If someone would be so kind to enlighten me on how to make side emblems, where they need to be placed and what is the ideal file and size for making side emblems. I'm not very qualified when it comes to making graphic designs and putting them in the game.

Thank you
Howard

Easy as pie. Be sure the picture you want is square, like 64x64 or 256x256. Change it to a TGA file. The Emblems are in Ubisoft/SilentHunterIII/Data/Emblems/Sub Emblems.

If you have JSGME, you can create those folders, and place your emblem in there.

It is that simple. If you don't have the means to change the format form Jpg to Tga, download Irfanview, a very usefull tool(thanks to RJ for introducing it to me). Open it up, open your Jpg or Bmp file, and select Save As. Down at the bottom, select Save As Type: select Tga(Targa), and select save. Now you should have a Tga file in the same folder as your picture.

Now place the Tga in the Data/Emblems/Sub Emblems folder(either one for JSGME, or the Game folder. I prefer JSGME, I keeps the SH3 Install stock when you disable your mods, which is good for making Multiple installs with MultiSH3.
