    Arrow [Tutorial] How to change Race Icon at Character Section


    Register to remove this ad
    Ever wondered how the hell you can change the icon of a race at the character selection screen? Ever needed this for your custom race?
    Look no further! In this guide, I'll be showing you exactly that!


    What you need:
    My Warcraft Studio ----->
    BLP Converter ----->
    Paint or something similar like Gimp or Photoshop


    Step 1:
    Open up My Warcraft Studios -> Pack(P) -> Edit MPQ archives



    Step 2:
    Open up locale-enGB/US.MPQ file in your enGB/US folder.



    Step 3:
    You'll see loads of folders now, open up 'Interface'


    Step 4:
    Go to 'GLUES', then 'CHARACTERCREATE' and pick
    UI-CharacterCreate-Races.blp



    Step 5:
    Right click on it, select 'Extract File to...' and put it on your desktop



    Step 6:
    Open up the folder you saved your BLP converter to and drag the blp file ON it. It will create a PNG file on your desktop.



    Step 7:
    Now right click on the PNG file, then 'Open with..'. In this guide we will be using something simple like Paint. Then open it with Paint.



    Step 8:
    Now that your picture is open, select the well uh.. Select in your paint. I marked it with a red square.



    Step 9:
    In this guide, let's change the gnome icon to a worgen icon. Just select the gnome icon with your select thingy.



    Step 10:
    You better get your picture ready you want to replace the gnome with. I got mine ready. Just select edit and then 'Paste from...' and add your picture.



    Step 11:
    Uh-oh. Looks like my picture is too big. No worries, we can fix that!



    Step 12:
    Go to 'Image' Then select 'Stretch/Skew' and modify it until it fits.



    Step 13:
    Now go to 'Save as...' and save it on your desktop, BUT! Remember to save it as a PNG file. It will ask if you want to replace it. Replace it.



    Step 14:
    Now drag the PNG file ON the BLP converter and it will replace the blp file you saved on your desktop earlier.



    Step 15:
    Now open up your custom MPQ file, or make a new one. Then click on
    'Pack(P)' and choose 'Add file to archive..'



    Step 16:
    Now open up the updated blp file from your desktop and select 'Open'. Don't click on OK yet!!



    Step 17:
    Make sure you have 'Interface\GLUES\CHARACTERCREATE\' infront of
    UI-CharacterCreate-Races.blp , Now you can click on OK, and then save the MPQ file. Once that is done, put the MPQ file in your
    'World of Warcraft\Data' folder.



    CONGRATULATIONS! You have replaced a race icon with your own custom one!
