I remember seeing a topic about this a long time ago when Christ was a boy. Anyway, i digress - how can you import a flag to use
in the game itself ?

Make a bmp image 128x128 pixels 256 colors and stick it in


Then copy entities/insignia/lda.ent into


If you donot have the addons folders, make them.

for this example, change the name of the file to "myflag.ent"

the "myflag" type and name should match the filename.

and change the contents (bold faced and underlined typeface):

class = insignia
type = myflag
name = myflag

texture = textures/TeamLogos/what-ever-your-image-file-is-named.bmp

mesh = bannerh.lwo
mesh1 = bannerm.lwo
mesh2 = bannerl.lwo

cullface = 0
smoothshade = 1

Perturb = 0.5
PerturbScale = 1
PerturbSpeed = 2

Rotation = 0, 20, 0

solidlight = 0

sizebias = -2

Thats it.

You cannot use your flag while playing on servers which donot have your flag. It will cause significant lag for everyone else.
If you plan to host it on your own server, be sure that players can download it as the bmap will not get synched.
