I can't make a gma with map icons in it - A Forum Thread for Garry's Mod

I'm trying to make a gmod addon that adds map icons, and I figured out how to make custom map icons and where to put them, which works fine for me when I put them in my maps folder directly. But when I try to compile them into a .gma, gmad and gmod publishing utility tell me .png's aren't allowed by the whitelist. But heres the thing, theres this addon and this guy somehow did it! I just need help figuring out how to get around the whitelist like this guy did and be able to upload my addon.

    Should work.

    It must be 128x128, png, put into maps/thumb/ folder, named exactly like the map without the bsp suffix.

    If you did this ^ and is still blacklisted, maybe its has a different compression version or something. Load it in paint and Save As with another name (make sure you save as png)
