Are you already make _art.tga ??

if no. follow this..

1) go into Worldbuilder and load up your map

2) hit CTRL+F to go into top view, and zoom out until you can see the whole map.

3) go to the view menu and uncheck waypoints, object maps, until all you see is the bare map and the objects on it.

4) hit the Print Screen key, go into an image editor like PhotoShop or GIMP or PAINT
File - > New and then Edit-> Paste.

5) Crop the image so that only the map is selected. Hit Enter.

6) Resize the image to 512px * 512px

8 ) Save the file as a Targa (.tga) file with the map name and the extention "_art.tga

example: Map name = testmap.map

its minimap file would be


put it in the same folder as your completed map.

@ windows 7 :
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Red Alert 3\Maps\testmap
