "Ready to cast" icon, and one for the "cooldown" icon.

Prior to importing them, use the extractor to convert them into .blp's, and then import those.

After importing, double click on them in the import manager and select 'custom path'

For active: "replaceabletextures/commandbuttons/BTNbuttonname.blp"
For passive: "replaceabletextures/passivebuttons/PASBTNbuttonname.blp"
For disabled: "replaceabletextures/commandbuttonsdisabled/DISBTNbuttonname.blp"

Ah, it works now, thank you so much! :D

EDIT: Thanks again everyone! :D

EDIT X2: PS: It also turned out that the reason the ablities overwrote eachother was that they had the same STEM. You can't do that.
