  1. Can you put a .gif image, though?
     
  2. I will need a tutorial of that, could you provide one?
     
  3. thanks for posting. I've been wondering how a lot of servers have been doing that..but havent really stopped to ask. :)
     
  4. if anyone need i can make cool images for servers
     
  5. Do you make images for youtube pages? i have an idea for how i want my banner to look on youtube and have been working on a design for about month now with windows paint, and in game by building what im doing with paint in game. :)

    but, i could def. use some help to spruce up my youtube page a bit more.
     
  6. Just so you guys know, no conversions tools are needed (for most formats - png)
    In Windows, enable file extensions and change from <picturename>.<genericformat> to <picturename>.png
    In OS X, do the same, but file extensions are enabled anyway (or mine was when I did it)
    Sorry, I've never used Linux in my life.
    P.S. allow any warnings, not much can go wrong except corrupting 1 little picture file
     
  7. Any help would be greatly appreciated.. I have read and tried everthing that was suggested here. I still am unable to get the server icon to work, please help. Thank you

  10. Yup. Just name it server-icon.png and it should work fine!

    Updated the prefix to include 1.8 since this thread racked in over 166,000+ views and is a top Google search result.
     
  12. Thanks I was wondering how to do this.
     
  13. So basically it works like in vanilla, doesn't it?
     
  14. Thanks mate, helped out a lot
     
  15. I uploaded a picture and its a 64x64 and its named server-icon.png and the first day i uploaded it it worked and the second day it stopped working. I tried to rename the picture to server-icon and it still didn't work. The picture is transparent i don't know if that effects anything tho. Any help? And i double check the properties and it said 64x64. I do have an error and that is my wifi bar where my server is if i hover over that it says out dated client (meaning i have a plugin that is 1.9).
     
  16. This thread is a good tutorial :)
