Hello everyone, i'm trying to use weapon translations. I already used it ALOT of times for monsters, but never for weapons. So i try using the basic format in my custom weapon: "Translation "112:127=181:191" (Example) so it doens't work. but THEN i go to the weapon sprite and changes mannualy, it appears normally (The image of the sprite translated in color remap) so i click OK and it doens't work either! Any help?

You don't.

Well, you can do it perfectly fine for the pickup sprite, but the hud sprites can't be translated.

At least, not in that way. You can still use translations for other kinds of graphics, like view sprites, by creating clones of them in a Textures lump. Or, if you never, ever need the sprite in its original coloring, use SLADE's Color Remap tool.

Can't you just translate them with color remap and then save them as re-mapped truecolor PNGs?
