View Full Version : Enlisted, NCO, and officer ranks messed up in game

I've been ignoring this little problem for over a year now, finally its just to annoying to put aside. I am wondering if anyone has the problem where the ranks on the enlisted, NCOs and officers are pixelated, "floating", and just do not look of the highest quality in game. I have looked at "Rank_DECO_ND.tga", which is where the ranks are, and they are of the highest quality. I am wondering how they come up in such poor quality in game ? I have played with the idea of making skins for officers and NCO's with the rank directly on the skin itself, whilist removing the enlisted sleeve ranks. Fuber's Crew skins mod is a great source of ideas so far. Any thoughts on this matter would be greatly appreciated.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I did experience the same problem with a custom sub emblem. Replacing the tranparent background with black did work ( it still rendered the required shape properly )... very strange!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I replaced the transparent background with black and I got a black outline around all the ranks in game and qualifications. Good thing I backed up the file http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. Any other ideas ?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Have you tried having someone send you that Rank file, maybe the one you have is bad somehow. I remember you posting screenshots, and I've not heard of anyone else having that problem, even at Subsim.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I haven't tried that option yet, Tuddley. My thoughts are drawing along the line that the problem occurs when the game loads the graphics. Just to give you an visual of what I see in my game, here is an image:

I'm trying to find which file(s) dictate where the ranks are placed and such...maybe I'll find an answer in there. As for now, I'm tinkering with my graphic settings just to rule out that possibility.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
