RE:Template:RoleIcons[edit source]

I changed the links because they were all broken. Senescalzin Talk with me! 19:37, 8 July 2016 (UTC)

Ok, thank you :) --Forco 12:07, 10 November 2016 (UTC)

RE:Talent type Identifications[edit source]

Yeah, I can see what you mean. I'll go back and remove them over time. About the questonly & reward ones though, they are needed since some quests only have 1 part. Unsure why their contents are switched but eh. CaptainNecron (talk) 13:38, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

RE[edit source]

I liked that new tool, goob job! :D

PS: Would you upload the Valeera's Eviscerate icon? And also, how can I get the icons from the game data? Senescalzin Talk with me! 22:03, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I uploaded it. It is the same icon (currently) as her Slice and Dice and Expose Armor talents.
I use CASC View to explore the content of Blizzard's games and GIMP with the DDS plugin and Export Layers plugin. Make sure you have access to the Heroes of the Storm PTR region.
When you run the program, you do the following:
Export Data
  1. Choose: Operations -> Open Storage
  2. Navigate to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Heroes of the Storm Public Test
  3. Choose: Tools -> Search Files
  4. Input text e.g. *storm_ui_icon_valeera*.dds
  5. Select all the results
  6. Right click and select "Extract ..."
  7. Make sure you select "Extract plain name, ignore storage directory structure" or you will have to hunt the file down.
Open DDS in GIMP
  1. Create a new image
  2. Choose: File -> Open as Layers...
  3. Select the DDS files
  4. Deselect "Load Minimaps" and "Show this dialog"
  5. Press OK
Export as PNG in GIMP
  1. Choose: File -> Export Layers
  2. Choose target directory
  3. Press "Export Layers"
  4. And you're done...

I see that you can convert them from DDS to PNG without having to use GIMP. There is a program (I have used in the past) called Imagemagick. I will see if I have the time today to come up with a batch Windows script.
Refer to: Convert DDS to PNG using linux command line (SuperUser)

Re:Skin Images[edit source]

Thanks! That helped quite a bit. Esjael 21:38, 1 June 2017 (UTC)

I have been using the images in the reddit post and cropping them. I'm not sure if I'm doing everything right and I apologize if I'm not! However I think I'm done uploading images- as in there are no skin images left that are missing until new ones come out. When more come out, I'll let someone else upload them. Thanks for letting me know -- Esjael (talk) 9:38, 5 June 2017 (UTC)

I'm very sorry, I did not realize. - Esjael (talk) 12:50 5 June 2017 (UTC)


Zerg units[edit source]

Hey! How did you made the images of the zerg units? Is there some kind of model viewer out there? Thx! --LemonBaby (talk) 15:02, 12 July 2017 (UTC)

They are just StarCraft 2 models. I am going to try to get around to grabbing images from within Heroes because, they all are modified with cybernetics. — Rmkane (talk) 12:16, 17 July 2017 (UTC)

Missing Images[edit source]

Would you happen to know where the icon for Anub'arak's Debilitation talent and Tyrael's Infernal Demonic skin are? I would like to clear the Category:Pages with broken file links log and these images appear to be missing.

Thanks. -- MetricTrout (talk) 00:34, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

I will upload the 4K version of Tyrael's Infernal Demonic skin later this afternoon. Does not look like I uploaded one. — Rmkane (talk) 11:47, 14 September 2017 (UTC)
Great! There also appear to be quite a few missing image links in the Mount and Portrait pages. In particular, the Orochi Hovercycle Cyber is missing, as well as the Epic Elemental Stags. In addition, Kel'thuzad's unique mount and the previous season reward Grizzly's are also missing. As for the portraits, most of the missing portraits appear to be newly added with the most recent patch.
Also, several heroes had talent changes with the previous patch. When we get around to updating these heroes to include the changes from that patch, there may be new icons that need to be uploaded. -- MetricTrout (talk) 02:50, 18 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, I don't have the seasonal rewards. Someone will have to upload those. I would like to upload the 4K versions. I have not glanced over the talent changes in a while. — Rmkane (talk)
I just updated Chromie's page for the September 5 patch, and her Here and There talent icon needs to be uploaded. It seems that Lt. Morales also received some new talent icons that will need to be uploaded when we update her page. -- MetricTrout (talk) 21:05, 23 September 2017 (UTC)
Can you please upload the Triglav Protectors Abilities while you are at it? Thanks a lot!--LemonBaby (talk) 06:59, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
I updated Lt. Morales's new talents. She has 3 talent icons that need to be uploaded -- MetricTrout (talk) 03:06, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
I will update her data page later today. — Rmkane (talk) 12:09, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
