I was experimenting with the [PLAYERS] in icons.ini of javabowland my first test was just create a custom icon for Kyle the gnome daredevil from the pants. The reason I choose Kyle was because his icon would be easy to size so I set to work trying to get it looking good enough for an icon that can only be 20 pixels high. This is the result:

To use these icons you must save the still gif file as kyle1.gif then save it again as kyle1b.gif. Save the moving gif as kyle1an.gif then again as kyle1ban.gif

Place these files in your icons folder within pictures and modify your icons.ini file by adding this at the bottom.

This has the advantage for marking out particular star players on the field, so its useful on both sides. For the coach he can look on the field and quickly see where his star man is, but this also works for the opponent as well as they can quickly see which one is kyle. I will try to add more star players in time.:cheese:

Nice, sounds like with a bit of tinkering you could have a simple custom icons pack for the WBBL itself? *Mulls over Daemonettes and proper coloured Chaos warriors on the pitch*

Hoping I can join you all when I head back to Ireland. Will be working over the summer and motoring away on my GD entry but should find the time for a game or three again. :)

Aye Ten, make this into a patch and upload it on the server somewhere... but first make a complete south park group of pics...

Robocop was obviously a top choice fo me to convert. I first tried the robocop figure himself.

But it did not work well when on the bloodbowl field as it looked out of place with the other icons whereas the Kyle icon still looked ok because of it cartoon nature. So I just redrew some the mecca icons with robocop heads and I think the result is better.

http://img186.imageshack.us/img186/373/test1mh4.gif (http://imageshack.us) and http://img153.imageshack.us/img153/1735/test1anxt0.gif (http://imageshack.us) and

Save the still image as robocop1.gif and save again as robocop1b.gif in your icons directory. The first animated picture should be saved as robocop1an.gif and the second robocop1ban.gif

Now you can edit your icons ini file with this as your PLAYERS section

Is it only myself and thor using these. Are you waiting for your own star players to be immortalized with their own Kustom Icon.

havent bothered even installing it, i just use the downloadable patch with the stunty icons... i admit it would be atmospheric, but no point in making the changes for 1 player i'll be facing every 3 months

I will remember not to bother doing a custom icon for one of your players then. Respect the Mecca.

oh, i respect the work u are doing, but its too much hassle for 1 team...

i'd propose u create a new stunty South Park team, and provide the icons for that team, then everyone will use ur icons...

Now the two top players kyle and Robocop have gone over the 50SPP mark coaches should respect them and use the kustom icons.

Also as I said it helps keep track of where these deadly killers are on the pitch.

I have incidentally done a top ten for the spp on the front page.

The steaks where close to killing Kyle in there last game agains the gnomes. Was only a Bloody apo, that saved the bastard. Robocop too got quite a beating when he and the terminator where almost everything that was left standing on the mecca.

As you see... The Steaks respect NO ONE. Where others shiver in the sight of these players. The steaks grind there teeth and smell the cent of blood.

What bol**** the mecca were never in any danger. Having an AV of 11 means send them in to get rid of things like chainsaws. You were lucky the mecca were not up to passing their bone head rolls. the whole game was bad luck times bad luck on a team that need luck to get a draw. The only time Robocop has been in any danger is when he got 51 spp and had to take an ageing roll.

Lucky we passed hey th0r ;)

Yea I never really thought the mech vermin would be *that* good. But now that they have skills there true potential as stunty killers is apparent when you can't take them out in game and they take one after another from your team out.
