So the logo.paa works flawlessly on login.  But now I get "logo.paa not found" when I log out... what's different about logging out?  The size is 512x256 and it is definitely there because it's displayed during the startup.  I've seen this on a few other servers with custom logos (but not all).

It's an Arma bug. You can safely ignore it.

Hey. Im not sure how much you know, so Ill be as easy to understand as possible.

Create a folder in your mission file (Exile.Altis.pbo) called "custom".

Put your logo.paa in there.

Change;


loadScreen = "images\logo.paa";

to;

loadScreen = "custom\logo.paa"

If your having an issue make sure you have a .paa file.

Personally, I'dI use photoshop or another programme to create a .png image at 512x256 pixels (the dimensions are important) and then open it in texview2 and save it as a .paa

Settings:

RGBA and DXT1

Download TexView2 HERE

Thanks...still works.
