Hi. I am trying to make a plugin that will add the Protoss Carrier from Starcraft to EV: Nova. I know that there is already a plugin like that, but I have Windows and the guy that compressed that plugin was a total truck (so i was unable to get that one to work).
Anyway, I am using a combination of EVNEW, SpinApp7, Adobe ImageReady and Adobe Photoshop CE.
My question is: Once I have made the spin for the ship I want, how do I make a mask and then associate it with the RLE image? I did actually get the ship to function like it should in the game, except that it has a white box permanently behind it since there is no mask to tell the game what to show and what not to show. I have an image I want to use for a mask, but how do I add it to the game using EVNEW? What kind of resource is it?
Some things I tried already that DID NOT work:
1. went into photoshop and physically deleted the white background.
2. tried adjusting the RBG levels under "Adjustments/Levels" to make a mask. could not get clean edges could this be a format problem?
I did finally get an image to use as a mask by opening the PNG spin file with Paint. Then I inverted the colors and saved it. Last I opened the inverted version in Photoshop and simply deleted the ship portions of the image, leaving a black "cookie-cutter" version of the original spin. Will this be able to function as a viable mask? how do I add it in?
