(Up to File formats)

Worms Armageddon and Worms World Party allow players to use a custom image as their team's flag. The games come with many flags pre-installed with the .bmp file extension, but players can make their own and import them easily by putting them in the %installpath%\User\Flags directory. These custom bitmaps must have the following attributes to appear in the custom flags list within WA's/WWP's team editor screen:

  • is a Windows bitmap file
  • is 20 by 17 pixels
  • is 8 bits per pixel - 256 colours. (Some photo editing programs may change the colour pallet to 2 or 4 bits per pixel in order to reduce size, meaning some flags don't work properly. In order to avoid this, the file format should be set to 8-bit bitmap, not just bitmap.)

When making a flag, keep in mind that, during gameplay, the flag will have a 1-pixel-wide inner border, covering whatever pixels are at the edges of the flag.
