Need some help with Custom Logos.

Why does this have to be complicated?

So tonight when Dhuran and I were putting the final touches on Undead Rising 2.0 I went to add the custom Logo for the Undead Faction and ran into a problem. I had made the Logo its-self a while back and saw how to add it to the faction definition in the Xml so I thought it would be a Non-issue. I mean, it's a simple picture, should be no big deal to add right? WRONG.....

I added the value for the custom logo to the undead faction and put the logo Png in the right folder. Nothing. Then I found the CoreLogos.Xml and added the custom logo to the defined ones there thinking that would fix the reference in the faction xml and it would see the logo....Nothing again.

So what gives? This is what kept me from putting my bad ass Undead Logo in the Mod and now it has to wait till version 3.0 or maybe I'll do a 2.5 patch if someone figures out where I screwed up. Here's the Logo I was trying to get in game.

That's in Png format so feel free to save it and try to get it in your game.

CoreLogos

Edit:

Kalandra has <PreferredLogoType>KalandraCrest</PreferredLogoType> in its XML.

Your logo in Gfx/Logos

Should I mention that I put my files in the Mod folder?

Quoting Wintersong,

Nada, I had them in the right folders. The logo was in the folder with the other logos and the xml was in the units directory. I either messed up in the logos xml or I messed up in the faction xml. Now that I have this example you did to go by it shouldn't be a problem in the future. I have some tweaks to UR2.0 I'd like to do over the course of the next few nights so there will actually be an incremental update to this one before version 3.0 . I'll probably call it UR2.5 . The Undead Keep is facing the wrong way, which bugs the hell out of me, and I want to add the logo and more clothing and hair options to the skels and zombies.

Thanks again for the help my friend.

I have tried Undead 2.0 adding the CoreLogos file into the Race folder (internalname of the CoreLogo as PreferredLogoType for Ravenloft_Faction_Custom). Works fine.

Edit: works in the Units folder too. By the way, does the mod affect Altar males' face?

Doh!!!! I wasn't putting the xml for it in the "Race" folder....I'll bet that was the problem when I tried.

LoL...well, the undead skin is set to work on that model type in the skins xml. It should have an incredibly microscopic change of showing up on them though when compared to the races normal skins. It was probably a fluke because you picked Strahd as the Sov there and he's set to lead the Undead. Very funny hehe.

Check the Edit of the previous post.  It works in Units too. I can try un other folders too if you want.

CoreLogos content (no matter if Mod, Race or Units folder):

Code: xml
  1. <LogoType InternalName="ZombiePowah">
  2. <DisplayName>Crest of Kalandra</DisplayName>
  3. <Description>For generations, the Crest of the Queendom has graced the banners of the ever expanding nation.</Description>
  4. <MainLogo>Undead_Crest.png</MainLogo>
  5. <RippedLogo>Undead_Crest.png</RippedLogo>
  6. </LogoType>

Ravenloft_Faction_Custom has (only thing I have changed):

Code: xml
  1. <PreferredLogoType>ZombiePowah</PreferredLogoType>

Seems as easy as 2+2 so I have no idea of why it didn't work for you.
