I have been trying to get an insignia to work as a mod but when i get ingame to put the insignia on it pops up with something like "insignia not identified" and when i put the insignia on there is no image of it i can just select 856ba7e13a191b0cdd1cf0470ff17fd6.pngthe name.

How can i have the pathway wrong? I also tried making an icon folder because it says it is missing that but it still hasnt worked.
 

Pathway: D:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@novi\addons

class CfgUnitInsignia
{
    
    class insignia_test1
    {
        displayName = "Test Insignia";
        author = "You";
        texture = "\insignia_addon\icon\test.paa";
        textureVehicle = "";
    };
    
};

If you use this:

texture = "\insignia_addon\icon\test.paa";

Your addon should be:

Main folder:

@inisigna_addon 

first subfolder:

Addons

And in the Addons folder your .pbo shouldbe named insignia_addon.

In the .PBO you should have your config . Your .paa  should be in a icon folder.

I hope it's help if not i can provide you pics that's show basic organisation to create pbo.

in init fields you have to put this or use the identity fields. 

[this,"insignia_test1"] call BIS_fnc_setUnitInsignia;

Thank you for the reply but it still gave me the same issue even when i changed the names of the files. Thanks for trying to help.

the problem is that you are not on the p drive and your addon is not .pbo on those screens.

You must setup your p drive.

https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Work_Drive

And build your pbo inside it with addon builder or mikero's tool if it's not in .pbo an addon can't be read by the game...

Also i'm sorry to say that you are in the wrong place to post it as it is the Addon&mods complete section. your post more belong to that section :https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/forum/162-arma-3-addons-configs-scripting/

i don't know what the heck you are doing here 🤣 :

Simply run Arma3 Tools on steam and then run project drive management th little projectDrive window will pop up then click mount work drive and run.

After that you should have a new drive named p: (obviously) you have to put your folders inside that drive and for all your path don't include the "p:" (except when you are packing with addonbuilder)

Have you properly packed your add-on into pbo? What are the property of your image (does it have alpha etc...) and what texview properties have you setup (dxt1, Dxt5 or argb?)?

Also sounds like it might be a dimensions issue if it didn't load in the app itself. Make sure the dimensions are correct, i.e. to the ^2 - 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048 etc.

Also, double-check your path-name and the name of the paa itself because I've seen you reference it as 'test.paa' in your config sample, but then in your file structure it was called 'insignia_addon.paa'. Which is it? Both need to match otherwise you'll get the error you're currently getting...
