I know the ping is difficult to see and i have trouble with it sometimes. So i was wondering if the players themselves could alter the file and increase the size of the ping icon?

I have the file already made and waiting to use it, but i want to make sure i won't get banned for using it.

Just be aware that if you do so, you will not be able to patch, unless you backup the files you change and roll them back before the patch.

Well i now have an easier to see ping icon and i was able to patch the game with it after using it so yay!

If you want to use your own ping marker it is very easy to increase or even change the ping marker.

Just use Photoshop or GIMP(what I used) to edit the PingMarker.dds. You will find the file in the HeroPak_client.zip archive.

GIMP and photoshop both require a .dds plugin.
